After building a career in high-end Los Angeles real estate, celebrity realtor Mary Bonnet of Selling Sunset is justifiably proud of her own home. The Netflix reality star has taken to Instagram to show off the closet organization in her California house, and the photos are swoon-worthy.

Mary’s stylish closet features built-in glass cupboards, natural wood cabinets, and sky-high shelving for shoe storage. An island for jewelry and accessories gives the stellar organizational space a department store feel. Natural features like a large window and greige hardwood flooring warm up the room.

We consulted Suzanne Roynon, H&G’s Interiors Therapist to tell us about the stand-out elements of Mary’s closet, and how we might emulate her look in our own homes. First, Suzanne expressed admiration for the hanging elements of the closet. Suzanne encourages her clients to hang clothing articles by type, length, and color. She says ‘this is both visually rewarding and makes finding the precise item you want simple and stress-free. Mary’s open hanging space is an excellent example of this, and you’ll find blouses, jackets, skirts, shorts, and dresses displayed harmoniously by type and shade.’

Suzanne recommends choosing matching hangers in a velour-coated style to recreate the look. ‘Slim velvet or velour-coated hangers are a simple solution to ugly, jumbled plastic or metal coathangers. For a very modest investment, they transform the appearance of wardrobe rail and save a lot of space too!’

Suzanne is a feng shui consultant, interiors therapist and author of Welcome Home, How Stuff Makes or Breaks your Relationship – available at Amazon. She specializes in understanding the energetic impact of homes and certain possessions may have on all aspects of life, health and relationships, and the ways in which ‘stuff’ can actively prevent people and families from thriving and enjoying the lifestyle they deserve.

The stylish glass storage in the closet is another selling point for Suzanne. She states that Mary’s glass-fronted hanging spaces are ‘ideal to keep her many spectacular outfits fresh and dust-free without wrapping them permanently in polluting plastic sleeves.

She adds: ‘This is a concept well worth considering in homes where unworn formal wear and expensive clothes can become limp and in need of dry-cleaning when hung on an open rack.’ She further admires the boutique-style glass case in the center of the room, which allows Mary to display her collection of sunglasses and jewelry.

Finally, Suzanne enjoys Mary's closet lighting. She says ‘the closet is well-lit thanks to concealed blue spectrum lighting which mimics daylight to allow maximum color definition. This space has no risk of color-clashing wardrobe disasters or make-up glitches. With plenty of open shelving for bags and purses, along with drawer space for underwear, makeup, and accessories, it’s a compact space that packs a lot of punch.’ She finishes: ‘Mary is known for her unique style and her closet ensures she’s always perfectly turned out for day or night.’
