Recently, lifestyle expert Jessica Chinyelu was thrilled to unveil a brand-new addition to her beautiful home--a beautiful custom closet! She partnered with one of our Virtual In-Home Closet Designers to create a white Elfa Décor solution that provides plenty of space for her and her husband's clothes (including his 100+ pairs of shoes!). Check out the video below for a tour!

One of the completion products she highlights is our Black Non-Slip Rubberized Suit Hanger, which acts as a valuable space-saver in her new closet. "We also got these amazing storage boxes," she says, referring to our Black Cambridge Storage Boxes. "I have a lot of clothes that I would hang before, like my African attire or things you don't wear just all the time. I love that now I can just put them in a box and label them."

Jessica was so excited that she also shared the results on Instagram! Click through to see the before-and-after:

¿C L O S E T R E V E A L¿ Yup! My husband took up the majority of the space, but I found a way to manage with my 25% percent closet space ¿¿ (I ¿ think) with the help of our In-Home Virtual Design expert at The Container Store. The feeling of being organized feels SO good! We worked with the BEST to create a closet custom for our needs with @containerstorecustomclosets . Hubby and I are in love with our Elfa Décor solution. I'm happy because I got my mirror and storage for all my wigs and hubby's happy because he can now see all of his shoes ¿. Can you believe all of this was designed virtually? ¿ Click the link in my bio to watch the full closet tour and see before and afters! ¿ Oh and @thecontainerstore has a sale running until October 11 on their closets. I highly recommend you get in on this. ¿ How do you like our closet and do you think the hubs took up all the space? ¿ P.S. - The song playing is by one of my favorite artists and great friend @dr_azuike_ #containerstore #OrganizedLife #closetmakeover ¿
