Last year, journalist, author and "Real Housewives of New York" star, Carole Radziwill, gave her two-bedroom SoHo home a polished pick-me-up.
If you watch the show, it was clear to see that her downtown duplex needed a little TLC. However, what wasn't shown much was Radziwill's smaller, second bedroom. A bedroom that would later be converted into a walk-in closet/dressing room designed, manufactured and installed by transFORM, headquartered in New Rochelle, New York.
The process started back in February of 2017 when Radziwill contacted the company for "something different, something girlie."
"Like every girl in New York I dream of a walk-in closet where you can see all your clothes and the hangers don't touch," Radziwill says.
The final design was made with high-gloss silver, high-gloss graphite panels and a combination of custom, textured finishes. These artistically inspired elements work together to create a beautiful appearance with a stunning depth of look, and a smooth, touchable feel.
Drawer dividers and hidden channels provide an easy way to open drawers without placing hardware on the faces of the selected finishes.
The unit features two sections of floor-to-ceiling shoe shelves with matte nickel shoe fences, which were purposely installed on a slant to provide easy access. Clean lines, both elegant and refined, allow Carole to locate her beloved pair of Jimmy Choos while emerging from an early morning haze.
High and low hanging sections afford Radziwill enough room to organize her items based on size. This type of mechanism offers more depth than a standard hanging system. Open, adjustable shelving also adds substantial space to display bulky sweaters, smaller collectables and exclusive handbags.
transFORM integrated a lovely combination of energy-efficient lighting options throughout the unit. The recessed LED strip lights pulse through the metal, Swarovski crystal hardware and create an even higher level of awareness and perception. This effect makes the space look more unique and accommodating.
Behind closed doors, we have an elite scarf rack and sliding pants rack, both in a matte nickel finish. Also, an elegant full-length mirror that pivots and slides was added in matte nickel.
