But with little effort, you can transform this utilitarian space into a pure expression of your own personality. A fresh coat of paint and graphic wallpaper are a start, but here are a few more ways to infuse color into your closet.

If you have a colorful wardrobe, consider glass doors instead of standard wood ones; open shelving lets accessories with a personality steal the show. Similarly, you can hang necklaces and bracelets from visible hooks to catch the light. Of course, you could ditch the doors altogether and opt for racks made of piping.
