Mark Eden Schooley / LonnyWhen flipping through Lonny's July/August issue, it's hard not to get stuck on the images of Chance founder Julia Leach's dreamy French vacation home. An ivy-covered château, a glittering aquamarine pool, a dream-life farmer's market—what's not to like? But the home's bedroom, with its casual casegoods and chicly laissez faire furniture placement, is lacking one notable element: a closet. In place of a closed door behind which shoes are piled and hangers are crammed, Leach's vacation wardrobe is hung on a whitewashed clothing rack against a wall. In an otherwise simple space, the curated assemblage of pieces (striped shirts and straw hats, naturally) become a graphic focal point as well as an easy-access dressing area.
In other bedrooms, vibrantly printed garments provide decorative contrast to intricate wall treatments. By choosing a rack that's streamlined and polished and keeping the hangers pared-down and cohesive, displaying your favorite clothes in your bedroom can be a dynamic—and functional—way to meld your fashion and interior design style.
