I work as a professional organizer so thought it was time to design my own dream closet. Love spending time in there!

I need help. I have a hallway basement closet in middle of home. It was a typical closet that one has when basement stair are on other side. I use it as a curio to display trinkets, collectibles. It just needs updating. It is painted white inside and the shelves but can anyone suggest an updated color or look? That's easy to do. Or a different look. I like to display china, but it looks outdated and old fashioned. Help anyone.
You can read about the makeover on my blog here:
We bought a house that was over 30 years old. The MBR closet really did not work. The door going into the closet is behind the door coming into the bedroom so you had to shut the bedroom door to even gain access to the closet. The closet is an 11' x 6' rectangle with the door into the closet on one of the long walls. There were cabinets (similar to kitchen cabinets) mounted on the top half of the closet with a long rod attached on the bottom for you to hang your clothes. We felt that the closet design was really inefficient. We were starting a remodeling project on our master bathroom, so we decided to gut the closet and incorporate a remodel of that as well. We removed two of the walls to the closet and reframed them so that the wall with the closet door is now closed and the new entry for the closet is a pocket door from the bathroom. No more closing the bedroom door to get into the closet! We decided to go with ClosetMaid prefabbed closet pieces to install in the closet to give us the maximum amount of storage for our wardrobe. We bought the closet pieces online and had them delivered to our home. It arrived in 18 boxes which was pretty overwhelming. We started one box at a time putting them together until everything was assembled. Then we brought each section into the closet and began installing them. We did this DIY project totally on our own and I think that it came out great. Look at the pictures and see the transformation from ugly and inefficient to beautiful and functional. I love my new closet.
