If the clothes make the man, then the space where you get dressed is the most important room in the home. Whether it's a walk-in closet or a dressing room, a dressing space that prepares you for the day is essential.

Jennifer Aniston's stylish closet is a masterclass in this kind of psychology-led design we all aspire to. Its visual impact is immediately apparent. The actress's dressing room includes dark hardwood floors, cozy, light gray shag carpets, long, carefully organized cabinets, and a vanity with an ultra-soft armchair.

However, the benefits of the actress's walk-in closet are more than just skin-deep. 'Jennifer Aniston's elegant dressing room has all the hallmarks of a beautiful, practical space that has been created for the movie star's specific requirements, and there is more than a nod to Feng Shui in its construction,' says organizing and Feng Shui expert at Interiors Therapy, Suzanne Roynon.

Suzanne continues, 'The room amplifies ‘feel good’ energy and is completely supportive of her personal needs and those of the professional make-up artists, stylists, and dressers who support her for the red-carpet events which are a regular part of the movie star lifestyle. ' This way of thinking can teach us how to be happier at home.

She specializes in understanding the energetic impact of homes and certain possessions may have on all aspects of life, health and relationships, and the ways in which ‘stuff’ can actively prevent people and families from thriving and enjoying the lifestyle they deserve.

According to Suzanne, every element of Jennifer's closet is carefully chosen to enhance her lifestyle. For one, the flooring idea. 'Take a closer look at the room, and you’ll find practical hardwood flooring that is easy to keep clean and dust-free – a must for the open-fronted closet space and her many beautiful outfits, ' says Suzanne. She continues, 'It will also provide a stage for experimenting with new designs and fittings and gives plenty of "strutting" capacity to check for wardrobe malfunctions in the privacy of her own home.'

The closet makeup vanity follows the same practical pattern. 'Jen has chosen a low-backed chair for her dressing table so she can sit comfortably for hair and makeup, whether she’s doing it herself or has her event team on hand.  The stage-lit mirror is a prerequisite for someone who has spent most of her career in the public eye, and the huge bays enclosing hanging rails ensure that whether she’s working out at home, attending business meetings for her haircare range, or gracing the Golden Globes, her stylish persona always shines through.'

Even the closet storage in Jennifer Aniston's space is designed for ideal functionality and mood-boosting properties. Suzanne states: 'The glass-fronted, and possibly temperature-controlled, cabinets housing shoes and many purses will keep them at their best.  Dust, strong light, and moisture are all detrimental to leather, and it makes sense to protect Jen’s beloved collection in tiptop condition.'
