Sydney Sweeney's closet embodies stylish but functional clothing storage. A mirror selfie shared on Instagram gives insight into the space's visual and pragmatic design. Interior design experts say it's a 'masterclass' in modern dressing room design.

Sweeney's closet storage is comprised of a wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling mirrored wardrobe and a white and wood dresser for storing accessories. The primary material is natural wood: it appears on the floors, walls, and ceiling. A black and white boucle ottoman adds a touch of texture to the room. In addition to the window in the closet, the entire space is lit by warm, recessed, LED lights for a modern warmth.

'Sydney Sweeney's modern dressing room is a masterclass in clothing storage,' says Jennifer Ebert, digital editor at Homes & Gardens.

'The diversity of spaces for storing clothes from the wardrobe to the dresser to the ottoman, which likely has storage space inside, guarantees that all of Sweeney's clothes will have a home in this space. Having a place for everything makes it easy to stay organized and know where items are.'

The aesthetics of this space are just as strong as its functional benefits, largely due to the use of natural wood. Ebert says: 'It's no surprise that natural wood has been an increasingly trendy material over the past few years. It's innately grounding, and the naturally occurring grains add warmth and texture in a neutral way that goes with everything. It's especially effective in a closet space, where the outfits, and not the wall color, should be the focus.'

The lighting design of Sweeney's dressing room further sets it apart. First, she followed the designer's advice and included a window in her dressing room (you can tell from the light shadow on the left-hand side of the room). This fills the room with natural light, making it the perfect setting for applying makeup, checking how outfits will appear outside, and taking photographs. The rest of the lights are recessed, bringing a modern museum energy into her space. This lighting option provides the warmth of lamps without taking up the surface area.

Our editors tracked down lookalike furniture to help you easily recreate Sydney Sweeney's dressing room look.

This boucle ottoman from Wayfair looks so similar to Sweeney's but at a much more accessible price point. It perfectly complements this gorgeous white and wood dresser from West Elm. The ridges on the front differentiate it from the one in Sweeney's home but add character that will allow it to better fit into a variety of design styles. If you have a small closet that can't fit furniture, this recessed lighting from Amazon can help to add modern appeal without taking up floor space.


Though we can only see the exterior of Sweeney's aesthetic closet organization, what's inside is just as important. We recommend using closet organizers like in-drawer bins and hanging organizers to keep the inside of your wardrobe just as tidy as the outside. This will make your space more aesthetically pleasing and make it easier to get dressed. It's a win-win.

The perfect dressing room is not only a place to store clothes but a sanctuary separate from the rest of the world. By focusing on design and utility in tandem, building your private oasis can be (almost) as easy as snapping a mirror selfie.
