With the right lighting and decoration, a closet can be more than a storage space. In fact, a perfectly designed walk-in closet can be a stylish extension of your bedroom to be used as a dressing room or miniature museum for your clothing. Based on images of her closet, fashion designer Victoria Beckham is well aware of the positive effects of closet design.

With a few stylish and carefully placed touches, the former Spice Girl turns her walk-in closet into a warm, luxurious, and inviting space.

Interior design experts say the chic appearance of Victoria Beckham's closet comes down to three elements: the gray carpet, the statement lighting, and the velvet furniture. These aspects of the space work together to add warmth and comfort to the Beckhams' dressing room.

First, experts say, the carpet makes the space feel inviting. Artem Kropovinsky, founder and principal designer at the NYC-based firm Arsight, states: 'Introducing a carpet into a closet doesn't just add warmth, it crafts an intimate, tactile ambiance contrasting the cold functionality of storage.'  Andra DelMonico, the lead interior designer at Trendey, adds that not only does a carpet make closet design look more cohesive, but it also absorbs sound thereby minimizing noise levels.

Interior designers say that Victoria Beckham's statement closet lighting also greatly benefits the space. Andra states: 'Besides adding a focal point the statement lighting enhances the aesthetic of a closet. Also, it offers proper illumination, ensuring visibility and making Victoria's closet a functional area.' Artem continues, 'The right statement lighting turns Victoria's closet into an experience. It becomes an intimate showroom highlighting every item like an art piece.'

Finally, interior designers say that the velvet decor puts the cherry on top of the luxurious feel of Victoria Beckham's closet. Light gray velvet armchairs in the center of the room and at the vanity create just the right amount of textural intrigue. Artem told H&G: 'Velvet in a walk-in closet isn't a mere choice; it's a statement of luxury. With its shimmer and plush texture, every dress, shoe, or accessory is enveloped in opulence.'

The best part of Victoria's closet design is that these three easy steps are easy to recreate in any dressing room. Armed with statement lighting, velvet, and carpeting, you're on your way to a luxurious closet in no time.
