A stylish and well-organized dressing room can set the entire tone for your day. No one knows this better than Victoria Beckham. The fashion designer took to Instagram to share her style of tights, but fans couldn't help but notice the sheer size and style of her dressing room. Rather than the traditional sparse furnishing we'd expect in a closet, Victoria Beckham's space has all of the decor of a traditional living room.

The space includes a dark faux fur rug, a lime green velvet sofa, two purple armchairs, a coffee table with fresh flowers, and a beautiful crystal chandelier on the ceiling. A wall of cabinets that shows rows of shoes and clothes behind is the only tip-off that this room is just a closet. Experts say this is a good thing.

According to experts, Victoria's walk-in closet has the perfect balance between style and function. 'This is a beautifully elegant space,' says H&G’s interiors therapy and Feng Shui expert, Suzanne Roynon of Interiors Therapy. 'It’s tailored for the couple’s unique personal requirements.'

Suzanne is a feng shui consultant, interiors therapist and author of Welcome Home, How Stuff Makes or Breaks your Relationshipavailable at Amazon. 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.

She continues, 'The dressing room has oodles of natural light which is incredibly valuable for both dressing and wellbeing.  Victoria will be aware that artificial light can distort colors and skin tone, so on the rare occasions when she ditches her signature black outfits and slips into something brighter, she will be confident in looking great.' 

She adds:  'Both Beckhams are mindful of the importance of good self-care which includes essential support for mental and emotional health, so during the winter months having the luxury of a dressing room with exceptionally good daylight levels is a wise decision. For the summer they have lightweight blinds to diffuse the brightest light and prevent fading.'

Furthermore, Suzanne loves the practicality of the built-in closets which runs the length of the wall, eliminating the need for closet organizers. She especially appreciates how they make maximum use of the high ceilings to provide generous concealed storage in Victoria's dressing room. 'This means the room has everything Victoria and David desire exactly where they need it, without an excess of visual clutter,' says Suzanne.

Suzanne states: 'This is more than a dressing room, it’s also a space where the power couple can spend quality time together whilst preparing for their day or an evening out. The glamorous seating area has ample chairs, and a sofa should a styling pow-wow be required. Perhaps it’s also a welcome spot for the junior Beckhams to absorb the fashion prowess already in their DNA.'

'Never underestimate the clarity of thought a well-designed and impeccably organized wardrobe will give,' says Suzanne. 'Clutter in any part of the home messes with your mind. Fortunately for Victoria and David Beckham, their elegant dressing room ensures they have a laser focus on making their dreams come true.'

We can't promise that Victoria's closet organization ideas will turn you into a world-famous model, fashion designer, or former Spice Girl, but prioritizing natural light and visually pleasing storage will make your morning dressing routine a little bit brighter.
