Arts and Crafts for all ages..

Check out this FABULOUS BAUHAUS-INSPIRED HOME!!!!! 6,000 square feet consisting of two fireplaces, four bedrooms, a three-car garage, gourmet kitchen, work and play areas, and gorgeous indoor/outdoor living – need I say more?!

Clos-ette is all about going green with sustainable materials and we love the bamboo flooring, mahogany paneling, honed limestone, and open spaces allowing for natural light in this home.

Located on a two-acre private lot, this home is a BEAUTIFUL interpretation of arts and crafts.

The kitchen is the heart of the home with natural cherry cabinetry, top-of-the-line appliances, and anchored by a magnificent fieldstone hearth. Even the world’s worst cooks would spend enough time in this gorgeous kitchen to become gourmet chefs!

The living room, family room, sun room, and dining room all reveal elegant wainscoting, beautiful built-ins, custom doors, and lovely window configurations that give a warm, natural glow to each space. The attention to detail continues upstairs with an open gallery, four bedrooms, elegant baths, and a delightful play room on the third floor.

If you're interested in this house, please contact Patti Salem at Barrett and Company

The psychology of storing a fancy heeled shoe...

You have finally found the perfect dress shoe for all your upcoming events. You get home after a long day of shopping, take them out of the box, admire them for a moment – applauding yourself once more for your fabulous taste, and then veryyyy carefully put them back into the box or dustbag that they came in and store them in the bottom of your closet until it’s time to wear them.

Now doesn’t that sound silly?! Consider all the time and money you invested into these shoes!
Not to mention that you’ll only be showing off your spectacular purchase for a few hours each month during your special occasions! No shoe lasts forever - Why not flaunt these shoes all year round? Conserve the floor space for your boots!
There are plenty of ways to display your shoes while making sure they stay looking brand new. Clos-ette can help you showcase your shoes on you and off!
