I've had people raise their eyebrows at putting this level of detail in a small room like this, a closet, or a bathroom. I think this is precisely where these things feel the most luxurious and pampering, though. Have you ever come across vintage clothes with exquisitely sewn linings of beautiful cloth, or opened a book to see gorgeous endpapers, and experienced the pleasure of the unnecessary detail? For me, it's these little details that add layers of perfection to every day living, so I take the time to create them for myself, and I love doing them for clients who delight in the extraordinary, as well. I hope you'll let yourself enjoy such things in your own home. Beauty is not a frivolous extra. Honoring yourself, and the Divinity within you, with beautiful surroundings feeds your soul!
