We all know that Filipino boxing champ Manny Pacquiao and his wife Jinkee’s home in Forbes Park, Makati is a sprawling, tropical-modern dream. The three-storey house has its own pool, water features, and home theater, and cost the senator P388 million to acquire.

And we couldn’t help but take note of Jinkee’s immense walk-in-closet, which is an entire room unto itself. The couple has his-and-hers walk-in-closets located on opposite sides of their master bedroom, but it is Jinkee’s that resembles a luxurious hotel suite filled with designer clothes and accessories.

While we may only dream of having a closet of that size, we can get some great organizing ideas from this boudoir:

If your space can allow it, create a lounging area

In the middle of the walk-in-closet is a seating area complete with sofa with Hermes pillows, a coffee table, an Egg Chair, and a bar cart that’s well-stocked with snacks. It faces a TV, where we could usually spot (on Instagram, at least) Jinkee watching her husband’s senatorial speeches.

Even if you don’t have enough space for a sofa, try to add an upholstered bed bench, or a small slipper chair to sit on while putting on your shoes, or a spot to relax for a bit before heading out.

Divide your clothes into daytime, workout, evening, etc.

As seen from this shot, Jinkee hangs some of her cocktail dresses out on racks for easy access. Separating your everyday clothes from your more formal dresses and storing them in different cabinets can help you get dressed faster in the morning.

A dresser table is a must

What use is a walk-in-closet if you don’t have your own dresser table? This one has built-in drawers for Jinkee’s makeup and accessories. Don’t forget to add proper lighting for your beauty routines! You can get a Ghost chair like this from Kartell. 

Create a special area for your jewelry

A central island behind one of the cabinets holds Jinkee’s jewelry, and also acts as a charging station for gadgets. You can have accessory islands like these customized at SB Furniture.

And have a separate area for your eyewear


Do you have a huge collection of sunglasses and eyeglasses? Then perhaps you should allot a special shelf for those, too. Jinkee stores her eyewear on these open shelves—with the sunglasses positioned conveniently at face level—above those ubiquitous orange Hermes boxes.
