Dressing Room

The blog post is dedicated to an old friend of mine.

She has recently convinced her husband to allow her to turn the spare bedroom into a dressing room! Every girls dream!

Her brief was something antique, classy with cream and pinks and room for sleeping!

I have gathered a selection of images which I hope will inspire my friend, and also incorporated a beautiful day bed, not only great dressed as a sofa to sit and try outfits but also functional for when friends come to stay for the weekend.

I particularly love all the different ideas for storing all your worldly possessions! The cake stand below is displaying candles but will look equally beautiful with jewellery draped across or with beautiful perfume bottles! I am a sucker for display trays, jars, bowls!.........  you can use anything, the list is endless, cups or the more traditional trinket boxes.....!!


  1. Wow it looks stunning, you have inspired me. I will complete this exciting mission and send you some pictures :-)

    Thank you so much.

  2. I am so glad you like it & it has inspired you :-)

    Yes, when you have finished you must send some pictures! xx

  3. Absolutely love the skirted dressing table. That's part of my fantasy dressing room. Planning to do up my my bedroom closet soon. Thinking about a pale pinkish lilac with touches of black and white.

  4. It is beautiful isn't it, so luxurious, Wow. I always think bold/hot pink with black is really glamourous and light pink/white really feminine & luxurious! x
