The Dressing Room

Here's a peek at a dressing room recently completed for a client. The space was formerly a small nursery, with dark blue walls that made the space feel crowded and the light stark. We designed a simple organizing system that allowed them to retain space for ironing and dressing.

The walls were lightened to a pale grey, gauzy drapes and a glamorous light fixture were added, and it was ready to go - but yes there is a cellular shade as well for privacy!

Using the corner is always an issue in a closet, as clothes closest to the wall often end up half hidden behind a cupboard wall. Keeping the walls of the unit shallow and allowing a bit of separating between the two hanging spaces means the clothes in the corner are still easily accessible.

The beautiful, extra large mirror with gorgeous bevelled edges serves two functions: its obvious reflective function for dressing and maximizing light in the small space.

While we don't all have the space to create a luxe dressing room with centre cabinets and walls of shoe racks, it is possible to take a small space like this and make it very functional. Who needs another guest room when you can have a spot that you will use daily and makes your life a bit easier?
