UPGRADE YOUR WARDROBE BY DESIGNING A BEAUTIFUL DRESSING ROOM – THE PERFECT PLACE TO ORGANISE, SORT AND PLAY DRESS UP
THEA BABINGTON-STITT

SERENE SPACE

Creating a chic and relaxing area is often top of the list when designing a dressing room. If your space doesn’t have a door, then ensure it acts as a welcoming retreat. Details like a thoughtfully dressed window, a vase of fresh flowers and a comforting chair can make all the difference in turning it into a calm and pretty room rather than a purely functional area. Having something soft underfoot is key, too, so either continue the carpet from the bedroom or pick up a thick pile rug to finish the space.

STEP TO IT

A library ladder is a beautiful vintage addition. Having steps to hand not only adds a stylish focal point, but maximises storage potential as everything will be easily accessible. For both hardwood and carpeted floors, choose a hooked-over, solid option rather than a traditional rolling library ladder – it will provide the most stability for the former, and rollers struggle to work on thick-pile wool. Consider matching the ladder hardware to the other brassware in the room for a coordinated finish.

BEAUTIFULLY BESPOKE
