Dressing Rooms

One of the things I'm going to miss when we move is the open closet area/sitting room off our master bedroom and bathroom. The only thing I never got to add was a little chandelier, but since my husband had to use the space too, well - you can imagine how that went over. So, I added my own special lamp to my vanity ~ a girly girl affair {with a feather trim around the lamp shade pictured above on my vanity table}.

Organization is key in a dressing room or large closet area. The bench in this purple one {above} looks like a necessity with all those shoes to try on! Sometimes I wish I had a bench it takes me so long to decide on what I'm in the mood to wear I get tired of standing.

Miley Cyrus' dressing room is absolutely what I would expect to see {as far as decoration} in a teen's room. I love the big mirror and chair. Fun for trying on different outfits with your girlfriends!

In contrast, Kelly Ripa's dressing room is more subdued and serene looking. It also looks very well organized with the cabinets, drawers and containers.

Marcia Cross' dressing room has just enough Hollywood glam without going over the top. I love her color scheme and the mix of light and dark with the mirrored surfaces. I don't know that I would come out of the trailer if it was me!

Here is another shot of Marcia's dressing trailer.

Do you have a dressing room? If you do, what did you put in that you couldn't live without now?

Wow, those are some amazing dressing rooms! I'm lucky that I don't have to share mine with my husband, I have a pretty antique dresser in mine that belonged to my Great grandmother.
I love your charming lamp with the feathered shade!

Gorgeous images! Happy Saturday to you! I am slowly making my way around to all the blogs that visited me when I was featured on SITS to say "Thank you". It is indeed a fabulous SITStahood.
Be blessed!

I would LOVE a bigger dressing room...I have a huge walk-in closet...but I would like to have mirrored furniture, crystal accessories and a chaise too!

I have to say, a dressing room would be a welcome space! Those were great examples! In a recent project, I worked with a client to create a relaxing dressing area, in a his and hers closet. There is a window with a seat and across from that, there's a coffee bar, with a built-in coffee maker and a mini-fridge and sink. The area is right off the master bathroom so she has a nice place to curl up, in her robe, to plan her day.

I love these dressing rooms... I WANT one! Maybe the little bedroom next to mine will have to be converted!! I don't like house guests anyway! (:

Nancy said...

Absolutely to die for! My Fla house has a gorgeous dressing room, I added everything to make it mine. Off limits to hubby! Thanks for sharing Kathy!!
Huggs, Nancy

Thanks Karen! It will be hard to downsize after having my own large area to dress and prepare in every morning.

Heaven, Jen!

Thanks, Maria! They are pretty.

Thanks for popping over, Laura!

I'm with you, Jacqueline!

A coffee bar must be great, Wanda. It would get me going a bit faster in the morning!

Yes, Leona - house guests be darned!

Lucky you, Nancy!

No dressing room here, but I love the feel of Kelly Ripa's. I bet her remodeled apartment is extremely well organized.

Hi Carma ~ Kelly Ripa's is so uncluttered and organized. I've come to appreciate a more streamlined look over time.
