There is something so intriguing to me about a woman's dressing table....it's distinctive and so very personal for every woman. Perhaps it's the hand-selected mementos, photographs, the trinkets, the jewels that intrigue-each with a history. Maybe it's her makeup~the eyeshadows, the lipsticks and perfumes that speak to personal style. As I well know, the table can also get to be a tangle pretty quickly. In looking to do some rearranging of my own dressing table today, I took a peek at Pinterest for some style inspirations. I found plenty of eye candy and ended up designing several dressing table styles to suit my moods.
I love the opulence of the gold and jewels combined with the pop of pink from the bloom. Vintage perfume bottles are always chic.
In this Anders Gramer photograph I love sheen in the wall covering and the sexy lines of the dressing table.
The turquoise blue behind this dressing table makes it a french standout.
Love the bold mix of color and the whimsy of this inspiration.
This vintage inspired version feels ultra feminine with the pale pinks and blues.
This fresh design by Massucco Warner Miller shines with the gorgeous Venetian mirror
This is my first version of 'my dressing table today' inspired by my love of mixed metals. I can't get enough of the interplay between silver, graphite and gold these days whether it be in decor or fashion. A few of my favorite things help create this mood. My vintage dressing table, purchased here in Chico from our favorite Eighth and Main Antiques (we had a boutique "Belle Vie Chic" here several years back). The vintage embellished vase is a gift from my mother, Jeri, from her collection. My Steve Madden iPad case (gold and graphite-couldn't resist!). The chevron clutch was a gift from my husband-love it. The bowl, a gift from Lily, has an ikat feel (she always finds the perfect gifts!). The jewelry~ gifts from my husband (the sparkling bracelet from J. Crew and the gold hoops from my sista, Dorie-love! The gold beads are vintage and were Margies, my mother-in-law). I rounded it out with Kenneth Cole and D.G. Perfume and my Dior makeup palette purchased in Paris-Oh la la. Finally, my favorite photo of us, on our 10th Anniversary, in San Francisco (He's actually my favorite thing!).
Today's 'dressing table' is mixed metals but I also had fun playing today with different moods which I will share soon.
Stylish reader, It makes me wonder-what's on your dressing table today?
