Glam It Up!

What's the most "girly" space in a home?
The dressing table, of course.  

Picture yourself, Hollywood style, sitting in your satin dressing gown, silver hairbrush and mirror set before you, combing through your curls before a night on the town with the most handsome and debonair man in town!

EEEK.....reality check!!!

I don't know about you, but the only thing I have in common with the women of Jean Harlow's day is maybe red fingernail polish! 

But I do love the idea of the dressing table.....a completely personal space.....not a sharing space with the rest of the family....a spot where we can direct all our attention on ourselves!  Novel thought!

I don't know about you, but I have a dressing table that I don't use.  I'm a "stand-up-at-the-bathroom-sink"  kind of girl, although, after seeing the pictures for this post, I might just change my mind.  I think I may have to go girly!

So, can you get your "girl" on???


  1. Like the idea and look! It would require sitting down for a few minutes though, standing is much faster!! :) Janell

  2. How I wish I had the space in my bathroom for an area like this. I do have room in our master bedroom but always wonder if it's practical if there isn't water nearby-I constantly have mascara malfunctions that need water!

  3. Love the glamour of the third image...wonderful!!

  4. Oh how I wish I had a little space that was all about glam and all about me. Not only do we not have the space for it but I doubt I keep my daughter away from it!

  5. I have always loved this idea, but never have had the space to have one. Loved the image of the huge round mirror, that is a great idea, Kathysue

  6. I love a glam dressing table. I have an antique kidney shaped desk for my dressing table in front of a huge antique Louis French mirror. It's just so comfortable sitting there that it's often a problem getting out the door on time. Love, love the antique mirror on the table in the image from Architect Design Blog. Great post. Mona

  7. I saw your blog and wanted to let you know I have forwarded it to my wife. She is an accountant and has a client her who is an older, struggling interior designer who has not yet embraced on line marketing. I have given her your blog address and FB site to look at for inspiration.

  8. I love the idea
    in theory, but I'm
    afraid that I'd make
    too big a mess!! You
    know, powder all over
    the place. But these
    pics are very, very
