Dressing Room Tour

Hi Everyone, welcome back to my blog. Today I have a short but sweet post for you. Craig and I have just finished decorating our dressing room and today I wanted you show you the finished result. 
It has always been my dream as a little girl to have my own walk-in-wardrobe/ dressing room and buying this house has allowed for that dream to come true. I knew that I wanted open plan wardrobes so you could see all of our clothes, which gives the room a boutique feel. So, we opted for the Ikea pax wardrobes as you can customise the compartments and size of the wardrobes. Naturally I gave myself more space over craig but I am so pleased with how it turned out. 
We were lucky that the wardrobes we're delivered a few days after we completed, back in December and Craig and his dad worked extremely hard building these. I am proud to say that I did assist and was able to build one drawer by myself in the end.  
Having the clothes all on show means that I have to keep my wardrobe organised at all times which is easy for me but not so much for Craig, however I am happy to take control of the dressing room and keep everything in it's place. The first time I unpacked our clothes and put everything away was so therapeutic and I am quite particular where everything goes once we hang the clothes back up afte a wash load. It’s the little things in the life that make me happy...
Once again, as the wardrobe is an open plan I knew I wanted to purchase some athletically pleasing hangers so I chose a nude and gold colour for myself and black for Craig. Overall I am thrilled with the finished result of the wardrobes and I’m overjoyed that we decided on the pax system. 

I knew that since the wardrobes were white I wanted to have a matching dressing table area at the other side of the room therefore I chose to stick with products from Ikea. Being a lover of beauty products it was important to me that I had plenty of drawer and table top space for my makeup. Along with having the open plan wardrobe I knew that I would have loved to get a Hollywood mirror, although when looking
online we saw that they were extortionately priced. Whilst shopping in Ikea we sawa show room with a DIY Hollywood mirror and it looked absolutely perfect, and at a fraction of the price.ALong with my makeup mirror I chose to have a full length mirror to use when picking an outfit, which we have placed next to the dressing table. This huge mirror was from Ikea and is the perfect finishing touch to the room.The next step was styling the dressing table. I wanted to tie in colours such as gold, nude and black and keep the desk looking clear and simple. I chose to display a few items of makeup on top along with a bit of greenery to brighten things up a little. Finally, I purchased a couple prints from desenio and then the room was complete. I cannot express how happy I am to have my dream dressing room. It's the perfect space to get ready in and I'm so grateful that we were able to create the room I have always wanted.

With love,
