Corners of My Home ~ Dressing Room

The most important room in my home, when I finally got to buy my own property, was to have a dressing room. As a clothes addict, I had always wanted a specific area where all of my clothes, shoes and accessories could be organised. Granted, it is not a huge space and I must admit it is now bursting to the seems with my possessions, but still it is my own little area where I can go each morning to choose what to wear for the day ahead.

I can never have too many coat-hangers and seem constantly to run out, so I buy these white wire hangers in packs of 20 from Ebay

  6. This was fascinating. A dressing room is my number 1 priority when looking for houses too - the boyfriend wants a drum room in the basement, me a room for my clothes! :)

  7. WOW, so gorgeous! I definitely want a dressing room when I have my own place. Right now I have everything crammed into a dresser and fairly small closet, and it's so hard on my clothing );

  12. Paula!! How beautiful everything is in your dressing room. :) I too have a "dressing room" in our little place, but it also consists of a little office nook and my sewing machine / supplies.. and it's not where near as pretty and organized as your space!! I love the little minature chair and vanity.. so sweet.

    Hope you're having a sunshiney day.

    xx Love & Aloha
