Corners of My Home ~ Dressing Table

Photobucket
A lady's dressing table is a very important feature of any boudoir I believe. This is the place where I start my morning, painting my face with the comfort of my favourite beauty products surrounding me. Strictly speaking, my dressing table is actually a desk. I hunted high and low for a dressing table around ten years ago, when I first moved into my flat and this dark mahogany desk and matching chair are what caught my eye. The kind of classic pieces I know I will have forever. I'm constantly changing the items that sit atop the table but the lamp, tall and vase and mini mannequin remain constant. I sometimes sit here with my laptop, so quite handy that my dressing table doubles up as a desk too.

  10. What a gorgeous table with so many beautiful details! I would love a boudoir with natural light for applying makeup. You've chosen all of the accessories so well (the mirror!!) For now I stick to using my bathroom :)

  13. This is almost mouth watering, I mus admit. I love classic furniture but using an actual desk as a dressing table and decorating it so simply yet elegantly is so charming! I loved your lamp and the vase you put your brushes in. I need to rearrange my dressing table as well, it's a mess and it looks simply ugly even though I love my furniture.

    Beautifully captured as always! Your house is my promised land Paula, lol. xx
