Project Reveal: Girly Glam Dressing Room

Holler. 

It is with great pride and excitement that I share this project with you today!  Several months ago my father and I were hired by this lovely young family to design and remodel their son and daughter’s respective bathrooms.  Those renovations were such delight that we decided to tackle more projects.  I was tasked with pulling together the son’s bedroom and bringing new life to the daughter’s dressing room.  

Dressing room is such a fancy word (I love it!) In actuality its a small room between the daughter’s bedroom and bathroom.  It had become a bit of a passageway and we decided to give it a new purpose.  We designated a homework / vanity / desk zone by the window.  We brought in comfy seating for friend hangouts.  And we added some old world glamour with shoes on display on a vintage gold etagere.  Every dressing room needs shoes on display, right?

I have to tell you, this job was a blast!  Both mom and daughter were so great to work with.  Girly Glam, as I’ve dubbed her, was an ideal client- opinionated, open minded and excellent taste.  She asked for her space to be elegant and glamorous, but still fun and spunky.  (I may have added that spunky part on my own.)  Tiffany blue was a fave, dogs were a love, and wallpaper was willing to be considered.  I went to town, and this is what we’ve ended up with…

We chose the most lovely wallpaper on this planet (Nina Campbell’s Swan Lake) and paired it will the prettiest pale pink diamond rug.  I love how the Tiffany blue tufted settee pops against the paper.  The sofa is Ballard Designs and we used our own fabric, as I needed to find the perfect shade of blue.

The coffee table is vintage.  I found it on Ebay and had it shipped across the country.  Totally worth it- it is AHMAZING and the marble top ties into her bathroom.  The lotus flower candle holders are vintage finds I scooped up from Minty.


The spotted fabric is from Furbish.  Jamie sells these pillows ready made, but I just needed to have pink piping, so I bought the fabric and did a custom set.  I love the unexpected colors in the middle pillow.  Oh, and the dog portrait hanging above the sofa?  We had a photo shoot with the family labridoodle, Billy, on the front yard.  I blew up the photo and stuck it in a vintage frame I found.  See, there is always room in the budget for art!


Hot Dawg, I love the desk area.  Guys, this used to be the most random space.  There was an exposed radiator with an oversized purple chair in the corner.  We built in a desk with a coordinating radiator cover that has a nice counter now.  I designed the cabinetry to be like campaign furniture.  I love those inset brass pulls so much.  The modern ghost chair is a nice contrast to the vintage mirror and lamp.



I heart the roman shade we had made with blue greek key detailing.  That simple moment is one of my favorite touches for the room.  For accessories I picked up a set of Staffordshire dogs from Furbish, an owl mug/orchid holder from West Elm and a pink tray from Design Darling.



The big score for this project was the vintage bamboo étagère.  How darling is it as a shoe shelf?  I imagine one day she will fill it with stilettos and platforms, but lets not rush things, ok?



Oh and I found this little vintage beaded gem to illuminate her ceiling.  It’s so stinking glamorous and cute at the same time.


You remember her coordinating bathroom, right?  I reviewed the whole construction progress HERE.  I’m still proud how we packed so much storage in a small space without sacrificing style. 
 

Here is a shot (finally!) of her gorgeous shower curtain done up in Caitlin Wilson Textiles.  I just adore the curved valance at the top.  PS- two curtains are cooler than one.


This beaded sconces were totes-magotes worth the few hours it spent to put them together!  (Just don’t ask our carpenter Angelo about it.)



Venetian mirror plus framed mirror cabinetry doors.  No such thing as too much mirror in my book.  As long as it’s done tastefully, that is.

And that, my friends, brings us to the end of project Girly Glam.  Our goal was to design a traditional, vibrant, timeless space that could grow with our young client as she leaves childhood behind and moves into her teens and young adulthood.  At 31 years old, I’d like to move in, so I’m hoping that means I was successful and this design appeals to all ages.  I sure hope you liked it too.  My father and I are available for hire if you have a renovation you’d like to tackle!  Contact ME for more details.

    Was it difficult to install the campaign hardware? I want to do something similar on my bathroom vanity, but I’m worried my carpenter won’t do it correctly.

  3. I seriously just died over this- I want it to be my bedroom SO BADLY!!!!! I have been in love with that wallpaper forever and to see how you used it…it’s like you pulled my dreams right out of my head. You’ve totally inspired me to take the plunge with that paper- thank you, thank you! You are BEYOND talented my friend- this room and bathroom are just too pretty to even really put into words- just love, love….mentioned you and it on the old blogski today:) xoxo
