Design has been on my mind lately! Last week I had a decorator from Bassett Furniture come in and help me get ideas for our front room that we do everything in. It was so much fun just chatting design with another adult woman, that I started looking around my house at other things I’ve wanted to update, or redesign.
One area has always been my side of our bedroom. Though I love the nightstand look, I’d really love to have a vanity. I hate that word though, makes me feel a little vain…ah who am I kidding. I think everyone needs a nice special place for their things. There I go getting off track again. Anyways, I got to thinking, and then talking to a nice lady over at One Kings Lane, and decided to make a mood board of my dream vanity.
I started by checking out the vanity, or dressing table makeover, I pinned a year ago, that still gets frequent repins. The light from the window gives a nice comforting feel to me. I felt the overall simplicity of this design is what I liked best, but looking at it again now, I feel it’s a bit too cluttered….though I’m not sure cluttered is really the word I’m going for here. What do you think?
There are some key aspects of this vanity however, that I do still really like. They are probably why I pinned it in the first place. I like the white desk, and straight lines. Stool – perfect for not spending too much time being vain, but padded so still comfy. Lamp a must, and the wonderful natural light from the window.
So how am I going to accomplish this in my dream board? I have to take into account where this would actually be able to go in my room. No sense in dreaming something if it can’t actually ever happen. Since I would not be able to put my vanity in front of window, the next best option is a wall mirror.
I absolutely love oval mirrors. They frame your face nicely while eliminating background noise. The gold in this particular mirror spoke to me, and feels like it would just help capture the sunlight from the patio door across the room, giving me the natural light we all love and need.
Now that we’ve got our mirror and focal point for my vanity, it’s time to dream up the rest!
Don’t you just love it?! I could spend all day browsing the sales at One Kings Lane. You can find a match for just about anything there. Here’s what I added to my Vanity Board.
