As you guys know we've recently pur-chased a house in Spain, which is a complete blank canvas, with neutral walls and floor tiles throughout. We've had our stuff shipped over from the UK that's been in storage for the last 4 and a half years and now it's time for a major sort out! Tricky when we're only there a week at a time, but nevertheless it's all good fun!
I've mentioned before that I've got the 4th bedroom as my dressing room. My dream has always been to have a walk in wardrobe and when hubby suggested, that I have one of the bedrooms as a dressing room, well, you can imagine my delight and huge smile across my face!
I did try to negotiate having the 3rd bedroom instead, but hubs was having none of it, lol. So, that one is staying as the spare room. On further thinking though, I am kinda pleased, as even though the spare room is slightly bigger, the view from my dressing room is a lot better! I over look the side part of the garden, whereas the spare room, will look out to the house next door (when it's built anyway!).
So, I have the most gorgeous rug in my dressing room, which we got in Spain (from Leroy Merlin) and I need to take some pics to show you guys! I've bought a couple of other bits, a small heart shaped mirror and a bright pink cushion that says 'love is all you need' on it, I got them both from Primark.
The room is soo cluttered at the mo and has zero furniture, but it's not too much of a problem until we're living there permanently. There are fitted wardrobes in every room, so I have got some storage space. Eventually, I will get some sort of chest of drawers in there and some shelving and of course a huge full length mirror. I'm thinking of having all white furniture, I really like the Hemnes range in Ikea. I'm going to make sure my accessories do the talking, pops of colour and interesting pieces.
I'd love to have a bright patchwork chair for the corner, but I think it may 'over power' the room and might look like there's too much going on. At the end of the day it is a dressing room, so I need space to twist and twirl and play dress up! Saying that though, I do want some sort of seating in there and I've been looking at various styles of ottomans online.
With all that in mind, I wanted to share with you some fabulous things I've seen on the internet and I'm itching to get going with my dressing room! I feel a shopping spree coming on!!!
