I never thought I’d be the type of girl to crave a ‘dressing table’ or somewhere to lay all my makeup out but after not having one forever I’m definitely wanting one at the moment! I think once we’re finally settled in a ‘proper house’ it’ll be high up on my list of priorities for our bedroom.
At the moment I have one drawer and a couple of Muji acrylic boxes but it doesn’t look nice and it gets messy so easily because I just chuck everything into IKEA drawer dividers and it’s chaos. I’ve been Pinteresting and dreamin’ about a few beauty set ups recently so thought I’d share my inspo!
One thing I’ve spied on my Pinterest search is the IKEA ALEX drawers. These seem to be everywhere! If it’s not these bad boys then it’s the MALM drawers but we’ve already got those and I think they’re ugly af. The ALEX drawers just look like they have so much room and I’d love to have a fancier dressing table and then some plain and simple drawers like these.
The main event
Mirrored furniture makes everything seem super luxe, all posh London hotel feels and I am all over that look for our next bedroom. The gold/copper front desk in my moodboard is just gorgeous and at the mo, the dream. I can’t imagine my full room just yet but I’m hoping for wooden floors and copper accents everywhere.
Storage = accessories and organisation which are two of my favourite things so I’d probably start with some Osco Acrylic 3 Drawer Storage Units or Muji drawers on top of the desk with a couple of books (you know the classic blogger style!) and then some pretty accessories like candles. I’m loving this CALM candle from H&M and the monochrome candle too because they’re great to use after they’ve all burnt out as makeup brush holders. Pretty perfumes always look gorgeous on a nice dressing table too. Currently craving Givenchy Dahlia Divin and Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb FYI gift fairies.
