The Dressing Room

Wednesday, 31 July 2013

As I was reading through my favourite blogs I came across this exciting competition at Chaise Longue on the lovely blog 'Imitation is the Greatest Form of Flattery'.

This design competition involves creating your dream room and featuring a piece of their furniture in your plan, mood board or list. I thought this may have been tricky but as soon as I saw their french style and with a Louis Ghost Philippe Starck chair already having pride of place in my bathroom I knew this was going to be as easy as eating a box of Ladruee delicacies!

The Dressing Room...

So here is my finished mood board complete with illustrations and inspiration from film to cake. The idea being that as we are moving house and now we have a spare could..perhaps be turned into a dressing room where I could get ready but also relax with friends over tea and cake - such a better option than the spare room being dedicated to the ironing or dare I say - an office!

The items I have picked would work beautifully together,the grey/mink accents could be complemented by a pale grey wall colour. I really like Blackened by Farrow and Ball but it would also look lovely with their Middleton pink which is a subtle blush colour. Accessories for the room could be in pale pastel colours such as mint, lavender and palest pink as to add a splash of colour but not detract from the cool contemporary grey.

I really hope you like my idea and choices, it really was a dream project to put together. If you would like to enter the competition please go to for all terms and conditions.
