Dressing Room Makeover - Plans & Mood Board
I am happy to report that I am writing this post today from a place of tranquility and contentedness. If you've been following my latest posts, then you know I've been in the throes of grief and loss after my brother died. While I am by no means "over it", I have been taking steps to take care of and be gentle with myself through this experience and (today, at least) I am starting to come back to myself. I find myself visualizing, imagining and designing again, not to try to divert negative emotions, but for the joy of it! And that feels really good.
So, after finishing up the powder room makeover, I spent a few weeks staring at this extra room we have off of our primary bathroom. Today, it's basically an overflow room. We keep our extra clothes and shoes in there (since our master bedroom closet is so small), some extra bedding, and a slew of instruments that don't fit in my fiancé's music studio. It's become rather unruly and disorganized, and it's just been begging me for an update. So an update I will give it!
Let's take a look at the current situation and then we'll chat design plans...
I am ready to give this dressing room the glow up she deserves. My goals for the room are to:
Build a closet system into the wall to neatly store all of the clothes and take those garment racks out of the room
Add extra dresser storage for costumes, summer clothes, etc.
Display shoes, hats, purses and others items in a beautiful and functional way
Give it a bold personality
As with all the rooms in my home, I want this room to feel cohesive and flow with the rest of the house. And because it's an "extra" room, I'm going to go more bold with the color and have some fun playing with depth and texture. I am sure some adjustments will be made along the way, but here is the design plan I am starting with:
By the way, as I'm writing this the first coat of paint is drying. The plan is already underway! I am excited to share more about this project as we go, but for now, it's time to finish painting. Then it's on to closet system installation. Stay tuned...
P.S. Here's a sneak peak of the color...
