Today I spent half the day “designing” the dressing room. I decided to go for the Ikea pax system, only we’ll make a few changes to make it fit the room perfectly :) The drawing above is of all the units more or less how they will be dressed, but they won’t be lined up like in the picture above. I thought I’d include the drawing with a description of what I’m planning on keeping where as I know some of you have been wondering about the process of choosing the amount of shelves and rails according to clothes. We already have a good amount of wardrobe space so this entire thing will be filled with my stuff while James will be using the fitted wardrobes which has great shoe shelves and everything already – win win for both :D
The wardrobe units will be delivered tomorrow, and then James’ guys will come and build it plus another shelf unit on Tuesday. That means I’ll have a full dressing room before I’ve done the first food shop hahaha…
As for the rest of the room I would love to have an antique mirrored chest of drawers for the middle of the room to keep accessories and things in. On top I’ll probable keep my most worn jewellery, coffee books, flowers, candles and such. I also want to squeeze in a plant in one of the corners to get a sense of freshness to the room, but seeing as we’ll be travelling quite a bit it will have to be artificial. A massive artificial orchid is another item on my list which I’m planning on placing on top of a mirrored pedestal against a small wall. I’ve found Sia to have quite good quality artificial plants and flowers, anyone know of other brands that does high quality artificial plants and flowers?
Wednesday the interior designers behind the gorgeous Holland Park house will pay us a visit so I’ll have the opportunity to check out their catalogs and get some ideas for our flat. It’s going to be so incredibly exciting!! :D
I’m terribly sorry I haven’t had the chance to answer the rest of the questions from the question session, Ikea has a knack with stealing more of our time than we plan on, don’t they? I will do my best at having it up tomorrow.
I hope you’re having an amazing Sunday, sweets!! xx
