DRESSING ROOM RENOVATION
When it comes to deciding what to wear, it helps to be in an environment that stimulates the eye and imagination. For that reason, the dressing room is a part of the house where home owners can give their decorating flair free rein, whether that’s creating a girly grotto in pink and lavender, or a gilded Marie Antoinette boudoir. But whatever the decorative scheme, it’s important to remember that in most cases the primary purpose of a dressing room is to supply storage. Therefore a starting point for the majority of designs will be to work up a plan for a series of fitted cabinets and shelves, all ideally open (i.e., without doors) so as to give an inspiring overview of all the assembled clothes and accessories. With the optimum blend of symmetry and repetition, this structure can help to give the dressing room both a feeling of order and a sense of theatre.
