Nudes and Dressing Rooms


I find something especially compelling about the use of a nude in a dressing room. It has such a boudoir feel, as though she is waiting to be dressed. Here is a great example in this Jonathan Adler dressing room above and Canadian House & Home below. The last picture is in my own dressing room. Note too the other wonderful elements in the room above-the crystal chandelier, leopard, Lucite, a mirrored chest, an oversized ottoman-you see these featured again and again in really well done dressing rooms.

I've been "scribbling" like mad to add photos and take notes on the file for my "future" dressing room. You've presented, over days, such solid elements to make it perfect.

I was in Thomasville in Tyson's yesterday and there in all it's glory was a black chinoiserie chevel mirror!!! It was a little over a grand if your in the market!
Would look great in any of these spaces!

What I love about a dressing room is that it's a fabulous opportunity to go ultra-glamorous -- all that hyper-girly stuff that perhaps isn't the right choice for the public spaces in your house.
