Beyond the desire for a glamorous haven, the clients envisioned a space that was not only functional but also showcased their extensive collection of handbags, shoes, and accessories. The addition of an island became a crucial element, offering both a focal point and additional storage. The colour scheme, a blend of creamy neutrals and rich gold accents, was chosen to complement their taste for timeless elegance while creating a harmonious backdrop for their cherished possessions.
West Hallam, Derbyshire
Careful consideration went into selecting materials that would not only elevate the room’s aesthetic but also provide practical solutions. Luxurious cream tones, complemented by gold accents in fixtures and fittings, set the scene. The bespoke cabinetry, crafted from premium materials, was extended to create an elegant island, offering both storage and a dedicated space for showcasing their curated collection of handbags and accessories.
Our collaborative design journey commenced with a meticulous measurement of the space, ensuring accuracy in every detail. Understanding how our clients would use their dressing room was pivotal.
Through in-depth discussions, we discovered their need for a dedicated dressing table, a space where the couple could comfortably prepare for the day ahead. The addition of the dressing table became an integral part of the design, providing a practical yet elegant solution. To further grasp the aesthetic preferences of the clients, they shared images of spaces and elements that inspired them.
This exchange of ideas allowed us to refine our vision and incorporate design elements that resonated with their sense of style. The amalgamation of accurate measurements, an understanding of their functional needs, and inspiration from their preferred aesthetics laid the foundation for a truly bespoke design tailored to their unique lifestyle.
The design process was enriched by this collaborative approach, ensuring that the final space not only met their practical requirements but also reflected the clients’ personal style and aspirations.
Every detail of the dressing room was planned to align with the client’s vision. The island, crafted to perfection, became a focal point for both storage and a tasteful display of their accessories accented with a delicate LED feature strip at each end. LED framed floating mirrors, and custom lighting fixtures added layers of refinement. Perfectly set sockets for hairdryers and straighteners, finish the look for the perfect setting to begin the day or prepare for a night out.
“Don’t underestimate the potential of a small dressing room. With the right design touches and the magic of mirrors and lighting, even the tiniest spaces can radiate stunning elegance.”
