How to Create Dressing Table Chic with Beautiful Accessories

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

A dressing table is a place for self-expression, personal style and tastes.  We decorate with our favourite luxuries and if dressed with care can play a staring role in our bedrooms.  Use a mixture of storage items and decorative pieces to transform it into an area that is not only beautiful but also practical.  Think about how you want to use your dressing table, is it for hair and make-up or a place for the final jewellery touches. Trinket Boxes Trinket and jewellery boxes are not only decorative but provide fantastic storage for your precious gems and costume pieces.  Remember, not all your jewellery needs to be easily accessible so think what you need for your daily pieces and the rest of your collection could be stored in a drawer or other box.  Boxes displayed on your dressing table should complement the space and not overpower it.
