I finally got the last finishing touches I've been waiting on for my closet so I thought I'd do a blog post about my new additions as well as more detailed photos of my closet.
These are two high gloss silver trunks I purchased from Z Gallerie
Pretty boxes or trunks are a great way to store mismatched things like all extra makeup.
I use them to break up the all white color scheme and I've found that anything that reflects light (not just mirrors) seem to make the room appear larger. I also added these FANTASTIC Command Hooks I got from Home depot!! They are metal chrome hooks (not the ugly white plastic ones) and they're a great way to showcase some of my current favorite pieces or perhaps some outfits I have assembled together but have not had the opportunity to wear yet!
I also picked up this great chrome silhouette table from Z Gallerie as well. I've put it in the corner of my dressing room and I put my purse on it when I enter my dressing room. I'm kind of a germaphobe so I have to wipe down my purses with baby wipes before I put them back on the shelf. (And yes I realize that makes me sound totally crazy hahaha but it is what it is!!!)
I also nabbed this mirrored tray from Z Gallerie as well! I LOVEEEEEE mirrored anything. When I started designing my closet I looked at HUNDREDS if not THOUSANDS of pictures of closets online and I decided I wanted Lisa Vanderpump's from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills all mirrored furniture closet. My budget however does not equate to Lisa Vanderpumps soooo... instead I picked up mirrored accent pieces to reflect light and add dimension to the room. :)
I LOVE LOVE going to T.J. Maxx back in the states and luckily I found one here in Germany - I scored the table lamp for $20 Euro's and the little bathroom cups between $3 to $5 Euro's each which I'm currently using at makeup brush holders.
My tufted grey ottoman from Bed Bath & Beyond! I heart it!! I originally wanted to put a sofa in my dressing room (AHAHAHAHAHA. I don't know what I was thinking because I can't even fit an arm chair in there.) Anyways I HEART it because it fits perfectly right in front of my shoe shelf and I sit on it when I'm trying to decide which shoes to wear with my outfit.
All of the white closets and bookshelves are from the PAX shelving system from Ikea!
The chair is the infamous Philip Starke Louis Ghost Chair. The dresser is from a local German furniture store called XXL and the piano leg silhouette high gloss vanity table is from another local German furniture store called Wilheilm.
All of the trays/cake holder that I'm using to house my various costume jewelry were purchased at Ikea and a local German cooking store! I had the hardest time finding the cake plate holder w/ bell jar dome you would think that would be easy to find but it wasn't. Just a cakeplate was easy to find but I needed one with a lid so I could keep the dust out I went to 3 different home goods stores to find it.
Some of my most absolute favorite pieces of clothing in my entire wardrobe which ironically I don't wear too frequently. Note to self - must rectify this immediately.
The Pièce de résistance of the room! My shoe shelf! Sometimes at night when I can't sleep I come into my closet and sit on my ottoman and stare at my shoe shelf.
Don't laugh at me ::CRIES:: :p
More mirrored accents to break up the room and give dimension!
The tiny mirrored box is where I house my wedding set.. I actually have two engagement ring settings and two wedding bands.. because sometime last year I went crazy and had the Hubs change my more classically set engagement ring into something more vintage.. and then because I changed my engagement ring I needed a new wedding band AND THEN a month later broke down crying because I wanted my original engagement ring back. Apparently I'm a sentimental nutjob. bahahahahaha!
That's a wrap!
I'll probably be updating things here and there and when I'll do I'll update you guys with things that I might have added or moved around :)!
Oh and if you have any questions ask away :)!!
