Is your morning routine a mad dash around your wardrobe trying to find your favorite piece of jewelry? Has it become more of a chore than an enjoyment? Then you need to slow down and smell the roses, and perhaps this blog hop will make your ideal morning routine a reality!
If you're linking over from my friends Kim and Lacey's blog, Styled with Lace, welcome! I'm so thrilled you are here! If you're a regular reader, welcome back as I share some boudoir styling tips with you today.
Welcome to our master suite! The dressing area greets us as we step in, so I try to style the built-in vanity with a welcoming view. I'm sure you've heard many times that being organized makes your morning routine much more efficient. My goal is to keep my vanity organized while staying pretty.
I share this vanity area with the hubby. So nice of him to let me hog the vanity, while he gets the space of that marble dish on the right 😁
I've styled the vanity in several different ways over the months since its completion, and I always use some common elements to keep all the stuff from looking like a hot mess.
I have two main trays on the vanity; one for perfume bottles and the other for jewelries. The trays help to corral like items together, and make cleaning much easier.
I love how the mirror trays add glam and sparkle to the vanity. The perfume bottles seem to sparkle even more with the light reflected from the mirror tray.
I don't own a huge collection of perfume, just enough for the different seasons and occasions. I'm lucky the fragrances that I love come in such pretty bottles to be displayed!
On the jewelry tray, I keep several pretty dishes of daily jewelries for easy access; one of each for my bracelets/ bangles, rings holder and earrings.
It's fun to discover how objects can be multi-functional. I'm using a crystal pillar candle holder as a dish for earrings, and a tea cup for my bracelets.
I love how they serve up some sparkles and add color and dimensions to the vanity.
Some jewelry boxes are pretty enough to stand on their own as part of your vanity's decor. The rarely worn and precious pieces can be kept in their pretty boxes and displayed in a cloche.
With such a pretty display of jewelry boxes, you would want to elevate it so that it's easily visible. The simplest way to achieve this is to lift the display on cute books or boxes to create a beautiful vignette.
I decorate the vanity as with any vignette, by creating different layers of height. My tray of perfume bottles is at the lowest. The lifted display cloche creates a mid-tier. A tall gorgeous bouquet of roses completes the vignette by adding a touch of femininity and glam to the vanity.
But we're not done! I didn't want to hide my statement necklaces in drawers; I love seeing their colors and bling! This glass display box heard my calling and it's perfect for the necklaces!
What's better than waking up to beautiful jewelries at your bedside table?
And those perfume samples that I collect? I love keeping the light scents by my bed on a pretty dish. Spritz away at bed time, and fall asleep with a delightful scent.
Your jewelries aren't only for dressing you up; by decorating with them, they become an extension of you. I'm a believer that you should display items that you love and make you happy. Seeing the beautiful and organized display on your vanity would give you a great start to your day. As your day ends, you once again enjoy the view of your beloved possessions as you retire for the night.
Remember, the simplest way to pamper yourself is by beautifying your surroundings. Then why not start with your boudoir so that it gives you a happy boost to your day?
