{décor inspiration: tufted pink & carrera}




“. . . chests draped in cloth served as dressing tables until early in the eighteenth century, when tables de toilette, known also as poudreuses, made their debut” . . . dressing tables seem to be a recurring theme lately, especially mirrored ones {also here}, but elegantly draped and ruffled is also lovely {and really quite wonderfully romantic}, especially when surrounded by floor-to-ceiling carrera, alongside grand archways, and beneath a nineteenth-century silvered french chandelier . . . also quite adore the pink rhinestone-tufted vanity stool in luxurious dusky pink fabric from lelièvre, paris, and spectacularly trimmed in rhinestones . . .

{p.s.} the rhinestone trim is from m&j trimmings, nyc & the art déco lamps are from a paris flea market

  • Oh my goodness, Roséline —such a glamorous setting! I think it’s absolutely perfect…

    I am so mad at myself for not being able to stay up to watch the royal wedding live. I came home quite late last evening and was too tired to stay up through the night/early morning. I have been watching videos online though, and really enjoying every bit of it!

    I think your post on tiaras is the best one I’ve ever seen —unbelievable! It deserves an award for the incredible depth in history, the research you have done and the visuals for us to enjoy.

    I hope you are having a fabulous Saturday morning and will enjoy every moment of this weekend.
