How I decorate my dressing table area

I love collecting little pieces for my home, personalising it, adding personal touches to make it represent, me. One space I am working on at the moment is my dressing table area which, at the moment, doubles up as an office too. 

It's a very clean glossy space which I am pretty pleased with but I knew I had a lot of space on the walls to fill.
I scoured Pinterest to look for inspiration. I knew what I wanted, a montage of all the things I love which is essentially what this blog is about.

I really wanted to share some things I found recently because they are just so pretty! 



I wanted to look for some prints online which lead me to Etsy one of my favourite websites, to be honest for little quirky pieces. While watching Devil Wears Prada (my all time favourite film) and I spotted this framed, fashion illustration of Miranda Priestly and I was instantly so in love with it I love the fact she is holding the Runway magazine too it just looks so cool and so pretty and I thought it was perfect for what I was thinking of having.


The second print I picked up is equally as beautiful with the most perfect girl gang. Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor. I love how this looks especially next to my dressing table it is the perfect place for this type of print. You can find where these prints are from 'here' 


Another thing I love to use for decoration? Beautiful books! these two are my current favourites at the moment I love having them on my dressing table because I love the aesthetic and also they are easily accessible, I usually have whichever books I am reading at that moment. 


Paris: Through a Fashion Eye by Megan Hess is an amazing book, I love the illustrations they are beautiful and I can relate to it so much. Paris is one of my favourite cities and reading this book just makes me wish I was back! It has everything you could possibly need, places to go, places to eat it actually works as an amazing guide if you're looking to visit Paris pick this book up for sure! 
I actually wrote a post about my thoughts and memories of Paris recently which you can find 'here' because I couldn't stop thinking about Paris since I picked up this book! 


The second book is 'How To Be An Overnight Success Making it in Business' by Maria Hatzistefanis Founder & CEO of the skincare brand we all know and love Rodial. I find books like these so inspiring hearing her story and how she made her way to the top the struggles, the triumphs it's so easy to consider big businesses as overnight successes without knowing all the background and hard work that goes into it. I think sometimes we think things look easy so assume it was easy to achieve but at the end of the day anything worth having is in fact hard work! and if you love hearing girl boss stories you will love Maria Hatzistefanis story!
