The Vanity Table


If I stop to think about how many things I want in my dream house I end up realizing it should be as large as castle, but somewhere central, if you know what I mean. Cause if we are to dream, let’s at least dream big!

Besides alcove beds, a round stair library, breakfast nooks, indoor swings, colorful walls, decadent chandeliers hanging everywhere I’m really, really obsessed with having a vanity table.
I bet that’s really shocking coming from a fashion blogger, the more modest of the human beings, known for being shy and reserved, not so keen on attention!:)))

And I’m not talking about a table with a small mirror and a chair, I’m thinking of a grand, indulging, slightly excessive, preferably vintage vanity table. 
Yes, I’m basically describing a shrine, but less creepy because instead of photos with Charlie Hunnam, love potions and candles we’re just talking about bottles of perfume, make up and scattered jewelry. Inoffensive stuff!

Something to make you feel like Old Hollywood royalty – a bit of an altar for you narcissistic side! :))) When it comes to vanity tables I’m thinking what would Rita Heyworth, Ava Gardner or Elisabeth Taylor do? Maybe I should consider a powder room - a vanity mirror seems suddenly insufficient!
I have no budget to worry about - dreaming is for free so! :)))

Here you have some visuals in case I’m not painting a picture vivid enough! 

 The soft blue and gold mix in this vintage vanity tables gives an aristocratic vibe I very much approve of!
The appropriate amount of girly things a vanity mirror should be covered in!
 Absolutely stunning vintage vanity mirrors with elaborate details!
 The flying, angel wings teddy bear could be a bit much - who am I kidding? I'm feeling it, I need one just like that!
 Now we're talking - a vase bearing Cupid it's a must on this exquisite, blue, vintage vanity table! You just have to have at least one!
  How about some vintage French style cream and gold vanity tables? Yes, please!

 Do you feel your life is complete without one of these? Really? Think about it!

Si eu visez la o vanity table... alba sau minty, cu o oglinda maaare, dar intai trebuie sa am destul spatiu pentru ea :P. Great inspiration, though.

Hugs,

PS: Indoor swings? That sounds beyond awesome :))
