The Master Suite is beginning to take shape. Stud walls are up, and for the last week electricians have been up ladders with reels of wire. It is now possible to envisage finished spaces.

Which has me musing about closets. The English don’t really do “closets”. We have wardrobes, which in most cases are only as deep as your average coat-hanger. So the concept of a separate room where one stores one’s clothes is somewhat alien. And in our master suite we have not one but two rooms! There is no way that either of us will fill that much space, so I have decided to make them dual purpose and use them as dressing rooms.

I’m not a girlie girl but I fancy a bit of a “boudoir” feel for my space. I found this great idea on Pinterest, and I’d love to find some vintage fashion photos or adverts to frame to go with. (Hm, maybe a visit to the Nice antiques market – and my sister – is in order?) I also have a nice Venetian-style mirror so maybe I should put a vanity at the end for hair and make-up. I’m finding myself more and more drawn to the Deco mirrored furniture which seems to be popping up everywhere, but a nice Indian inlaid or metal-covered piece would look good too. And isn’t this chair divine?

Now, if I inflicted a boudoir on my husband I’d probably be sleeping alone! So I’m going masculine on his side. He’s a James Bond nut, so think secret agent…

Of course, we don’t even have proper walls yet so all this is in my head.

Watch this space for updates!
