1. GO FOR GOLD

To create a makeup station in a tiny corner, decorator Kirsty Lindley combined a classic bamboo mirror updated with gold paint with a small white desk and a contemporary chair. A set of glass jars makes accessories easy to find.

In keeping with the clean lines of this bedroom, the dressing table consists of a glass-topped floating unit and an unframed mirror. Drawers on either side provide plenty of storage space so that the surface remains uncluttered. Decor by Kirsty Lindley.

4. SIMPLY WHITE

One of the easiest ways to create a pretty dressing table is with a simple trestle table. Combine it with a stool upholstered in a botanical fabric, fresh flowers, glass accessories and a framed mirror for a look that’s fresh and summery. Decor by Jonathan Avnon.

5. SHAKE IT UP

Don’t be afraid to mix styles. Here, an antique dressing table lives happily with a buttoned stool and silver accessories while an ornate mirror gives just the right amount of glamour. A mod lamp in complementary grey adds extra light.
