dressed to impress with TRADhome

Do you dress to impress?

TRADHome Spring 2014 CoverHigh Point Furniture Market is as close as I get to Fashion Week*, so I’ve been busily sprucing up my wardrobe.  There may be a couple of Addison Weeks pieces winging their way to me!

Addison Weeks Jenkins Clutch Multi PastelI love a well-organized and well-edited closet, and I use an oversized mirror to make sure I’m pulled together before I leave the house.  Unless you catch me at the grocery store around 11 pm … in which case all bets are off.

Die. For.

Traci Zeller Quote in TRADhome MagIt was such a tough decision, but I chose the Barbara Barry classic from Baker Furniture.

Baker Furniture No 3487 Barbara Barry Dressing TableThe shape is so graceful and beautiful, and — with the variety of available finishes — the vanity can take on just about any personality.  I’m particularly fond of the lacquer finishes, although this fruitwood is yummy.   But you’ll have to read TRADhome Magazine to find out how I’d style it!

Made Goods Sorin DeskMy other two choices were the Cambridge Console by Priley Lane — which Hillary Thomas also chose, so yippee to that! — and the Sorin Desk by Made Goods.  I’m using the Sorin Desk in a still-hush-hush-but-I-can’t-wait-to-share project that will go live in June.  Think fresh, fabulous and floral!

Do you use a dressing table?  Or would you?

* The one exception?  My fabulous trip with Brizo to the Jason Wu fashion show!
