Okay you guys, remember The Glam Cave I designed…like 2.5 years ago? I’m finally ready to share it! 😉 But seriously, how did I never share the full room tour? I shared when it was featured in California Homes but never the whole shebang. Luckily, the design of this dressing room/closet is timeless (think Beverly Hills Hotel) so you can still get the look today. Here goes…

The closet itself, meaning the beautiful white cabinetry, is TCS Closets by The Container Store.
You can choose to add doors, select your pulls, how you’d like it laid out — the whole shebang (and that’s the second time I’ve now said shebang in this post already — #shebangs #shebangs).
I love the lucite-esque pulls — so glamorous!
Of course, the real scene stealer in this closet is the banana leaf wallpaper.
My inspiration for this space was The Beverly Hills Hotel, clearly, so when I spotted Justina Blankeney’s Nana wallpaper at Hygge & West, instantly I knew I had found “the one.” I especially loved the pink in the wallpaper.
Full disclosure: When the wallpaper first came in, the client was a little surprised (re: scared) at how much pink was in it, but luckily trusted me and the vision for the space. Once up on the walls, both the husband and wife could not love it more.
The trick to making it work was to balance it with a lot of white — white closets, ceilings, cabinetry and countertops opposite the closet (which hid a washer and dryer!) — and desk/vanity.
Speaking of desk, can you EVEN with this beauty? It’s by Kate Spade.
The blush brushstroke lamps are by Jana Bek — they picked up on the pink in the wallpaper perfectly.
Details are everything so I had to add this Pool Boy button — that rings!
The mirror above the desk made this area more like a vanity — perfect for sipping a martini while you touch up your makeup…or chat on the tele to your girlfriends.
BTW the very Audrey-esque little black dress that I’m wearing above is by Camilyn Beth.
That mannequin head form is JA too, but no longer available — drats, I know!
But the cute lips vase is JA and is linked below.
I’d originally ordered a floor-length mirror to go on this wall, but when it arrived it was damaged (devastating!).
It’s such a blast getting to design rooms — a chance to bring the “World of Golightly” to life, which can pretty much be summed up as Audrey Hepburn meets Slim Aarons meets The Beverly Hills Hotel.
I have this thing with old-school vintage glamour! You too?
What do you think? Would you love a closet like this?
Clearly I would, which is why one year later, this happened. 🙂
Thank you for reading and a huge thank you to all of the amazing vendors who made this room possible, the best clients/homeowners for being so wonderful to work with, and to Christopher Kennedy, whom without The Christopher Kennedy Compound: Modernism Week Showhouse, this room would not have been possible.
p.s. The chandeliers and pendant lights are from Ferguson!
