1. A glamorous vanity

Flaunt your personality with a stylish flair by creating a bespoke interior scheme. For a homeowner seeking a bachelorette pad that embodied a sense of feminine romance, Design Intervention’s Nikki Hunt created a stunning hotel-inspired abode with lavish details.

A stylish vanity area can be found in the stylish walk-in wardrobe; featuring mirrored details and gleaming gold accents, the space exudes a sense of Hollywood-style glamour. The back of the chair in the dressing room takes its visual cues from a vintage corset dress, adding a tactile touch to the space.

Another stylish nook can be found in the master bedroom. Although it lacks a wall-hung mirror, a small tabletop mirror could still fit onto this smaller nook for easy touch-ups of your makeup. It's set against a backdrop featuring a wallpaper with plum blossom motifs. Brought to life in shades of blush and cream, the delicate floral mural is a nod to the homeowner’s Chinese heritage and adds a touch of Eastern influence to the room.
