Dressing Room – Isle of Man
This hand painted dressing room in The Isle of Man was designed to maximize storage, whilst working entirely with the architecture of the space – which was an oak and glass-framed extension to a tannery dating from the early 19th Century. Light, bright and visually stunning, the wardrobes were carefully designed to go to the ceiling to offer full storage in an elegant manner. The doors with mirror slips echo the oak uprights of the extension.
Leading in to the dressing room, a matching pair of ‘tall-boy’ style chests act as introductory pieces, complete with glass tops set over faux ostrich skin and mother-of-pearl handles with polished nickel. Keeping this pair free-standing meant that the entrance wasn’t overpowering, whilst at the same time, respected the original stone wall of the property.
The island offers a place to sit whilst putting on shoes, socks etc, for laying out garments…or to pack a holiday suitcase! The rounded oak trim and skirting are accents, moving a little oak in to the room to reflect the oak and glass framed outer structure of the room.
Everything is as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside – with motion sensor hanging light rails, glass fronted drawers, pull out oak trays and faux ostrich skin lining the shoe shelves.
