I am a dink. I’d love not to be, but I am. I am a dink with a spacious 5 bedrooms home in the ‘burbs. Looking at the baskets of clothes I have lined up in my half of the walk in robe I knew there had to be a better way. Without kicking hubby out, which had occurred to me. I’d seen my sister operate a wardrobe room in the past. She called it a dressing room, being very proper about it all. I loved it. We all giggled a little. But a seed was planted. The Liv moved into her new home and claimed a spare room as a wardrobe room and I got determined.

I needed one.

I want to know what clothes I have, the jewellery  the everything. I want it laid out. I want my own space back since Hubby has crapped up the office on me. Well you have babe, you know you have, that pile of filing on the floor isn’t doing itself now, is it? So I spoke with Hubby and we both agreed that a wardrobe room it is. Somewhere to lay out outfit photo outfits, somewhere to actually be able to hang all my clothes. Somewhere to hang the necklaces so they stop living in a tangled ball.

And so it begins.

The building of, my wardrobe room.

It’s so freaking extravagant.

It makes me smile.

2012 has all been about extravagant, it turns out.

I’ll keep you posted.

  • It sounds wonderful! Extravagant yes, but hey go for it, I say! 🙂

  • Yay, wardrobe rooms are THE BEST, I miss mine so terribly.

  • ooh.. you really ARE a fashion blogger now!! I am jealous. Robe Room is awesome. You need to call it ‘The Closet’ (with capitals) like in the Devil Wears Prada. Like it’s a DESTINATION. “I’ll meet you at The Closet.”

    • Turns out, I might just be! Haha. The Closet it is. Will you draw her a cute sign? 😉

  • Oooooh, I can’t wait to see it! I wish I had a room all to myself as well…with a big ornate mirror, a plush ottoman to sit on while doing up my shoes, and a table/chair combo to do my makeup…oh and a chandelier!

    • I can’t wait to actually finish it. Might need to move the bed out, or maybe just swap it with the pulled down single bed in the other spare room… Hmmm SO many options. I’ll keep you posted! 😉

    SO jealous! I’ve been buying a lot more clothes over the past 6 months or so, and will do more next year. But my tiny section of the wardrobe leaves it all so bunched up and impossible to view properly. Joel has an office. They boys have a playroom. I want a dressing room!

    Will we get to see pics?

    • Of course you’ll get picks! Do it. Claim a dressing room. You know you want to. 😉

  • Trina

    Does this mean we get to go to Ikea to buy wadrobe stuff???

  • Michelle

    If/when you have kids that room could still act as a dressing room for you all! I love the idea of a ‘butler’s pantry’ for all the clothes/shoes/accessories!

    • I know right? Hide everything behind one door. If it’s a mess, it’s my fault. And if I can’t find anything. Same thing.

  • Same! And I think so too. Not sure Kel need any more space but considering giving him some more draws so all his stuff is in the one place.

    Oh what a lucky lady! I’d love a Robe Room. Can’t wait to see more! xx
