Spring Storage Solutions Part 3: Vanity Inspiration
Published Mar 24, 2011
Now that you've got your makeup and skincare streamlined, how do you show off your product stash? Keep reading for a few ideas on how to style your perfect vanity display!
It's always comforting to hold on to items from the past. Your mom's old compact, your grandmother's lipstick case--they all hold memories of treasured family beauty rituals. Keep things fresh and modern by combining your favorite beauty items with decorative keepsakes and heirloom trinkets.
In this setup, Pearle mixes her fragrances with vintage Parisian inspired elements: an Eiffel Tower statuette, a framed Degas postcard, and pearls.
The Wary Meyers designers mixed elements of modern and traditional Asian influences in this cool vanity setup. Textiles, art, and sculpture all combine to form a funky, functional space that's perfect for all your beauty needs.
For cramped quarters, save space by installing wall mounted shelves instead of traditional vanity furniture. These are definitely for the sleek minimalist at heart--for those with a larger stash of products, adding extra shelving underneath the main counter gives you more storage space.

Whether alabaster, snow, pearl, cloud, ivory, or cream, a monochromatic palette of white creates an airy, calming ambiance for beauties who desire a "zen" beauty space. This pure white vanity room from Country Living Magazine is the ultimate clean and feminine beauty space. Too much white can seem overwhelming, but striped shutters, marble veining, and a linen fabric slipcover keep this nook from looking flat. The vanity from Easy Living Magazine (right) mixes white with tonal shades of gray and metallics. If you're looking for a more unisex or masculine vanity space, this is an ideal solution for the bedroom.
