I think January is my favourite month, I love how unassuming it is after the razzmatazz of Christmas. It's only through Styling The Seasons that I've worked this out! I've opted for a quiet start to the year, working my way through the piles of clutter that have gathered over the last few months. I began with my craft area (soon to be pictured) and my dressing table which I have captured here. Out went the old lipsticks I've held onto for way too long, kirby grips now have a proper home and ugly deodorant cans put away (why don't they make toiletries prettier?). Everything is much cleaner and the whole space is only filled with things I love.
I've always been fascinated by dressing tables. When I was a fashion designer (true story that was my actual job) I remember reading a trend report looking at dressing tables around the world - I love what they say about a person. As I'm currently figuring out motherhood having a space to call my own is so important. I've only kept out my me essentials which after much sorting are jewellery, perfume and a few dishes I've collected on my travels. I've packed away most of my large necklaces and displayed my tiny necklaces. The pink salt dish is from Es Trenc and I have a little ring box from CatBird in Brooklyn which I love. I'm not hugely sentimental but I like to have reminders of my favourite places and trips around me.
Styling The Seasons is a monthly project run by Katy from Apartment Apothecary and myself. Each month we invite you to style a surface in your home to reflect what the month means to you. Share your images on your blog or on any social media platform using the #StylingtheSeasons hashtag.
