LCY Styles on Refinery29: One Room, Two Ways

I was so excited to work with Refinery29 on my latest project: styling the typical awkwardly small Chicago bedroom two ways to make it useful. I used my teensy home office as the stage and restyled it to show how the same space could work as a functional dressing room and closet.

vertical bookshelf | print | lamp | pillow

 // TAKE TWO: the dressing room //
rug | moroccan pouf | lamp | garment rack

See more photos and my tips on styling both spaces over at Refinery29 today!

  5. I've been following your blog for a while now and have loved everything about your super inspiring office. But who knew it could also be such a phenomenal dressing room! The book shelf as a shoe/handbag display is just brilliant.

  7. I saw the feature on refinery29 and it was so stylish. Here in San Francisco we have the same problems of small, awkwardly shaped rooms in old Victorians. Its nice to see different solutions for the lack of space.

  10. Great idea for the bookshelf with the clutch & shoes. Some items are just that gorgeous and should be displayed.
