Add a Pop of Pink

Black vanity with fun pink chair and decor.

Jackie Clair

Don’t be afraid to go ultra-feminine when styling a vanity area—frilly hues and accessories are more than welcome here. Blogger and photographer Jackie Clair spray-painted a simple wire chair in a sweet pink shade. The color contrasts wonderfully with her classic black vanity table.

Celebrate Midcentury Modern Style

Love midcentury modern style? Combine a few on-trend pieces to create a stylish vanity setup, as blogger Gemma Louise did. Wishbone chairs are both sophisticated and comfortable (especially when paired with a soft sheepskin throw, as seen here).

If you can’t find a vanity table you absolutely love, note that a desk will do the trick, too—this one is from West Elm.

Incorporate Custom Touches

Chantilly Waryck

Blogger Chantilly Waryck added her own touches to a charming gold vanity from Urban Outfitters. By wrapping the mirror in a strand of faux florals and sourcing a plush accent chair in lieu of a backless stool, Waryck customized this boho-chic piece to make it look even ultra inviting.

Don’t be afraid to pair a more modern bone inlay vanity with seating that leans a bit more grandmillennial—like this pleated fabric stool! In this space, Mimi Meacham of Marian Louise Designs proves that simple is stunning (and that you can never go wrong with a faux fiddle-leaf fig).

Add Personality

R Johnston Interiors

Freestanding vanities allow for plenty of styling opportunities, but you can still add personality to those that are built into a bathroom. As seen in the above setup by Rebecca Johnston of R Johnston Interiors, a throw rug, textural chair, and corresponding throw pillow may be all you need to give a sleek space some extra life.

Maximize Storage

Aryanna Harrell

Keep go-to products within sight with acrylic drawers like the ones blogger Aryanna Harrell used in her space. Seeing what you have available may prevent you from making duplicate purchases when you’re out running errands, and it will also help streamline your routine.

Bins and sliding drawers are necessary in order to keep products from looking too haphazard—and they’ll also prevent lip glosses and other tubes from rolling onto the floor.

Style a Shelfie

Kimberly Duran

Blogger Kimberly Duran was fortunate enough to be able to set up a mini makeup room, and her vanity is oh so charming! Placing open shelving off to the side of her table allows Duran to showcase some of her favorite bags and products while making the most of a petite wall.
