the vanity project

One of the features I miss most from “House & Garden” is the magazine’s “Vanity” market piece. Though a “Vanity” page didn’t appear in every issue, when it did it was beyond! A scanned in a few of my favorite vanities from my magazine archives. They’re all wonderful, but I just die for the first vanity - the scene was inspired by decorating doyenne Dorothy Draper. Which do you prefer?

You can tell a lot about a person from their vanity, can't you? It's all about your favorite things. I wish someone would pick up this idea and keep it going.

Vanity #3 gets my vote! I love the robin's egg blue Estee Lauder bottle (is it current?) the vanity looks like it could be from the 60's or from today. It classic and there's an aura of mystery about it.

I love all of these Fallon! I would have to say my favorite is #1 because I love the red tulips and Chanel No.5.

The third shot is my absolute favorite - It's very me! I have these vintagey glass miniature serving plates that I use for oversized rings and such on my vanity :-)

Love them all. And so happy to find the original source for #4, which I have featured on my sites. Going back to add your credit now.
Thanks for all the loveliness.
