Closet Space

It's beginning to look a lot like Show House Season...

Yesterday, a friend and I took a rainy walk over to the Southern Accents Show House at Regents Park. The entire townhouse is decorated by Atlanta's famed Dan Carithers, and is photographed in the Southern Accents May issue (with 360 degree tours on the website). However, my favorite room, the dressing room (above), was even better seen in person.

While mirrored cabinetry seems to be making a comeback in dressing rooms, I found this layout to be particularly innovative when faced with a long and narrow space. By using the area between two closets, you are able to turn what would normally be a hallway into a dressing room with the essential element, a three-way mirror. There is even room left over for an antique dresser.

To take a video tour of the dressing room, narrated by Mr. Carithers, click here. All Hollywood actors should take note: this is what a Southern accent is supposed to sound like.

The Showhouse at Regents Park is open Wed-Sunday through June 1st. (Photography by Erica George Dines).
