Furniture Fridays

Happy Friday all and welcome to the wonderful feature that is Furniture Fridays!  Today we are joined by the lovely Emily from Emily Loves.  Although Em isn't a designer, she is one of the reasons that I got involved in this whole blogging world and so it means a lot to me that she is guest posting here today.  She helped us with the organisation and execution of our wedding last summer and is always on point with fashion, make-up and everything stylish. Please join me in welcoming Em, and I highly suggest checking out her blog for all her tricks and recommendations - thanks Em!

Happy Friday Loves!  Can I just tell you how excited I was when Anna asked if I'd like to write a post for her Furniture Friday feature!  I am not a designer, by trade or by nature, nor do I know any of the industry lingo.  However, what I do know is how furniture makes me feel.  That feeling is usually how I decide to purchase, pin or even like an item.  I knew as soon as I read the email from Anna that the piece of furniture I would talk about is the vanity.  Having the space for a vanity table is the peak of luxury in my mind.  I lived in residence all through university and now find myself in the tiniest apartment possible, meaning that there just isn't the space for such a, ahem, vain item.  My mum inherited a beautiful old vanity from her dad while I was away at school and for the four months I lived at home post-graduation I was spoiled enough to have it in my room.  Now I check Kijiji and Craigslist on a weekly basis just in case a really great antique vanity comes available that I can purchase and store for my future home.

White is my current favourite look, but a dark stained wood is also beautiful.  Oh, how a girl can dream!

Do you own a vanity?
