Your vanity is a sacred space. It’s the place you go to every morning to wake up, prep yourself for the day, and put that HBIC face on. If it’s looking a little more drab than fab (or you want to add a vanity in your home), we’ve got you covered with this week’s edition of Decor Resolutions. We’ll show you how to decorate the area, no matter how much (or little) space you have to play with. So grab your makeup brushes and scroll down to see how we’d style a vanity for the boho home, the minimalist abode, and the preppy space.
HOW TO DECORATE A BOHO-CHIC VANITY
Start the day off on a happy note with a mid-century wood desk and a Moroccan pouf to perch on. Bring in a mirror that’s big enough to see ev-er-y-thing and a little lamp for extra light. Grab a gold tray to organize your perfume bottles and face creams, then channel only the good vibes with a moon phase necklace holder and a rose quartz pyramid.

HOW TO DECORATE A MINIMALIST VANITY
You don’t need a ton of space to carve out a little primping station. A wall-mounted shelf desk from IKEA will give you all the space you need, especially when topped with a mirror that boasts an added shelf. Wall-mounted lights provide even more valuable counter space for jewelry stands and a phone holder (all the more handy for those Youtube makeup tutorials).
