Total Basset Case: Barbie's Warbdrobe

Dec 4, 2012

Barbie's Warbdrobe

Our office recently had the opportunity to participate in a unique install in Cincinnati.
We were given a single room at an art gallery and able to do anything we wanted with it.

We thought through a lot of options but eventually decided to base the room on 'Barbie's Wardrobe'.
We envisioned a New York socialites dressing room from the 1950s and 1960s.
A fun, flirty and glamorous room.
Full of glitz, sparkle and all things girly. 

We had so much fun putting the room together and creating such a girly space for our 'client', Ms. Barbie herself.
To complete the room we used a mixture of re-purposed, reupholstered, new and old items and items borrowed from some of our favorite vendors around the city.
We had the big reveal party last week and had a great turnout and a lot of support!
That. chandelier. I. die.
And a huge thanks for my sweet friends, Katie, Bethany and Autumn, coming out to support me!

I'm ready to move in, aren't you?
