Lee Rose recreates the glamorous style of a Hollywood dressing room for DIY The Room.
The Hollywood dressing room is all about knowing when to glitz. Clean lines and blank white dominate functional pieces, and all the extra pieces have an an aura of luxury with rhinestones, feathers and pin-ups. Even the hangers are gilded, and hang from the folding screen as you put on your evening gown. And of course you need lots of light, mirrors, and a lovely seat to put on makeup for your opening night. Your public awaits darling!

Come behind the scenes at Her Library Adventures and tour Sophie's cosy craft room in Mildura, Australia.
I love the afternoon sunshine that pours into my craft room, it washes the room with a beautiful warm glow which is wonderfully inspiring. It's especially beautiful in the winter and there is nothing quite like sitting at the vintage table, writing letters or sewing on a Saturday afternoon.
Ami recreates the fearless personal style of singer Stevie Nicks.
Stevie Nicks has been such a personal fashion inspiration for me for many years. She's such a free spirit and not afraid to wear what she likes. I love how that shines through in her style. Flattering shirts, soft dresses, her signature shawl and boots. She has a very mysterious style in the sense of fairytales and magic.
