All Dressed Up

All Dressed Up

When El Dorado Hills resident Beverly Steiner moved her home office out of her master suite, she was left with an empty room that needed a new purpose. She already had a bedroom, bathroom and huge walk-in closet. What she could use was an amped-up dressing room—a place where she could not only get dressed but do her hair and makeup, stage outfits, pack for travel, store jewelry, have coffee and hang out, alone or with friends.

Interior designer Todd Peddicord helped her with the project. They opted for an elegant cream-and-gray color scheme and furnishings with a touch of old Hollywood glamour. The result: a room where Steiner, a busy real estate executive, can get away from it all.

1. Jewelry drawers have movable stacking trays that provide plenty of storage. The antique-brass drawer pulls are oversized to give them heft and drama

2. A wall of hooks allows Steiner to see individual items of clothing so that she can stage an outfit or series of outfits.

3. The “mini kitchen” has an undermount fridge for champagne and bottled water, a counter for the coffeemaker and a cabinet to store wine glasses and mugs.

4. Instead of a stylist’s rack to hang clothing (Steiner’s original idea), Peddicord suggested striated gray wood cabinetry for a high-end department-store look.

5. The Safavieh shag rug is soft and luxurious. “I told Beverly, ‘Just wait until you get your feet on this,’” says Peddicord.
