For a television and Broadway actress, a lot of their time is spent in a dressing room. This is true for Sutton Foster, who wanted to transform her dressing room (which she calls her ‘home away from home’) into a place that felt cozy and comfortable. Not only does she spend a lot of time in the space getting ready and hanging out between takes on long work days, but she also needed a place her friends and colleagues could comfortably visit and where her two dogs could come along with her and be right at home.
Her friend Julien helped her turn her dressing room into a charming and colorful space that captures her essence. Even though the space is small, they made smart use of every inch by carefully planning it all out and then selecting decor that fit the scale while still providing plenty of comfort and seating.
While most of us may not have a need for a dressing room, this home tour offers some great ideas for anyone decorating a small space. It proves that even the smallest spaces can have a lot of style and functionality.

Sutton Foster Dressing Room Tour
A colorful, empty frame with strings across it is a fun DIY project you can do to display photos in that makes it easy to switch them out any time you want.
Hang some pretty wall art over a dog bed to integrate it right into the room’s decor and make it more of a vignette.
In a small seating area, opt for smaller end tables that pack a lot of style, like the tray table, wood table and lucite table seen here.
A chic basket is perfect for holding dog toys that will still look great in the space.
A fabric board is another stylish, DIY option from which to hang postcards, birthday cards, and photos.
This bookcase is brought to life with colorful accents and fun pieces of decor.
To create some variety on your shelves, stack some of the books on their sides and top them off with a stylish accent piece.
This gallery wall creates a charming focal point above the sofa that fits the scale of the space perfectly.
If you want to create more of a dressing room look in your bedroom or bathroom, opt for the traditional beauty bulbs as your lighting source to give it that Hollywood or Broadway effect.
