Fit for an American Queen

By: Fallon Hogerty

I’ve always been enamored by Jackie Kennedy’s feminine White House dressing room. The First Lady savored her time in this space, supposedly saying that her dressing room was the only place she could relax, read, and write. Can’t you just picture her curled up on that pale blue tufted chaise, glass of fine French bordeaux and book in hand? I think we all need a space to ourselves to unwind (lest we lose our minds!). Whether you’re decorating a quiet area from scratch or simply looking to add a bit of Camelot flair to your humble abode, here are a few curated suggestions that you’re sure to enjoy for years to come.
