Glamorous people rejoice! Vanity rooms, a staple of classic vintage homes, are enjoying a resurgence in modern abodes.

A vanity room is a space in or near a master bath where you can sit back and pretty up surrounded by lights and mirrors, just like an old-time movie star. The rooms often feature a chair or bench, a small table or countertop, gads of mirrors, ample lighting, and places to keep your makeup, jewelry, and hair styling tools.

As bathrooms have gotten smaller, separate spaces for vanities have become less and less common. But just because you have a modern home doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some Old Hollywood luxury. Check out these ten delicious vanity rooms and get inspired to gussy up.
