We picked up this beautiful Mid-century chest of drawers at Sunbury Antiques Market last week and we just can’t stop playing around with them. We’ve dressed them so many different ways in the last couple of days because we love the way they look with absolutely everything in the house.
So this morning, we set ourselves a challenge: to take these lovely Mid-century drawers and to create three very different looks with them. They still need to be practical and easy to use as they’re the main storage in the master bedroom.
These are the results and we’d love to know which you prefer! Let us know in the comments or get in touch on Twitter.
Looking classy in gold and white
This lovely teak wood always looks so beautiful set against the brightness of gold. White, gold and wood are a perfect combination – simple and classic. For Hannah, gold and brass are personal favourites, she’s drawn like a magpie to anything gold and shiny!
These collections of flowers bring everything to life. The pink in the painting is drawn out by the bright colours of the ranunculus and by the faux flowers in the small silver vase (but shh, don’t tell anyone they’re not real). We love using the same colour of flowers in mismatching vases – it still feels coherent but so much more interesting.
Classy Seventies elegance
The blues and yellows of these vases and perfume bottle really pop against the warm wood of these Mid-century drawers and are in keeping with the heritage of the piece. Throwing in a gilt gold frame (even if it is empty!) just mixes things up a bit.
