Whenever I design a room I first develop a very detailed design board and Auto-Cad generated floor plan. Depending on the client and budget, all of the furniture is purchased at once or plans are based on purchasing a few items up front and filling in the rest over a period of time. Either way having a plan is essential! It establishes the style and function of the room, and deters purchasing items that may be attractive but don’t fit within the aesthetic of the space.
I have been searching for the perfect antique cabinet for this little spot in our living room for the past year. I stumbled upon this American of Martinsville bamboo cabinet a few weeks ago and immediately snatched it up. It was exactly what I wanted. In great condition and reasonable priced, the bamboo detailing fits perfectly within the laid-back/traditional character of our home, and glass doors allow me to display my ever growing collections of books, pottery, decanters and other little treasures.
It arrived this week and I immediately got to work filling it with some of my favorite things — my version of therapy!
