I really love the way rooms come together over time, with special pieces finding their way into different rooms at different stages of one’s life. A chair that was once on your front porch might show up in your son’s room five years later, in the family room after that, and maybe twenty years later in a vacation home. Pieces that you carry with you throughout your life become more than just an object you bought at some store, they become part of your personal history.
In that spirit, I’ve come up with a new feature for Making it Lovely. I’ll be following one piece of furniture through several stages and presenting a mood board for each. The first will be the Borghese 3-Drawer Dresser.
I’ll create five rooms, each featuring the dresser, and follow it through an imagined life. It will make it’s first appearance in a little girl’s nursery, follow her through her teenage years, to her first tiny apartment, her first home, and finally to her dream home. I hope you’ll enjoy coming along.
