Making it Yours (MIY) is a new feature for Making it Lovely. I’ll be following one piece of furniture through several stages in an imagined life and presenting a mood board for each. The first item I’m designing around is the Borghese 3-Drawer Dresser.
We’ve seen the dresser follow our imagined girl from her nursery to her teenage bedroom, and now it’s making the move with her to her first (tiny) apartment. Her place may be small, but there’s a little space next to the door where the dresser will fit perfectly. There’s a set of lacquer boxes that sit on top, and an Owl Umbrella Stand on the floor shows a sense of humor.
The girl living in this apartment doesn’t have much of a budget, but she’s slowly getting some nice pieces. The couch may be from Craigslist (or a hand-me-down), but she’s got an awesome side table next to it and an expensive looking lamp that only cost $30. Blue paint on the walls makes the apartment feel fresh and fun, and an orange poster on the wall helps the orange in the couch fabric look like it belongs.
When we next see our girl and her dresser, she’ll be living in her first home…
