Making it Yours (MIY), a new feature for Making it Lovely, continues today. I’m following one piece of furniture through several stages in an imagined life and presenting a mood board for each. The first item I’ve been designing around is the Borghese 3-Drawer Dresser.
The dresser has had quite a journey, showing up in our fictional girl’s nursery, teenage bedroom,first (tiny) apartment, and first home. Many years have passed but the dresser is still holding up and is now headed with her to her dream home.
The table lamp from her last home is here, along with the side table she’s had since her first apartment. Her taste has changed over the years though, and now she leans more toward a subtly glamorous look. A velvet sofa and graceful chair are complemented by silk curtains and a matching pillow. Our girl does still love color and pattern, and that’s brought in with yellow walls, a patterned pillow and a gorgeous patterned rug.
Here are all five of the rooms I’ve designed featuring the Borghese 3-Drawer Dresser. Several items appear in more than one setting, just as you would bring items with you from home to home.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the first edition of Making it Yours!
