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.
The dresser was last seen in a little girl’s nursery, obviously decorated by her parents. Except now the little girl has grown up a bit and she wants little to do with her parents’ style. The chandelier and the rug are still there, but everything else has changed.
There’s a new bed, and she’s picked out hot pink bedding with guitars all over it. The walls have gone purpley-pink and a string of butterfly lights are strung up haphazardly. There are posters and pictures all over the place, including an awesomely cheeky Rock Out With Your Cock Out print. Her initials are hung over the dresser, which is at this point covered in CDs, lip gloss, and who knows what else. The rest of her stuff is shoved into pink plastic drawers. The room is a study in controlled chaos and girlie style.
The dresser will next make it’s way to this young girl’s first tiny apartment…
