Y’all should wait till subsequent week to see the mural wall cupboards as a result of I obtained all of them painted and clear coated, however I didn’t need to danger placing the doorways and drawer fronts on too quickly. I’d relatively give the clear coat a few days to dry earlier than messing with them. And I do know a few of you might have plenty of questions concerning the portray course of, merchandise used, and many others. I’ll share all of that subsequent week.
Within the meantime, I can’t cease excited about these cupboards simply contained in the door from the breakfast room. As I’ve already shared, I hesitate to color them pink and deal with them similar to the opposite two sections of cupboards within the room.
Should you’re new round right here, and haven’t had the possibility to get caught up on my studio mission, these are the 2 areas of cupboards I’m speaking about that will likely be pink. First, there’s the mural wall that can have 20-feet of decrease cupboards painted pink.
And right here’s the a peek on the pink.
The second space of cupboards that would be the identical pink is that this nook that I name the workplace space of the studio.
I really like the concept of these two areas of cupboards matching in shade and magnificence. However on the subject of this third space of cupboards simply contained in the studio door, I simply can’t fairly get on board with these matching in shade and magnificence. I feel it might be overkill.
Clearly, I’m nonetheless engaged on placing that part collectively. 🙂 My authentic plan had been to make them look similar to the remaining. You possibly can see that I put the identical functional-but-not-pretty ft on these that I made for the opposite sections as a result of I deliberate to make this part look built-in similar to the others, that means that these utilitarian ft could be coated with baseboard-type trim.
However now I’m considering that as a substitute of creating them look built-in, I ought to make them appear to be a totally separate piece of furnishings, similar to I did with the cupboard within the water closet space of our toilet.
Should you adopted the grasp toilet mission, you would possibly keep in mind that I had initially deliberate so as to add built-in cupboards to that space, however I ended up making this cupboard as a separate piece of furnishings as a substitute. And I’m so glad I did! I feel having this cupboard as a separate piece of furnishings as a substitute of built-in cupboards appears a lot extra fascinating.
So I feel that’s the path I’ll head with this part of cupboards within the studio. I’ll have to start out by eradicating the utilitarian ft and including some fairly furnishings ft.
After which I would like to maneuver it away from the facet wall and heart it on the wall like I might any piece of furnishings that I put there.
These are the simple choices. The tougher choice is what on the planet I’m going to do with the remainder of it. 😀 I’ve spent a while on Pinterest looking for concepts that I feel would coordinate with my pink cupboards with gold accents, and would additionally look good from the principle areas of the home since it is going to be seen when the studio door is open. Listed here are a number of that caught my eye.
I really like the look of the doorways (not the legs, simply the doorways) on this Ehren Rattan Sideboard from All Modern (affiliate hyperlink).
I like that the rattan has white behind it to maintain it mild, and the colour of the rattan appears so good with the gold accents. It wants door pulls, although.
Subsequent up is that this Scale Pattern Sideboard (affiliate hyperlink) from Homary.
I really like the design on the doorways, however I don’t know what shade would work. I nearly assume it must be varied shades of white with the gold scale design over it. And since my cupboard will likely be a lot bigger than this one, I might in all probability solely use the design inside a framed space of every door relatively than doing it on your entire door. In any case, I’ll have 12 full overlay doorways on my cupboard.
This subsequent one is the proper instance of having the ability to discover inspiration even in issues I don’t essentially like. 😀 I don’t actually just like the look of this geometric credenza from Society 6 (affiliate hyperlink), however I do like the concept of doing a geometrical shade block design and including in some metallic gold.
However I might use a lot softer colours to coordinate with the room. This black, white and gold design appears very harsh for my style. So that you’ll simply need to think about a shade block design performed with delicate, fairly colours pulled from the floral mural. Really, there are a ton of painted designs I got here throughout that might work. All the things from stripes to small geometric designs, and nearly every little thing in between. In terms of painted designs, the choices are limitless.
One other thought is to do a textural design much like this small accent cabinet from Hulala Home.
And I already know the way I might recreate that look. It will be a really enjoyable mission! But it surely may additionally get fairly costly.
And at last, I might do a easy metallic design like this geometric gold pattern credenza from Society 6 (affiliate hyperlink).
I don’t significantly like that particular design. It appears too busy to me. And if I did one thing like this, it might be gold on white, so it might have a softer and extra delicate look. However I do like the concept of a easy metallic design.
So at this level, I don’t know which path I’ll go. In fact, something with paint and a little bit trim would essentially the most economical. Something that entails a number of trim to create a design on the doorways may very well be fairly costly with such a big cupboard and 12 doorways. However I need to do one thing fairly, one thing fascinating, and one thing that can coordinate with the studio and the principle areas of the home.
