CS: Did you add a fabric treatment to the linen cabinet in the corner? Tell me more about this piece as storage and a decorative object.
KS: The storage cabinet I got off HauteLook and I loved the lines. But Arlae needed a cabinet to store things not display items, so I chose a coordinating fabric for the room and used a staple gun to line the glass on the inside and instantly created a ton of closed storage for her. I also think it's such a versatile piece because if at a later date she moves and has room now to display she can easily take out the fabric altogether or if she goes with a new style it can easily be replaced with the fabric and then she'd have a totally new look.
I love the idea of buying a new piece but adding your own personality to it — people often think of that for old vintage pieces but often shy away from it with a brand-new piece. But I think adding that special element really adds so much to the story of your home.
