Styling White Cabinets | 3 Themes

6/29/2017



For the past year or so I've been craving a complete change in my home. After it became obvious that I spend more hours browsing Pinterest for furniture than I do for makeup, I've decided that I'm finally ready to tackle that daunting (but oh, so exciting!) task of upping my interiors game. I've started with switching a couple of white walls for pastels and switching classic wood/ brown furniture pieces for white pieces. Since my bedroom has a lot of warm tones, I've decided to go for a gentle accent wall. My husband has custom made this peachy hue so that it isn't too orange and is very much a pastel beauty. 

Contrast from the surrounding white walls made it clear white goes so well with peach and a statement white cabinet was clearly what we needed. And indeed, the fabulous Landwood cabinet was exactly what we needed! You'd think styling cabinets and shelves is easy and it isn't hard if you put your heart to it but it definitely has more impact on a room than you'd think. Here are my top 3 themes for jazzing up a white cabinet.

Modern -  I've found a pair of lovely leafy prints which fit perfectly in our thin black frames. Hanging them off grid gave a bit of structure - I prefer it to linear positioning on walls. Books are perfect for styling surfaces as you can stack your trinkets on top of them and even choose them by their covers so that they fit with your color scheme. Also, I've added a fresh but unexpected pop of pink with roses (in a box, freshly cut or in a used up perfume bottle - it's up to you).

Beachy - we've had these frameless beachy prints for years but it's only now that they make sense hanged on a peach wall and over a white cabinet. I'm big on having pretty perfume bottles as props so a few shells scattered around perfumes, sand-filled hourglass and a neutral colored lamp resembling pebbles were completed with a vase of fresh flowers

Traditional - this is an ideal option for you if you have some local art in your possession or even family heritage. These two paintings were a gift from the parents and I finally feel happy with how our antique pieces are incorporated and paired with the rest of our home decor. Since copper pieces are statement on their own and they hold such value, I've complimented their strong beauty with a linen cover in a neutral hue, some soft white flowers, a few lifestyle books and a white scented candle. 

Are you all about the pretty furniture picks?

  • Iako je i ranije bilo naznaka, pokazalo se da je u mom slučaju 2017. - godina promjene interijera. Nakon što je postalo jasno da provodim više vremena na Pinterestu tražeći inspiraciju glede uređenja doma nego što to radim kada je šminka u pitanju, bila sam spremna da se napokon posvetim zahtjevnom ali i izuzetno zanimljivom projektu promjene i prilagodbe svog postojećeg životnog prostora interijeru iz snova. Prvi koraci su bili razbijanje monotonije bijelih zidova sa pastelnim tonovima. Potom sam komade namještaja u boji drveta zamijenila sa bijelim komadima. Spavaća soba je početna tačka ovog projekta a pošto u njoj preovladavaju topli tonovi, nježna pastelna nijansa breskve je obojila jedan zid i učinila ga platnom za naredne korake.
  • Kontrast okolnih bijelih zidova spram pastelnog nam je ukazao da kombinacija breskve i bijele boje odlično funkcioniše. Postalo je očigledno da bi zid u boji upotpunio bijeli komad namještaja - i zaista, fenomenalna Landwood komoda se uklopila u našu viziju savršeno! Pomislili bi da je stilizovanje komode lagan posao, što i jeste ako se stvarno srcem unesete, ali nije za potcijeniti efekat koji dobro stilizovan lijep komad namještaja može da ima na cjelokupni izgled prostorije. Ako vam nedostaje inspiracije, potrudila sam se da prezentujem meni najdraža 3 stila kojima sam vjerna kada je stilizovanje komoda i polica u pitanju.
  • Moderna tematika - pronašla sam divan par printova koji su se krasno uklopili u tanke crne okvire. Okačili smo ih tako da nisu u ravnoj liniji - mislim da smo na taj način razbili iluziju savršenih linija i dali sebi krila za dalje eksperimentiranje. Knjige su sjajne za stilizovanje površina jer na njih uvijek možete poredati vama drage sitnice i poigrati se sa dimenzijama. Ako želite ići korak dalje, odaberite knjige sa koricama koje će se uklopiti u koloritnu šemu koju preferirate. Ubacila sam i malo roze boje uz pomoć ruža (u kutiji, svježe ubrane ili izložene u praznim bočicama parfema - odabir je na vama).
  • Ljetna tematika - printove školjki na plaži imamo već godinama ali nisam uspjevala da ih adekvatno uklopim sa interijerom. Dobile su smisao tek kada je zid postao pastelno breskvast a oni okačeni iznad čisto bijele Landwood komode. Pri stilizovanju namještaja, moram priznati da se često oslanjam na lijepe parfemske bočice. Par školjki razbacanih oko odabranih parfema, pješčani sat i stolna lampa neutralnih boja koja podsjeća na oblutke su upotpunjeni svježim cvijećem.
  • Tradicionalna tematika - ovo je opcija za vas ako u posjedu već imate neke starine, možda umjetnička djela domaćih autora, autentične slike i rukotovorine. Nama su poslužile dvije slike koje su bile poklon od roditelja a posebno sam zadovoljna kako su se starine poput ibrika i demirlija tako vješto uklopile sa namještajem. Pošto su bakarne starine same po sebi atraktivne, komplimentirala sam njihovu snažnu ljepotu sa lanenim prekrivačem boje pijeska, sitnim bijelim cvijećem, par tanjih knjiga i bijelom mirisnom svijećom.
  • Recite mi, da li i vi volite uređenje doma i koliko se tome posvećujete?

  1. Hey great job! I love your style! My house is very Scandi-looking, as the half Norwegian in me won over my other half Portuguese side. But one day I'd love to change it up to a more beach-y vibe... probably when I move out of London and to somewhere warmer! Scandi-minimalism works quite well in rainy London ;-) XO Miss Portmanteau

    1. Yup, I understand what you're saying - beachy theme can work as long as the weather backs it up! In Sarajevo, it really is only summer-appropriate.
      Here's to secretly wishing to relocate somewhere permanently warmer, eh? :D

  4. I cannot decide between modern and traditional style, I like both of them the same. The idea of pink roses in a bottle of perfume is very interesting, I think I'm going to use it in my home. Very very beautiful photos!

    1. I have picked up the hygge vibe from inspo online (Pinterest,IG etc.) but I wasn't too informed about it - it is, however, awesome if those details rubbed off because that is a style I'd love to learn more about.
      In fact, I've picked up a book to learn more about hygge :D
      Will do if you will have me over! ;)
