Credenza Perfection

I am falling in love with credenzas, more and more everyday. My MCM addiction led me to them and now I can not stop pursuing them. I actually just purchased my very own and have it resting under our huge tv in the living room. (This has helped with the problem with the gigantic tv as the old stand was metal and glass which was too cold and lifeless, especialy paired with that tv. The warmth and character of the vintage wooden credenza has lended major improvements to the space.)

I love them natural, painted, or laquered. Preferably vintage, but some of the  newer ones Ive spotted at "the 'Land" are pretty sweet too. I think they work well in various spaces. They add weight and substance to interiors while providing storage and anchoring wall art, mirrors, and accessories.

Here are some of my faves Ive been spying...sources to come!

Dying for Dark Walls:

Maybe it was the years of living in white walled apartments during my college years, but now that I have my own house... all I want to do is PAINT! I love dynamic spaces and I feel that, as scary as it can be, dark walls can add so much intrigue with the contrast and depth it provides. It is a heavier look but it is also a cozier look.

While white can add contrast too, I feel that there is something about dark walls that brings a sense of wonder and an unexpected dramatic flair.


And adding a geometric print with satin on flat? OMG! Im drooling.

I have a few rooms dolled up in a warm dark gray already {which I LOVE}. My husband was hesitant at first, but after he saw the finished product... he couldn't stop complimenting the look. {He has now learned not to question my design ideas ;) }

I mean come on, how fabulous are these spaces?!

I really want to go deep blue or navy in my living room. 

Color completes a space in my book.
