A HIgher High(boy)

October 22, 2010 § Leave a comment

Challenge: This bedroom needed more storage, and as so often happens, there was a challenge about where and how to achieve that. With doors, windows and closets on the other walls in this room, and a radiator sitting in the middle of the room’s bay, the one vacant wall, the options were limited. One option was to move the radiator to underneath the window. That, thought, would make having a nightstand, or night-chair, as it is, a bit tight.

Solution: We found a great antique highboy, with great traditional detailing to match the millwork in the home, and we mounted the highboy on the wall over the radiator, and paint all three, the cabinet, heater and wall, the same color, affectively making this traditional piece feel much more modern.
