The gorgeous, white, chinoiserie cabinet, above (photo by Donna Griffith), featured on the January 2013 cover of Canada’s Style at Home wasn’t always white and didn’t always belong to Bijou and Boheme blogger Christine Dovey. As the Style at Home article notes, the cabinet was a Craigslist find, which is double plus true. I found it on Craigslist in its original coral pink, below, which did not feel especially feminine in the brick-red spare room decorated by my former partner and I. But after a move downtown we didn’t have space for it and so back to Craigslist the cabinet went and that’s where Christine found it.
I am thrilled to see that the piece was so lovingly transformed. It was/is a stunning cabinet with beautiful fretwork and an airy countenance. Digging into my archives to find the pic below was like a trip down decor memory lane. Thanks Christine and congrats on having your beautiful home featured in the magazine!
