There's a new dresser in town! And I painted it green; surprise, surprise. I'm on a green kick, no shame here, and this mid-century highboy had the perfect size and details to pull it off in high gloss!
In case you missed it, these knobs are from the Southwestern dresser I did a few weeks ago and they lost in votes to the cowhide pulls I did for the same piece! That dresser, and it's beautiful cowhide pulls, are now in a sweet expectant couple's western themed nursery and waiting on a new little one to arrive! I love that the cowhide pulls were perfect for that piece just as these hexagon knobs turned out to be perfect for this piece.
Let's talk about styling
For whatever reason, I find it easier to style a vignette on a longer, lower piece with more surface space than a taller piece like this. Because of it's height my first instinct is to keep the items on top on the shorter side, so the piece as a whole doesn't look taller. But who says tall ladies can't wear heels. I mean, right?!? Adding height to the top gives the piece balance!
So here's a really quick and easy to remember formula I, (poorly), sketched to show how I like to style a highboy piece such as this green beauty:
This is totally just one example of how to style pieces of comparable size, and once you get more comfortable you can play with the formula, move things around and swap things out! But a good place to start is Lamp, Large art, Tall sculptural piece, and a Stack of books topped with a unique object.
Mr. Rex was in SUCH a fowl mood on shooting day! But, he made good on his promise not to utter a sound or move a muscle.
