Lovely on the inside

Align Center
Getting quite excited to trying some fun DIY projects to decorate our new place. One I've been particularly looking forward to is adding a fun finish to the interior doors of a plain dresser. I've been thinking about using some beautiful Japanese paper in either a metallic finish or perhaps a fun, bright colour (remember the bright pink interior of Katie Lee Joel's black bar? See it again here.)

I've been quite inspired by this beautiful piece. The doors of this simple Ikea cabinet are lined in gold fabric from Missoni Home - such a delightful surprise. I love how the effect is echoed in the gold interior of the Philippe Starck lamp. A great way to have a bit of fun with a bold finish or pattern you may not be brave enough to commit to in a more visible area.

I love this idea - especially since I'm mad for gold right now. It takes an Ikea piece to a whole new level. :)

I absolutely can't get enough gold and white this season.

And, thank you for sharing such an excellent idea. What I like about it is, if you screw it up, you just kep those doors shut... :p
