While exploring the three floors of The Robin’s Nest, there it was in all its glory, a pink dresser. How awesome was it to discover a vintage dresser that was lovingly reinvented with a daring splash of color? One must wonder, was the creator inspired by the arrival of summer. All we must do is look outside and take in what Mother Nature has delivered in vast flower beds around the city.
I immediately thought the piece would be a welcomed addition to most any young girl’s bedroom. How cute (and fun) would it be to decorate using a mixture of vintage and modern items.
But what about the adult who just plain loves color? How would they repurpose a hot pink dresser? I could personally see it in an entryway. Stage it like you would a natural wood finished piece, just ignore the pink. Add your favorite items and step back. It’s a great way to greet guests. A happy color invokes a happy heart.
The pink dresser is topped with the necessities of a young resident. A lamp with a low wattage bulb is always welcome. The handmade snuggle-bunny rests against the lamp waiting for the owner’s bed time. At the opposite end of the dresser is a whimsical wire birdcage that serves as a hair bow holder. The vintage child’s wagon could organize the toys. A vintage chair, highlighted with silver paint and recovered with a pink fuzzy fabric gives it a modern feel and is perfect for cozy story time. Lastly, the modern wall art is oversized, colorful and bold.
Stepping inside the door you’re greeted by a bright pink dresser. Bring some outdoors in with a floral in a tall modern vase. A vintage ceramic vessel introduces a traditional look along with the antique lamps. Trending is the deer silhouette and pillow for a masculine touch. The pair of white wooden shutters brings the eye up and flanks the modern handcrafted deer art. Lastly, the vintage chair with fresh white paint and recovered in a warm buttery fabric (perhaps vintage) offers a comfortable resting spot. It’s modern, vintage and diverse in color.
Big thanks to our friends at The Robin’s Nest (formerly The Pink Daisy). The pink dresser was the creation of Angie Kaminski. Rockstar Glam House painted and reupholstered the pink fuzzy chair. The yellow chair showcased was painted and reupholstered by 72:4 Design.
