A tall, antique cabinet adds height to the space and keeps entertaining essentials at the ready.
Designers added pieces of vintage furniture and repurposed them for use in this elegant little girl's room. This antique China cabinet was upcycled into a functional, sophisticated dresser with shelving for display and plenty of space for storage.
Entering from the dining room, custom pocket doors in a fretted work pattern frame the kitchen. An antique Japanese mizuya chest is separated by an iridescent gray backsplash, which adds depth and a touch of glamor to the space.
This traditional china cabinet serves as the perfect display area for vintage china, glass ware, and silver serving ware. The floral and aviary patterned wall design add visual interest while the mounted pheasants sitting atop provide a unique conversation starter. The wall treatment may look like wallpaper, but it's actually paper-backed fabric. Designer Sarah Richardson used this centuries-old process to achieve a sophisticated look in her dining room. The process of backing fabric with paper is known as lamination or paper backing and costs about $10 per yard. Check with local wallpaper or fabric stores for availability.
A distressed finish over this country china cabinet stands out agains the polished hardwood floor and bright white wall paint. The blue color of the trim peaks through the distress mark to frame the piece.

The large dining table was custom created by furniture designer Clint Harp. Hardwood floor and wood furniture compliments the country ranch style of the home. A dramatic chandelier features a beaded texture and pulls out the lighter tone of the table coloring. A light shade of blue on the walls adds subtle color without overpowering the room.

Rustic wood and stainless steel make the feel of this open plan kitchen warm and approachable. Instead of upper cabinets, a large glass-front china cabinet houses—and shows off—dishes and serving ware.
