An upholstered headboard with two rows of nailhead trim is custom-built to fit the space, and reading lights above are a practical addition. Dinosaur-printed bedding and a pair of acid green pillows bring punch and kid-friendly flair.

Not only is this space a passageway, but it’s also a gateway to the family home’s past. Inside the frame is a photograph of the butler’s pantry as it originally stood decades ago, taken by the home’s previous owner. The pantry has stood the test of time. Matching the case-good to the trim color, with a fresh coat of white paint was a great way to update it without ruining structural integrity.

She also added industrial pendant lights, an industrial style sink and rustic industrial barstools to complete the look.
