Drawers are fantastic and versatile storage pieces to add to your home. You can style them into your bedroom to store clothes in, add them to your kid’s playroom to use as an entertainment unit or place one in your living area to store crockery, DVD’s , blankets and general household items.
Vanessa Nouwens is a New Zealand based interior stylist who works regularly with some of New Zealand’s largest publications including Your Home and Garden magazine
. Vanessa has styled a set of Brooklyn Drawers
to show you how they can be used as either a sideboard, a chest of drawers or an entertainment unit.
Vanessa shows you how you can easily transform your Brooklyn Drawers and add interest to your room by decorating the top of the drawers with a lamp, a collection of photo frames, decorative trinkets and a large eye catching print.
If you are using your Brooklyn Drawers as an entertainment unit, Vanessa suggests adding a beautiful plant and a statement print to liven up the space and draw attention away from the TV when it is not turned on. The drawers are great for hiding your collection of DVD’s, magazines and spare blankets which help to keep your room looking tidy.
If you have an open plan living room or dining area, using a set of Brooklyn Drawers as a sideboard can add a third element to the room and can complement your dining table. If you plan to use a set of Brooklyn Drawers as a sideboard in your living room, Vanessa suggests keeping the styling simple and minimalistic. Add a lamp for mood lighting along with a few decorative pieces and magazines for interest.
