Last month, after much contemplating (and saving), we finally got our Dining room a very worthy China cabinet.

It was no easy task choosing and finding the right one. After all, we wanted a piece that would suit our tastes (which usually changes every so often...) and would be versatile enough for any decor and last us for years to come.

In choosing a China Cabinet there were a couple of inspirational cabinets I saw on Pinterest

There are the classics...

Classic with a zing

 The Cabinets for the modernists...

Sparsely beautiful

For the Mid-Century lover...

Timeless simplicity

And for the decor fashionista...

Makes me think this is owned by Kate Spade - just gorgeous

And finally, our personal choice, here she is...

Isn't she a beaut?

We got it from Restoration Hardware. And knowing that store, the price was steep, BUT, thinking about this as long-term furniture, an investment really and a future heirloom perhaps, I think it's worth every penny. :-)

It's 91 inches tall - massively heavy because its made of solid oak with a weathered oak drifted finish. It's a cabinet that could go with any decor and style because it is both "substantially classic organic" (Hmm, a new term I think, I just made up).

Inside it houses all my knick knacks collected thru the years from different sales - and knowing me, most of them are from flea, thrift or yard!

Remember how I told you how obsessed I am with Jonathan Adler- partial proof here

Extra stuff - sorry, not yet that organized

Here she is again in all her "nakedness"

I am obsessed with these handles
They are full-length cremone casement locks in blackened brass!

She still needs one more upgrade - lighting. But that will be for another time, another post. For now, we are happy the way she is. 

Happy Decorating!
