From sophisticated large homes to stylish studio apartments, Bek proves that her talented design eye knows no bounds. We’re excited to share a bit of Bek’s wisdom with you as she styles The Disappearing Console 3 different ways!
When designing for clients or myself I opt for incorporating versatile furniture, pieces that can serve multiple purposes, whenever possible. This route affords you the option to switch up your spaces as your tastes change.
This lovely lucite console is the perfect example of a piece with range. As soon as I saw it I imagined the endless ways in which I could use it in our new Atlanta apartment. Here are my three takes on composing this console:
An Elegant & Easy Entry
To create an entry with some pop, paint a focal wall a punchy hue. Here, Benjamin Moore’s Key Largo green helps highlight the silhouette of the console. With the addition of some seagrass baskets, clutter is contained.
Beautifully Balanced Buffet
The open shelves are perfect for putting your dinnerware on display. Simple styling on the top shelf can be removed for entertaining with ease.
Best Bar Cart
The length of this console makes it a perfect celebration station. A set of drink dispensers allows everyone to help themselves. This console is relatively lightweight so you can move it easily, I can’t wait to use it as an impromptu bar cart for alfresco entertaining!
I could also envision this console serving as a media stand or sofa table – it really is versatile! Next time you are in the need for new piece, I hope these looks will inspire you to look for one with possibilities!
