Here's a dreamy little number to ease the ache that is Monday. The drab, cabinet-free walls, the battered floor...and the gold-washed drawers. A calculated incongruity, of course, and one that might raise some socio-political hackles, but I look at it as a simple experiment in finishes and materials. It's another example of green-meets-glitter, a color combo that I see as successful, but with a bit of texture thrown into the mix. 'Tenement chic', anyone?
