There’s a huge opportunity to create a “moment” with sideboards or credenzas. They are like the frames of furniture, calling attention to whatever lives directly above. Since they are usually long, there’s a lot of wall space to cover up there, but here are some great ideas for making that space noteworthy.
Above, a long and low floating credenza in Charoonkit Thahong’s loft is dominated by two side-by-side groupings: one large collection of white vases and a series of framed artwork.
A huge piece of typographic art from Honeymoon Hotel on Etsy makes a dramatic statement. Bonus points for the Dirty Dancing reference.
This diagonal art configuration above designer Mario Ruiz’s Punt sideboard is an interesting take on a gallery wall.
Two shelves above Claire Thomas' credenza mimic the lines of the furniture and draw your eye upward to the ceiling.
Huge spindly flowering branches in a simple white vase are a nice contrast to the rectangular sideboard from House Updated.
Mandi of Vintage Revivals took a Kenneth Noland painting as inspiration for a custom mural that becomes the focus of her sister-in-law’s bedroom.
Talk about drama. This hugely oversized mirror dwarfs the credenza in Joe Trohman's home, but it totally somehow works.
