We have a secretary that was inherited from my grandma. Although we love it, it's been a challenge figuring out how to best fit it into our decor and put it to use on a daily basis. On Windsor Smith's site, we found some gorgeous examples of secretaries and armoires, along with a few tips on how to make the most of them at home...
Photographs of the Brittany Secretary show it styled as a bar, linen closet, and home office. The slightly wider Colony Breakfast Armoire conceals a flat-screen television behind its mercury glass doors. Although the Windsor Smith pieces are drool-worthy, they're also in the high-end category of cost. For an affordable alternative, keep an eye on our craigslist Scavenger column and check out Eddie Ross' stylish secretary makeover for some before-and-after inspiration.
