Sometimes the top of our mid century credenza, naked of any arrangements, stares back at us, mocking our inability to choose a direction. So we started looking for inspiration to help narrow things down. We love the minimal look of the display above from the Zaitz House in Palm Springs. But never happy to settle on the first thing we find, we've rounded up our favorite and best credenza top displays after the jump. Our favorite about most of these is that we'd be able to assemble them with what we already have in the house (ok, maybe not some of the paintings, but you get the idea) just being selective about what and how we put it all together.
Trina Turk's mid century set up with cloisonné jars and lamp from Lawson-Fenning.
Art Deco Style> with Lempicka Paintings and an old fashioned telephone.
Not quite a credenza but we love the idea of displaying collections, especially of different sized globes (or vases, or lamps, etc).
From Shauna's More Dash than Cash we're reminded that a bar is always useful ( maybe not in the bedroom, but...)
Giant white log, giant candles and a painting. We're into it.
Kim has 5 Cats gets 2 pictures because we were so into how different displays can be. We love that she painted a stripe of teal to 'anchor the white credenza and the series of white vases on it. We also love that she showed off her great camera collection in front of some pretty wicked paintings without it all looking disorganized.
Courtesy of Victoria we fell in love with this streamlined approach, but the vintage mirror makes it all so welcoming and home-y.
And finally, how we could forget our very own Jonathan and his original Fall Colors Contest Entry. Pops of white, check. Foo dogs, check. Mid Century lamp, check. Great looking book collection, check. Consider us inspired.
