Dining Room Built-ins Dressed Up for the Holidays

Most of you know that I love built-ins used around the home to add style and storage. This dining room is one of my all-time favorites because the cabinets look like they are original to this Victorian home. Some of the secrets to designing a built-in with a period feel are:

  1. The layered top molding is more than 7 ½” tall and has enough detail to be appropriate for an older home.
  2. Waypoint’s Fincastle Glass in all the wall cabinets has real zinc caming and an intricate and elegant pattern.
  3. The stacked wall cabinets add a charming look for the period home.
  4. Crema Marfil marble is used as countertop for the cabinets adding an old-fashioned look.
  5. A furniture toe kick completes the look.

I love that we were able to share this beautiful built-in with a holiday party look because it gives me the opportunity to wish all my readers the very best of the holiday season.
