This library index cabinet in eight-yearold Ben Vogel’s bedroom mainly serves as storage space for his shoes and socks, says his mom San-marié. “But this is also where he hides all his little treasures,” she adds. “I often find a shiny stone, an interesting leaf, a sweet or a Lego hero in there.” San-marié painted the formerly drab and battered cabinet red when Ben was an infant. “Together with the black-and-white stripes, this colour works well in a boy’s room,” she says.
Psst! Cut out paint sample cards and paste them inside the metal frames on the outside of the drawers to add some contrast – then write on each one with a koki pen to indicate what’s inside. >>
