well, here we are — we’ve landed in chilly january and it’s time to get warm and cozy. in my humble opinion radiators can get a bum rap. but i love the charm of an old radiator — i happen to like layers of white paint applied over the years and the way it cracks from the heat. radiators are most welcome right now, but come spring, some just don’t find any use for the poor old radiator. but when not warming us up, radiators are an ideal spot to stack books, vintage treasures, and an ideal spot to build a shelf to display your favorite objects d’art. so embrace the good old radiator — i’m hoping to inspire you into a little radiator love today — let them warm your hearts and not just your homes.

  1. These are so charming! I painted most of the radiators in my apt white which makes such a huge difference, they blend seamlessly into the space. I have one however that is surrounded by dark wood millwork, it’s still silver, I have no idea what to do with it! Paint it black I suppose?

  2. love this post! wistful for my old apt. in center city philly with its wonderfully ramshackle radiators and many other non-perfect characteristics. happy 2016 victoria!
