on trend: floating display cabinets / sfgirlbybay

i’ve always had a crush on these kinds of floating, wall-mounted shelves with glass doors, especially if it’s been DIY’d from a truly repurposed vintage piece — like a longtime favorite of mine just below — that ornate kitchen cabinet is just over the top cool. i love glass cabinets in general but when you find a vintage china or display cabinet of some kind and separate it from its base, perhaps give it a coat of paint (especially the inside shelves and back panel) and then hang it on the wall as a floating display unit, i just find it smashing. i look for these from time to time on chairish, or etsy and when i’ve been wandering the flea markets or shopping in france for super marché and there are new ones to be had, as well. one day i’ll find the perfect cabinet to bring home and make my own. they’ve long been quite popular in Scandinavia, but i’ve been seeing the trend more and more all over — and i love the idea of repurposing an old cabinet and giving it new life — living on our walls. here are some looks i love.

• photography credits and a note about credits — many of you were having trouble when i simply listed the photo credits in order at the bottom of the post. well now, if you simply click on the image it will take you to its original source. hopefully, a much easier way for you to source the image. in the case of my usual collages, i will list the links below as per usual.

you probably already know all about my affection for vintage paintings, especially portraits. i love that they’re a little bit kitschy, but not always as you can see from some of these very sophisticated spaces. but as much as i love them i don’t have quite enough wall space for them as i might like nowadays, so a while ago i added some of my old favorites along with love to the super marché artwork collection. some of you may recall rico suavé from way back when which sent home to a good friend.i sometimes miss these old friends of mine, so in honor of that, i’ve rounded up some delightful looks featuring vintage paintings — enjoy!
