The best home upgrades are the ones you didn’t even know you needed. While working on a whole house remodel, Nathan Taylor, owner and principal designer at Obelisk Home, turned a formerly undefined space into statement-making built-in china cabinet perfect for both display and storage. “It was in a hallway actually,” says Taylor of the space, “but you see it from the living room, the entryway and the kitchen.” Rather than recreating the cabinets from the kitchen, Taylor imagined a large furniture piece with tons of storage that would define the space and give it purpose.
According to Taylor, the homeowners enjoy entertaining and have many relatives that live locally. Therefore, their home often becomes the go-to spot for holiday sand celebrations.
