L'orange: the creamsicle dresser

The creamsicle dresser actually came out quite nice, bubbly paint notwithstanding.

I am glad I didn't go with the darker orange, this is a pretty intense orange as it is.

I've ordered the rug for her room, I have all the curtains, I'm looking for art, and I need to figure out how what color to dye the rocker.  And oh yeah, move to the next place.  Progress!

Opinion poll: would you put pretty knobs or pulls on a Malm dresser, or is it just too modern to do that?  I have seen plenty of mod, plain drawer pulls on the Malm, but not too many pretty pulls like this:

(Ten of these pulls, btw, would cost more than the dresser itself.)  

I see on Apartment Therapy someone put some fancy pulls on the long Malm dresser.  Hmm.


  1. the fancy pulls look nice, and i like the orange :)

  2. Yes, I think good pulls can upgrade an IKEA piece so nicely.

  3. I love the orange! And I am always in favor of fancy pulls.

  4. I agree with those above. I love the color. It really turned out great. I think the pretty pulls will soften up the modern lines of the dresser.

  5. Ooh, me likey the orange / aqua color combo in that room! And those pulls are fabulous & look like they'd be a good balancing out for that modern dresser.
