Meredith Heron converted a basement safe into a cosy scrapbooking nook that celebrates family life.

Key Elements
Warm Wood An antique pine console table (used as a desk), matched with an iconic Panton chair offers an edgy tension.

Painted-Brick Walls Para Paints' Gallery White brightens the industrial brick, creating a clean backdrop to display art and collectibles.

Layered Textures To emphasize the scrapbooking theme, Heron has layered area rugs, upholstery and patterns.
