Styling with CB2

Interiors

A few weeks ago I was just minding my own business when the alert on my phone went off, politely informing me I had a new email. I expected it to be a spam comment notification from the blog, but soon realized it was a message from one of my absolute favorite companies – CB2. They wanted to work together on a little styling project. Oh snap! Talk about a major freak out. After collecting myself, I quickly responded, “Absolutely!” and the rest is history! 

The plan was very simple. They would send me their colorful Go-cart Yellow Rolling Table, and I would style it in three ways. Pretty cool, right? Well, the day is finally here, and CB2 has shared my styling with the world – so I thought I would do the same here on IBC.

I basically used what I had in my house to style the piece in various ways. For all three examples, I considered style and functionality. Let’s take a look.

Style: This display is all about color. Some of my favorite design books in a rainbow palette gives an eclectic feel. The orchid adds drama and movement.

Function: An antique brass ashtray acts as a collect-all for jewelry. A unique lamp provides much needed lighting for late night reading.

Style: Clearly, I’m into gold these day. This pig bookend (also from CB2) has both style and whimsy! More books create a cooler color story and help to tie in the other accessories in the room.

Function: I kept the top fairly clutter free to allow for remote controls, snacks, and beverages. A vintage soda crate acts almost like a drawer for keeping things contained.

Style: An inexpensive bouquet of tulips brings life and color. Keeping similar items on their own shelves means organized interest.

Function: A simple tray on top keeps the liquor bottles looking neat, tidy, and purposeful. Perfectly sized-shelves are ideal for storing glasses and mixers.

I would say I successfully completed the challenge. I’m not exactly sure how I’m going to end up using the piece in my house. Right now it’s acting as a makeshift coffee table in my living room.

But, I’d love to know – which look did you like best?

A big thanks to the awesome folks at CB2 for the free cart in exchange for my styling expertise. I was not compensated or required to write this post, I was just over-the-moon excited to share this with all of you. Please note that the opinions, thoughts, and ideas listed above are my own.

    Hi Michael, I am new to your blog, so am late in responding, but I like the end table the best. The scale is perfect with the couch, and a pop of color is great in every room. I do have a question…where did you get that adorable bird in the night stand photos? I am. IN. LOVE! With that little bird! I’m enjoying getting to know your blog, and I really like your sense of design. I wouldn’t put a label on it either, except “FUN”!

    Bedside Table is my favorite. How can you not be happy in that room? I fell in love with your style on Pinterest. Keep up the great work!

    LOVE this! I MUST go get one of those carts ASAP! Can’t believe they are so reasonably priced.

    I think I love the end table the most, but the bar cart is pretty awesome. I’ve been looking for an old vintage one on Ebay but they all are so much! I love that you’ve used that, so it has the modern look but is so functional. You’ve inspired me to look at different options. Thanks!

    I love the cocktail cart- reminds me of Mad Men!

    I love all the looks – best part is you’ve really shown how versatile and fun this piece is. I think it would also work fabulous as a serving cart on the back patio for summer time entertaining!

    I love the tulips in the white pot, and I love this table. I wish I could get it, but I live in Australia. Will definitely be keeping my eye out for something similar, because this is genius! great styling!

    Super cute cart. I think I’m loving #3! It’s always nice to be able to roll your cocktails along with you 🙂 ha
