This fall season, we’re turning our attention to wood storage cabinets, which have many associations with harvest, homemaking, and back-to-school preparations. And we thought we’d focus on the colors of fall — browns, reds, and yellows, with some vivid sky blues to set them off.
Let’s start with the EcoChic Forget Me Knot Cabinet, featured above, which has natural wood framing in a warm mid-brown against green, blue, and yellow layers of painted fishing boat wood. We can see this cabinet in a family room, stuffed with board games and photo albums, or in a bedroom with wool sweaters and flannel bed linens.

This vintage card catalog is a delightful addition to a sewing or craft room. The highlighted wood grain works so well with antiqued brass fittings. We love how they’ve styled it with a rainbow of ribbons and art books.
We’re highlighting this beautiful cabinet below because its design reminds us of the Forget Me Knot, with sturdy lines and black hardware. The dark knots and whorls contrast with the lighter gold tone of the wood, which is accentuated with the yellow-spined books above. The weathered tree stump in the corner holding an evergreen tree is a lovely nod to the material origins of these pieces.

The worn red finish on this old cabinet lends a beautiful relaxed patina to an otherwise regal design. The ornate handles are echoed in the picture frame and the legged bowl above. We imagine these drawers holding candlesticks, embroidered linens, and silverware for family dinners.
Let’s finish with a sunny yellow display cabinet holding a quirky collection of curios — like having an October beech tree in the room all year round. The bright color stands out against the white panelled wall and dark flooring.
Not everyone gets to enjoy the bright fall colors outdoors, but anyone can bring them inside with a gorgeous painted cabinet. Whether you’re storing dry goods for baking, fluffy cotton towels, or a trove of keepsakes, a wood storage cabinet will give them a fitting home.
