DKBirdseed from Camano Island writes: "Brini, How about a few tips on how best to display china and/ or crystal in a glass fronted cabinet.Mine looks so boring."

Making the most of your china cabinet is easy when you focus less on the repetition of your dishes and more on the charm and style of your serving pieces and smaller sets. Tureens, vases and other accent pieces will draw the eye more artfully than a row of plates or stand of stemware. Add unconventional items like the yarn I used in mine and you have an attention grabbing display that will start conversations and serve as a focal point to your room.

You can also use china cabinets in rooms other than the dining room to organize everything from food stuffs in the kitchen to office supplies in the den to towels and toiletries in the bathroom if space permits.

Taking advantage of the display possibilities of a china cabinet is a fun way to create visual interest in a room. Why not try it?

Why didn't you think of that?



Described as part Donna Reed, part Mary Tyler Moore, Maxwell makes kitsch feel classy through her unparalleled personal flair for home design, entertaining and savvy household tips. Inspired by a divine thrift shop purchase of 1950's nesting bowls, she first began sharing her vintage/classic know-how with other Manhattanites in 1998 through her self-titled cable access television show. With an emphasis on uncompromising fabulousness, Brini quickly garnered a devoted fan base and established herself as the go-to-girl on vintage fashion and mid-century modern treasures. After five years on the local airwaves her show was picked up by the Style Network. The subsequent series has been called a delightful success and has attracted a diverse audience thorough its national platform.

The Brini Maxwell Show

The pilot for the original show was produced in 1996. The show debuted on Manhattan Neighborhood Network on January 1, 1998, and aired for 5 years featuring tips, recipes, entertaining ideas, craft projects, home renovation and interior design schemes. It was produced by Sander's production company V.R.U.S.P. Inc. and directed by Sander's mother, Mary Jane Wells.

In 2001 Sander was contacted by Amy Briamonte, east coast director of development for west coast based Termite Art Productions (now Creative Differences Productions). Briamonte and Sander developed a pitch for the show for the Bravo network and received an order for a pilot. The pilot was produced in the summer of 2002 for a show titled Charming, Needs Work. The premise for the show was Maxwell lived in an apartment that she redecorated every week. After Bravo passed on the show Briamonte, Sander and Termite Art pitched it to Stephen Schwartz and Heather Moran, newly named VP's of programming for the Style network. The pitch resulted in an order for a 13-episode season.

The first season of The Brini Maxwell Show for the Style network was taped in the summer of 2003 with studio production taking place on the main stage at Unitel Studios on west 57th St. in New York City. Location shoots for the season were taped over a period of 6 months in New York City, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
