Browsing through the photos of Janelle Gaw’s home featured on The Everygirl I was reminded how much I love the use of everyday items as art or incorporated into the decor of a room somehow.
Having favorite and often used items whether it’s clothing, accessories, coffee mugs, or beach towels on display is wonderful for so many reasons -
- Easy access – no digging through drawers or overstuffed closets.
- Simple beauty – when truly featured, rather than simply left out they can really add to the look of a room, and let you enjoy these treasured items more than having them packed away most of the time.
- Save money! You save both on artwork or other decorative items and on storage space and products.
Here are the examples I loved from Gaw’s space:
I can just imagine grabbing one of those great hats off the wall and heading out to the beach, and the pops of color from the functional items all around the sewing desk make it a beautiful space.
Do you have any examples from your home? Anything special you’d love to bring out of hiding and put on display?
