Displaying China as Wall Art –
In my twenties, I had to come up with some ingenious decorating ideas as I branched off on my own. Like most, I was on a minimalist budget just barely getting by and the choice between an awesome lamp or groceries for the week arose more often than I care to remember. Accessorizing my home was always low on the priorities, but ingenuity taught me several great lessons.
So what’s the most valuable design trick I came away from that experience with? It was the notion of taking what you have & using it to the best possible advantage. Not a new idea, but one that doesn’t get used enough. Taking advantage of the vast array of implements your kitchen has to offer is a great place to start. From the everyday china & serving pieces to the silver & crystal, it’s all fair game. I mean, really, how often do you use most of that stuff? And placing it in a prominent place as part of your styling is an uber practical way to store it!

Over the top, yes? I like!
Oooh! Isn’t this house to die for? Sorry, I digress… darned webternet.
Want to create a cohesive design for your home but are a little short on cash flow? What better way to do so than to place your oft’ unused serving pieces on the wall – things such as the bread & butter plates or saucers, the silver platter or even your flatware. The possibilities really are endless. Best of all, it’s a design trend that can grow as your budget grows.
