We are turning my former walk-in-closet into a nursery. (More on that soon…) but meanwhile, I’m folding up a lot of clothes that used to be hanging–and now I’ve got a bag full of hangers that I’m not sure what to do with. After some research–I’m quite inspired. A lot of these ideas would be amazing for merchandising a boutique, too I reckon.

As someone who loves to travel, globes and maps (especially vintage ones) will always be dear to me. While google maps adn GPS are super convenient, the maps that you can hold in your hands or spin and point to in a haze of dreamy inspiration hold a special place in my heart. Maps help us to find our way–but sometimes they even help us get lost–and sometimes, getting off of the beaten path is the best way to travel.
Maps add a sense of whimsy and adventure to outfits and rooms. I love the pillows and am considering a few for the L’il Boomba’s nursery. I also think the pendant lights are lovely and can imagine the pendant lights made from one of those vintage black globes looking so hot. I hope you get to go on a little adventure today!

Whether they used to haul apples, milk, soda or wine, crates can be given a new life to store practically anything in a fun, easy, industrial-rustic kinda way. I’m in love with the crate gardens, and the tall shelving unit, aren’t crates great? (couldn’t resist the rhyme, sorry).

In the Compai Boutique that Faith and I had in Italy, we used old shutters and up-side-down drawers as shelves to display objet d’art and folded clothes. I loved the look of the old shutter then and I love it now. Shutters are very easy to find at salvage yards and can sometimes be found on the streets tossed away as rubbish. There are so many versatile ways to use them in design. How spectacular is that shutter wall? Wow!
