Impulse Accessorizing II

Most of the time there isn't enough money in the budget for a complete overhaul of a home or room and most of the time people would like a little something new to keep their spaces fresh and evolving.  A few new accessories on a console, mantle or side table can breath new life into a room without being cost prohibitive.

From time to time I come across a piece that I would categorize as an "impulse accessory."  It has to be under $100 dollars (so it doesn't require any major savings or a family discussion) but also it needs just enough style to make an impact.

Second Installment: Indonesian Tin Boxes

I came across these boxes while looking around the Serena and Lily website.  I love almost everything they sell; they keep their colors current and their products fresh.  These pressed tin boxes come in a set of 5, are on sale for $47.00 and would add a great ethnic vibe to a space!  It's a great buy because they could be used in so many different ways.  I love the idea of using them together stacked on a side table or separated for smaller spots like a guest bathroom for cotton balls and other amenities. Whether you use them together or spread them around, you are definitely getting your money's worth.

  1. Those boxes are fabulous! I totally know what you mean, sometimes it's the accessories more than the furniture that make a room interesting. It was so great to meet you this weekend and I'm excited to have a new blog to read :)
