Hot Link: Decor8
Decor8 is one of those blogs that has something I find useful or inspiring in pretty much every post. Written by American editor and design consultant Holly Becker, currently living in northern Germany, the content often includes the latest European decor trends. As a cottager, I especially love to see the amazing-looking gear coming out of Scandinavia, where’s there’s a rich culture of cottaging that is not unlike our own. Becker also emphasizes vintage looks and presents creative ways of recycling old stuff into simply gorgeous decor. This particular post, about reusing wooden crates, really got my creative juices flowing, especially this photo from blogger Kjerstis Lykke :
Adding casters to this stack of crates is genius. I can see using this unit by the door to hold towels, sunscreen, and sunhats; in the bunkie as space for guests to stash a weekend’s worth of supplies; or perhaps in the shed, a place closer to its utilitarian roots, for coralling jars of screws and hardware or half-filled paint cans. Bravo!
