SPOTLIGHT ITEM: MAKE YOUR ROOM LOOK SO FLY
Keep those memories alive with this little home idea
For all you readers that love a good adventure and consider yourselves to be globe-trotters, wouldn’t you love a way to preserve all the memories you made? That time you took surf lessons on a beach in Hawaii and fell off the board more times than you can count. That time you hiked up to the Hollywood sign in Los Angeles and had the whole world at your feet. Those are times that you will treasure forever, memories that cannot be re-created.
Well dear readers, we have an easy and charming way for you keep those moments alive right in your home. Introducing the travel shadow box, a unique and modern take on scrapbooking and collage making. The shadow box goes further than a picture frame by having more space between the glass front and the linen-covered hardboard; this allows for the inclusion of threedimensional objects, in addition to photographs, ticket stubs, and other mementos that can be pinned. This particular shadow box has a black iron tree that can hold your pictures in place. The frame is composed of mango wood with a sleek black finish, giving off a rustic, earthy vibe. But, almost any furniture store can supply you with a shadow box design that you can customise to your liking.
A few ideas we have for you are to be creative when it comes to accessorising your shadow box - don’t hold back. Write a humorous saying on the glass that defines the trip and takes you back to this wonderful time in your life. Hang a string of colourful beads or lights around the perimeter of the frame to breathe life to your memories and your walls. Your best of times are waiting to be framed and eternalised. Cheers to the travel shadow box.
