VI­GNETTE

Cre­ate in­ter­est in your ar­range­ments us­ing a mix of colors and tex­tures. A mass of glass can­ning-jar tops casts a cool glow in a wood trencher and picks up the hues in a vin­tage botan­i­cal print. It’s likely that many of the items for a restyled dis­play are al­ready in your home. Scour the base­ment and at­tic for fresh finds. Gather items in com­ple­men­tary colors and re­cast col­lectibles in new ways to cre­ate your own unique look.

RE­PUR­POSE

A bureau miss­ing draw­ers needn’t de­tour style. Em­ploy coun­try in­ge­nu­ity and re­place draw­ers with a col­lec­tion of suit­case bas­kets to cor­ral soft items such as socks. Smaller bas­kets can con­ceal clut­ter from coins to re­ceipts. A wood fleur-de-lis carv­ing mim­ics the warm shade of the cov­ered bas­kets. A vin­tage jadeite re­frig­er­a­tor con­tainer is per­fect for jew­elry and watches.

A vin­tage hanger be­comes AN in­ter­est­ing and graphic art holder.
