Bottle it up


Home decor, exterior and interior, is another love of mine. I love using mason jars, wine bottles, or other types of glass jugs as vases or lighting. They look clean and relaxed, yet artistic and unpretentious, and add a rustic comfortable feel to the room.

1. A photo I took at the Maison Martin Margiela boutique in Central in Hong Kong. Simple, minimal decor with personality.
2. Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere made this floating vase for her kitchen and I'm totally smitten with the idea. Gives a pop of life and color, and is also space efficient if you have little counter area.
3. Hanging mason jar lanterns. These make a summer dinner on the patio so much more magical, like having the company of hundreds of little lightning bugs over for supper.
4. Lindsay of Purr Design made these suspended wine bottle vases that I absolutely adore. It instantly creates a cute country kitchen/dining room in the city.
