I’m adding lots of details to our home lately. It’s a slow process but the results are thrilling.
I’m transitioning wild, all-genre type decor details into a neutral palette made up of wood, cream & whites, dark brown, and grays in our living room. I’ve decided to add in color through accessories and to focus on a turquoise and yellow theme, where possible.
I’ve also been cleaning out drawers/closets/side tables. I’ve found some things I didn’t realize I’d stashed.
I assume I planned to do something later with these two simple, black frames that I threw in a drawer who knows how long ago. But they just now resurfaced 10 months later.
I came across train and bus ticket stubs from Amsterdam, my ticket to the Louvre and Eiffel tower, a 1 pound note.. lots of little mementos from Europe that weren’t totally touristy. They were bits & pieces of our trip.
I had meant to do something with those stubs and tickets when we came home from our trip, in January of 2012. A year and a half later, I finally did.
Upcycling from my own home might be my new favorite thing!
