{simple home} an apothecary jar


Friday, 29 May 2015

Sometimes it's the smallest thing that makes the biggest impact. I've been on the search for a vintage apothecary jar for my mantel for quite some time but have never really found one I loved. I didn't want one that was clear and you can find loads of them at antique fairs, but I thought the white walls wouldn't really work well with one of them. I can see those looking great with a grey or black background though - that would be stunning. No, I wanted a brown one. So I've settled for a new one which I've found at the beautiful Covet store in Ilkley. A shop that is stuffed to the rafters with goodies and totally worth the trip if you are in the vicinity. To me that jar brings everything together - colour, warmth, simple and rustic. Teamed with these vibrant scented pink peonies they are making my living room smell incredible.
