Here we go can let your imagination to run & rock by bringing out vintage elements from cupboard like the caskets, bottles, fabrics etc to create a cohesive design for your coffee table, dressing table, side board or even for an evening tea gathering.

Enjoy your decor splendor with your touches by mixing the old & the new in cozy little corners of your home.

I  brought out my heirloom  pieces for this post to use them for three different decor styles. 

Havenly, an online interior design house encouraged me to share my old world charm decor with lot of memories attached.

      A old Bonsai tree tells it's story of growing in that little pot. 

The tiny little wooden box with fine work of ivory carvings on the lid is more than sixty years old and given to me by my mother. For the teascape i used it as a tea sachet holder.Placing it on a old book looked pretty. The book which is sixty five years old from my father's collection of books. 

The money box from my in laws home is quiet old ( Eighty plus years) as well. Using it for a bar decor on a side board created an eye catching display. The divided space inside the money box allowed the bar  accessories like the cocktail shaker, measuring cups, cork opener, bottle opener and a Swiss knife to fit in. The round old mirror with the brass edge( 30 years) a old buy of us came handy to place the decanters. As a kid my hubby has played with the money box putting coins & little toys. 

        The English make cork opener not less than 90 years old

The pretty sandalwood jewelry box with fine work of Taj Mahal impression a class apart . It speaks by itself  the Indian craftsmanship. Dear to us and it is more than eighty years old. It is handed over to us from my in laws home.  

            The pretty silver box quiet a beauty on a dressing table.  

                        I used a vintage bottle as a brush holder.

  1. Wow. That book from thathas shelf. Brought back old memories. Beautiful collection. Makes you touch base with your childhood and youth. Truly awesome.

  2. Hi there! Oh, I agree with you about rummaging through cupboards and closets to rediscover hidden treasures that have been out of sight/out of mind! We all have cool items stashed away that can come to the rescue when we're seeking a change of pace. Instead of running out and buying all new, it's a more creative gesture to build from what we already have. It's tough for me to do, but we otherwise end up with a whole store in our home!!! 😆 You do such a nice job of combining the old and treasured (like that 80-year-old jewelry box!!!) with the new.

    Have a great weekend, my friend!

  3. Very beautiful pieces!Love your Bonsai too!Xoxo.

  4. Treasures are always hidden in closets, boxes, drawers, etc. You are right my friend, memories are the best that things bring us from family gone as much as family here with us. What a beautiful post you created with your gorgeous memorabilia. I love the old lovely jewelry box my friend, it is a real treasure from your mom.

  5. I really appreciate your professional approach. These are pieces of very useful information that will be of great use for me in future.
