DIY: embellish with sparkles

Wednesday, 27 July 2011

I am really into interior design, maybe because my father is a wood carpenter that design and make beautiful furniture. This is why I often have to change, move around and add personal style to our flat. Budget is often an issue, especially if you live in a rented place (like myself) where there is no point to invest in expensive items.
And here I come up with an idea! Having many nice and sparkling jewelers, why not using to embellish the table, the living room, the telephone corner?


Sono una grande appassionata di decorazione di interni, ereditata probabilmente da mio padre, un artigiano falegname che disegna, progetta e reallizza spendidi mobili. Sarà per questo che ho spesso il desiderio di spostare mobili, cambiare oggettistica e dare un tocco personale alla mia casa. Ma spesso i costi per rendere più bella una casa sono proibitivi, o non sono contemplati, coprattutto per chi, come me, vive in affitto. Non c’e’ ragione di spendere capitali in preziosi oggetti o mobili.

Ed ecco a cosa ho pensato! Avendo molta bigiotteria brillante, importante e originale, perché non utilizzarla per rendere più bella la tavola, il salotto, l’angolo del telefono?





Cuffs and bracelets with charms are the perfect placeholders

Bracciali rigidi o con pendenti sono perfetti come segnaposto a tavola










Use brooches and statement belts to add a sparkling touch to a precious sofa cushion.

Suntuose cinture e brillanti spille aggiungono un tocco prezioso ai cuscini del sofà.





Necklaces and bracelets are perfect to embellish vases. Use nice bottles and personalised them with simple jewels.

Collane e braccialetti abbelliscono i vasi. Invece dei vasi si possono usare bottiglie e personalizzate con dei semplici gioielli.





And finally, use satin ribbons, brooches, pendants to add a personal touch to your presents! Why don't you use recycle paper for an interesting contrast?

E per finire, usa nastri di raso o tessuto con spille e pendenti per impreziosire regali (magari usando per contrastro una carta riciclata).

  4. How fantastic is that to have a dad that makes beautiful furniture! I am sure that you have really grown an appreciation for his work especially when seeing cheaply made furniture for outrageous prices! Thank you so much for all of your sweet comments and yes I did consider doing a neautral colored belt and shoes with the pink and red or even no belt at all but I saw it with black on the runway and thought it was a great contrast!
