{storage inspiration: perfume display}

on-display-hed-23

. . . beautiful shimmery bottles on night tables and marble vanities, in leather handbags and hallway consoles . . . have amassed a rather impressive collection of perfume and have always adored the notion of pretty things on display, so completely fell in love with the idea of displaying pretty toiletries in slimline shelving originally intended for plates -- such a wonderfully brilliant and perfectly lovely idea . . .

Lovely! As a signature-scent wearer I couldn't pull this off, but perhaps I couls substitute in pretty cosmetics and lotions!

OMG! Soo pretty! but I can't imagine having so many bottles of perfume and not having them change scents before I get around to using them. Beautiful display tho!

I LOVE the way this looks. Like a beauty alchemist shop.


.... okay BUT I just have to say that you really shouldn't keep your perfume in rooms with a shower, or in direct sunlight, because it changes and spoils the scent. And PSA over.

That is such a fabulous way to store perfumes - think I might have to look into something like that.

I'd love to use that picture on my blog. Would that be okay with you if I do? I would obviously credit you if you agree.

I'm always looking for guest bloggers for my perfume website. If you think you might be interested - I'd love to incude a guest post from you.

Best wishes from Spring-like London.
