On blogs, on social media, on streets – everyday we celebrate the differences that define us. We dress the way we like, we listen to the music we prefer, and we watch the movies we adore. And we dwell the way we like. Our home is yet another way to highlight and celebrate the differences that make us.
If you are a regular reader of Happy Interior Blog, you know my style. It is very personal, very mixed, and pretty bohemian. Sourcing adequate home accessories would be really difficult here in Munich. But luckily I am an avid traveler and bring back lots of found items from all around the world. And I shop online. One of my ever recurring shopping sources is Etsy. And Etsy celebrates the differences too – with their #DifferenceMakesUs campaign.
When I was asked to partake in their campaign and style my bedside table with Etsy finds, I was all game. And I decided to not only put together one nightstand styling, but three. All different, but all pretty personal. And each styling with found treasures from Etsy. So let’s roll.
The Airplant Jungle
The first styling absolutely speaks to my Urban Jungle Bloggers soul. Did you know that you can buy plants too on Etsy? Well, I found some wonderful airplants from the shop Till Herba Caeli. Finally I had an excuse to use a crazy mix of bowls and vases to hold the airplants.
The Archaeologist’s Nightstand
Oh my love for archaeology is unrivaled. I almost studied archaeology, but when I ended up studying international economics I decided to go to Greece for a year of studies. On Etsy I found a wonderful shop selling handmade replica of Greek ancient busts and artifacts. The head of Hygeia, the goddess of health, is the work of the seller GreekAncientCosmos.
The Bohemian Shrine
Crystals, dried flowers, scented candles – they all call my name. Instead of having all crystals scattered around, I looked for a nice way to display them. The solution is this bohemian wooden triangle shelf by LoveLifeWood. Additionally, I got my fingers on a wonderful handmade cup by LAccentNou (I saw the cup for the first time on JOELIX.com).
So what is the styling of your choice? Or better yet: What difference makes you?
