Styling Apothecary Jars

Apothecary jars...I just love them!  They make it easy to add a pop of color in a space, hold everyday items, and create seasonal displays.  As an interior designer, adding finishing touches to a space can be as simple as displaying items found in your home or purchased regularly.

In a kitchen, colorful fruit can be added for a pop of color or coffee and tea for functional storage solutions that add a bit of elegance to your daily routine.  Organizing bathroom essentials lends itself well for a collection of pretty hand soaps, a collection of shells, or even bath salts and everyday supplies that are often seen but not in an organized manner. 

Collect as many apothecary jars that you can, whether vintage or new, and showcase your collectables, create a few seasonal displays, or simply add candles in your favorite setting.  If you want, you can even think about sharing them with family and friends by creating taylored gift ideas that recipients can use for years to come.
