It's the little things that will often catch my eye as the ad below by Bentwood Luxury Kitchens did the moment I glanced at it.
Their cabinets are stunning but what intrigued me most was the roll of paper towel laying in the urn on the countertop.
Realistically, it would be a slight inconvenience to grab the paper towel roll with wet hands. Rather, it is typical to see paper towel rolls on a holder on the counter or...
...on the wall.
Do you make the sacrifice for presenting things in a more decorative fashion vs. being practical? I have been guilty of this on many occasions, including adding a foot stool in the powder room for placement of paper hand towels as there is no room on our pedestal sink. You have to bend over in order to reach them. Definitely not practical. (Perhaps I need a tall urn?)
Getting back to urns, Woman's Day features 8 Pretty Ways to Use Garden Urns on their website with the vignette below as a favorite of mine.
My search has been ongoing for some time now, looking for the perfect urn to house our kitchen utensils. The photo is motivating me to continue with the hunt for a decorative home for those everyday needs.
The inspirational hunt begins very briefly with the internet. Niermann Weeks' Positano Urn, which stands approximately 12" tall with a charming rustic vibe yet very classic in shape.
A french iron urn from Pierre Deux allows you to see exactly what is being stored, like utensils.
