In a way, Pinterest is about creating collections of our favorite things, but today we’re bringing you a few ways to display the things you gather in real life. 1. Printer’s Trays were originally used to sort typesetting pieces in the time when all printed materials were set by hand. They have since gone out of use, but their eclectic look and varied cubby holes make them perfect for displaying a collection of tiny trinkets. 2. A kitschy collection of vintage globes is perfect for a space that’s home to a geography buff, world traveller, or a few curious kiddoes.

There’s a wonderful feeling of newness and excitement that comes with the start of school. The movie “You’ve Got Mail” captures this feeling best when Joe Fox asks Kathleen Kelley: “Don’t you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address.” Whether or not you or a little one are starting school this year, let’s get back that first day of school feeling with these classroom-inspired finds. 1. Smile-inducing school lunch ideas- Pack a lunch that makes your student smile when they open their lunch box, or feel like a kid again by bringing some creative eats to work….

Pinterest Fab 4: Bookcases and Bright Vases

I love finding great roundups on Pinterest. That way, when I start a design project, someone else has done all the hunting and gathering for me and I can draw inspiration from one or all of the things they’ve collected. I found two really cool roundups for today that will have you itching to redesign your living room this weekend. 1. This roundup from The Lennox is great because it not only tells you how to decorate a bookcase, but it features beautiful photos of bookshelves styled by leading designers. (Including Emily Henderson who we featured last week!) This bookcase design roundup from yummymummyclub is helpful too. Tip: Stacking books horizontally leaves room for pretty items to peek out behind….
