Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Prada, Jimmy Choo, Alexander McQueen, Gucci, Tory Burch, Christian Louboutin and Tiffany.
These names bring up thoughts of luxury, success, quality, beauty and prestige, for the organized home?
We were checking out The Peak of Chic this weekend and got inspired by Jennifer Bole's view of decorating with luxury good logos. She points out that decorating with luxury goods divides people (some hate, some love). You can purchase a tray painted with the Hermès logo, a pair of Louis Vuitton lamps (pictured left), an LV Kleenex tissue box holder (a friend of ours has one), a dressing screen, a Fendi couch... well, you get the point.
No matter what people think about the use of luxury goods logos, what seems appropriate is the use of logo boxes. This got us thinking, could you organize your entire home (or at least bits and pieces) with these boxes, bags, covers, protectors and pouches you seem to acquire but never really know what to do with? They're too nice to toss. Besides, some people feel half the retail cost of luxury goods is for the packaging. So why not try and re-use them as organizing accessories around your home or office?
So where could you use your boxes? Try these, to start:
- Gucci tie box to hide your pens
- Tiffany glass bowl box to store your winter hats and gloves
- Harrod's shirt box to store stationary
- Hermès box for the Tivo remote
- Godiva chocolate box to protect your cummerbund
- Dom Perignon champagne box for magic markers
- Coach box to store CDs on your desk
- Luxury soap box to hold paper clips
- Michael Kors jewelry pouch for men's collar stays
