Trash picking inspiration

From Apartment Therapy. Alex, the owner, paid no more than $300 for anything in his place and picked up these lucite boxes from a store's Christmas trash. (Note the interesting placement of the chandelier, too.)

See the whole place here.


  1. Definitely inspiration! When I read the line that they were from a store's trash, I thought, I would never be able to find something like that in DC. Imagine my surprise when I clicked through to the tour and it actually was DC! I may have to do some scouting around store dumpsters sometime soon....

  2. this is my type of decorating, for sure!
