I found the old chippy flour bins earlier in November, and they're perfect for storing my as yet to find a place for, too pretty to store away wall candelabras - and bottles of wine.
They're great, open storage under the bench, and I will add lights inside of them, as well - ala 'Campagne Decoration' style.
Past December issues of 'Campagne Decoration' always have lights strung along the floor, under and sometimes on the furniture. Pure 'eye candy' for me - I want to get inside each room they photograph! Their December 2003 issue, and every bit as interesting to me today as when I bought the magazine in Paris.
Natural, botanical, lots of little lights - more apartment holiday decorating to come~
