A gratifying quickie

In my previous post, I mentioned doing a book review of Amsterdam: Made by Hand, and it’s coming soon, I promise! I’m just a bit swept up by work, social events etc so while I get my blogging act together, here is a fabulous, chic, quick and cheap idea of a disco vase that I just love, courtesy of the talented stylist Sania Pell.

Some of you may already have come across it in Decorate (the new book by Holly Becker and Joanna Copestick)…

In her blog, Sania shares this simple but brilliant idea…

Simply tip a bag of sequins into a circular glass vase with a funnel, fill with water, watch some sequins sink and some rise (and perhaps some floating indecisively in the middle), add flower(s) of choice to suit the setting/mood… et voilà – a glamorous and eye-catching result requiring very little effort!

Do you love it or do you love it?
