Here's a little peek inside our San Francisco apartment as well as my home office. I spend most of my time at my desk working on the computer, lots of answering emails and photoshopping! But my favorite little corner is where I keep all my jewelry displayed and organized on my dressing table. I get to admire it every day from the moment I wake up and see it from my bed, until the moment I grab a spritz of perfume right before I leave the apartment for work.
Collecting jewelry is such a passion of mine, it would be a shame to keep everything hidden inside my dresser drawers. Instead, I love to display my favorite finds on top of my dressing table in vintage boxes and vintage bowls. I found this adorable two tiered gold cookie tray while thrifting in Dallas a few years ago, perfect for displaying my baubles. I always come across a cookie tray or two at antique malls, but I have spotted them online as well... Love these vintage trays that I found on Etsy here, here and here.
After moving into our new San Francisco apartment, I finally had the opportunity (and the space!) to display a few of my favorite collected jewels and accessories. After tucking everything away for so many years in my tiny Manhattan studio, it is so nice to have a space where I can be reminded of my fondest vintage shopping memories. I found these Pottery Barn Antique Gold Jewelry Boxes to keep my jewelry and sunglasses where I would still be able to see them while keeping everything dust free. Next up on my SF home tour will be my dresser!
Golden filigree boxes framed in glass... I find them at just about every antique shop and I can't help but collect them all! Perfect for storing jewels and precious keepsakes. eBay and Etsy are fully stocked with options as well, I saved a few links below for collectors alike!
I love displaying my favorite vintage jewels on sweet dishes or trays that I find at flea markets and antique malls. Added this pair of signed Coro vintage brooches to my collection recently.
