Sweet, sweet storage.

It's funny how you go to the shops with the intent of buying one thing, and come out with a bunch of completely awesome things that are totally unrelated to the thing that you went to buy in the first place. In this instance, I went to buy a shower cap and came home with a storage jar. Go figure!

Maxwell & Williams Olde English Storage Jar

I filled it up with Daim chocolates from IKEA for a nice colour splash on the kitchen bench. I like the chunky 'old school' style of the jar, especially as it goes well with my spice jars.

The reason that it works well with the Daim chocolates is because they are small, and uniform in size and are a bright 'statement' colour. If the aim is to have one element make a statement (in this case the colour) then the others must 'take a back seat' and let the boldness of the colour take over.

This kind of grouping would be less successful if the bright red things in the jar were all different shapes and sizes. Different shapes and sizes can look good in a more open space such as on a bench or shelf, but in the confinement of the jar there must be some agreement by the items to work together.

Today's lesson is; If you want to go bold there should be some element of uniformity.

Jar available from Giving and Living and other retailers.
