One Room Challenge Sneak Peek


In my inspiration board for my Chinoiserie Chic powder room shown below, I included a pair of gray ginger jars. I had a vision of a huge pair of pale gray ginger jars as a contrast in scale to the diminutive powder room. In fact, the photo I used for the inspiration board was of gray ginger jar lamps from 1st dibs that I cropped the tops off because I could not find gray ginger jars anywhere online. Why did I think I could find a pair the size I needed in person on the cheap?  I just had a feeling I would.

Yesterday I walked into T.J.Maxx and found this gorgeous huge pair (20") shown above in my kitchen in the softest, prettiest gray with foo dog tops for $25 each. Just a little peek since I don't want to spoil the fun for my Wednesday post, but I am so happy. They are going to be fantastic!

Did you know that you can go back and check out all my One Room Challenge powder room posts by clicking the navy (my Chinoiserie Chic color of the year) ORC button in my sidebar?

Ginger jars are such a staple and yet these are totally unique with the color and foo dog lids. I'm glad they're getting a good home! Also, can you tell me about the pink wallpaper? fabric? on your inspiration board?

Gotta run by my closest TJ MAXX and see if these have made it there yet! They are great!! Can't wait to see them in your ORC!

I swear the thing I most miss about the US is TJMaxx/HomeGoods! In France you can find wonderful things, but it's hard to find fun "stuff" and it's always expensive when you do... Never at TJ's prices!
