When you walk through my front door there is a relatively small sitting room with a 3/4 wall separating it from the kitchen. The wall looks nice, but is difficult to keep clean. To reach the wall I either have to climb up on the couch or the kitchen counter, and then I can still only reach part of it.
Instead of trying to clean it all of the time, I decided to buy vases and other decorative items. It makes the wall look less dusty and ties in the colors from the rest of the room.
One of my favorite places to look at vases is Novica.com. The colors of my room are kind of hard to match, but I love the bright bold colors of the Murano hand blown vases. I have my eye on these
The Murano vases are hand blown in Brazil so unfortunately are a little bit too pricey for me. But I just love them!
I love that everything in Novica.com is made by artisans all over the world, and that the pieces are truly unique.
Besides home goods Novica also carries Handmade Jewelry, clothing, and paintings.
