I think we all have seen homes where ladders are used as design elements. Mostly I have seen them in bathrooms, where they are used for hanging towels. Actually there are many other ways how ladders could be used in home décor. I put together a list of 5 wonderful ideas for decorating with ladders. So here we go:
1. In bathroom for hanging towels. It seems to me that this is the most popular way to use ladders in interiors.
2. In living room or in home office to store throws or blankets. Some throws are just so pretty that you may not want to storage them hidden behind the closet doors.
3. In kitchen to hang towels or some textiles used for decorating dining table. Again, if you have some nice kitchen textiles you may want to use them as accent pieces in your kitchen and a ladder is one option for storing them.
4. In bedroom or in entry for exposing beautiful accessories like your favorite shoes, scarfs, bags … whatever you like!
5. In bedroom as a bedside table. Rungs can be used for clip lights, magazines and even for glasses!
What other ideas for using ladders in home decorating you have come across? It would be very interesting to hear!

The new week will start with a raw and industrial interior I came across this weekend (… so no blue colors this time!). This renovated 132 square meters brick house from Copenhagen was built in 1922. Family who lives there likes to give old and little bit rusty things a second chance, for example the glass wall dividing the living room is actually a large window section from an old greenhouse, curtains are made from an old tablecloth, tiles in the kitchen came from a hotel kitchen and a big cabinet in the living room is from a hospital. Very clever repurposing, especially the greenhouse window, isn’t it? :)
I like these white washed floors in the living room and the contrast of an old table painted light turquoise and old metal Tolix chairs. Also I like the real stump placed in front of the fireplace and the candle holders that look like stumps (is “stump” correct word to describe these wooden things I described?!).
Have a nice new week!
