When Paloma invited me to take part in Joy & Revelry’s White Box Challenge by styling a mystery item from her shop I said yes immediately. Everything in her shop is expertly curated so I knew I wouldn’t have a problem finding a way to style whatever arrived. Plus, who doesn’t love getting surprise packages?
When my silverleaf tray arrived I knew exactly how I’d use it. While I love my boyfriend dearly, I do not love the pile of clutter that is perpetually taking over our bureau. The black metal greek key handles added just enough masculinity to the weighty silverleaf tray for what I had in mind.
While my boyfriend wrapped up some work downstairs I covertly got to styling his stuff. Receipts and discarded bits of paper were thrown away, a small dish was added to corral the millions of pennies he’s always dumping out of his pockets, and the cologne his Dad is always gifting him got lined up neatly. I also couldn’t resist adding one of the cheeky Playboy Club ashtrays I saved from my One Kings Lane sale (even though I find it far more amusing than he does.)
I thought for sure I’d get some grief when he discovered my little project, but surprisingly he was thankful for the clean up. Brings a whole new definition to manscaping, right?
