Crates and Palettes

Up cycling and salvage is a really big current trend in interiors and as a stylist I’ve noticed that there are some really inventive ways of using the humble crate and palette in the home to bring in a bit of salvage style on a budget.

The shoot I am working on at the moment is focusing on the trend Salvage and I am due to start shooting a look book for press shots, highlighting furniture and home accessories that fall into this trend. Whilst I was shopping for props, I bought two crates from our local florist for £10 each and there have been so many different ways I have used them, that they have been the best £20 I’ve ever spent.

Here are a few more ways you could use these simple wooden boxes to great (or crate?) effect. Sorry about that, couldn’t resist the pun!
