Cheap Idea: Clothespin Chandelier

Cheap Idea: Clothespin Chandelier

It's not only the familiar lamp posts that light the Paris night, but the glow from shop windows hoping to haunt the dreams of passersby who will come back in the morning and spend money they no longer have on beautiful but non-essential things...

Jamin Puech on the rue Vieille du Temple sells fantastically expensive boho chic handbags that are works of art in themselves, from a gem-sized boutique that would make a fantastic apartment, with its ancient patina of centuries gone by. But window displays are always full of free decorating inspiration. Maybe these junky but oddly appealing clothespin chandeliers they had hanging in the window only look chic surrounded by expensive handbags, but it's a nice reminder that you don't necessarily have to spend a lot of money to make a room-changing statement.
