There’s something about these bottles from Shan Valla that makes me lust after them. I love the gold and white combo which is much softer than gold and black. The porcelain has a worn finish showing the seems and labels just like an actual milk bottle, and the bling of the gold offsets the vintage feeling nicely. They would look great clustered on a shelf together as they are in this photo or displayed singularly. Although not functional, sometimes you just need a decorative accent – something you enjoy looking at and something that makes you happy. Not everything has to be functional. Sometimes it can just be pretty.
As much as I love black, sometimes I want something a bit softer. Shades of cream, gold, camel and white look elegant and feminine. Gold accessories add some oomph and take an outfit from casual to a bit more chic. What do you think? Do you prefer black or a softer neutral palette?
