@Lauriano Garriaga Montalvan, the homeowner, Daniel, had many personal items in boxes and decided it was time to display some of these meaningful keepsakes. The artwork display by the front hall includes an original photo of his late grandfather when he was in the Air Force, his vintage pocket watch and a small toy block — the letter "D" for Daniel, which was saved from his childhood.

@threlkel the light is from Italy and by Prandina. It is called the Notte. Mirror finish exterior and bright yellow interior for fun :)

The most loved. The teddy bear that went with your child everywhere, the little corduroy overalls that turned velvety from being worn and washed so many times, the toy with the most teeth marks — these are the sorts of things worth saving. And this applies to grown-up stuff, too! If there is a special piece of clothing that instantly brings to mind a delicious time in your life, go ahead and keep it, even if you know you will never wear it again. One of my own most treasured keepsakes is my grandfather's hat. In so many of my memories of him, he is wearing this hat. I have a picture of myself as a little girl wearing the hat. And it still smells like his pipe tobacco — that's something a photograph just can't do.

Minimal elegance is found through a few using only our favorite pieces ...photos against branches, a huge drum light with colour...so clean and airy..it lets everything breath and show itself...i think the space around our art is also an important consideration...our best pieces hanging in emptiness create a stronger statement than piles of random things shoved together.

What to Keep Reminders of triumph over adversity. Remember how I said to toss photos of your no-good ex-boyfriend? Well, do that if you haven't yet. But if you have a photo of you on that awesome postbreakup road trip with your best friend, put that puppy in a frame! The most compelling stories include hardship; the key is to focus on how you have grown because of your challenging experiences. hall by Jennifer Young Jennifer Young Save to Ideabook Email Photo Reminders of positive experiences. Your wedding day, a fabulous birthday party, a special trip with your mom — one of the main reasons we keep mementos is for their ability to bring up memories we enjoy reliving. But we are talking really positive, here. Not neutral. Not, "Oh, that was a pretty nice day." The things you choose to keep forever should remind you of the shining gems in your life: the most important people, places and experiences you have ever had. Don't settle for humdrum. The best representative example. You may cherish the memory of your wedding day, but you do not need to keep all 50 extra programs, every outtake the photographer sent you and an uneaten favor bag of Jordan almonds. Your favorite photographs and a few key mementos will hold more emotional power over the years than a giant boxful of wedding stuff. If you took 50 photos at a single birthday party, whittle them down to a handful that best capture the crowd and a few key moments. contemporary hall by Heather Merenda Heather Merenda Save to Ideabook Email Photo The most loved.

Grams certainly wouldn't want you feeling weighed down by her china set, would she? Be honest about your feelings about the stuff you have inherited. Are you ever going to use it? Do you love it for what it is, or do you love it (and hold on to it) only because you loved the person who gave it to you? My advice is to honor your feelings but respect your space. This might mean keeping a single soup tureen (the one you remember from all those Sunday dinners) and passing the rest along to another relative who really wants it, or selling it on eBay. If you can't come to a decision quite yet, put it in the "later" pile.
