Inspiration Only: The Heritage Cabinet

I spotted Boca do Lobo’s heritage cabinet on Yellowtrace this morning and can’t shake how lovely this statement cabinet piece is. Directly inspired by Portugal’s rich history, the cabinet is decorated with hand-painted tiles that form a story of what once lived — and will continue to live on.

Of course, the piece made me think about my own heritage, history and antique surroundings. There’s the apple crate from my grandfather’s farm, an oil lamp from a great grandfather’s attic… even a milkglass vase in our kitchen holds special meaning. I can’t help but think of the story they’ve told in my own life — and the stories they’ll continue to tell as years go on.

What sort of heritage pieces exist in your own home, and how do you display them? Spill it!
