What’s in a shelf? With a blank canvas, the sky is the limit, or at least that’s what Nell Hills designer Bruce Douglas believes. In his example shelf, he blends elements from the kitchen with candles that are as beautiful as they are aromatic. The result is a mixed use tableau that catches that eye with both beauty and functionality, all in hues of blue and white. All items are available at Nell Hills. 

Top Shelf: White Grecian Urn $31.50

Middle Shelf: Green Cabbage dinnerware and salad plates range from $20-$25

Local favorite Pickwick Candles are a harbinger of the season in a Nell Hill’s exclusive fragrance, Screened Porch. 

Bottom shelf: Offset clean white blooms with rich cobalt glassware, perfect for water or wine. Stemmed glasses, $13.50.
