Apothecary Jars

Apothecary jars are such fun to decorate with.  They add height, unique shape and character to a mantle, buffet, or countertop.  They come in all shapes and sizes and can be filled with unique objects.  Whether flowers in a living room, candy on a buffet, or rubberbands in an office there is sure to be one to meet all of your needs

These are all from pottery barn and range in price from $54-$69.  They are beautiful but you dont have to pay high prices for amazing style.  Below are the beautiful apothecary jars you can find at House of Hargrove.  Our prices range from $20-$35

Decorating Ideas

Nothing makes a house a home better than unique home decor. Details are so important to pulling everything together and there are a lot of ways to do this at an affordable price.

Using an old fireplace mantle is a great way to display art, photos, etc. You will see many people use molding shelves in their homes but a mantle adds more character and acheives the same goal.


Adding pops of color on signature pieces helps add style to a home. It is a great way to use color in your home and tie a room together. Below is a great antique buffet in distressed green that I have in the entry way


Using open frames is another great way to decorate your home. They come in many sizes and styles. Below you will see a large frame that I have used as a headboard. This is an inexpensive way to frame a bed. You will also see 2 open frames hung in my guest bathroom. So many homes come with the large mirrors and they seem very generic. By hanging 2 open frames over the original mirror it makes it look more charming and it is much cheaper than buying new mirrors.
