When Practical Meets Pretty

Saturday, March 8, 2014

It's no secret that I prefer simple, classic decor with a colorful accent or two.  The same goes for every day items.  I look for simple, pretty packaging when I purchase things that the family will use that I know will end up in any room in the house.  If it's pretty and will work within our decor, I'm more likely to buy it.

I was recently in Target picking up a few items and was pleasantly surprised by the new Kleenex designs!  I'll admit it's been a while since I've shopped for facial tissue, so I was thrilled to find options that blend rather than clash with our decor.

We no longer have to hide the box out of sight.  Even better - the branding is on the bottom of the box.   Now the Kleenex box looks like it belongs there.  I wish all every day items were so thoughtfully packaged!

If you like what you see here, I invite you to take this style quiz.  You might also enjoy the fun facts.  I definitely learned a thing or two.

Thank you Kleenex for sponsoring this post and for making practical everyday items stylish!  Thoughts and styling are all my own.  If you enjoyed this post I invite you to watch this fun video.


  1. Dude. Kleenex is where it's at when it comes to box design. I can't choose between all of the awesome graphics they offer. You can also design your own box with your own photos. I went online and made some for all of my office mates and they were pretty wow'd!

  2. Love that white vase sitting on your table! I have a "thing" for white milk glass. :)

  3. Everything you style turns out simply beautiful! Oh and I love your office space.

  4. I would say your styling is quite spot on, so pretty and the Kleenex box at the bottom fits in perfectly with your vignette. Who knew tissues could be pretty?
