Whether it is from your own closet, an heirloom, or just a fantastic vintage find...clothing like this old wedding gown can really become the centerpiece of a room. Consider draping it over a bed OR put your babies baptism gown in a shadowbox and hang it on the wall. Better yet, get a dress form, so you can protect the shape and display it in a corner. That's what I did with a dress I bought from a renaissance festival years ago. I thought it'd be a fun halloween costume. It is so lovely, I hated to put it away for 11 months of the year. A young girl would go gaga over having a beautiful dress, veil, and gloves on display next to her tea set and dolls.
If you're someone who loves vintage accessories, you may have accumulated lots of hats, purses, and gloves that are now at the bottom of your closet. Why not use them as an accent for your room? You bought them because you love the vintage look and they reflect your classic style. They'll likely add the same flair to your wall. Nothing is better than having your home reflect exactly who you are. Clothes and accessories can double as decorations. Get them out of the closet!!
