Pretty Prudent Trend: Scientific Decor

We’ve recently found ourselves completely smitten with science-inspired designs in the home – beakers, periodic tables, anatomy charts, microscopes – you name it, we love it. The great thing with scientific decor is that you can go for a vintage approach with the rustic metals, brighten it up with nature, and teach an educational lesson at the same time. I will also take any chance I can get to buy more glass jars, specimen jars are totally not the same thing as mason jars. If my hypothesis is correct you might be falling for scientific decor too?
