I am currently obsessed with glass cloches and luckily, since they are very trendy right now, I see them everywhere! So let’s talk about creative ideas for how to use a cloche in your own home!
What is a cloche?
French for bell, a cloche (pronounced KLOHSH) is a small, translucent cover. Originally intended to protect plants from frost, today’s use extends to using them for anything and everything. Cloches are wonderful in that they can help to make any ordinary object into a display. And you can easily swap out your display item depending on your mood or the season, so they are very versatile.
I have cloches throughout my home and change what I display depending on the season. Sometimes I use feathers, sometimes books, or even holiday items!
I also have jewelry cloches from Pottery Barn that I love! It’s nice to see my jewelry even when I’m not wearing it.
Sizes can vary greatly from this 30″ tall cloche at Restoration Hardware
to this miniature one sold by simplychi on Etsy.
How to Use a Cloche
What else can you put under a cloche? Pretty much anything that fits! Plants, stacks of books, antique spectacles, cameras, seashells, baby keepsakes and sculptures all look great under a cloche.
