Let’s say you want to do something to personalize your apartment or home.
You’re looking around at blogs thinking “That’s so neat! I could do that! or “I just haven’t had any time for side projects!” or maybe, “Every time I try doing something like that with my walls, it never looks like it did in the magazine.” Believe me… this will! Check out these shelves found on Home Designing.
The coolest thing about these shelves is the aspect of personalization. What’s important to you? Music? Spell it out and use them to hold some of your favorite CD’s or concert DVD’s that you’ve been to.
The shelves (which can be floor-standing and more table-like if you prefer) say it for you, and you just dress them up with your own things that you need to put somewhere anyway.
Whilst scoping out some fun shelving solutions here, the ANITA range by Ricard Mollon popped up and spelled out ‘hello’! These thermoformed acrylic letter forms can help you say a lot about your home, quite literally; available in floor standing size, or smaller versions for your wall, each letter is sold individually to allow you the freedom to put things in your own words.
Available at Quattria, these typographical beauties stand right on trend, with many of us now displaying decorative keywords like ‘Love’ and ‘Home’ in our abodes, and the emergence of fantastic ranges like the font based storage by Set26, the Tabisso chairs and lamps, and Fontable 2D letter tables.
We’re not sure how cool these transparent forms would look if you crammed your entire book collection onto them, but as a design feature they are pretty nifty; stack high and au natural as a room divider, or appreciate as a debris free statement piece.
The three dimensional characters could even work singularly as bedside tables, use your initial to claim your side of the bed, or in the TV room next to the best seat in the house! Consider grouping photo frames on the word ‘FAMILY’, a collection of retro keepsakes on ‘TOYS’, or a sculptural feature on ‘ART’, the possibilities are endless! Do we really need to spell it out for you?
The shelves are completely customizable, so play around with them on the Quattria website and imagine them all the ways they can be arranged – stacked on top of each other, hung on the wall, spread out around a room, used as side tables… anything you can dream up. Then let them decorate for you – shnazzy.
“When it comes to art, buy with your eyes, not your ears. I tried very hard not to ‘decorate’ with art. Art should be reflective of your personality and what’s going on in your head—not reflective of the colors of a sofa.”
