Can you remember the last time you enjoyed throwing one of these in the air? The people of Estiluz probably thought it was time to remind you of the playful potential that a balloon has to offer. So they created a series of cute balloon lamps that can be used in the children’s rooms. But even though these designs were particularly envisioned for kids, no one says you can not have one. Why not take advantage of the original design of these balloon lamps and place them in the lounge area or the living room of a family home? You can have a single model, but choosing to place three or four could prove to be a good idea as well. The result is an overall feel of floating balloons, which sets a happy mood. What do you think of these lamps and where would you place them?
And one of my all-time favorite shelf styling tricks is to display plants on the top layer of shelving, which will draw the eye upward, as well as create height and drama. Below we see shelf-top plants in a tour of my retro-modern home office. Last but not least, we shine the spotlight on the challenging task of styling kids’ room shelving, drawing inspiration from the product photography of The Land of Nod. The Zero Gravity Wall Shelf below illustrates a perfect balance of practicality and design flair, mixing carefully placed toys with books in eye-catching colors.
Let’s get started with some styling inspiration from Urban Outfitters, a brand that offers an interesting array of wall-mounted shelving options. Many of them celebrate the best of geo style. Below we see a trio of shelving solutions, including the Bryn Mountain Display Shelf, pictured at the top right of the photo. Note how each of these shelves holds “like items,“ such as rocks, jewelry and other natural wonders. The styling of this Geo Triangle Shelf proves there’s power in empty space. You may be tempted to fill every square inch of your decorative shelving, but remember that sometimes less is more.
