We love wall murals that add a little extra to a room, making it feel genuine and creating an overall good mood. This is exactly the case with the work we would like to present today, creatively done by Pixers: “City Never Sleeps is our tribute to the great metropolises that for ages have inspired not only artists, but also most importantly, ordinary people. The cities that are a continuous dazzle of lights and cacophony of noises, but still attract like a magnet.
The cities where hearts of inhabitants beat the same rhythm and where history is created by human passions, dramas and great romances. The cities that never sleep, because when some people say ‘goodnight’, the other say ‘good morning’. The cities where anything can happen and any dream can come true.” We love them all and believe they can truly enhance a modern interior. [Photos and information sent via e-mail by Pixers]
Speaking of “less is more” design, if your shelf offers little display space, consider opting for one or two standout items to showcase rather than a slew of small finds. In the next image, we see the Magical Thinking Peaks Shelf, crafted from glass and aluminum. Then again, there’s something charming about a curiously cluttered look, especially if items are thoughtfully curated. The Magical Thinking Pyramid Shelf below holds treasures and curiosities. When your shelves make a sculptural statement, don’t overwhelm and block them with clutter. After all, when the design is as fabulous as the Bamboo Step Wall Shelf in the next featured image, you certainly don’t want to cover up the bold form of your shelving.
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.
