Started by “a group of friends from Seattle, Washington”, PillowMob brings fun and interesting ways of staying connected with your friends and family – by offering them a funny pillow of your face or by adorning your home with their faces. And then there are other faces and things you can put on your pillows – your pets, your favorite snacks or even your favorite coins. You simply upload your desired photo on their site, and PillowMob will make your custom pillow and then ship it to you or your friend. You can even choose from their collection of puffy pillow heads, if you find one that captures your attention. Choose between the oval (7 by 11 inches), round or the heart-shaped pillows and finish it off with one of the ten fabric colors and patterns on the back of your pillow. All pillows cost $30 and include the international shipping price, so you have a fun, fresh pillow for an affordable price. Who’s first?
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.
Now it’s my turn to share some Decoist design advice with you! First up, we see a grouping of small items displayed on the DIY Round Shelf I created for a previous Decoist post. When deciding what to display, avoid overcrowding your shelf in terms of weight and height. For a small round shelf like the one displayed in the two images below, lightweight items are essential. Plus, smaller items allow the shape of the shelf to truly shine. Also consider what’s on display near the shelf you’re styling. An example is the open shelving featured in my kitchen tour. I’ve filled it with an array of teapots, coffee pots, cake stands, serving trays and more. So when it came time to style the shelving of the nearby garden window, I kept it simple. Just a few items did the trick, preventing the kitchen from being overwhelmed by “stuff”.
