Check out these innovative surface designs by Giles Miller Studio, guaranteed to make an impression on anyone thinking of redecorating. By placing various-shaped tiles at different angles on a wall, the resulting effect is original and impressive. As you can see in the photos belows, the patterns come in an array of colors, textures and materials, making them easy to integrate in any modern home.
Here is a statement from the producers: “Our surfaces allow bespoke imagery to be developed with our clients, and then to be hand-crafted into the materials that we produce. The resulting surface finishes can show patterns, imagery, text, branding or any other visual content our clients desire with a level of intrigue and subtlety not achievable by using traditional color. The studio has developed a range of surface products that allow us to integrate imagery into our wall finishes, using texture and reflection as a means of illustration”. Have a look at the design variety below and tell us what you think!
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.
Create height with items such as plants, artwork and books. Alternate taller pieces with shorter items such as peite vases, as shown below in the A Beautiful Mess studio living room. Not sure where to start? Choose a cohesive look and go for it! The next shelf vignette featured at Emily Henderson showcases a “Desert New Age” style, which welcomes earthy tones, tribal patterns, succulents and mineral specimens, among other pieces. In fact, in the next image we see the exact same shelf, this time styled to create a Playful Scholar look featuring neutral, masculine colors. Note special touches such as a globe and a bust displayed in a cloche. Incorporate a few unique conversation pieces into your shelving display for added interest.
