A fun way for children to experience unexpected rural dimensions and an amusement item for adults, the Heffer Pitcher
is irresistible. Or as the producers describe it – “udderly irresistible”. With its clever double walled glass design, the pitcher reveals its natural side when filled with milk. Probably the first adjective that comes to mind when describing this item is “cute”. Especially if you take its size into consideration: the pitcher is only four inches (ten centimeters) tall, which makes it a jewel to have around the kitchen. On the other hand, it would not hurt if the producers would come up with a larger version of the creative item (meaning a more practical design) as well. But we are certain that children will fall in love with its original appearance, no matter what the liquid inside. The user can totally take advantage of its transparency and color it in various ways- for example, the cup below was filled with a salad dressing, but also works great with sauces and syrups. Priced $24, the Heifer Pitcher is fun, creative and visually appealing. And it is the closest you’ll ever get to drinking milk “like a natural” from the comfort of your own kitchen.

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.
