Those with a passion for interior design and furniture might already be familiar with mydeco.com, a British home design website, which also launched a U.S. site earlier this year. Daniel Nelson is mydeco’s Social Media Manager and he also writes for the mydeco blog. He has a huge interest in strong, graphic images and typography, which he reports to find in abundance on Etsy!
Ever since I was young I have kept a box of things that inspire me. Objects that caught my eye and went into the “keep that forever” treasure chest. It annoys my partner who regards it as clutter, but these are really sacred in a funny way. They are memories and they spark something in my mind that might have otherwise never resurfaced.
So finding these items is a joy and a task, but I have tuned my eye to only seek out items that are really and truly going to continue to make me smile. It has taken quite a few years but I know that I am a sucker for typographic prints and objects; the letters are so inviting to read. Twin this with some bold blocks of colour and I am there hook, line and sinker.
Show me an Olivetti Valentine typewriter and I am anybody’s. This typewriter greeting card by ILovePaperHeart would be the perfect thing to live in my box of things. Far too precious to send to anyone, far too precious to leave lying about. Quick, tuck it in the box.
You don’t have to spend much time around me before I utter the words present and correct, and I love their Homework leather pencil case. These guys are doing a fab job of bringing anal retention to my life.
Who wouldn’t like a poster with the words “Gin” and “More Gin” written on them in cute hand-written text? Love this print by StandardDesigns, and I do think it would be useful to have a key for expletives!
Many thanks to Daniel for sharing these great picks! You can also check out his personal blog, Atelier Tally.
