An Eye For The Details.

Once you’ve got the blank canvas of your room sorted, and let’s face it that’s the least interesting part of interiors, then you can focus on scouting out the bits and bobs to really dress the place and make it your own. Everybody’s different, and therein lies the fun…
This is where the design and your personality really come into their own.
I’ve had a pleasant look around Internet land and there are some really fun but flawless designs appearing from the people behind brands like Suck UK and Dwell.

Below are a few things I’ve found, a compilation of things of interest if you will. Some of the most novel accessories and appliances for the home that are out there at the moment.

To clarify these are not all necessarily things I’d have in my home(although I do actually own some of these things), the crystal skull, for example, would look bloody awful on my sideboard! But as a design piece I love it enough to have it a part of this post. Nice inspiration. A crystal skull. Bloody hell. See, it’s good isn’t it? I’ll not even start on the flying pugs..!

So ornaments, accessories and kitchen appliances. Boring? I think not.
