ACCESSORIES

Irregular Mesh

Perhaps you’re a little tired of wall decals, and believe me, I understand, but take just a moment to check out this one by Camila León. It’s just the right size; it would look similar to wallpaper in smaller room (say, a powder room), and on a larger wall it would be more of an art focal point. It’s a limited edition (50-piece), so if you’re into it, you better grab it soonish.

Do what you love / Love what you do

If you don’t do what you love, do something else. And if you can’t (or won’t) do something else, learn to love what you do. Simple enough advice.

Crystal Crayons

These are too aesthetically pleasing to pass up, even if you’ve not made crayon art for years. Actually, if you’ve not picked up crayons in years, now’s definitely the time to bring it back, with these lovely gems as motivation.

Wallplates

I seriously like Kickstarter. There’s quite a few smart product ideas looking to get a little support, and it sure doesn’t take much money to help out. Case in point, these Wallplates by Justin Porcano. I’d say they’re an improvement on Paul Koh’s Toggle and Rocker Key Switch in that the hook (and/or envelope) function is located to the side instead of above the actual switch. Pledge $15 or more and you get the Hook version, shown on right.

Set of Musical Glasses

These glasses would be excellent to have at your next dinner party, wouldn’t they? The graphics are musical notations for the correct level of liquid to produce the perfect pitch when a user runs their finger along the rim of the glass. As the price is for a set of 2, you’ll need to shell out a fair amount of dough to get a complete octave.

A Goal Planner

As we all know, goals are often easy to dream up but sometimes very hard to accomplish. Designer Victor Jack Mathieux set out to make a planner that has a step-by-step guide for setting goals. Intended for absolutely anyone, the easy format is a snap to follow and will help you define your resources and action plan. Once you have the plan down on paper, all that’s left is putting it into practice. Could be a thoughtful gift for a recent graduate.

Milky Way Minor Cheese Knives

If the La Via Lattea Cheese Knife Set was way too rich for your wallet (at $400, I’d say that’s likely), but you loooove your cheese enough to treat it to something sort of special, check out these puppies. Designed by the very same Mr. and Mrs. Gasparini, this series was intended as lower priced option for an “interested public but not necessarily to experts.”

We’ve featured a similar version of this before, but this version is updated with more pages and a different color, and now it’s offered again stateside, so I thought it was worth another visit.

Fold Key Hook

I’m a notorious key loser. Also notorious for looking for keys for like 15 minutes when they’re in my jacket pocket. Or in my purse. Or my tote bag. The problem is, I have too many places where my keys could be instead of having one designated place for them. Something like this little Fold Key Hook might just do the trick. The little “fold” could even hold my cellphone or wallet. I’m feeling more organized already.
