Graph Cork Board

Like these graphic, silk screened cork boards? You could easily point-and-click purchase them and no one will think less of you because, hey, you’re busy, and it’s nice to have a little pattern on the wall. Or, you could go to your local craft or office supply store and buy some regular cork board tiles (like these on Amazon), mask each corner half off with painter’s tape and paper, and then spray or brush on black paint to create the same sort of look. Remove taper/paper and ta-da! You have your patterned cork board. It’ll take a little more time, but it’ll save you a little cash.

Giant Valentine’s Day Posters

It’s Valentine’s Day, whoop-do-doo, right? No time to get a gift if you’ve not done it already, and sorry, but a stuffed bear and flowers definitely do not count as a thoughtful gift. Now, a giant poster, on the other hand, that’s something to hang on the wall. And a cost of $5 and approximately 15-20 minutes to print it out at your local print shop? That’s a very small price to pay for the big smile you’ll get once that certain someone unrolls it. Download the images at Oh Happy Day.

“Mates for Life” Print

If a simple ‘I love you’ has lost its meaning, you better come up with something fast to get your message across. Let’s not discuss that awful holiday fast approaching, as it’s merely an excuse to buy horrible chocolates and flowers (soon eaten and wilted, respectively), but let’s do think about this print from Jacqueline Schmidt of Screech Owl Design. She has illustrated a few very special species that mate for life, and if you decide to buy this as a way to show your affection/admiration/attraction, all you’ll have to say after your loved one opens it up is “and us, of course.” And then, “what frame do you want for it?” So romantic. There’s also a lovely “Celebrate the Alphabet” Poster, $40, available with animal illustrations in color, perfect for a child’s room (or for yours if you really love animals and the alphabet).

Domestic Wall Sticker Animals 2

If you happen to remember the Forêt Noire Scenic Wallpaper, you might recognize some of these little guys. Designed by the same Nathalie Lété, these vinyl wall stickers are sure to keep you in good company. They’re self-adhesive and could be an excellent alternative to wallpaper wherever you want- and don’t go putting these in the ‘only suitable for kids’ box. In fact, you are hereby challenged not to put these in a kid’s room- scatter them throughout a hallway or wherever else they look at home.

DIY Kits from Haptic Lab

Remember Haptic Lab’s Great Lakes Quilt that was featured last week? If you like the look of a modern city quilt and are known to be handy with a needle and thread, think about purchasing one of their DIY kits. Choose from several cities- each basic kit comes with a 36″ x 42″ single-use map template and sewing instructions while a full kit ($74) includes the material and thread in ivory as well. Choose your own fabric with the basic kit and you’ll have a nice project to work on with a one-of-a-kind end result (that would make an excellent gift, by the way, but after all that work, everyone will understand if you decide to keep it for yourself). Keep in mind the 36″ x 42″ size is large enough for a crib quilt or wall hanging.

Cork Map

If you’re running a global enterprise, what better way to show off than with a cork map in your office? I’m halfway kidding, of course, as a cork map might be better suited to a kid’s room than a swanky need-to-impress-clients sort of office. In any case, it’s a cork map, and you could pin all sorts of stuff to it until your heart’s content. Mark where you’ve been, chart your future travel destinations, plan your bucket list, etc.

United States Chalkboard Map

Oh, the various situations where this map would be useful. One: to test your guest’s knowledge of states (Where is Arkansas!) and then get depressed at how little they know. Two: to mark the states you should never ever visit due to their political atmosphere. Three: to plan your escape should your family encounter imminent danger, though that would be foolish considering interstate highways aren’t drawn in. Four: to practice memorization of interstate highways so you know how to escape should your family encounter imminent danger. Etc. I’m sure you’ll think of many more.

“What Good…” Enamel Steel Sign

It’s a sentiment worth considering, whether you need a sign to remind you or not. Hang it near the front door, next to your computer, or maybe even bookmark it as a gift option for someone dear. Taken from Benjamin Franklin’s autobiography outlining his daily employment. See Benjamin Franklin’s daily scheme over at Daily Routines.

The Universe and The Galaxy

There’s nothing like a few space prints to make you look like a complete nerd smartypants, and I’d vote for these two by Mike Gottschalk. They’re inexpensive and impressive with just enough text to put things in perspective. (Pretty perfect for those of us not afraid of being nerds.) These prints are also available framed or on stretched canvases, fyi.

World Map (Black)

Sure, a world map is okay wall art, especially as you can try to absorb something while you’re staring off into space not working, but what about a black world map, that will look even better once you add your own scribbles and notes to it? That would be pretty cool, and a very excellent way to chart your travels around the world.
