Press-On Design: The Candy Room

Hello gorgeous people! I’m still on vacation but when I came across this article today via Interiors and Sources I know I had to share it with you. This shop in Melbourne, Australia is called The Candy Room and it is unbelievably cool. I love the idea of using black vinyl wall stickers against crisp white as decoration, then allowing the products to shine in all of their colorful glory. This is such a clever concept. You can read more about it here.

Great, right!? You could apply this idea to a kid’s room or playroom at home as well, don’t you think?

See you next week, I’m back to regular blogging on September 3rd!

xo, Holly

    Yep, LOVE this shop. Totally fab. Also think it would be cool in a kids room if the wall drawings could be colored and re-colored! =-)

    Holly, this reminds me of a game called Colorforms from the 50′s: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQNiX6tw96o
    Love it.

    That is absolutely brilliant! Plus, it gives the whole shop a cartoon-y feel that must make everyone feel like a kid in a candy store when they walk in!

    I LOVE it! It reminds me of a trade show booth I designed a few years back. We had an artist paint the details of the home in black on the stark white walls…the only thing in the “house” in color were the textile products the company sold. The following year…everything came to life!

    Excellent concept, especially for kids room. Kids have lots of colorful stuffs in their room, so a white base looks great.

    I LOVE the simplicity of this. I’ve recently been getting into hand drawings again – they have a certain charm to them :)
