Press-On Design: The Candy Room

August 28, 2012

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:
    Love it.

    I love this idea! It looks like a half finished colouring book page. Fun!

    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!

    It reminds me abit of the home that 101 woonideeen (dutch magazine) made at the woonbeurs in 2007

    this is amazing!!!!

  • Reply Beth August 29, 2012 at 4:21 am

    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!

    The black and white is cool, but OMG… the candy! I would die of happiness in there (and then faint at the next dentist visit!) LOL!

  • Reply Priti August 29, 2012 at 11:46 pm

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