Offering an extensive range of art from artists and designers, along with thier own in-house design studio, they churn out a range of unique canvases that will add that extra pizzazz to your space. It is possible to have a creative decor on a budget. It may not be by-way-of [insert fine art gallery here], but budget shoppers need not sacrifice stylish interiors!

They also offer one-of-a-kind wallpaper that you can paint yourself (must see the Wood and Taylor ‘frames’ wallpaper), Lovely Hemingway and whimsical Kate Larsen wallpaper, $25 ceiling medallions, and nature-inspired digital murals that are oh-so-realistic!

Your accessories speak volumes about you. Your attention to detail. Your great sense (or not) of style. Why carry around a BIC when you can sign your next John Hancock with a flashy pen designed by Andrea Branzi, Aldo Cibic, Nathalie Du Pasquier, Marco Zanini, Michele De Lucchi and others at Acme. Good pens, neatly arranged in a snappy pencil pot on your desk, add some flair to your workspace, too. They’re quite a decorative element, even a Lotta Jansdotter tote hanging casually over your chair adds flair to your space, at least in my opinion.

For some swanky pens, Acme is your place. Known as “The Swatch of the pen business”, you’ll have no problem selecting from their collection of over a hundred designs. Great business card cases, cuff links, pencil pots, and other accessories are offered by hip little Acme, too.

BUDGET TIP: For budget options, you can also find terrific pens at Target from their Sensa line. They can’t touch the quality of a Cross or Acme pen, but if you tend to lose your pens a lot, a jazzy Sensa may do the trick, and be a much more affordable option for you.

Deadly Squire

Tim is a punk rocker. Anna, a painter. Together, husband and wife duo, Tim and Anna Harrington, launched Deadly Squire, a distinctive collection of products for the home that you can purchase online at the ever-fabulous Design Public.

Interesting crossover, from punk rock and painting to home accessories, but hey, it works for me! Whoever said you had to grow up and follow one path in life was completely bored – why limit yourself! Some of my favorites from Deadly Squire include…well everything! The pet beds (I want that cutie dog!), tote bags, table linens, pillows… Enough from moi, just enjoy, already!
