This week I wanted to talk about a new supplier that I’m working with. I often get asked by clients to source a surface that can be used in a home office or kitchen to pin up ideas, inspiration, and reminders. Or in a kids space like a playroom or bedroom where they can display their beautiful artwork. I’ve used blackboards in kitchens as they are great for making lists and adding reminders. I’ve also used off the shelf cork board and had it framed up to act as a pinboard. These solutions all worked well, but the boards themselves were just a vehicle for the items being pinned up and I always felt that there could be something more attractive out there. I was so pleased to find AL+EM, or rather they found me!
AL+EM make custom designer pinboards that are super easy to install and can be made in any shape, size and a choice of many colours to work with your room. Whether you are looking for a fun piece for a kids room, or something super large for a home office these guys will custom make, your imagination is your only limitation. I’m a big fan of the light grey, it feels like a natural way to go with the material and anything pinned up will really stand out.
I’m also going to be experimenting with AL+EM’s beautiful new range of bedheads. Take a look below at some of the designs, how cool are these for kids rooms? Not only do they soften the wall behind acting as a fab and cost effective bedhead but kids can also pin whatever they like to it. For instance you could hang little lantern lights or fairy lights easily around the edge or pin up several p favourite pieces of artwork.
I’m blown away with how such a simple idea, clean design and quality matierals can have a major impact on a space. For more information check out their website here.
