Do you believe in love at first site? I do, I spotted this months Pin-Up among several pretty images on NiftyNeat’s Etsy store and fell in love. As you know I am a sucker for books as decor, so when I was looking through NiftyNeat's nursery and decor designs I thought the cloud mobiles were perfectly sweet and thought the geometric metal shapes were totally cool. But what really caught my eye were the dangling, artfully crafted, custom book mobiles.
The technique of rolling or scrolling pages has also been a look I am slightly obsessed with. I have seen this sort of styling with the pages of books in shop windows like the fashion forward merchandising of Anthropologie. I’ve always wanted to use it somehow in a bedroom. There is something so whimsical, sophisticated and beautiful about the playful scrolling book pages.
I’m always looking for ways to sneak in books into a child’s space in addition to tons of reading books of course. These fanciful book mobiles would look at home in a nursery over a crib, changing area or obviously over the glider where you will read books daily to your baby? Of course they are not limited to a nursery. Any child or teen room would look book smart with these dangling over their desk or reading nook.
Each mobile is made-to-order in various colors. Cost per book is $30. If you are looking for a specific book or theme of books to showcase NiftyNeat will also hunt down the book/s of your choice to transform.
Already have the books you want to be used? Mail them to NiftyNeat and they will be turned in to literally, literary works of art.
