We came across some fantastic photos from the recent Pop Up Shop for Where The Wild things Are and although the show, clothing and concept are all quite awesome in their own right, we found ourselves looking past the sale pieces and focusing on the decor and diy ideas to be had. Details and links after the jump... The Pop Up Shop recently opened at Space 15 Twenty in LA. Instead of just hosting an "art on the wall" type exhibit (although the art on the wall was ridiculously awesome) the space was decked out woodland forest style, branches were brought in, as were stumps and stools.
We love the look of the branches against structured brick, especially because they aren't sitting "displayed" in a vase or feel manicured, there are just piles of sticks and logs in random places. Some are even crafted through shelving units, also made from wood, giving the entire place a log cabin meets industrial feel. The layered woods (stumps, limbs and plywood) bring warmth to what could be a large and cold space.
We especially love the mountains and shelters created from large amounts of short small sticks. The same look could be recreated in your own home, used as a space dividing panel if you're looking for something large, or on a mirror or picture frame if only have space for something small. Add a hot glue gun to the mix and you're craft project ready!
There's tons of inspirational photos from the event, some of which can be found over at Flickr (here and here) & Kitsune Noir and We Love You So. Make sure you head over and check them all out, we found ourselves staring at the computer screen all googly eyed for more time than we care to admit!
