I’m always looking for a way to keep those special photos and invites out of reach.
There’s nothing worse than searching around for an invite on the day of the party, only to find it mangled and half-chewed.
Forget the old cork pin boards and trade up to the unique designs of AL+EM by Aussie sisters Alice and Emma.
AL+EM make contemporary and stylish wall art and pin boards in a range of shapes and colours. They have a felt-like appearance and are made from sixty per cent recycled materials.
The pin boards come in circles and rectangles, making them ideal for kitchens and studies, or for tweens. Then there’s the animal and airplane shapes for smaller kids’ rooms.
My pick is the elephant, which comes as a pin board or wall art. Its minimalist silhouette design will suit both boys and girls. A handy gift for an expectant mum who is keeping the sex of her baby a secret.
There’s also the bunny, bird, airplane, cow and sheep – all so fun. They create a real talking point in any room.
These funky wall art designs can be used on their own or grab more than one and line them up for a border effect. And they are easy to hang with 3M Command picture hanging strips, which you can buy at supermarkets or the AL+EM site.
Pin boards start at $89.95 and wall art is priced at $22.95. AL+EM ship everywhere in Australia, plus New Zealand and the US. Buy direct from AL+EM or browse their list of stockists in Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia.
