I can not walk past Typo without taking a peek. I just love the novelty items, stationery and their DIY crafty delights. I also can’t enter a store without thinking that I wish it was my job to style the store and come up with the quirky, exciting and fun visual merchandising displays.

But it gets better, I recently discovered that Typo now have a concept store called MADE by Typo in Market Square, Geelong! A gorgeous space completely decked out for creative individuals! It opened in September, it looks amazing and apparently DIY workshops will be launched soon! I need to organise a visit pronto! Check it out.

During my latest trip into Typo I made a few purchases – I could have walked out with boxes full, but I settled on the delightful golden apple pen holder and stag head (but in white), shown below amongst some of my other favourites.

Whilst I didn’t actually purchase the Hexagon box shelf, I love it and was quite excited to see this in Typo, so on trend, and at the incredibly reasonable price of $29.95 for the large and $24.95 for the medium. Check them out here -  (they also sell printed hexagonal paper in a variety of patterns that can be placed in the back). I think I like this idea of shelving because of my love for geometric patterns – anything that tessellates – but also because it provides a point of difference. If you are feeling super patience and are good with measuring angles and a saw you may like to check out this tutorial for Honeycomb Shelves over at the gorgeous blog – A Beautiful Mess.

I shall leave you with some hexagon (more frequently called honeycomb shelving) inspiration for you;
