I wanted to quickly drop in today to tell you about a beautiful product I have discovered and bought from Houseology for the nursery (hoping to show you a few snaps of the baby’s room next week, by the way, but I’m being defeated by the horrendous light at the moment so taking pictures is proving tricky). I bought the marshmallow coloured Cable and Cotton lights for the room and needed something to hang them on and I came across The Dots, which are beautiful coat hooks designed by Muuto. I bought three – two small and one medium in oak but they come in lots of different colours and finishes and it could be really fun to play around with the sizes and colours to make a unique display. The beauty of these hooks is that they are both practical and lovely to look at. Here is a bit of inspiration for how to arrange the hooks and where to use them…
The obvious place to use the Muuto dots is in the hallway for coats, bags, hats, umbrellas. An odd number of hooks works best and leaving enough space between them to hang what you need to without covering up the one below. They look great at different heights and would be nowhere near as effective if hung in a row.
Kitchen and bathroom
Another great use of the dots is to use them more creatively as door or drawer knobs. The first time I saw them was on an Instagram picture (I can’t for the life of me remember whose account though) and they had been used on the drawers of the IKEA daybed that we have bought and it looked amazing. I love how they have been used in this kitchen and bathroom…
It was this image that have me the idea to hang a string of lights on the dots and I know that once the baby’s room fills up with toys and ‘stuff’ there will be plenty to be draped over the three dots that I have bought.
These hooks would make a great Christmas present, if you are still looking for last minute ideas – you can buy them separately or a set of five. I’ll have another gift guide for you at the end of the week for stocking fillers and then pics of the baby’s room next week.
