Matchbox wall art at Anthropologie




I thought this was an eye-catching use of some old matchboxes.  Seeing these colorful boxes nailed onto the simple grid made me want to start gathering matchboxes of my own to make some kind of art work.  Anthropologie's creative installations always inspire me and the London Regent Street store has some fantastic displays.

This is a cute idea. I collect matchbooks but they're just sitting in a big box. It makes me want to do something with them too.

It just shows you that putting together a collection in one place is always more striking (pun intended!) than having it scattered throughout a space.

There is someone very creative working on the displays at Anthro!
