Want to turn your shelf into an optical illusion? Grab a couple of these pastel checkered vases and planters from @greenbie.decor’s Etsy shop. She hand-paints each one in Melbourne. The gorgeous patterns suit a contemporary and minimalist interior, but could easily work in a colourful boho or eccentric home. We can’t get enough of the lilac pieces, which take us back to the 60s! Which is your fave?
