Icoeye pixel jacket for your books

This is Icoeye pixel jacket for your books. Many of us have a huge collation of books stacked at shelves on the wall. But as expected they are all different with different colors and titles on their spine. And somehow this looks chaotic and boring with no global design. But don't worry, Igor Udushlivy comes with unique idea that can help us change all of that. With his Icoeye pixel jacket we can change the boring appearance of our books and make them more fresh eye-catching and even turning the shelves of books into art. The idea is to wrap the books of the same size with his dust jackets (you can find template link at the end of this article ) and at their spine by using big pixels you can composite your slogan logo or just some motive. On the spine you get space for ten pixels vertically, by printing them on different positions and combining them with the books nearby you make the magic. This is great idea and will bring your book shelves to live and make them more interesting. If you like the idea and want to make your own icon shelf just get the template from the author’s webpage. Then print combines the books and enjoy.

The room must feel cozy and makes friendly atmosphere for you and all the people that will be invited inside, guests or visitors.

Very important details in living room are the seating’s and the lightening. The sofa or the couch must be position in that way the people will see each other and will be able to communicate and see others reactions. The lightening must match the whole idea of the interior and the living room must be good lighted. The wall must be simple and not with a lot of accessories maybe one or two centered in the middle. The furniture choice is personal but modern furniture is looking really great. One idea is furniture with polished paint or with leather finish.
