Your passions are, for sure, influencing your lifestyle, but we have to ask you: have you ever wondered if there is a connection between furniture and hobbies? And by connection we mean, for instance, the giant bookcase a literature lover would buy and the perfect entertainment area for a technology-savvy. Today we are going to discuss this connection exactly, one that can make your furniture turn out unique, funny and, sometimes, a bit eccentric.
If you love board games, you could create a scrabble-themed room in your house, as you can see in the inspiration-design below.
You could choose sofas whose upholstery imitates the tile holders and pillows with letters printed on them (imitating the tiles, of course). If you don’t find pillows like this, don’t worry, you can paint the yourself. The atmosphere is very playful and it will be fun to exchange messages by rearranging the pillows on the couch, not just by using sticky notes on the fridge.
If you find it too expensive to invest in this type of furniture, you can also go with the cheaper version, using just the pillows.
Create a message in every room using letter-printed pillows. These are not just a decor addition, they are also practical and fun. Or you can build a coffee table using the same theme. See below.
This is really simple. As a table, you can use almost anything. A pallet, an old chair or even that table you forgot in the garage a few years ago. If the support you chose is made out of wood, you will have to polish it first. Carefully stick the scrabble pieces onto the surface. For a nice look and also for a better fix, apply one layer of finish and leave it to dry at least 24 hours.

Using the scrabble idea, you can easily extrapolate. Who knows, maybe you are a Monopoly fan.
