We first learned of NYC based designer and organizer, Audrey Sturdevant, during an interview with Urbio’s Co-founder Beau Oyler. When we asked Beau about interesting ways people were using Urbio products, he was quick to point out Audrey’s Instagram account.

And it’s no wonder why!

 

Audrey’s Instagram feed is chock full of Urbio. From attaching Urbio vessels to original brick, to nestling them into green “living” walls, Audrey has found creative ways to get clutter off of floors and tabletops and onto the wall.

 

“Living in a pre-war building in NYC, most of my walls are brick,” says Audrey. “My first ever Urbio project was on exposed brick using the wall pucks. With no green thumb, at the time, I instinctively used nearly weightless faux grass. Soon after, springtime came and I added fresh flowers. Our old brick walls became … a floating garden.”

Audrey has used Urbio in every room in her home, and has learned plenty of lessons along the way. Here Audrey shares 5 Tips for Designing with Urbio:

 

01. Don’t be afraid of size. Those magnets are strong!

 

02. Absolutely every plant, flower, cactus or succulent will look amazing in white.

 

03. Greens are fabulous in every room of the house (try an Urbio herb garden in the kitchen).

 

04. Think outside the dirt. Urbio is a “container” after all, and it can hold just about anything. I have put Urbio to work in dozens of homes as an organizing tool. From nursery to dressing room vanities to home office – Urbio is ideal.

 

05. Paint it… the wall plate that is. I used myself as the guinea pig. I was transitioning my son’s room from baby to big boy and wanted to incorporate Urbio… of course! He was going on 3, and I told him he could choose the accent color. He chose gold. The plates took the spray paint perfectly. The ‘wide mouth’ Urbio vessel currently holds his favorite bedtime stories.
