… turn your headboard into a ceiling canopy?
Sure, we’ve all seen reclaimed wood headboards, but have you ever seen one quite like this? By adding a few more strategically placed planks, this homeowner created an instant conversation piece and upped the cozy factor in one fell swoop. Better yet? The reclaimed wood canopy offers a hiding place for any electrical wires necessary for those sweet little symmetrical chandeliers.
What do you think? Too much wood, or just enough wow?
You’re flabbergasted, aren’t you? Me, too. I can’t quite speak to its functionality, but I will say that this rocking bed design is out-of-this-world beautiful.
Designed by Shiner International’s Joe Manus, the bed can be cemented in place with rubber stops, or left to rock the night away. Available as an indoor/outdoor piece, I can only imagine what a statement it would make in any space.
Of course, this unique piece will set you back a pretty penny: $3,000 to be exact. A small price to pay for mobile dreaming, yes?

Inspiration can be found in the most unexpected places, as was the case when I stumbled upon a storefront that was styled in the most genius manner:
Post 27 recently hosted a gallery event in their retail space entitled Vignette. The result? Dazzling vintage ephemera and classic furnishings paired together in a swoon-worthy combo.
My favorite look is the above image featuring clipboard wall art, quirky typography and a fall-inspired color palette.
Ahhhh, this will be one for the tear sheets indeed.
Sometimes all it takes is a subtle, inexpensive alteration to make a room come alive. Take this space, for example:
You see it, don’t you? A giant ball of thick yarn hanging from an otherwise-overlooked chandelier creates just the right amount of drama and movement to make you look twice. I can almost guarantee you have something hangable in your own home that will cost zero bucks for a massive impact.
Why not give it a go?
p.s. Any surprise details you like to showcase in your home? Share below!
You know that pile of laundry that sits on your bedroom floor? The “not-quite-dirty-enough-to-be-laundered” but certainly “not-clean-enough-to-be-placed-in-the-dresser” pile? Surely I’m not the only one.
Enter a quirky, yet genius solution: Dress boys. Take a few of those random chairs you collect, slice them in half and drill them into your wall (landlords beware!) for a fun, impromptu hanging station.
Ah, laziness can be so beautiful.
