Sure, corporate design is much different from interior and home design, but these snapshots of Etsy's Headquarters (via Apartment Therapy) are channeling a serious love for patterns, colors and total texture.
I actually had the chance to visit Etsy Headquarters in Dumbo, NY this summer and was endlessly amazed at how kooky it all was, yet somehow — everything fit!
I've always been the biggest fan of quirky, handmade touches in one's home. Whether you have a knack for turning trash to treasure, or just love a great one-of-a-kind item, these ideas are sure to brighten even the dimmest of homes. Try one today!:
Vintage Wine Rack Turned Magazine/Newspaper Holder
Convert a restaurant style wine rack from your favorite spaghetti factory and call it a media rack. You'll look smarter in no time!
Have a few spare crates lying in your garage? Give them a face lift with mid-century-inspired stool legs and some crafty sculpting.
This one's for you, artists! Grab a Sharpie and go to town on the inside of your spice cabinet. May you never forget Aunt Thelma's sugar cream pie recipe again!
The craftiest homeowner leaves no shelving unit unnoticed and that includes over-the-door space! Maximize your organizational techniques with this simple DIY.
Rain Gutter Planters
Have a green thumb with a love for eco-friendly DIY tutorials? Try this rain gutter planter you can install on the side of your home (very ideal for folks with small yards!).
Have a junky dresser with a missing drawer (don't we all?)? Place it in your guest bedroom to allow for towels, trinkets and space for your guests to sprawl. Beware — some may never want to leave after such a sweet welcome!
Proof that handmade touches can be quick and easy [on the wallet!]. Happy nesting!
