Two Wasabi Tape DIYs to Adore

I love DIYs but sometimes they take TMT (too much time) so when I spot one that is unique, fun and fabulous – I go for it. I recently tried 2 awesome, easy and time-friendly DIYs using….

…patterned wasabi tape that elevated 2 simple objects to new decor heights – a phone charger and plain feathers. With the phone charger, just wrap it in your fave design of tape and you have created a brand new vibe for something you use everyday. Next tape idea, take plain old feathers (you can find these at your local art store) and tape the entire shape. Now you have a very cool decor accent for your home.

Have you tried using wasabi tape to elevate the everyday?

When Fashion Meets Furniture

When I spotted this collaboration between Slovene architect Spela Leskovic and fashion designer Almira Sadar over at Design Milk, I knew I was in for a treat. With patterns, textures and lines that are built for swooning, this collection is truly one for the ultimate design lover.

The collaboration celebrates Slovene heritage in a variety of ways, most importantly with its use of crocheted florals. And with its puzzle piece-like modular arrangements, the collection pays homage to design integration at its best.

What do you think? Yay or nay? And are you ready for a crochet break, or do you embrace the handmade movement’s future?

The 5 Minute Storage Solution

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.

5 DIY Ideas Anyone Can Try!

I'm a big fan of the DIY weekend. You know the kind: you sleep in until noon, enjoy a leisurely breakfast, run some errands and happen to stumble across a project that so desperately demands your attention that you spend the rest of your weekend hours in the garage with the miter saw?

Am I the only one this happens to?

Anyway, it may not be the weekend, but these projects would certainly send me to the garage in a tizzy. Why not try a few in your own home?:
