RAST Hack

Have you heard of the “Ikea Hack”?
It’s ok if you haven’t… I wont judge. Promise.
So if you are unsure, an Ikea Hack is taking your standard Ikea product and “hacking” it up to create something new and unique. It’s a great concept.
The Ikea RAST (chest of drawers made from untreated pine) is one of the most popular items from the Ikea store that gets the ‘hack’ treatment.
Here is what the original looks like:

So if you want to go one step… ok maybe a few steps left of centre I suggest you take a look at these designs from Wallpaper Republic. You’ll be happy to know you can purchase them all from Down that Little Lane who deliver the wallpaper pretty much anywhere.

But if you’re feeling like a whole wall is a bit too much, you can always cut back the wallpaper and frame them to hang them on your walls. Here’s an example:

The Glass Collection – Stools

As I was looking through some of my favourite online homeware stores I came across these amazing stools:

glass stools

The Glass Collection are designed and manufactured in Australia by designer Keith Melbourne. The stools are available in a range of colours and brings something new to the plastic furniture market. The range comprises of three stools, each design inspired by an iconic glass shape – the Latte glass, the Cognac glass and the Whisky glass. You can find out more about the stools and purchase them online from top3 by Design.

I have created a mood board (below) to show how you could add any one of the different styles and colours as long as you have a fairly neutral base to start with. Enjoy!
