Etsy Shop Love – DesignK

Hello, DesignK!

There is nothing more comforting than my morning tea so there is no surprise I am also loving these ‘Tea for One’ tables.

I’ll have one in every colour please.







“Inspired by the colors and shapes in a bouquet of flowers, DesignK’s Tea for One Table is a cheery design choice for a range of interiors. Use its crayon-bright colours to play up a modern white room, or update a traditional home by scattering a few amongst those leather club chairs.”

Please visit DesignK for more information or to purchase the tables here.

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:
And here are some amazing RAST hacks DIY style:
What RAST hack do you prefer?

On Target

While out on my saturday afternoon shop I couldn’t help but stroll into my local Target store to see what homewares they had on display. Target have some great homewares for the budget conscious, but unless you have an eye for design and interior styling, its hard to know what might work well in your home.

For example, the cushions they sell are displayed in your standard store shelving, stacked up together and the accessories are just piled on top of one another without any thought to how the items will look to the customer.

So… with my phone in hand and my creative cap on I started to rearrange some of the homewares and accessories to make them look a bit more enticing. Here are a few of the pictures I took.


These cushions together make a great combination. Chevron print with bold colours.


Team these with a rich red throw and voila, a great combination for either the living room sofa or on top of your bed.


I loved some of the prints they had available. This typo print works well for most interior styled homes.


This print had such amazing pops of colour. I just had to take a pic (Oh, and it was 20% too!)20130318-145328.jpg


These display domes were displayed empty, so I took one of the planters and popped it in. Looks much nicer.

And you wouldn’t believe, but while I was rearranging, styling and taking these pictures other shoppers were following me and looking at my displays. See, all Target needed was a bit of styling love!
