We spotted this sleek and simple diy project for a hanging organiser. With the use of some wooden dowels, rope and a drill, you are good to go.

Adapt your hanging ladder to suit your needs and what you intend to use it for. We think it’s great for hanging photos, and art! A lovely idea for adults and kids.

Leather in the home doesn’t have to be restricted to your favourite worn armchair or the odd cushion. Leather is appearing in many more home accessories, furniture and homeware this season.

Leather detailing is big news – trims, edgings, frames, mirror surrounds, and growing in popularity – handles.

The perfect way to update wardrobes, kitchens or a cupboard is with the replacement of the handles – and leather loops or arches are the most on trend way right now.

Leather is great to integrate in many ways – a few frames in a gallery wall, a vase in a cluster or even a leather tray with a collection of homeware on it.
