home: made [ mid century table ]

Why buy a standard bedside table when you can make your own. And no need to make it complicated. This simple mid century inspired table is made from just 4 pieces of plywood and 4 hair pin legs.

This diy make can be adapted to any size table, maybe a coffee table or console will work for you. With the addition of some wood glue, nails and a screwdriver you are good to go.

There are some things that shouldn’t be just for the kids (or maybe not for kids at all). For modernist, midcentury and minimalist fans, Ferm Living have reached new levels of amazing design with this incredible dolls house. 

Ensure the nursery is as stylish as the rest of your home or use as an accessory in another room and display a few well chosen pieces in its rooms (like shelves). 

This dolls house is beautifully crafted from plywood with clean simple lines and if it were a few times bigger we’d all want to move in. 

Available from Ferm Living and stores across the UK including favourite modern children’s boutique Cissywears for around £165. A beautiful investment and piece to hand down the generations.

If you are accessorizing your rooms this Summer, be sure to feature something woven. Its all about the texture and detail.

Consider potted plants in woven baskets and bags, heavy woven cushion covers [ think macrame ] and jute rugs. Adding these pieces into a room will bring an artisan / handmade feel and soften a space.

If you want to make more of a statement choose a woven light fitting [ There are some stunning picks online – try grahamandgreen.co.uk & rockettstgeorge.co.uk ]. Woven chairs are big this season as well, like bold rattan furniture but focusing on a smaller weave.
