home: made [ kitchen magnets ]
Looking for a cute easy project to make some great kitchen magnets? We found three great online projects
First, a fun simple project. Metallics are very on trend so how about getting some colourful alphabet magnets and spraying them with a metallic paint? It’s so quick and effective. They’ll be fun for the kids but still look stylish in your kitchen. Head to Kojo Designs for the full tutorial.
Second, a handy mini storage project. Create magnetic little boxes to pop pens, cutlery, plants or anything else small that might need containing – using vintage tins or tins from certain food products and then attach good strong magnets to them with strong glue.
And third, try hand painting some stones and attach magnets to make handy memo holders! Use geometric designs for a great on trend look and paint with colours to match your interior. Or even add initials on to personalise them.

home: trend [ gold ]
It doesn’t have to be brash or over shiny, it doesn’t have to come across ostentatious or too blingy but this season, gold is the colour to embrace. From the, it seems, permanently on trend, metallics family, gold is a great colour to introduce in small homewares or be bold and embrace layering golds from walls, to floors, to ceramics to soft furnishings. Use either dark tones or soft blush and whites to sit along side.
