Design Sponge, has always been at the top of blogging great ideas, diys and projects.

With bamboo being such a favourite material to have in the home right now, we love this bamboo sunburst mirror tutorial.

Simple but very effective. It could be done in varying shapes or sizes. And if a few were made they’d be great grouped together.

home: trend [ distressed glass ]

This year we are seeing a resurgence of antique and distressed furniture and home accessories.

Glass and mirrors have a distressed aged look to them giving them not only an antique feel, but gives interest. This trend can also stretch to the garden with large outdoor paneled mirrors.

You can also see this style on glass to tables, trays and ornaments.

A big trend we are seeing this year and in particular this Summer, is natural finishes.

This stripped back look can be seen on tables, chairs, lighting & mirrors. Of course you probably don’t want to deck out your whole room in eveything pale wood, but just a few of these pieces will mix well together.

If you like a neutral colour pallete or earthy tones are your thing, this is where you can have the most fun. In a dining room a natural finished wooden dining table and chairs can look amazing against a dark green wall or black kitchen cabinets.

In a living room a wooden lampshade can be a lovely addition. The light is often softened and it will certainly be a focal point.

If you choose items that are also untreated then you have the option of painting them at a later date. There are so many great colour choices available.

This stylishly simple bathroom cabinet form Urban Outfitters is a winner. The secret shelving compartment is neatly tucked away behind a sliding rectangular mirror.

Black edging finishes it off with wooden shelving, giving it a contempory look.

We spotted this lovely gold effect mirror in Argos and think it will work with most interiors.

Great for a hallway or in a bedroom, this oval shaped mirror shares a design which is very popular right now, being seen in a lot of stores. But this one is a lot less money!
