home: made [ painted basket ]

It might seem pretty straight forward, but painting pieces of furniture and accessories yourself does take a bit of prep and time.

We found this great tutorial for spray painting an old wicker basket. Updating it with a new colour and handle will give it a new lease of life.

When there’s only a small budget and you want to update a look of a kitchen or bathroom, when the home is rented or you’d rather not a permanent design change or you fancy a quick and easy update to your tiles; tile stickers are a quick easy way to go with so many patterns and styles now available across the high street and online. 

Colour designs from DaWanda

We love the bright coloured patterns from SirFaceGraphics, the minimal clean modern look from the stickers at josiecrafts on eBay and for a unique look head to Love Maps On for beautiful map image tile stickers (see main picture)

home: found this [ door range ] 

We are a little excited about a newly designed range from IKEA. With colour and pattern ticking major trend boxes the new KALVIA door range (for kitchens or other storage cupboards around the home) is perfection. 

As kitchen doors are standard size it’s easy to update doors and this range is a winner. Pair with pure minimal white interiors, combine with white doors or be brave and compliment with dark wood work tops and rich dark tones on the walls. 

Prices per door from £40
