home: featured [ Made ]

This is affordable great design to allow interiors to be on trend but mix and match the pieces to create your own unique look.
home: trend [ natural finishes ]
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.

Head to themerrythought.com to be inspired to make this fab desk. Using an Ikea drawer unit as a base with the addition of a wooden table top and a pair of legs, you are good to go.
Obviously you will need to have some basic woodwork skills or at least know someone that has to complete this project, but it’s a great one.
We love the use of the drawer unit, it looks like it was meant to be part of the table and more expensive than it would actually be.
