This practial addition to your bathroom is straight forward in construction made fully of wood [ cedar is a good choice ], and if you have the correct tools, simple to make.

home: trend [ marble ]

We have seen a huge increase in popularity for marble over the last few years and it’s a material that is being used in prety much every homes.

Whether it’s in the form of kitchen accessories, table tops, tableware, printed soft furnishings, marble is such a gorgeous material with a beautiful pattern, you will always feel you have a unique piece in your home.

This year has seen marble mixed with pastels and metalics; copper, brass & gold. We now see marble in a more basic form, appreciating its character without the additions of colour working alongside it.

Table tops are being seen with simple black metal or wooden legs, and vases and accessories apear less fussy. [ Look out for the additions of black & white to compliment a piece ]. And of course this means you can opt for any wall colour you like as you won’t need to worry about clashing tones.

home: trend [ plywood ]

Plywood furniture is nothing new, made popular in the 1950s with design icons like Charles and Ray Eames. The material that was once thought too cheap to be on show is now making its biggest mark on interiors being used on everything from furniture to kitchen cupboards to wall coverings.

The amazing nature of plywood means it can bend and create beautiful shapes, and this is particularly evident in pendant lights. If you are looking for a statement light this coming season, make sure its made of plywood.

Another great way to make a statement is to use plywood where you may not expect. Make cupboard doors in a kitchen or panel a wall in a living room. Let the finish be raw and obvious, no need to cover up with paint.

If you fancy a more subtle approach to plywood try adding in some dining chairs or perhaps a side table or stool. These pieces of furniture can add interest to a room and blend with other trends, like mid-century, monochrome and Scandinavian. You really need to appreciate the design of the pieces you choose, so a less cluttered room is probably best.

If you are looking for inspiration than we recommend a visit to the V&A Museum and their current exhibition Plywood: Material of the Modern World.

This weeks project is this cool hanging shelf; simple to make and adapt to your own design. Using just two basic components, a plank of wood and some rope, and the addition of a jigsaw and drill you are good to go.

In this example the shelf doubles up as a plant holder by cutting out a hole in the wood. This looks great and brings a different dimension to a standard shelf.

The options are endless for personalising your shelf. Paint the wood or use coloured rope to fit with yout interior.
