Tufted Headboard (DIY) I’ve made a couple of diamond-tufted headboards now (Joanna’s was only my second though) and I feel like I have a pretty good sense of the easiest DIY approach now. For another tufted headboard tutorial I did, check out this post. I would say any upholstery job involving tufting is sort of an advanced DIY, but is this project definitely doable (maybe even fun?). Gone are the days when I spend hours mapping out and drilling holes in plywood! I’ve been using pegboard and it is PERFECT for these headboard projects. Cheap, lightweight and sturdy enough.

Writable – Table With Writing Surface by Tianyu Xiao Write on a Table The Writable is a fun and interactive look at how we can spark up the conversation around the coffee table. Three flip panels at the centre house chalkboards on the underside with a chalk discreetly held in place. I love the way it changes the outlook of a simple structure to something more eloquent. Definitely a conversation starter! Unusual and Creative Staircase Designs Collection of unusual and creative staircase designs from around the world.

Lifestyle We will never tire of the positive effects of nature. Its calming, soothing and inspiring influence will never go out of style. The more we rush, the more time we spend indoors staring at our screens and devices, the more urban our lifestyles become, the more we crave and need time away from it all. Art with practical use – the wooden sculptural box by Laszlo Tompa The Hungarian designer Laszlo Tompa presents this simple cube and leaves our imagination do the rest. The wooden sculptural box is crafted by woodturning and finished by hand. The surface of the box is covered with unique geometric ornaments.

FieldCandy Tents Designed To Stand Out FieldCandy tents do not give you camouflage protection in the natural setting, nor do they help you blend in with the rest of the crowd at the campsite. FieldCandy tents are designed to stand out. When we saw the first images of these limited-edition designer tents with their cool flysheets, we had to really stop and think. Is it true that no-one else has manufactured these types of tents for sale before?
