One of the greatest intersections of design happens when function and taste meet. Even more so is finding the sweet spot between functional kid-friendly toys and tasteful decor. In an age full of plastic, heavily-branded games, and now fidget spinners and glitter slime, it’s hard to imagine a world where toys and games can double as home decor. Unless, that is, you purchase an expensive artisanal alternative, or make your own. So in an effort to balance function and taste, as well as artisanal and affordable, I give you this DIY balancing block game.

Little Luxurious Upgrades: Super Stylish DIY Leather Accents

If you haven’t gathered from one of our previous posts , we love leather. Leather has the ability to really transform a space. Whether you’re going for a rustic look, a bohemian earthy space (check out Atelier de Curiosite’s leather planters above), glam, or simple yet modern, it adds interest and, in my opinion, makes everything feel a little more finished. It takes your home decor from that college dorm room “temporary fix” feel, to more of a “I’m an adult, I’m investing, I’m adding permanence without breaking the bank.” But leather isn’t ageist, so that means these next 16 DIY projects are for you, yeah, you – whoever you are, whatever your age, and whatever skill level and style you possess.

If you’re really lucky, your landlord might give you the thumbs up on painting the cabinet doors, but generally speaking, you’re dealt with a space that can’t be fussed with all that much. Don’t let that stop you from improving the space and keeping it feeling fresh and guest-ready with affordable accents that you can make yourself. Remember, the kitchen is the hearth of the home — from which all things spiral outward — so even if you’re restricted to a less-than-perfect or just downright sad space, don’t overlook your (exchangeable) kitchen accents and accessories.
