DIY The Room
Create a cozy bedroom inspired by the Dutch word "knus" for #DIYTheRoom with C.J. M.
Great Britain has "cosy", Denmark has "hygge" and in Holland we have "knus". My idea of "knus" is a place that's inviting, with natural materials like wood and cotton fabric, comfy seats, warm quilts and lovely colours. A bit rustic and not too "perfect", with some whimsy here and there to make you smile. In short, all the things that make a house a home...
Recreate Ed Sheeran's bedroom in #DIYTheRoom with John from The Art Dream.
Lately Ed Sheehan has been blowing up the radio with his trendy, catchy tunes, and they’re all a great listen, how could you not be a fan?! i had this amazing singer/songwriter in mind when i put together the projects for this inspired room, I’d imagine Ed Sheehan having a home filled with rustic pieces and soft lighting. i pictured a modern but hip musical influence as well. I’d most certainly decorate my home with a bit of Ed Sheehan suave!
Recreate the bedroom of Buffy The Vampire Slayer in #DIYTheRoom with Kim from Chimmyville.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer was one of the first fandoms I fell in love with, and I'm still a little obsessed with it! So recreating the style of Buffy's room was an easy choice. Buffy's room is girly and elegant with a mix of colourful fabrics, butterflies and of course a weapons chest and Mr Gordo.
Recreate the room of Rachel Chu from the movie Crazy Rich Asians in #DIYTheRoom with Lydia from Willow & Clementine.
My room is for Rachel Chu from Crazy Rich Asians. The style is a mix of fun and contemporary because Rachel is a free spirited and strong woman living in New York City. I love how the style is simple, chic, and with a pop of uniqueness here and there. The reading bench and the secret floating shelf is used not only to save space, but also to be functional. The decorations from the wreath to flowers and banner are just simple decorations to bring out the girly charm Rachel has. The side table, poof, and pom pom rug are for when Rachel has guests, so they have a place to set their food aside or sit and lay their feet down. The tray is when Rachel wants to cozy up in bed with a nice warm cup of tea or snacks with a good book. Lastly, the memo board is used to note ideas or hang decorations, just simple ways to spice up the room and feel personal and like home in a big city like New York. Overall I love how the style displays Rachel's open minded personality with a modern woman touch.
Recreate Christine McConnell's creepy kitchen from Christine McConnell's Curious Creations in #DIYTheRoom with Pam.
Zap your kitchen back from the dead by joining together beautiful mid-century decor with slightly sinister accents. Christine McConnell's work space looks cookie-cutter perfect at first glance, but the longer you look around her kitchen the more macabre it turns. By mixing the clean pastels of the 1940's with a few darker eerie pieces you can quickly change the feel of your kitchen to get you in the mood to make some curious creations of your own.
Create a rustic decor look in #DIYTheRoom with Lisa from Recreated Designs.
The calm and quiet of this room evokes the remembrance of a simpler era gone by while drawing in the rustic style of nature.
Recreate the bedroom of Miss Piggy from The Muppets in #DIYTheRoomMeredith with Meredith from The Papery Craftery.
Ever since I was a little girl, I've been fascinated by The Muppets. I love the craftsmanship of all the puppets and their unique personalities, especially Miss Piggy. She is so over-the-top and dramatic; very much the opposite of me. With this room, I'm indulging my ultra-girly side to make it perfect for this diva. I've chosen soft fabrics, a glam mirror, lots of pink and a bit of gold. Plus, a few adorable plush doughnuts, because this lady loves her sweets!
Sheila puts together the decor in #DIYTheRoom for her dream home.
've chosen things I would like to make for my own house. But only in my dreams, because my husband and i have very different tastes. Im all about colour and pattern and he isnt! I chose the crystal hanger because i love it and i do have things like this in my office/craft room. The boho ottoman is because my own is threadbare and needs to be replaced. The side tables would be perfect next to my armchair, which would be decorated with the cushions....again lots of colour and pattern. I bought some lovely carved oak dining chairs off Ebay but the have dull green velvet seats so I need to reupholster them. I am short so use a footdtool to reach high shelves al the time. The soap dish is for my husband to make. I bought him a carving and whittling set last Christmas and he's hardly used it! The desk organiser is for me. The fact that it has multiple layers is ideal because it gives more storage space and the thread organiser will stop my threads becoming tangled in my sewing box.
Recreate the bedroom of Jane Austen in #DIYTheRoom with Kristin from Perfectly DeStressed.
I am a lover of literary classics. Jane Austen is one of my most beloved authors. Her books are charming and witty. When I think of what her personal spaces would have looked like, I imagine them as being very romantic and fancy, full of floral whimsy and many books piled in baskets and stacked in misshapen piles. I picture a quaint room with dreamy character.
Create the perfect room for your cat in #DIYTheRoom with Sophia aka The Dark Vixen.
Cats are amazing. They don’t judge us at all. They comfort us greatly when where sad, whether with a reassuring lick or a rub of the head. They give us so much yet need so little. Here are some projects I’ve chosen inspired by cats that you can make in celebration of these cute and loving creatures.
