The 9 Best DIY Decor Tips For Your Creative Space

Most of your days (for those motivated enough, or for those under the watchful eyes of their employer) will be spent at a desk, or in a designated workspace. These are places of work and practical application, so it’s understandable that it can, over time, get a tad clinical. Which is a shame, because as we all know that a space which reflects your own eccentricities is a space that you’re more inclined to call yours. So here are nine DIY decor tips for that special space that won’t take time away from getting down to business. Own your creative space, picc your DIY. 1.

Avea: Lightening the Mood

Dynamic mood lighting is an arena that is stereotypically left to public spaces or the apartment of a playboy bachelor and his wily ways. The rest of us generally pay attention to the light bulbs in our homes, when the fuse blows (usually in the middle of eating a delicious taco). Cue Avea from Elgato, a mood lighting bulb that works via an app with bluetooth. You can change the lighting to one of eight preset options, such as Cherry Blossom, or Northern Glow. You can fiddle with the brightness of the preset options, which slowly changes the saturation of their hue depending on the option picked. They also have a selection of solid colors you can pick from, and you can change both brightness and color saturation with the solid colors. If it’s basically a war to get you to wake up in the morning, then the Wake-up Light will…

Ocean Driftwood as Decor

There’s something intriguing about a piece of driftwood don’t you think? An untold tale of where they’ve been, what they’ve seen and if mermaids always have long wavy hair? Click on the image to Picc it. DRIFT is a company that collects stranded driftwood that’s washed up on shores from around the world.

Then, the wood is equipped with powerful magnets, transforming these planks into mounts and shelves for tools, knives, keys, or whatever you fancy really.

Colour Crush: Mint & Coral

When mint first met coral it was love at first sight. Pale pastel mint fell pretty hard for coral’s peachy pop of colour. Although each of these is beautiful on their own, together they are a match made in heaven. This fresh-looking tropical trend has been around for a while but still keeps turning up in fashion, décor and, well, just about everywhere. We found some ahh-mazing examples of this colour combo on Piccing: Fashion mix and match Mixing coral and mint in an ensemble brightens up any outfit. You don’t need to go overboard but just a few subtle hints here and there will liven up your look. Even pairing coral nail varnish with a soft green sweater will compliment each other.

A Love Affair with Ladders

Ladders can offer the most innovative way to store or display your most prized possessions –while adding a little old world charm to your home. They can be used to hang throws, hold books, prop up plants and much, much more. Below are a few of the loveliest things you can do with a ladder: Lovin’ the Leaners Ladders that lean up against a wall are handy to hang bath or beach towels and throws or blankets.

In Full Bloom

There’s nothing quite as nice as filling your home with bunches of fresh flowers. While a good ol’ vase does the trick there are a few more creative ways to display those darling daisies. Bottoms Up Need an excuse to polish off that bottle of red? Wine, Champagne and beer bottles (with easy-on-the-eye labels) make for great glass vases. Just make sure you give it a good clean before popping a few poppies in. Turns out flowers don’t love wine like we do.  Picc your favourite flower images here.
