Free DIY Furniture Plans: How to Build a Children's Two Tone Chair

Free DIY Furniture Plans: How to Build a Children's Two Tone Chair

On Monday we posted plans for a Children's Two Tone Play Table, and today the most adorable chair to go along side it. I will definitely be building this set, I just can't quite decide who it will be for... the bird or the bug. Probably my older boy, but I'm not entirely sure of my vision for his space just yet. I can finally see the space coming together for the bird, thank gawd, and I can see all of the various pieces I would love to have in his room and it's going to be amazing! Unfortunately he would probably need to move into the master bedroom to make it all of it work so I will be downsizing my 'vision' substantially. Once a dreamer, always a dreamer... Xx... Rayan

2014 Design Forecast: Predictions + Trends

2014 Design Forecast: Predictions + Trends

This might be the first year where my design obsessions and the current state of affairs in the design world, actually align. Fingers crossed this is so, because when the masses jump on board, it's a tad easier to find those items I am coveting. Though this also means I am likely to tire of it a tad more quickly, since it will become style overload for someone like myself who is constantly bombarded with visual inspiration. I for one am over the moon excited to jump on the bandwagon I see coming down the line here in 2014. It appears as though I am not the only one in need of a little less fuss and a lot more calm and soothing in my life, because the movement toward more minimal styling, clean lines and fresh natural elements is beginning to emerge from every corner of the design-osphere (totally a thing). 

But let's talk specifics, shall we?
