A brilliant idea for hiding your router, a one-of-a-kind lighting fixture, a play tent DIY, a free printable for your gallery wall and an inspiring idea to add a touch of WOW to your furniture.

Necessary electronics can be an eye sore in a decorated room. Take routers, for instance. To get the best signal, it was to be placed in a central location—which means the blinking box almost always ends up predominantly displayed somewhere in your home. Anamu had the same problem—until her partner in crime had the idea of disguising the router with a vintage book. Genius!

This unique wall lamp, Klimoppe (approx. $140), certainly caught our attention this week! Available from Studio Snowpuppe on Etsy, the set brings everything you need to install with the moth lampshade and cord in the color of your choosing. It’s definitely a statement piece and the craftsmanship looks stunning.

Lier of ikat bag shared her DIY of a hallway tent for her girls, using tension rods! It’s great for small spaces, easy to set up and take down, and stores practically anywhere. Sounds like a win-win to us.

Gallery walls are all the rage in the decorating world, especially when it comes to nursery decorating. Here’s a free printable LOVE poster—available in blue, green and pink— from Crisp Family to add to your gallery wall. It’s bee-utiful!


We love unexpected details! This gray dresser by New Traditionalists, featuring dresser drawer sides painted in a vibrant red, is a great source of inspiration for your next DIY dresser project (found via Little Green Notebook).
