Million Ways To Style A Ladder

Million Ways To Style A Ladder

With limited wardrobe space and about a thousand pair of shoes, I’ve been racking my brain trying to find a stylish solution to my storage problem and then god sent me a pin showing a vintage ladder used as shoe rack. They are perfect display for heels as well as magazines, bags, string lights, jewelry, blankets (there is something called blanket ladder, as it turns out), sunglasses or even pots and pans with hooks. Get one and stop there, I dare you.

The Art of Coffeeing

The Art of Coffeeing

For a long time I didn’t think drinking coffee required any visual aid, coffee is by all means heavenly just as it is. You just prepare it (or order it) smell it and enjoy it. Actually it was the smell I liked the most before I could stand the strong taste and still, even today, I prefer tea over coffee (don’t gasp, I’m Turkish) but day after day I’m getting more and more drawn to caffeine addiction and Instagram has a huge part in it. All the #cotd posts that show up any given time on my feed not only made me want to drink more coffee but also forced me to learn what all those gadgets are and hunt them down, one by one. As some people asked me the coffee maker in my Instagram photos I figured I should make a post about the brands and products to get the perfect coffee shot.

Want a shortcut? %90 of what you see in photos are either Chemex or Hario, everything else is hipster overload.

Curious Case of Metal Grid

Curious Case of Metal Grid

What was the most creative thing you ever did with a piece of grid metal? Mine was using a refrigerator shelf as a drying rack by placing it over a radiator and securing it with big ass books (just moved to Italy, didn’t know any stores nearby and was a student) and I must add that I was pretty proud of my invention. Granted it wasn’t grid but it still counts. Now I realise that I could have used it as a moodboard or a kitchen rack for spoons and ladles and stuff, would have been much cooler. Never too late for anything but I just don’t know where to get these kind of metal grids (I don’t want to deal with a hard DIY). Any ideas?

No Frames, No Worries

No Frames, No Worries

Alternative Photo Framing Ideas

I love absolutely everything about interior styling and I can play with furniture & details all day long, everything but framing and hanging those frames. I know deep down that prints, posters and art should be framed and kept safe that way but for me it’s pure torture, not to mention boring. A year ago, when we moved into our new house, I bought almost 50 frames in various sizes and colors from IKEA with the dream of making a gallery wall but all they did make is a dustball under our bed. Now that I bought the poster I’ve been lusting after for such a long time, I’m looking for some alternative ways to hang prints.

I’m finding these wooden strip hangers perfect for big posters whereas pant hangers or hangers with clips more suitable for small prints and photos. Just want to drill two holes and be done with it? IKEA picture ledges or Urban Outfitters clip strings are your bag. Don’t want to bother with nails at all? Stick them to the wall and add an electric tape in the color of your choice around it et voila!
