We see so many wonderful ways to incorporate handmade goodness throughout our lives these days. Fashion, food, art, and functional products are widely available. But what about those larger projects? I studied interior design in college and have worked in the field for several years. Because of this, I was wondering how easy it would be to decorate an entire room through a handmade venue such as Etsy. And guess what?! You absolutely can.
Here is a room I have designed with products found on Etsy.
Every room has to start with a great piece of furniture. My virtual living room would have this as it's star.
|Dragon Slayer Sofa - $2900|
And to sit in front and beside
|Classic II Coffe Table - $450 Walnut Side Table - $425|
Next to all of this, put two of these
|Red Eames Chairs - $125|
Then underneath it all, and hanging on the wall
|Shag Rug - $400 Doggie Drapes - $150|
Lovely accents to make us happy
|Green Sky Painting - $75 Modern Wall Shelf - $59.95|
And finally, let's light it up!
|Botanical Drum Shade - $89.95 Buddha Lamp - $200|
Now... let's see it put together with a little watercolor to help us visualize.
See! Etsy is a great place for handmade and vintage interior design needs. And as always, this was just the tip of the iceberg for great finds in the handmade world.
