7 A Mini Preview from Real Living April Issue

The April issue of Real Living popped into my radar last night and of course I am in love yet once again!  Every little bit of this magazine is oozing with eye candy from real homes to cool little DIY ideas. Love these headboard DIY's to start off.  Above: A wooden frame with drilled holes and a bit of fluro (bungee?) rope.


Below - another clever headboard idea using pegboard (they used three pieces - slightly wider than the width of the bed to provide added impact).  And as they suggest - the pegboard is a great spot to hang photos and small artworks.  (Or maybe even clip a light to it)?

Above: A great little vignette.  Love the home of Jaynie and Nathan Johnson of Blacklist Studio. Their art display especially - all the pieces work so well - and the placement reminds me of the way the late Margaret Kilgallen displayed her work for her art shows. Love.

And some cool finds below from that crazy Favourite Things Pendant (fill it with your favourite treasures) to the Roadie wardrobe from Soundslike Home
