I don’t know about you guys, but I’m pretty impatient when it comes to decorating. I want to nail a look in a few hours and not break the bank, but also not compromise on style. It’s a big ask, but I’ve become quite an expert in dipping my toes into DIY in a very lazy-Sunday-afternoon kind of way. With a pinch of creativity and a few tricks of the trade, you can turn pretty much anything into something gorgeous.
The hottest trend in decorating right now is eclecticism: It’s all about a medley of styles where the more artistic and personal the parts, the better their sum. The key with DIY in my book is to make it feel glamorous — and not like a craft project. You want your final product to look as if you could have easily picked it up from a cool downtown antiques store or gallery, and it's surprisingly easy to get that kind of result. All my quick and dirty tricks, ahead.
