Fellow UKers with a passion for interior design and furniture might already be familiar with mydeco.com, a super cool home design website. We’re delighted that our friends across the pond can enjoy the same furniture fabulousness when mydeco opens the doors to its U.S. website this week.
With over seven million products from more than 1,200 stores, all conveniently wrapped up in a slick, beautifully designed website, suddenly shopping for a new sofa doesn’t seem like such a chore! In addition to an enormous range of products to shop, mydeco also offers a vast array of inspiring interior images and great articles, but our favourite bit is the addictive design tools that let you create a virtual moodboard or design your own room in 3D.
I think everybody wishes they lived somewhere more spacious. As the occupant of a small but beautifully formed apartment in New York and an ex-editor of a decorating magazine I am here to tell you that small spaces are challenges, not problems! The thing that bothers me much more than a lack of space is a lack of originality in a home. Why have a living room that’s just like everybody else’s? To me, there’s no one “look” that makes a home stylish; it’s more about mixing and matching styles with confidence and bringing a bit of your own individuality to your space. Most people are pretty confident when it comes to their fashion style but somehow it seems harder to translate that into your home. That’s why I’m so excited to be working with mydeco.com to provide inspiration, help, and ideas to encourage people to create a home that’s unique — and why I love handmade, original pieces from places like Etsy.
This one-of-a-kind Butterfly Bash Footstool would make any store-bought armchair look unique. I love that ReclaimTheThrone takes vintage pieces and give them a new lease on life by recovering them in new fabric. $95.
shoshonasnow’s ceramics are permanently on my wishlist. The textured surface isn’t too perfect and makes them so much more interesting. This Mod Porcelain Vase would be great to display flowers. $21.60.
Wall decals are a really simple way to transform any boring wall into something unique. I’d love to wake up and see this Birch Forest from walldecors towering above me – what a great headboard idea. $79.
I love discovering designers from across the world on Etsy and I’m really pleased to have found smilaprojekt from Germany. How incredible would this Flower Print Lampshade look hanging over a dining or kitchen table? $120.
It’s such a thrill finding that piece in a junk store that you know is going to look amazing when you get it home. uglysanta picks the good stuff, like this Mid Century Danish Lamp, to save you rooting around the car boot sales. $25.
Tea towels like this wonderful Printed Owl are elevated to an art form in theheated’s store. These are almost too pretty to use. I might frame a couple — they’d look great in pairs in white frames! $11.
Bamboo chairs bring a real sense of Hollywood glamour to a porch or patio — these Faux Bamboo Vintage Chairs are just as pretty as the real thing, but more affordable. I’d like to fill my home with every single thing from wrightathomevintage — they’ve curated a wonderful selection of mid century pieces. $350 each.
