This is the grown-up way to decorate your space with posters

Wilder California Beverly Hills Banana Tree Art Print, starting at $19, available at Urban Outfitters.

We'll be frank, there's a right way (and a very wrong way) to do posters in your home. Especially if you've reached adulthood -- you want to make sure to invest in prints that will read more mature than its counterparts (i.e., ditching the movie and puppy posters). But that doesn't mean you have to get rid of the idea of posters for good.

Some minimalistic prints, like the Wilder California one pictured above, can give your home a cool Bohemian aesthetic. An added decor bonus is that the sky's the limit when it comes to displaying the pieces: you can put them in frames, you could cleanly fix them to the walls, or you could even use old-school clips (as seen above). They also make for an awesome DIY project to get your decor juices flowing.

Starting at just $19, these prints are the easiest (and cheapest) way to to deck out your apartment or home.

Okay, so I don’t have a guest bedroom, and definitely won’t anytime soon, but when I do, I think this mid century daybed is definitely the way to go. To sum it up: 1. Cover your box spring with a cute cover or sheet. 2. Attach mid century legs. 3. You’re done. There are no more steps. 


This would also be a great solution for a studio apartment, just sayin’

Desks always seem to collect knick-knacks, so whether you just need a place to house all your loose items, or you need a mechanism to store your office supplies, these little gold catch-alls are the perfect solution

(Cough. I don’t actually have a desk yet, but when I DO, these are going to be high on my priority list!)

This DIY coat rack is something I’m pretty sure Dot & Bo would sell for like $400. Except the pieces of wood are basically broomsticks you can buy at the hardware store, with a bit of leather wrapping. I mean, really? Please be easier. DIY home decor at it’s finest, guys. I’m determined to find a place for this to go in my apartment.

I’m not even sure this can be considered a DIY seeing as it doesn’t require any steps, but isn’t that the best kind anyway!? 

I love the idea of using wooden crates as shelves on a desk. You could also hang them on the wall! I’m secretly thinking of doing this in our bathroom, but I haven’t shared this with Neal yet. (Shhhh.)

This dipped flatware DIY is an amazing solution for that old second set of silverware you’ve got lying around. Wouldn’t it be cute for entertaining, or a BBQ? And so easy too–just dip, hang, and dry!

I can’t get over how easy this is, and why I had never thought of this previously! Who knew making your own neon word light would be such a snap. 

Although I’m afraid I wouldn’t know which word to use. I think “hello” is a safe bet though, don’t you think? Which word would you go with?

And finally, the little beauties you saw above–gold leaf clipboards! I think this is such a fun way to hang art on your walls, and a great example of how something super simple can make a huge impact! (OR it would make a great little gift, don’t you think?)
