What we love about the project: We Can’t get enough of copper. We love the use of industrial pipes to create something luxurious. The choice of material is up to you, so you can upcycle something sentimental or find a fabric that perfectly matches your colour scheme.

What we love about the blog:?Run by mother-daughter team Sue and Robyn Britz from Cape Town, Zana has grown into a studio with a small team. Their passion for typography, bright colours and bold patterns makes the blog a fun, inspiring space.

What we love about the project: It starts with the search for a good branch. Whether it’s a wander in the woods or a browse through the backyard getting the perfect branch is key to the success of your creation. We love how Alex has kept the tones neutral and natural for a calming effect, but don’t be afraid to adapt the design to suit your own style.

What we love about the blog: A regular columnist in?our ?Ask the Expert? column, Alex Carberry is a Dublin-based interior designer and DIY enthusiast. She shares affordable and accessible design tutorials.
