RENOVATE

More Ikea Hacks(?)

It’s that time of year again, for the Apartment Therapy “Smallest Coolest Apartments Contest”. One of my favorites this round is Victor & Soeun’s Romantic Loft.
It looks like their “pod” is made with a combination of translucent plastic and what looks to be the glass doors for the Akurum cabinets from Ikea*. This is a great solution for an enclosed room because the walls aren’t the standard 4-6″ thick and the translucence allows for privacy yet doesn’t close the space in.

$234.00 [link to retailer]

You can buy the doors separately in the kitchen department.

*Actually, on closer inspection, it looks like the hinges are on the outside, so they’re probably not the Akurum doors, but if you don’t have the stomach for making your own doors, they would be a quick and easy solution.

Pop Wall coverings

I found this today at Design*Sponge. I know there are lots of wall panel options today, but frankly, some of them are kinda cheesy and will look really funky in an “avocado green appliance” sort of way soon. But I believe that the pop wall panels are classic in the 60′s design sense and I think it would look great and textural on one wall perhaps in the living room or bedroom.
