Kips Bay Show House: DIY Ideas Part 3

Thursday, May 17, 2012

This week I'm sharing some of my favorite DIY ideas from this year's Kips Bay Decorator Show House:

The new fabric collections from Missoni Home at Stark were the inspiration for this groovy bedroom was designed by Coffiner Ku Design. While I loved seeing all the Missoni prints, I loved the whimsical detail of the cloud cutouts hung over the bed most of all. The designers based the shapes on the clouds from traditional Japanese prints.

You could recreate this look by cutting cloud shapes from plywood or MDF using a jigsaw. Add coat of white paint and some mounting hardware, and you'd have your very own clouds under which to dream. This could be super-cute for a child's bedroom, don't you think?

Mimic Coffinier Ku's shapes or look to woodblock prints, like this one by Katsushika Hokusai below for inspiration for your own cloud forms.
