01 Jul Best Independent Etsy Designers; get the Pinterest Home of your Dreams
At Vita Hair & Beauty we spend our fair share of time gazing at images of gorgeous homes that are plastered all over the internet. Perhaps most of all, Pinterest; the place we spend our late sleepless nights, browsing images of perfection. We’ve all got that ‘home decor inspiration’ board – most likely comprised of sleek, white minimal designs with metallic geometric pieces and plant terrariums which have been all the rage lately, or bright rooms full of bursts of colour and unique artistic designs, crammed full of beautiful textiles. Or maybe a mixture of both. And this is something that Etsy designers have picked up on too.
These lovely homeware pieces are so often ripped off on the high street – creating cheap versions of original designs, cheapening the aesthetic until they’re just pretty plain. Just browse Urban Outfitters or John Lewis ‘home’ section to find the lampshade of your dreams….oh wait, it’s £200 and looks like everything else we’ve seen lately. We’ve gathered a collection of some of our favourite independent Etsy designers, who provide stunning pieces but all with a unique quality. These are pieces you definitely won’t find on the highstreet.
