These colorful extension cables from Diego Faivre that need to become a standard
Have you ever thought about how boring and lifeless extension cords look?
Well, Diego Faivre has. When needing an extension cord for his art degree show, no less. His solution included coating extension cords in colorful air-drying clay and creating intricate patterns on top of them.

This bed and desk combo concealed by a privacy curtain in K5 hotel in Tokyo
This is the interior of a 1920s bank that was transformed into a stylish hotel by Swedish firm Claesson Koivisto Rune. It is now known as the K5 Hotel situated in Tokyo.
Although the rooms of the hotel are grand and spacious, one piece of the interior can serve as inspiration for small-space dwellers. It is a unique combination of a bed, bookshelf, and a desk. The ceiling-high bookshelf, in this case, doubles as a headboard for the bed as well as a separator for the sleeping area.
Additionally, this space-saving trio is surrounded by a beautiful circular privacy curtain. You can create a similar separated area using some of these ingenious privacy ideas.
