Nick Olsen for Domino


Got nothing better to do this rainy Spring weekend?  Channel your inner Nick Olsen with this incredibly chic way of delineating a task specific area in a room or small space. [ by the way, he covered that Lantern with grass cloth himself. Another DIY idea for your bad-ass crafting self ]
Found over on MADE is this great, step-by-step tutorial for crafting a 'Bistro Awning' with a few detail tweaks of your own.

You could do, as Olsen did,  a more 'tented' feel by adding the Greek Key element and maybe a complimentary liner [ he rocked a pale blue in his ] this would be a, seemingly easy way to make a big difference in a room or studio space.
