I used to be an Etsy seller so I always end up spending unhealthy amounts of time on there; and I feel like the current home decor craze has largely eluded this platform as a go to place for collecting objects to create your ultimate home sanctuary. Have no fear, I’m here to guide you through home decor on Etsy and help empty your wallet.
Handmade Home Decor on Etsy
I think handmade objects has been downtrending a bit since this very clean, industrial minimalist Scandinavian interior decor started to explode and the internet (and Pinterest) basically lost its mind over it. Is this making you itch towards Ikea.com? Don’t do it, because I’m about to show you that gorgeous goodies for your home does exist hand made by artisans all over the world.
Sometimes it may cost a pretty penny, but the good old adage applies here; you’re purchasing a piece of someone’s work that will last likely forever and the price probably made sure you’ve made your selection carefully and lovingly versus a mass market item you bought on a whim because why not? It was under $10. Below are my personal picks that I greatly admire. All images are linked.
This one’s dangerous. The recent trend for all things concrete is biting me pretty hard; these modern pieces are not only gorgeous but functional.
For Your Trinkets
Forever looking to keep my tiny pieces of jewelry off the counters so my beau doesn’t accidentally inhale one, I’m always on the hunt for pretty cases and ring cones. Plus, there’s the bonus of them looking so pretty on your dresser!
Etsy is definitely not the first place you’d think of to go for fabric oriented products but I’m sure these guys will have you looking twice permanently in the future. The matching pillowcases are hilarious.
Glass and Geometry
There’s something about imperfect metal edges and glass that instantly creates a boho / vintage vibe that I’m simply obsessed with. Love their multipurpose function too; they look so pretty with some tossed in air plants or delicate jewelry.
I remember how popular dark marble was in the 80s/90s, white marble is such a great contemporary update. Permanently chic and classy. Love it even more with copper, or anything with a pinkish hue.
These items are practically designer, but good luck finding items elsewhere of this build quality for less than Restoration Hardware prices. These below will give your designer retail decor a run for its money!
Add Some Green
These planters are so gorgeous I think they would be fine with anything in them, but a little nature in your indoor space is never a bad thing.
We all know how difficult/impossible it is to shop ethically made clothing, the same thing largely applies to most consumer products we acquire in retail today. Sometimes digging through Etsy can be incredibly daunting; while the platform boasts a great number of talented artists, there exists the risk of poorly made products or non-handmade items as well. Finding quality is never quick and easy though, and a little time spent on Etsy can pay off big time. See more of my curated nest objects on Pinterest if you liked what you saw!
