Add beads to make ugly cables pretty
If there's one thing guaranteed to make a room look chaotic and untidy, it's bare electrical cables but if you're a geeky type, they pretty much come with the territory. So what can you do to make cables look less unsightly?
Aside from pinning them to the walls or going completely wireless, I had thought there was little you could do to tidy up your cables. But this great idea from Nathalie Costes turns the cables into a feature in themselves by threading large beads around the flex. That way, you'll be proud to let your wires hang loose - and you'll save a lot of time in tidying! [Via Free People Clothing]
