Let’s be real, we all love a good life hack.

There’s nothing better than realizing you’ve been doing something the hard way for legit your whole life and then finally being freed from that evil stress trap. Photographer Arielle Vey also shares our love of taking the easy way out, so she helped us put together a list of five essential home decor hacks that’ll have you saying—”um, am I Joanna Gaines now??”.

How To Put On A Duvet Cover Without Wanting To Scream


1. Turn your duvet cover inside out.

2. Tie the top two corners of the duvet cover to the duvet (oh, so THAT’S what those strings are for!).

3. Tie the bottom two corners the same way.

4. Go to the bottom of the duvet where the zipper is and go inside with your hands/arms and grab the TOP two corners (the first ones you tied).

5. Pull those corners inside out (so now it’s the correct way) and fold over the rest of the duvet cover onto the duvet.

6. Zip closed, you’re done AND you aren’t questioning all of your life choices!

How To Hang Curtains So They Look Super Profesh


1. Before you buy curtains, measure from 5-7 inches above your window frame to a few inches above the ground. Hanging curtains from this height will make your space look bigger, so make sure you buy curtains that are long enough!

2. Hang your curtain rod brackets (or like, make your dad do it) at that 5-7 inch mark you initially measured from.

3. Slip your curtains on the rod et voila—your ceilings look higher, your windows look bigger and you are a boss.
