The easiest ways to add touches of the handmade to a clean, minimalist kitchen is to get creative. We partnered with Bosch Home Appliances to share cozy DIYs that'll complement modern homes and appliances, like this electric range.

Now that the last of the decorative gourds have been swept off stoops and tables, the holiday season has officially embraced its winter wonderland side. That is, it's about to be dark and freezing outside so you're going to want to warm up your insides—bellies (hi, soup!) and interiors both. As a person who gets an inordinate amount of pleasure from tying bows, particularly big red ones—I know, I'm sorry—I admit to being biased in favor of winter DIYs. But here's the thing: They can add so much coziness to a blank space.

A makeshift pot rack from a little bit of pipe, like in the image above, adds a handmade element that's still clean and minimal.
