6 Gorgeous, Playful & Super Convenient iPad Keyboards

As part of our Doodads for Dads feature, we've decided to delve into the world of iPad keyboards. That's right. iPad keyboards. To fellow 2.0ers the concept of a keyboard for your touchscreen tech might seem unnecessary, but being able to swiftly transform your tablet into a laptop is pretty awesome.


1. USB Typewriter ($699): First up, a serious example of digital meets analog, and the keyboard that inspired this post. This USB typewriter can hook up to your iPad, or any laptop. Keys that don't exist on typewriters (aka F1-F12, esc, ctrl) are available with a simple toggle key making it a fully functional computer keyboard.

2. Aluminum Bluetooth Keyboard Case ($27): On the other end of the spectrum, we have this rather bare bones aluminum keyboard case. It protects your iPad, and includes a keyboard. This is probably the most practical item here, but also matches seamlessly with other pieces of Apple tech.

3. Walnut Writing Center ($139): How gorgeous is this? We love the coupling of tech with handcrafted wooden objects, and this walnut writing center is no exception. You'll have to buy the keyboard separately, but we think it's worth it to be able to carry a beautiful mobile office wherever you go.

4. Typi Folio Case and Wireless Keyboard ($79): Soft felt, handcrafted leather, and muted tones. This cozy iPad case keeps your tech safe, and includes a removable keyboard. The keyboard stays in place with magnets for laptop-style use, can be detached for remote use, or can be left at home when you know you won't need a keyboard.

5. Hardwood Desktop Workstation ($89): Another installment of handcrafted analog love from Etsy, this workstation has a lovely antique aesthetic that can be both startling and comforting when paired with your iPad. This does not actually include a keyboard, but is fitted for Apple's standard Bluetooth variety.

6. Hatch & Co. Skinny Case ($75): Oh hey there fellow & Co. company! This case is super slim with a keyboard that connects via Bluetooth. The cover utilizes Smart Cover sensor technology, meaning it automatically wakes up your iPad or puts it to sleep when you open and close the case.

Bonus Round! Professional SynthStation Keyboard with iPad Dock ($269): Is this the kind of iPad keyboard you were looking for? Dock your iPad and channel your inner Mozart, Freddie Mercury, or Will Smith. ;)

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
