Decor Tips Tweet 0 Comment(s)
Decorating your home can be a tedious job if you are to go for the same conventional style decors. Repeating the same old arrangement, buying similar kind of furniture can ruin the fun of doing the interiors.
If we are so sick of doing our house in the complex, stereotype way, why not do something crazy ( which looks good too)? . Afterall, its our home and we have the supreme power to style it the way we want.
If you are still scratching your head for some wacky ideas, I bet this will be a good read.
Traditional libraries at home can scare your tiny tots with that bold, sophisticated look. Decked with huge books with weird titles, these can become a 'no entry zone' for them. But not when you have something like this. A boomerang shaped book shelf with a cavity to sit for a quick read will definitely bring them closer to those books.
2. Jungle in the bedroom
If you are some one who is bored with the sophisticated, monotonous life and want to escape to the woods or streams, a sleep in your new jungle bedroom will give you that peace of mind.
3. Whispering Stairs
When every spot of your house is getting some attention, how come the stairs are left out?
The risers of the stairs make a good space for your creativity. Whether its some catchy lines for the reader or attractive motifs, your stairs have space for them all.
4. Perfumed candles
Usual candles in your house can be turned into one with enticing fragrance by covering them in a bunch of cinnamon sticks or keeping it on a potpourri mix( definitely when you intend to burn them).
Looking for a tiny shelf for your bedroom for keeping your personal belongings ? An old ladder and a few planks is all you need for this easy to make, cool ladder shelf.
6. Wall plating
Well, you don't have to be a veteran artist to make a masterpiece for your wall. A few random sized plates( coloured or otherwise) arranged on the walls can do something similar.
7. Colouring the blinds
Colouring wooden blinds is a fantastic idea when you have little room for making any changes in the room. After a time when the colour becomes boring, get it a fresh coat of paint and you have a brand new blind again !
8. Fake fire place
Not all of us are lucky to enjoy the snowy nights and chilly morning as those in the colder region ( Well, we should be happy about it). And hence, no room for a fireplace. But we all admire the charm of a living room with a fireplace, shown in the movies. So what can be done?
Fake it. Make a fake fireplace with walls similar to actual one. Instead of the firewood, use candles or e-candles.
9. Deep sleep in deep water
Your bedroom can literally be turned into any of those fantasy world you dream of. Be it a dense forest, captivating marine life or the scenic beauty of a calm sky- your bedroom can transform into anything you dream of.
A normal bedroom has turned into a stunning aquatic scene with a customised aquarium. To get the most of the setting, the pillows are placed in the cavity, surrounded by the lively sea life.
10. Leaf table
How about a giant leaf in your dining hall getting your family together for that sumptuous dinner ? No, I am not talking about a continental dish for the menu, but a dining table. Give the regular block and oval shapes a miss and try out some out of the box.
11. crazy bed designs
Beds can be more than a utility item with eccentric designs. To show you the way, here is a nest inspired bed design that your kids will fall in love with.
12. Deceptive mirrors
Mirrors can be deceptive. It can be so, in a wonderful way. Mirrors of different shapes and sizes hung together can bring the view of that enchanted garden right inside your room.
13. Photo wreath
You might have seen and heard of umpteen ways of preserving and displaying those hard copies of sweet memories. To add to this knowledge is a brand new way of making a photo wreath-A photo wreath supported by a sturdy stand.
14. ladder rack for kitchen
Empty vertical space in kitchen can be put to some good use. Instead of concealing all those sparkling saucepans and dishes in cabinets, let them dangle in the air on a classy wooden ladder rack.
15. Vertical Garden
If a small balcony is stopping you from having a full fledged flower garden, think vertically. Hang light weight potted plants on a vertical wooden mat and save the horizontal place for the heavy ones. Not only is the wooden mat a space maker but also a fitting match for the greenery around.
