Inspiring Unique Home Decor Ideas

Jan 1st

Having an attractive, conventional home is fine, but sometimes it’s nice to stand out from the pack. Whether you want the inside of your house to have a radically unusual look or you just want to add a few novel touches as conversation pieces, don’t be afraid to express your own individuality with the layout of your home.  To make your home looks more stand out, you really need these inspiring unique home decor ideas.

An Artful Bed – Don’t be afraid to let a big bed take over a small room. If the piece is open and airy, the space won’t feel claustrophobic. (Rule of thumb: The top should be at least six inches from the ceiling.) Dark vintage wallpaper adds impact, but white walls would highlight the lines of the bed to crisp, gorgeous effect.

An Oversize Object –Do you have a room that is too big for a shelf or a side table? The floor can be a smart spot for a large-scale piece—especially one meant for play. Framed by curtains, you can put a globe that will look as if it’s onstage. It brings a kick to a corner and even solves a problem by hiding the radiator.

A Stately Chair – Play up the drama of a striking seat by making it the first thing you see when you enter a room. Give it an equally grand companion (see the neighboring urn) to help it make sense among simpler pieces. In the same color palette as your existing furniture, it will look right at home.

A Quirky Statue – This is one of less formal unique home decor ideas than a bust and funnier than a horse head, a bit of anatomy—or any eye-catching sculpture—will elicit questions and smiles. Place it in a conspicuous spot, like on a side table or by the entryway as a doorstop. A tad shy? Tuck a smaller version on a shelf among books.

A Sculptural Table Lamp – You don’t need to use a task lamp for its intended purpose. If you have a stunner, put it on a side table in a corner. The modernist arcing lamp above looks extra sleek against a gold backdrop. Switched on, it casts a moody glow.

A Graphic Rug – A bold pattern on the floor gives a focal point to a room with a mix of furniture styles—it’s a unifier. To ease into the look, start with neutral sisal, top it with a subtle stripe then put the showiest rug on top. Worried about pattern overload? A solid (rather than glass) coffee table can mitigate the effect.

The main thing to get unique home decor ideas is by combining between seating, wall art, accessories and going retro theme.
