Funky Home Décor

FunkadelicWhile country rustic, modern, and nautical are all wonderful themes, for some, decor needs to be a little different and a little more funky. Here are a few ideas to make your home uniquely you:

Spooky Additions

If you’re a fan of the macabre, there is no reason you can’t have creepy crawlies or ghostly decor around your home all year-round. For some, this means having an extra large Ouija board as a coffee table while for others, it may mean something subtler like gossamer tablecloths or lace wall hangings. For those that love something spooky and subtle, you can use whimsical drapes, Victorian accents, or fun horror movie posters. Why not show your spooky side along with your wonderful decorating skill?

Fluorescent Accents

A pop of color can be the perfect solution to drab or boring decorations. Fluorescent accents have become popular in the last few years because of their in-your-face color and their ability to make the mundane marvelous. While you can use furniture pieces, such as side tables or chairs to create a bright and colorful room, you can be subtler with fluorescent coasters or knick-knacks. You will love the bright and beautiful new atmosphere in your home and it will be interesting and memorable to your guests.

Upcycle

Upcycling is a great way to decorate your home inexpensively and with plenty of creativity. This doesn’t mean you should cover your home with throwaways and thrift store trinkets but it does mean you can create beautiful pieces with reclaimed wood, vintage paper, and old china. You will have a home that showcases your personality and will look perfectly put together.

DIY Reupholstry

DIY reupholstering can be difficult and rewarding all at once. You can bring new life to an ancient piece of furniture or create a beautiful piece out of a not-so-stunning sofa or recliner. Before you begin, however, be sure to have a plan so you will know exactly what to do throughout the whole process. Otherwise, you will end up with a half-reupholstered chair sitting in your driveway waiting for the garbage truck to pick it up.

There are tons of different ways to give your home a funky look, even when it comes to bathroom decor. Enjoy the process and then enjoy the end result!
