It’s time again for some outside the box thinking!

1. ADD SOME SPICE TO YOUR BED!

You spend 1/3 of your life in your bed.  Make the most out of it.  A Dorothy Draper inspired floral headboard perhaps?

Whatever it is you love create it.

2. PAINT A PATTERN ON YOUR TERRACE FLOOR

Give new life to an old deck. Create a pattern and paint it yourself like Kristin at Hunted Interiors.

You can find tutorial here.

The result is awesome.

3. MIX CLASSIC AND MODERN WITH ABANDON

In love with old classics but want a modern flair? A classic dining table looks fantastic with modern chairs. The more you may think they clash – the better they actually go!

Designer Summer Thornton’s chic space for a client is proof.

4.MIX ALL YOUR FAVORITE PATTERNS – EVERYWHERE!

Forget the old thought that patterns should mix with solids. Take all your favorite patterns and colors and blend them together. On walls. bedding, headboard, for one happy uber chic mix. Superbly done here by Amber Interiors.

5. ADD A SURPRISING BOLD ACCENT  COLOR SOMEWHERE – JUST BECAUSE YOU LOVE IT.

Breathe life and character and a sense of fun in to your space with a bold jolt.. The color you pick does NOT have to already exist in your room. Just pick what you love and make it work.  Cassie at Hi Sugarplum painted her ceiling bold red.

6. MAKE A CHANDELIER OUT OF UNUSUAL OBJECTS

Want a shot?

This stunning chandelier made out of syringes hangs in Sober is Sexy owner’s bedroom. Genius AND stunning.

7. KEEP YOUR GROCERY SHOPPING LIST ON THE KITCHEN WALL

This way you won’t write a list and misplace it. Paint the wall with chalkboard paint and write what’s on your mind?

8. WALLPAPER WITH MAPS

By a bunch of maps you love and use as wallpaper. Perhaps maps of your favorite exotic island?
