3 off-the-wall decorating ideas

Sometimes your home just needs a makeover. If you don't want your space to look just like a page from a catalog or identical to your neighbor's house, you can always opt for bold and off-the-wall decorating. Here are a few suggestions to create an original space:

  • Fun and funky curtain rods: Enhance your custom window fashions with out-of-the-box curtain rods. For instance, we love the idea of using baseball bats or hockey sticks to hang drapes in your sons' room. Another idea is to tie-back your curtains with household items, such as your husband's suit ties.
  • Surfboard as a coffee table: If you have a beach house in the Hamptons or on the Jersey Shore, an excellent idea is to 'hang 10' by using a flat surfboard as a coffee table in your living room.
  • Wallpaper the ceiling: Yes, you read that correctly. "How about redoing your home with wallpaper? Paste interesting wallpapers on the ceiling and different parts of the wall to make it look interesting and amazing," writes a blogger for lifestyle website Bold Sky. If you've been keeping up with our blog, you know that wallpaper – which was considered outdated just a few years ago – is back and bigger than ever before! Take this design to the next level by finding innovative ways to plaster it to your ceiling.
