Wacky, Not Tacky1 of 8
By Rebecca Thienes
Want to avoid cookie-cutter decor? Quirky artwork, textiles, and lamps can all add personality to a room. Take a look at how the following interiors steer clear of being ho-hum with the addition of a single over-the-top element that somehow works.
Nudie Blues2 of 8
The classic nude form makes for a museum-worthy statement, but in bright electric blue, the traditional sculpture becomes a truly modern (and unexpected) masterpeice.
Have a Seat3 of 8
Wall decals are less expensive than new furniture and far easier to switch out on a whim. Drawing inspiration from Victorian silhouettes, this one packs a graphic punch that's anything but old-fashioned.
Night Light4 of 8
Squinting to read a novel in too-dim light strains your eyes. Not a problem with this super-powered task lamp. Its gargantuan size is playful and modern next to a petite traditional tufted chair.
Say What?5 of 8
Vintage signs are all the rage, so when the owners of this home found a salvaged sign from a now-shuttered pharmacy, they snatched it up. An artist rewired it with neon to create this room's eye-catching focal point.
Great Lengths6 of 8
A designer trick when it comes to curtains? Extend the length a few inches so they "puddle" at the floor. At well past a standard length, these luxurious window hangings feel totally decadent. A French pleat, ruffle detail and extensive train add to the effect.
Skater Chic7 of 8
Skateboards are completely unexpected in this super sophisticated, neutral-colored master bedroom. The sexy graphics and bold colors energize an otherwise quietly styled room.
Glass Act8 of 8
Luxe "looking glass" orbs may be the next "it" decoration for tables. Interior designer Amanda Nisbet brings an oversize gazing ball, typically found in the garden, indoors.
