For all those who are fed up with mediocre and plain, I am happy to present some avant-garde décor options that actually look amazing. All you have to do is dare to be non-traditional and different. You are invited to express your unique sense of style and make a bold statement with your design and décor. We are talking about ideas that blow that average, play-it-safe solutions out of the water and completely arrest attention. To make the magic happen, unleash the inner designer and immerse yourself in the hedonistic way of living at its most inventive.
A personal twist on a popular style
Committing to one popular style can be a great way to maintain a sense of structure and purpose. However, it should not inhibit your creativity and imagination in any way. For example, farmhouse décor is a great pool of ideas and it’s inspired by cabin-like interior design. But, don’t just follow what others are doing. Expose the flawed beauty of distressed wood framework and look beyond the orthodox color palette, which is dominated by light yellow and turquoise tones. Introduce pops of bright color and breathe vibrant life into your home. As a finishing touch, add a high-end furniture centerpiece that speaks volumes about your aesthetic preferences.
Polish that modern edge
On the other hand, we also have a contemporary, modern style. More often than not, it comes across as edgy, and that is precisely what we need. So, accentuate modern architecture for a wow effect and add a concrete fireplace to serve as a breathtaking centerpiece. Put a glass floor over an open shaft to add drama to your bathroom. Implement playful modern features that also have a functional purpose. Mount a TV on the wall of your bathroom and protect it from water and humidity. Install a spiral stairway slide that enables you to storm down in an instant. Allow your cat a similar benefit with the steel cat transit system, a tube that also doubles as incredible décor feature.
Bathing in style
This one may seem like a true oddball, but how about a large soaker tub in the bedroom? The best way to go is to place the tub in the corner and make it blend seamlessly with the décor and design solutions in the room. Add a nice stepping stool or comfortable seating next to it. That way, you won’t evoke the feeling of cheap motels. But, if you think you are not going to make it work, take your bathing outside!
A pool is always in
A pool is definitely an evergreen addition to your home. In addition to being a drop of happiness itself, it opens up a lot of doors for making your home stylish. When you have a pool, you have a patio, and where’s a patio there is nice furniture to go with your fancy staycation station! If you’re looking for a great option for new age homes, look no further than trendy fiberglass swimming pools. They are visually stunning, easy to maintain, and are less prone to rot and rust than other conventional options. Infinity pools and indoor-outdoor pools are also mesmerizing water features you can consider.
A splash of greenery
All those houseplants are nice, but why not think big? Invite the splendor of greenery in your home by planting a full-sized palm tree or designing a full-blown arboretum. This will be a focal point that soothes the soul and grabs the attention of visitors. There are some other nice ways to bring the outdoors inside. Instead of planting a small forest, I would consider an indoor living wall (vertical garden).
They adorn lavish hotels and commercial space, but there is no reason not to witness this in your residential abode as well. These refreshing installations wildly vary in shapes and sizes, so make it suitable for your space and design goals.
A wall that makes a real statement
Statement walls are increasingly popular ways of injecting style and drama into otherwise blank surfaces. The opportunities when it comes to materials, patterns, and colors are virtually endless. You can smash that quaint wedding china or a dining set to acquire bits and prices of an eclectic wall. Or, incorporate your collections of seashells. The list goes on: I have seen many other majestic ideas such as walls with urban-modern geometric patterns, wood pallets, murals, oversized world maps, etc. And if you want to start smaller, you can do it easily: Go for a whimsical backsplash or experiment with wallpapers.
Outside the box
Some people are not satisfied with being like everybody else. They want to be on the cutting-edge of style and put a special stamp on your living environment.
Do bear in mind that being edgy can be a slippery slope: There is no need to go completely over the top or lose sight of functionality in the process. Then again, don’t hesitate to let your freak flag fly and instill a sense of extraordinary in your home.
Take inspiration from design daredevils and never accept a compromise.
