Decorating outside the Box

I have gathered some very inspiring photos of special interiors, these home owners have thought outside the box , stepped away from safe and predictable decorating , I would encourage anyone else to do the same . Your home doesn't need to be just like your neighbours , neutral and safe , don't be afraid to take a chance its decorating , it should be fun and beautiful.
Add pattern to your walls , pops of colour can be fun when used sparingly .

photo source unkown ?
Mix things up . Bench seating with ladder back chairs as well as wicker , gorgeous , why should this look be saved for the cottage as some may think , why not the everyday house , why because it is unexpected ? well there is an even better reason to go ahead with it .

Think outside the box for everyday surfaces , why not warm wood counters instead of plastic .

Say no to hoo humm , look what colour has done for this kitchen and painting black diamonds on the floor , well why not ? Look at all the details , the backsplash is beadboard railroaded , they added chunky brackets to the upper cabinets , the kick plates have a furniture feel , all of these things are easy to do , you just have to take the time to think beyond the norm .
