Ashley from New York, NY: I created a wall of graphic, yet ladylike, art with just a quart of black paint. The silhouettes were printed on full-sheet labels and then the black squares were painted around them before removing the labels. The shapes could be changed to suit another room (fruit and vegetable shapes for a kitchen, etc).

Oh Joy! shared the newest wallpaper styles from Flavor Paper, and I am impressed. Definitely bookmarking this site for when I live in a place that I can actually invest in such wallpaper…
I love all the trompe l’oeil patterns the best. They look like a classic toile or floral or geo pattern, until you get a good look. Like the first one is mutaches, and the third is a fire hydrant and rats! But check out the site (Flavor Paper), they have some other really amazing prints that aren’t so tricky…
I found these awesome light switches in fuckychickendesign’s Etsy shop! There are many cute designs besides these too – I just need to figure out which ones I want to grace my apartment!
Awesome! Tetris-shaped tiles for your floor or wall, in any colors you like!
Maybe the aesthetics of modern technology just isn’t your thing. Do you ever wish your computer looked a little more at home with the rest of your vintage and antique decor? Maybe a Victorian style all-in-one PC would look better. Or a how about a pretty brass LCD frame?
You have to check out the Steampunk Workshop, chronicling one man’s adventures of making the new look old, or the old look different. One of the first project he ever did was outfitting an old school bus, and there is also a tutorial for doing tin etchings on old Altoid boxes.
This wallpaper is amazing! It reacts to heat – the flowers bloom as it gets warmer.
If you like this wallpaper, you should definitely check out its creator Shi Yuan’s website! There are many very cool art pieces on there, including a few more heat sensitive creations!
This is my kitty Homer. He came from the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society shelter. He is a total ham!
Recently, I moved into a new apartment, and I have yet to get some good decorations on the walls. The fish bowl on the wall is my latest attempt to have something homey and interesting in the apartment. Ever since the fishy, Lou Reed, joined the clan, Homer’s favorite hobby is watching him with extreme interest from every vantage point. It’s hilarious! We caught this picture of him and I just really wanted to share it with you!
