4 Unique Decor Ideas You Can Try Today

All you need is a little inventiveness and creativity!


The best thing about styling spaces is that there are no rules—all you have to do is trust your gut and keep an open mind to have a well-decorated home. Although you may get funny looks from people every now and then, as long as you love the final look, the design risks you're taking will be worth it. To spark your creativity, we've rounded up a few of what we think are nifty ideas that you could incorporate into your haven: 

1. Build a fun backsplash with wine corks. 

Give your bar a fitting facelift with one-of-a-kind and affordable paneling with the help of corks! If you aren't a fan of wine but you still want to cop the look, you can ask your friends who collect bottles of red to donate their spare corks to your project.

2. Design feature walls with washi tape. 

For those who want to wake up walls but want to veer away from using paint and wallpaper, consider using washi tape instead. This design idea isn't limited to walls, too—feel free to deck out your cabinets, doors, and table surfaces with your favorite prints.

Making the Bohemian look work means showcasing your free spirit 

3. Turn a decorative laundry bin into a makeshift side table. 

Thinking about styling a vignette but don't want to spend money on a new table? Turn an old bin into the piece you need by simply turning it upside down. Breathe new life into it by painting it a fresh color that works well with your home's style.

4. Use rugs as dividers.

Making the Bohemian look work can be easy! Instead of splurging on printed drapes, get an intricately patterned rug and hang it in the doorway. Not only does it give the room unexpected character, it is great for creating privacy between rooms, too!
