If you are of the gaming spirit, bring the fun and nostalgia into your home with game-themed décor. Dominoes, dice, cards, chess, scrabble and many other games are finding their way into vintage, modern and traditional interior designs. Decorating with games is a fun trend that is easy to accomplish.
Gather up game pieces and create a display using decorative jars. Display them on bookshelves, the fireplace mantel or on tabletops around the room. Create a game-themed family area or use them in the game room.
Remember playing Dominoes as a kid? Not only were Dominoes great to pass the time for their original purpose, but standing them on end in winding trails and watching them fall was always fun. Bring back the nostalgia and iconic dotted design of Dominoes with oversized wall hangings, jarred collections and tabletop displays.
Oversize metal-cast jacks displayed on tabletops, bookshelves, desks and as bookends bring a touch of whimsy to home décor. Their distinctive shape makes them a unique decorative object. Mix them with books, decorative boxes or other accent pieces.
Antique and reproduction bowling pins contribute to a vintage or country styled room. Display them in groupings for maximum impact. Varying sizes and patinas create visual interest.
Vintage pool balls gathered in a decorative bowl or displayed in glass containers add color and interest.
Scrabble-inspired décor, such as wall hangings, tabletop décor and pillows, spell quirky style that works well in children’s rooms or for tabletop displays for parties.
The iconic shapes of chess pieces feel at home in the study or home office. As tabletop accessories, they can blend in with other items, giving a varying height to displays. For a fun twist, place a few oversized chess pieces in a game room or man-cave for the chess player.
Dice in the form of boxes, footstools and tables add functional fun to interiors. Display a collection of dice in jars or place them on a table.
Playing cards as wall décor bring a colorful splash to a room. Large prints or paintings of face cards are fun additions to game rooms or the home office.
So, get in the game for some fun and quirky decorating inspiration. Bring out those childhood games and display them in creative ways or purchase game-themed décor to add a bit of play to your rooms.
