Fun, vibrant décor is a great way to capture a bit of whimsy in your home.  Play with color and see where it leads.  Paint furniture in bright colors and patterns.  Use bright colors in accents and incorporate vivid patterns.

Display groups of unique items.  Remember those antique toys your grandmother gave you?  Take them out of the attic and proudly display them on a table or shelf.  If you have a collection that you’ve always thought too silly or weird but loved just the same, bring it out and put it on display.

Look for fun finds, such as stone pillows.  These are great for a child’s room or to enjoy in the family room.  They add a quirky sense of fun and make great throw pillows or even a unique seating option.  A pair of unicorn heads to greet your guests?  Why not!  A teepee in the living room?  Sure!
