QUIRKYHOMETRENDS While there are many homeowners who still gravitate toward the traditional when it comes to their decor, there’s a growing camp of people who like things just a little bit quirky. If you want to experiment with adding a bit of whimsy to your spaces, or just want to go deeper into the trend, search out unusual accessories.

Vintage posters, colourful coasters, oddly shaped vases and layered area rugs all create texture and interest to a room. Colourful and boldly patterned curtains and throw pillows are another way to make a statement – especially if the patterns are

purposefully mismatched. Finally, funky furniture or furniture used in a way other than originally intended will have your visitors talking. Try using a chair as a side table, a stool as a

coffee table and pillows around a low table for an uber casual dining experience.
