Make a favorite fashion accessory into decor, as seen in this clever way of storing hats in Pap Shirock's Los Angeles home. "Hanging them on the wall was just a way to try to keep them from being crushed, but I do like the way it looks."
Homeowner Wendy Chipman couldn't decide on a single style to surround her tub, so she collected various colors of tile that appealed to her. Without a sketch to work from, Wendy created a free-flowing design straight onto the wall. The claw foot tub is painted deep blue inside to coordinate with blue wall tiles, and a custom design on the ceiling offers an object for gazing while relaxing in a hot bath. Not feeling quite as creatively confident as Wendy? Take inspiration from an existing piece art, or a photo from nature, to fashion your own creation.

Now the designer-caliber room is as appealing to the tween herself as it is to her young parents.
Off to one side of the dining room, Nana Yaa’s favorite form of transportation makes its own colorful contribution to the decor. This simple yet chic vignette is completed with the inclusion of an African mask hanging on the wall.
