NOW that's different....

I have decided we should embrace our differences today, so this post is all about that!
(O at Home, Fall 2006, home of Suzanne Slesin)

...take for instance this shag rug that so closely resembles a patch of grass!!! And, as J Lee from aneyeforan:interior pointed out, the displayed art in this room is an eye catcher too!

(Instyle Home, Spring 2006, Home of Hilarie Burton)

It's not often that you see a center arrangement like this one here with the antlers...I love this idea!

(The English Home, August 2007, Home of Jean and Jamie Hyslop)

A pink tub!!! What a fun bathroom...definitely different!

(Shelter, Jan/Feb 2006, Designed by Pierre Passebon)

One way to display your collection is by using the ceiling, like here with the home owner's collection of brightly colored bowls...


(Elle Decor, July/Aug 2005, Designer Robert Couturier)

Or you could put the swing in your living room, like here with this antique Anglo-Indian piece...


And there's nothing wrong with going floor to ceiling with a print you love, like this Francois Halard room posted today on Desire to Inspire blog.

It is so interesting to see these quirky rooms. What one person finds to be unusual, another thinks of as normal!

This is so true POC! There is always room for much interpretation when it comes to design.

first off, that swing is awesome and i want one! however, in the first image, my eyes gravitated towards the painting on the wall over the grass like rug. that painting is so odd i couldn't turn away.

great post. great inspirations and variety of design styles!

I agree! If not for our differences, how would any of us learn and grow. Love the choices.

The garden seats are beautiful in #1, don't you think? ok, the plates on the ceiling, I'm laughing! How would you keep that clean? Oy!

That last wallpapered bedroom from Chloe Sevigny's East Village home (January 2007 House & Garden) is such a favorite of mine. She and her decorator, David Cafiero, (http://cafieroselect.com) even papered the top of the red desk -- love that!

The photographer was Francois Halard, just in case anyone is doing a Google search :)

Thanks for pointing that out Courtney, I've tried several times to update this post since yesterday and correct that info...but it only appears updated when I'm viewing the page from inside my blogger account. Any ideas??
