As home owners, we are forever seeking out ways to accentuate our homes, and to give it style and character to separate it from the others. Nobody wants to live in a house that is decorated completely the same as the next, so allow your mind to wander when thinking about the myriad of decorating options. In this ideabook, we would like to show you some of the more interesting ways people have furnished and decorated their homes, and in some cases, we're certain you won't have seen any like before.
No more is a staircase simply a thoroughfare from one room or level to another, it can now be a work of art in its own right, and designed however you please. Belonging to an avid outdoor enthusiast, this totally wacky staircase is unlike any we have seen before. The bright yellow of the kayak makes up the majority of the structure, with paddles of two different sizes making up the railings. Also noteworthy is the decorative life buoys which line the railings, adding a fun, yet safe element to the stairs! Designed by Preetham Interior Designer, who also have a number of other staircase projects, among other, which we highly recommend you take a look at here.
A very individual room indeed, this dining room from Design Concept Creative Studio is an ode to creative expression. This fun and colourful room is one full of eccentric pieces. Mismatched prints and photos of various sizes, colours, framed in different forms, is an easy way to ensure any room does not look like it is straight out of a mundane interior catalogue, and lets you showcase to visitors some of your favourite photos and prints. The green folding chairs, although bold in their own right, seem to be overshadowed by the totally eccentric dining table. Looking like a fragile house of cards that could topple at any moment, the legs of the table are the real star. As if gentlely placed on top of the cards is the glass table top, aiming to give the illusion the cards are standing tall in their own right.

Veering away from the notion that a toilet seat must be round, this idiosyncratic bathroom reminds us that all we know can be rethought, and that no design concept is the only way. This toilet is defined by sharp lines of an octagon, a shape we are sure you are yet to see for a toilet! The defined edges of the toilet seat show a great disparity to the wavy edges of the mirror, again a shape never seen before for this part of the bathroom.

Looking like it belongs hung proudly on a wall in a living or dining room, why not take the concept of wall art, and implement it in a floor rug?
