• Tell Your Friends

Home design is serious business!  Many of us scrimp and save to buy just the right piece of furniture, or scream at our loved ones for wearing their outdoor shoes on the Persian carpet [ahem, sorry family].

But it’s good to remember that this is fun stuff. This lighthearted wallpaper featured in an Apartment Therapy post with tips for removing some of the more stuck-on stuff reminded me of just that. Perfectly timed for the Westminster Dog Show, too.

Do you have any humorous things that decorate your home? I have a framed note from a friend at my front door that says presciently, “You forgot something” to our guests as they’re leaving.

    Or my all-time fave, the skull-n-bones (though I'd only want it in pink):

    The dog lover in me finds this doggy wallpaper irresistible!

    We have a huge Andy Warhol lobster print hanging in the hallway to my husband's office:

    Not the sort of thing you find in most people's homes, but since my husband studies decapod crustaceans it is totally appropriate for him.

    If I were more of a wallpaper lover I would hang this in my husband's office:

    I don't know, though — dancing lobsters might be just a bit more than he could tolerate!
