We have been mostly used to conventional furniture shapes so when something out of the ordinary is put in front of us, it is fair that we do not resonate with it immediately. However, opening up your mind to round chairs or oblong stools can make for a wonderful addition. You need not go overboard to make an impression. Just invest in a few quality abstract pieces of furniture that you can place discreetly, yet in a spot to make enough of an impact. You will be pleasantly surprised at the results.
If the OCD in you just had a mini-panic attack, relax. You need not always match your décor exactly. Stepping out of the box now and then can be wildly invigorating and refreshing. Round towels for instance in a room full of mainly square shapes makes a bold contrast and stands out. There are basically so many options available to you only if you want to look. You can use stripes with checks if you wish for covers or bright and dull colours.
Your Own Paintings
Even if you might not consider yourself much of a Picasso, it does not matter. Abstract paintings rarely ever stick to rules which is what makes them so unique and coveted. Salvador Dali is probably one of the most famous post-modern abstract artists and his paintings are popular around the world. They immediately draw the eye and gives the viewer something to think about which is nice. Visitors to your home will not only be entertained in a different way, they will get to know what you are like yourself. Your personality come through your home so make it good!
If you adding a touch of abstract, then ornaments are easiest. There are just so many out there that you might be hard pressed to not get them all. Ornaments from other countries add a special appeal so if you have friends and family who travel or if you do, make sure to collect some and add them. They come in interesting shapes and colours and including them in your décor will give your home a sense of uniqueness. Do not be afraid to experiment and try out various looks till you find one that works for you. Most of this stuff is not all that expensive and you can secure some worthwhile bargains.
