Guest Groups: Design With Your Funny Bone in Mind

Have you got a funny buddy, one which keeps the conversation interesting and always tells the best jokes? I’ve picked a couple of home decor accessories which are a lot like that buddy. They will add just the right amount of quirk to your space and make sure that everyone knows you’ve got a fantastic sense of humor. — Danyelle from Dandee Designs


Ostrich Pillows from Ross Menuez – $28

A silkscreened ostrich pillow is most likely the last thing your guests would like to find in your occasional chair. If you’re feeling nervous about putting it in your living space, I am sure it would look great on the family-room couch too.

West Elm

Owl Measuring Cups – $19

It could be a crime to hide these darling measuring cups in your utensil drawer. Leave them on the countertop to bring a splash of color and character to your kitchen.


No Whining Art Print, Large – $35

My mother always said that in the event that you do not tell folks exactly what you expect from them, then they’ll never know. This poster will not leave anybody imagining.

West Elm

House Butter Dish – $16

Sleek and modern with a negative of kitch, this just may be my favorite butter dish .

Rig Barstool – $149

All it takes is a fun splash of color to have a basic, industrial slice from drab to fab. I really like the pop of crimson on the metallic components of this chair.

The Land of Nod

Zig Zag Strapping Baskets, Black – $49

Adding character to bookcases can be a hard job. When I stumbled upon these storage containers, I instantly thought they would be ideal for adding a bit of pattern next to my own classics.


Creature Kingdom Owl Hook – $20

Would you prefer to hang your jacket with this cheery fellow every day?


One-Lump-Or-Two Base – $198

This lamp could add a nice bit of whimsy into some little girl’s room. The tiny teacup on top is certainly the icing on the cake.

Room & Board

Adirondack Mesh Basket – $39

With an unconventional container for keeping things can add some fun into a space. I like the notion of employing this metallic basket to store a pile of old books with matching bindings.


Hitch Marigold Stool – $169

This small stool is so versatile! It could be a nightstand or a stool to your own kitchen, or perhaps you’re able to buy a few and turn them into a coffee table. Wherever you opt to place it, then it will no doubt brighten up your space with its cheery color and one of a kind design.

West Elm

Butterfly Shower Curtain – $49

I believe that it’s safe to say that many people shy away from large, bold patterns within our houses. Why not try out a big blueprint in a little space? This butterfly shower curtain could be a good start. That way if you’re not entirely convinced with your selection, it is not something your guests will see every time they come in the front door.

Freshly Picked

His/Her Pillows without Inserts – $80

These darling pillows bring new meaning to the word hers and his. If I had a guest room, they would unquestionably be adorning the mattress.

Design Within Reach

Grasshopper Floor Lamp – $875

Lighting is such excellent means to inject a bit of the unexpected to a room. This lamp is known as the Grasshopper. Now I am confident you’ve never seen among those in a living room before!


Picnic Napkin – $18

Exotic dinner specials generally make a meal feel more special. These linen, stamped napkins will make your next meal special and enjoyable.

Freshly Picked

Leather Mouse Pad, Neon Red/Pink – $35

Desk accessories are often boring and sterile. The neon accent onto this leather mouse pad makes it the perfect piece to liven up your home studio or office.


Arrow Sign – $34

This metallic arrow plaque could be wrapped in any room of the house to add character. Maybe it could point out a direction into the powder room or be intermingled along with your favorite family photographs.

House & Hold

Ferm Living Feather WallSticker – $59.95

Wall decals have been popular for a couple years, but I’ve never seen such a pretty layout as these falling feathers.

Three Potato Four

Milk Bottle Carafe, 32 oz. – $24

I believe that even small, regular items should be beautiful and enjoyable. This Milk Bottle Carafe is equally.

House & Hold

Adrift Samara Mobile – $148

Many would say that a mobile just belongs in a nursery. I believe this wood mobile is so beautiful that it could be a great conversation piece for any room in your home.

Pretty Mommy

Areaware Gold Pig Bank – $200

Adding some sparkle to an area is a fantastic way to kick up the fun element. Including a sparkling gold pig takes things to a completely different level.
