I love globes, and this may sound silly, but sometimes, the color schemes clash with the rest of the decor. With this world globe, $70, from Z Gallerie, that certainly won't be an issue! This definitely doesn't look like it belongs in a classroom. The monochromatic color scheme would look striking on a bookshelf, and I think it would be a great conversation-starter.
This ceramic hand, $12, from Urban Outfitters would be the perfect way to display your pretty jewelry on a dresser, instead of hiding it away in a jewelry box. I think the whole idea of the ceramic hand "wearing" jewelry is just so cheeky and fun. Plus, you get to look at your jewelry, since you certainly can't wear all of it every day!
I've always thought trunks were so cool, for some reason. I love these CB2 metal trunks, $50+. I'd stack them at the end of the bed and keep mementos in them, or leave them half opened with little treasures inside on a bookshelf or coffee table. I know these might now be for everyone, but I just find them really fun!
Do you have any unusual knickknacks hanging around your house?
