Check out Homie Heather's split level in Wilmington, Delaware. This place has some awesome space-saving furniture hacks, as well as a craft room so colorful that it might hurt your teeth!

Take a close-up look at real Offbeat Homes of all shapes, sizes and flavors.
It's easy to get wrapped up in trying to make your home perfect and coordinating and sticking to one certain look. I've tried for so long to stick to certain colour schemes, or a certain really specific look, and I was never completely happy and also could never get it quite right. Finally, I figured out that you shouldn't have to pick one thing you love and apply that to your decor, but instead apply everything you love to your decor. Like in my case I love kitschy, vintage things, as well as crafts and DIY, then mix in some Star Wars and dinosaurs and there you have it! It all combines to create a very kitschy, eccentric look.
Almost nothing in our home was purchased brand new. Much of our decor was passed down from parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, and even great-great-grandparents, giving this recently refurbished Brooklyn brownstone, with all its modern amenities, a rich sense of personal history.
This summer, after six months of preparation including writing a detailed lease, we moved our family of five back into Eliza Brownhome, our 40′ Bluebird school bus. I'm sure a lot of you are wondering how we can fit a family of five into 300 square feet, so I thought it'd be nice to give a tour. I am pleased to introduce Eliza Brownhome, our beloved 1974 Bluebird schoolbus.
Did y'all know that my home-away-from-home is on Maui? My family owns a place there that we jokingly call "The Shack." It's the place where we got the hemp lamp, and the carbana. It may not look like much from the outside, but my mother has transformed the inside into a glitter girly mermaid-inspired island oasis. If you like all things shiny and ocean-y you'll love this home tour.
Also, this begs the question… where are all my island-dwelling Homies? Let's talk about this very awesome, but sometimes challenging lifestyle.
Just because you live in a small apartment in Cologne, Germany, doesn't mean it has to feel cramped. Jasna's apartment is all about crafts, colors, feminine decor, and a spotted fridge. And somehow, it doesn't seem cramped at all! Oh, and wait until you see how she uses clothing as decor.
My 16-month-old daughter and I live on an herb farm (no, not that kind of herb farm, though we are in Northern California). I am a farm hand here, and in exchange for a certain amount of hours a week working the land, we get to live here and breathe the fresh air, learn about herbs, and watch everything bloom.
We live in a yome here. Yep, a yome — it's a cross between a yurt and a geodesic dome. And wait until you see the triangular windows…
