Before and after bathroom: Orange octopus-style

Ever since I talked about how octopodes make great towel holders, I’ve been wanting to see more tentacles in your bathrooms. Well, Homie Sara came through by uploading photos of her awesome octopus-themed bathroom makeover to our Flickr pool.

Octopodes make great towel holders

I love the idea of putting hooks on an octopus mural to make it look like you have a super helpful sea creature holding your stuff for you! Octopode butlers for all!

Monday Moment: “Happy haunted Halloween!” decorative shelf

Hey Homies! Welcome to Halloween half-week on Offbeat Home! We’re going to be bringing you all things ghost-y, monster-y, spooky and… zombie! That’s why I was STOKED to see that Alexandrea (aka WhistleFishy) uploaded her decorative Halloween dining room shelf moment into our Flickr pool.

Monday Moment: 1 weird couch, 1 bright wall, and 11 pillows

Moments can be awesome, even if they’re casually arranged! This one from frequent Home Flickr Pool contributor, Mareike Scharmer looks scattered, but it sure as hell looks awesome. One chair + 11 pillows + a crazy-ass accent wall = I LOVE THIS SHIT!

Color blocked, Mondrian-style, Skittles-paletted mid-century home decor

I am losing my shit over this impeccably restored period home in Denver, Colorado. Not only is the home a mid-century modern dream, but it’s been decorated — inside AND out — in color-blocked, Mondrian-style, using a Skittles palette colors of bright reds, yellows, greens, and oranges.

If you’d like to be schooled on color-block decor, come drool all the fuck over this 1952 ranch home.

Oranges! Blues! Feet! Dogs! Tiny lizards! All this week in our reader photos.

Happy Monday, Homies! Good to see you back. In this week’s photos we have a lot of COLOR, and in this week’s Clicky Links there’s a lot of helpful hints.

Share your photos by posting to our Flickr group, and share your inspirations with us on Pinterest.
