Imitation is the greatest form of flattery. In fact, that's probably why you're here, scoping out house tours for inspiration that you can put to use in your own home. If you missed anything lately, don't fret. I've gathered some of my favorite steal-worthy details from our recent house tours for you.
Above; From Adrien & Jon's Adventurous California Home: A master bathroom becomes an art gallery when it's covered wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling in flea market and estate sale artwork.
From Alex and Max's Earthy and Eclectic Venice Bungalow: A nook in the kitchen is wallpapered with a world map, complete with pins to mark the couple's travels together.
From Joe and Alana's Newport Home Full of Bold Colors and Patterns: The wallpaper in the bathroom? It's actually fastened to a board, held in place with small clips that make it easy to change the look on a whim.
From Elizabeth and Jeremy's Urban Jungle Townhome: A single print cut into thirds becomes an instant triptych, perfect for filling out a bigger space, visually, than the print would have by itself.
From Marta and Mike's Play of Light and Art in a Bright Chicago Loft: A bottle crate is easily converted to store rolled up magazines.
From Jen and Eric's Colorful Mid-Century Home: Consider making a light fixture, like a sconce or this hanging piece, part of a gallery wall for an interesting and seamless integration into the room.
From Katherine and Josh's Northern Comfort With a Southern Sensibility: That big chalkboard? It's actually an IKEA tabletop painted with chalkboard paint. Leave a border to mimic the look of a wooden frame.
From Julie's Northwoods-Meets-Art Deco Apartment in Minneapolis: If you have an idea for art but no idea how to paint it, commission it. Julie commissioned this piece of art from a Seattle pop artist to mimic a funny sign her 6-year-old niece drew for her lemonade stand.
From Amandine & Mihalis' Quirky Industrial Exoticism in a Renovated Brooklyn Warehouse: If you have the tall ceilings for it, bringing a full-sized tree inside is quite a dramatic statement piece.
From Pierce's Vibrant & Playful Montréal Pad: Painted neon pink edges are a dazzling DIY extra for these simple wooden shelves.
