Roundup: Bikes as Decor

Of course, they're really much more than decor. Bikes are our functional friends and, for a lot of people, they're a primary mode of transportation. But they also look cool, as we've seen in many homes featured on Apartment Therapy. Particularly in a small space, where storage areas are limited, a bike can be as central to the apartment's layout as a sofa or coffee table...

The apartments shown above include some of our favorite bike storage solutions: the wall-mounted Cycloc, some DIY bike racks, and the easiest one of all—leaning your bike artfully against a wall.
