Here at Apartment Therapy, we love sharing daily design inspiration, tours of fantastic homes and DIY projects that astound. It's what you expect from us, and what we love to deliver, day after day. But sometimes, just sometimes, we like to take you by surprise - add a bit of quirk, a touch of silliness and a healthy dose of good old-fashioned guilty pleasure.
