We've probably all got something that falls under the "out of place" category. That piece of home décor, big or small, that we hang on to for some reason, even it's worn, ugly, or doesn't match our current style. Even still, we might live with someone who's got an attachment to something…

There are two possible contenders for out-of-place items in our small apartment: an oversized fake-leather arm chair we found for free and an old blanket of our boyfriend's. The arm chair is way too big for the space, but it's so comfortable we don't want to the get rid of it. Our boyfriend's blanket features a rather interesting color scheme---but we still love it. Both items, despite their appearances, are displayed prominently in our home.

Do you have an item you just can't part with for some reason, even if it is too worn, ugly or doesn't fit in with the décor? Does your living partner? Do you display the items without care, or do you go to careful pains to disguise/hide it? How long have you had this item, and how long do you plan to have it? Have you ever had a guest ask you about a certain item in your home that they felt didn't "fit in"? Tell us about handling items that don't quite fit your decor!
