17 Fun Household Accessories To Add A Little Quirkiness To Your Space
Everyone's tastes are different and when it comes to interiors, your abode should show off your character and style too. There are many routes to take when it comes to interior design, from elegant luxe, to country chic, or eclectic interiors that are set off with eccentric home accessories. With the resurgence of the 1990s fashion trend, you could argue that our love affair for '90s novelty has spilled over into our homes. Many of us millennials are full blown adults now – even though we may or may not feel like it – and sometimes we need a break from adulting and to be reminded that we are still allowed to have fun.
If you're in love with novelty fashion, like googly-eyed accessories or the incredible Portable Pizza Pouch, it may be time to think about your home. Sure, you probably don't live alone in a mansion, but there's no excuse for not living in an environment of your design that reflects your personality. If your partner, roommates, or family members are on the same wave length as you, they may enjoy the addition of novelty home accessories, but if not, you can always decorate your personal space to suit your style.
So if you can't get enough of the '90s, you miss the U.K. game show Fun House, or you want to smile at the end of a hard day, here's a bunch of novelty household accessories to inject some fun into your home.
