Outlandish Themes That Miraculously Work Anyway
A date palm mural in your dining room or the constellation of Taurus painted on your ceiling (in glow in the dark paint) will add that man-of-the-world look to your rooms. Stencil a bull elephant on your bedroom wall -- we dare you. If that's too earthy, give your kitchen a little Tuscan charm with faux grapes, faux stone and faux wrought iron -- or create a built-in bistro in your breakfast nook with a striped awning complete with an espresso maker and a blackboard menu. Viola! Like magic, you too can experience La Rive Gauche, or the wonders of an evening in Tuscany under a canopy of stars.
