Alright, I'll admit it. I'm a sucker for tacky housewares. It's not that I want my house to look weird (which there's nothing wrong with!) or overly quirky, but there's just something about a humorous little addition to your home that really attracts me. It's hard to find something that perfectly fits that requirement. I get such a kick out of this Shakespeare Tissue Box Holder by Bard though! Looking at the picture alone cracks me up! How hilarious is it that the tissues come out of Shakespeare's nose? I mean, this thing is just plain awesome. Tissue boxes are one of those items that you have very little control over how they look. Sure, there are a few brands that make boxes with a slightly cute design, but it's never anything that great. Forget about hiding tissues under the coffee table or in a corner, now you can showcase your awesome style and sense of humor with a little Shakespeare! I'm sure there are some literature buffs out there just dying to take this baby home.

Here in San Francisco, which was one of the most relevant places for the 1960's radical movement, there is still strong evidence of this mod-style, crazy colorful, "flower power" time. Style from the 60's is most easily recognized with strange, fluid shapes, or angular, geometric ones and whirls of bright colors. Things were proudly done in man-made materials like plastics and rubber, and aimed to look "futuristic" (which, for some reason, meant no arm rests and other convenient comforts). While the Swingin' 60's is an era that's long gone, it's easy to hark back to a few decades ago and bring the color and style back into your living space. A few simple home accents and accessories, like brightly colored, slick-surfaced furnishings, interestingly shaped lamps and lighting, and other brightly hued, 60's-inspired items, is all it takes to give your home a radical vibe with a modern twist. Click on the slideshow to see a few of my favorite ways to bring the 60's back into your home!
