Every home needs a unique piece to focus on. Personally, I'm a fan of subtle humor, and a banana vase plated in silver is pretty much hilarious, and a great conversation starter! Don't get me wrong, you still need to have some class in your place and I think Jonathan Adler's banana vase really captures the essence of mature humor. This vase is arty, quirky, funny, and totally unique, so I find it completely necessary to add this piece to my living room collection. It's not only a really great piece of art, but it's functional, too since it's designed to hold a small bouquet of flowers! Regular vases are so blah and predictable, why waste an amazing flower arrangement in a not so amazing vase? Plus, think of all the great puns you can get in with a vase shaped like a banana, it's so a-peel-ing (sorry, I couldn't help myself!).

Decorating your home is never an easy feat, made even more difficult with all the great styles of decor and furniture designs available these days. It seems once you've found a great sofa set, it's nearly impossible to then find a dining set and bedroom set and china set and the countless other home accessories that will all match each other perfectly. Sometimes, it's enough to make you wanna tear your hair out. An easy solution? How about finding home decor and furniture that are all the same color? Or more accurately, lack of color. Clear accessories for the home, as well as clear furniture and other home accents, are popping up all over the place. Not only will they surely match perfectly with all the other color-less pieces, but the see-thru aesthetic gives the home an ultra modern and futuristic feel. With everything from kitchenware to larger household items available in clear materials, it's easy to give your home a cohesive look and unique style. Plus, cleaning is a snap when you don't have to bust out the heavy vacuum cleaner or steamer and just need a box of Clorox wipes. The only downside? Since these super cool home accents are see-thru, no more stuffing the dirty laundry and other little messes behind the furniture when guests come over!
