Whimsical Home Accessories

Keeping it light and kicky today. Watch the next couple days’ posts for a gorgeous space and an amazing artist.


Maybe I’ve mentioned this before, but when I see something for the home and some form of happy sound or word involuntarily escapes my mouth, it’s a clue that I really like the piece. Seriously. I’ve learned to pay attention to this when I’m shopping and I need to narrow my choices. The one that gets the happy noise means I like it on some deep, subconscious level.

I laughed out loud when I came across the Foot in the Door Doorstop from Wrapables.com. Hmmmm, audible happy noise = I like this thing. (Insert psychological explanation of your choice here.)

That led me to check out more of Wrapable’s offerings and I found these whimsical home accessories to share with you. Enjoy!


If you don’t want to put your foot in the door, why don’t you put your Key in the Door?



I adore these humans helping us store our books and magazines: Bookend Women, City Slickers Bookends and the Human Magazine Rack. (My apologies to former domino subscribers; don’t mean to depress you.)


Last, and to continue with our psychology theme, a couple hang-ups: The Branches Jewelry Organizer/Coat Rack and the Flip Flop Wall Hooks.



Do you inject whimsy into your home decor? How? Does the happy sound thing happen to you when you are shopping?

These are terrific! I actually got no further than the first picture when I went to the website to buy a couple for my office. Then I came back to see the other decor items. I love a bit of whimsy… although I my case I usually refer to it as “quirky”.

Thanks for sharing.

That’s great, Tracy. We all can’t wait to see photos of your high-heeled doorstop in your office. What comments you will get! 🙂


You have to love the stuff that makes you smile. The door stop is over the top. Love it.
