5. Retro Phone
Retro is in currently. An old fashioned phone or a vintage radio will help create that retro look for your home.

Bookends and bookshelves and be very innovative and unusual. let your choice of book ends and shelves be as unusual as the books you pick!

Gecko coat hook anyone? Or a pair of faux reindeer antlers to hang your hat? Pick unusual and interesting items to hang those hats, umbrellas and coats.
