Octopus everything! 8 Cephalopods for your home.

I just adore Cephalopods.  Octopuses,  squid,  cuttlefish…  They’re all just brilliant.  Here’s a eight ways we can have octopus decor in our very own homes. SeeWhatIDidThere

Since I’m on a quest to customise my home to be anything but boring, I though I’d bring you along for the ride with the fun yet functional things I find.  Sometimes these will be affordable, sometimes not, sometimes it depends on what your definition of ‘affordable’ is and how far your purse strings go.  I’m saving to buy a home, so the answer for me is not very far, but a girl can dream and I can certainly peruse the beauties…

Let’s start at the front door…

Steampunk Door Handle

And what a door handle! Steampunk door handle by GregsHome

Seriously, if you had a tentacle for your door handle, we’re instant friends before I’ve even knocked.   We’re adults now, which means we can really use the fun in FUNctional to the fullest on our very own homes, starting with the front door!

Moving on to the kitchen..

Cut from upcycled records, these clocks come in a vast array of cuts, and are perfect for the Gothabilly, music lover, or those who just like an octopus who can help us tell time.

Sitting room…

The Animal Chair Collection: The Octopus Chair

The chair is included into the Animal Chair collection, by a Spanish designer Maximo Riera (Who’s actually based in London.  Go figure.)  It’s insanely gorgeous.

I’ve also seen these holding makeup brushes, but I think they’d be great for holding kitchen spoons for the Home Goth, as a desk tidy for the Corporate Goth, or even for holding bits and pieces out of the reach of a Baby Bat for the GothMum or GothDad.

Bathroom…

Shower Squids

Shower Squids. They're the ultimate in fun yet functional Cephalopods.

If these weren’t AUD$54 they’d already be hanging up in my shower.  As it is, they’re forever on my wish list.  Look at their little helpful tentacles!

I couldn’t go past this gorgeous lamp from EpochCreations.  Edison bulbs might be fashionable right now, but that doesn’t make them all bad.  It’s a gorgeous design with a lovely tentacle.

And speaking of tentacles…

Lets be honest, this isn’t functional, it’s just beautiful and fun and I want it on my wall. It’s made by ArtAkimbo.
