For many city dwellers without a garage, moving the bike indoors is a must. Rather than stowing it away in a corner, hoist the bike up on the wall to become a piece of art. This store-bought bike shelf comes in two sizes and colors so you can integrate a bike into any room. Just be sure to anchor the unit into wall studs.
No need to go with the flow when it comes to wall art; hang what inspires you. These colorful oars, for example, are perfect for the outdoorsy adventurer. Hung high on the wall in an X shape, they make a graphic statement in this rustic office setting, but they could also work in a nautical-inspired space.
A cluster of colorful baskets is a great way to spice up a plain white wall. Particularly striking in this modern interior, an arrangement of beautiful, tactile baskets adds a bit of old-world charm. To create this look yourself, select baskets of different sizes and colors, and attach them to the wall with hidden screws or hooks.

Attach a few in alternating directions to add interest, or for something different, arrange a group of rackets in a circle to create a stunning feature that mimics the look of a stained-glass window.
