Quirky Etsy Finds: Home Decor Edition

Today, I’m sharing a new series that rounds up a specific group of my favorites: quirky Etsy finds.

Being a home decor and DIY blogger, I follow tons of other blogs in the same niche who post gorgeous photos of their designs and renovations. I see so many beautiful textured pillows, modern printed wallpaper, and refinished antique pieces, which I adore, but it’s nice to see something that is playful and quirky every once in a while. Unfortunately, sense of humor is often an overlooked part of home decor.

I, personally, love to add a bit of quirk to each room. Whether it’s tiny cat prints in a modern frame or fairy gardens with roaming wild animals, adding playfulness to your design can express your personality and add a weird sense of coziness, or just a fun conversation piece, to your space. I’ve been saving some of my favorite quirky Etsy items over the past several weeks that will hopefully either find a place in your home or just brighten your day a bit

Concrete elements are very popular right now. Why not add a concrete baby doll head to your shelf or book case?

On my Etsy sprees, certain items really brighten my day. They may not be items I want to recreate or add to my cart, but I have great admiration for someone who creates quirky, creative products.


What a nice surprise a happy manatee would be every morning while finishing up your cup of coffee?


This print was in my cart for weeks when designing the nursery. I was determined to find a place on the wall for this sweet rabbit, but it just wasn’t meant to be for now.


A plant I can never kill. This would also be great in a kid’s room or nursery.


A dinosaur terrarium is on my must-have list. I have a terrarium that I change out seasonally, and this one gave my loads of inspiration for my next terrarium theme!


Etsy is not only a place for me to find beautiful handmade pieces, it’s also a place where I gather tons of inspiration. Being a DIYer and super cheap thrifty, I always think of ways to recreate things that catch my eye. Sometimes it feels like I rarely have an original idea, so inspirational pictures are a must for me. Etsy fills that inspirational hole.

What quirky things have you found on Etsy? How have you added quirky, playful elements to your home decor?

    I love that bunny print, it’s adorable! I did giggle about the cactus, that’s the type of plant I need in my house too, something I won’t kill

      The bunny print still might make it’s appearance in my home at some point. I love it! And yes, the knit cactus is a must coming from someone who so easily kills the indestructible succulents and real cactus. 🙂

    Love your picks! I adore Etsy and have found so many great things for my home. I have an art print by Yellena that I love: https://www.etsy.com/listing/70513792/giclee-fine-art-print-allusion-11×14?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=yellena%20allusion&ref=sr_gallery_2 It’s framed and hangs above my daughter’s crib (babies should be exposed to cool artwork, in my opinion!). I also buy a lot of tarot decks on Etsy as well!
