Decorating Your Home with a Touch of (Science) Class

Decorating your home isn’t a science, but it’s fun to treat it as such. Consider accenting your home with recycled science class relics for a unique and whimsical touch, such as test tubes that double as vases, beakers that make for great incense holders, and other scientific vessels that can be used as flower pots.

Here are a few images that should inspire you, including a round-up of my favorite science-inspired furniture, accents and storage solutions. A word of wisdom; to keep your house from looking like a schoolhouse, go light on this particular theme and be discerning about how many scientific elements you incorporate.

    Now those are some decorating ideas I wouldn’t even have thought about to use those items.
    Even though I think it won’t go with any kind of decor but it’s sure something worth to think about and maybe there is the one or other room in a home that could need some make over and then this would be an excellent choice to bring in some new ideas.
    The Ceramic Test tubes is what I really like besides of the mounted butterfly and my favorite and very first pick is the first image from the top.
