Decorating Your Home with a Touch of (Science) Class

- Mosaic beakers via Ethanollie

Decorating your home isn’t a science, but it’s fun to treat it as such. Consider accenting your home with recycled relics from your childhood science class 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. You can find items similar to these on Ebay or at flea markets and garage sales, so keep your eyes and mind open!

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.
