So for those of you who share my hipster fantasies, here are some quick tips for easily “hipsterizing” your home:
Go retro – add decor accents from yesteryear. An old dial-up phone, record player or a banged up typewriter will do the trick.
Use throw pillows with “inspirational” quotes – But don’t dig too deep. In order to achieve true hipster status, quotes need to be obvious, almost sarcastic (“work hard”, or “read a book” are perfect examples.)

Add a great welcome mat. Slogan or retro looking image will make your guests feel like they are entering your imaginary Brooklyn loft right at the door.

Anything with Antlers – plastic, wood, paper or metal….antlers inspired decor elements are hot with the hipsters of the world. I especially like this faux taxidermy from Target. It is cheap, while still looking great. I love the fact that it is white, so it goes with almost any room decor.
Upcycle and Repurpose – Be kind to your decor and to the environment at the same time! Turn an old trunk into a coffee table, use mason jars as flower pots, or turn old bricks into a TV stand. Be creative. Be Edgy. Hug a tree.
