I always find my eye wandering when I see a 'different' way of doing something. In general I tend to view 'different' as 'better' just because, in my mind, uniqueness is one of the primary virtues. Sometimes doing something 'different' doesn't involve spending more money or being more flamboyant and the picture below is a fine example of this. Here we see a fireplace being put to practical use whilst simultaneously creating an interesting visual look. You may have noticed that 'bookcase wallpaper' is becoming increasingly popular (indeed we have used it in one of our projects) - and, as you can see from this picture, using the real thing as decoration also has its charm.
