Turn It Into Art—this year’s 29Rooms theme—comes to life thanks to a multitude of collaborations with local artists like Chiaozza, Belletrist (Domino’s favorite book club), and activists like the Women’s March.

But if you can’t make it to Refinery29’s sold out funhouse this weekend in Brooklyn, don’t worry: Our editors walked the multisensory party world, and have some great ideas on how you can bring it into your home.

Make a statement with neon.

By bringing a little more light to any space, neon has proven it isn’t going anywhere. This room by Planned Parenthood has us wanting to layer it, therefore giving a little depth and new twist to an on-trend decor element.

Pro tip: Be creative with what your neon says, and play with shape and placement to give your apartment the Instagram-worthy moment it’s been missing.

Embrace the power of flowers.

It doesn’t matter whether they’re real, fake, dried, or paper—we want them all. From Beyoncé’s pregnancy announcement to Rosie Assoulin’s Fall 2017 collection, we’re getting inspired to go all out with flowers. Take note from this room in collaboration with Maisie Cousins: Hang flowers from the ceiling, and bring some life to unexpected places in your home.

Use light in unexpected ways.

Whether inside or out, lanterns are a party essential—and they also serve as low-cost, easily replaceable decor options. We loved the painted globes in this room by The Art of Elysium.

Layering makes for a unique wall treatment.

Brought to you in collaboration with The Women’s March, this floor-to-ceiling poster series has us wanting to create a statement with layered wallpaper.

Can’t permanently alter your walls? Overlapping posters serve as a temporary solution, and also add texture play.

Learn the benefits of fringe.

Attention, people: The ‘70s are back. So, why not enhance your jewel-toned velvets and shag carpets with some fringe curtains? The metallic streamers in Ulta’s Beauty Carousel aren’t just good for parties—they’re also great for room separation.

Don’t ever stop partying.

Speaking of partying—because isn’t that what this is all about, anyway?—we’re true believers of following the call of the disco ball. Whether it’s in your bathroom or living room, surprise your guests with instant partying.

Create a space for play.

Sadly, we can’t all turn our apartments into ball pits, but there’s something about this room by Chiaozza that takes us back to a McDonald’s PlayPlace. Our biggest takeaway from this space, then, is to let out your inner child. Decorating doesn’t always have to be serious, so be sure to have some fun with your home.

Turn an accent wall into a work of art

.

We have serious wall envy for the color explosion rooms from artist Alexa Meade. Know that paint can go a long way, especially if you’re really feeling those creative juices. Give your apartment a mini makeover in a low lift way by picking up a few color tones from your local hardware store. Just get inspired by a favorite artist, and paint the town… literally.
