Here's some tips to obtain a fun photo with things you can find in your house.
First: look for colour contrasts.
Then find a well-lighted room. Sun is better than a lamp.
Gather things a few things and think what they mean to you. Associate colours with other shapes. In my photo the more banal parallelism was "red" and "heart", so I chose it XD
Place things on a surface (remember: your objects must be very defined against the background).
Remember the rule of thirds.
Move your objects "on the scene" until you find a composition you like.
Take photos! At least 3 or 4, there will be one you prefer ;)
Adjust your photo with photoshop or other programmes.
