28 SUNNY IDEAS FOR BEACH THEMED DECOR!

Imagine that your life is like a long vacation by the sea. White sands, sun, cool blue waves, cry of gulls and soul soothing breeze! But life is not like that right? So let’s see how we can bring the beach home…

Paint your room in soothing hues of blue. Broad horizontal stripes are very much in. Or opt for an all white room with natural tone cane or wooden furniture. Avoid any other color for maximum effect.

Now think of furnishing. Incorporate blue in curtains, drapes, rugs, bedding depending on your choice.

Did you know, how creative you can get with the headboard of your bed? Check out the one with the oars and the cushioned headboard with sailboat pattern in a teenager’s room! Also, don’t miss the sailor boy bedside lamps!

Artifacts like different kinds of corals or quaint models of sailboats can make you “feel at sea”. Instead of several separate show pieces, you can also go for a single large item that adds to the nautical miles…

A smart way of creating beach side serenity is adorning an entire wall of the room with enlarged digital prints like below. These can create the illusion of lazing by the sea, very effectively!

Mirrors can be used intelligently to showcase elements of the sea. See the one which has an arty frame made of dead branches. Or the one with a white frame and white crabs surrounding it…

For those who love fishing, just a large fish on the wall will look nice. In the second bedroom, note how the decor is slightly rustic in nature. We suggest you stick to using few colors and simple designs in such rooms.

Love sailing? Why not use ship wheels, life buoys and such to express your love for the cool waters?

We just loved this room! Notice how the shelf in the corner, is shaped like half a boat!

Surfboards have other uses, other than riding on waves. Put them on your wall or use it as a coffee table!

10 “ROCKING” CHILD ROCKERS!!

It doesn’t need to be emphasized that a rocker is almost a must in every nursery…it’s fun, motivates activity and a great pastime! But what most of us probably don’t know is, there are really cool designs out there which kids can’t help but love 🙂

The stringed swaying seat of this rocker, lends a minimalist and quirky look…

This rocking sheep is not only engaging for tiny tots, it’s soft and cuddly too!

A rocker painted in the colors of the rainbow is pretty educational.

It is not just a whimsical little rocker, when you turn it over, it becomes a cool race-car!

Having your own pet rabbit to go on a wild ride is obviously appealing to any kid.

This one is really creative and a great way to get used to life’s fast lane!

For those children who have highly original thoughts or are extremely imaginative…this “monster” rocker is a must. Let the adventure begin!

The rocking frog made from bamboo is both entertaining and environment friendly.

84063_1_800

These rockers have been inspired by a creature from Star Wars! No doubt they look so exotic…

228591_1_800

Why does it always have to be a horse? Why not these woolly, silky soft sheep? This way, no matter how long the ride, the seat will always be comfy!

Now all this “rocking” makes us want to go back to our childhood 🙂 Do you feel the same way?

THE ULTIMATE ECO FRIENDLY BABY CRADLE!

okooko-eco-friendly-cradle

Yes…that’s a cradle!! Created by a company in New Zealand, it seems to have popped out of a fairy-tale…

Nature friendly materials like wood, natural latex, bamboo and wool have been used to put together this incredible luxury spot for your little one. It goes without saying that such a unique innovation will not be cheap. The soft, plush mattress itself is worth $2,500!! But then again, the feeling of sleeping in the lap of such comfort is priceless 🙂

If you are someone who loves and cares a lot about the environment and is of course ready to splurge without a second thought, this one is definitely for you.

7 UNIQUE SHELVING IDEAS!

A shelf is the first thing that pops in mind when you think of storage…but why only stick to the tried and tested types? Here we will show you 7 completely out of the box designs for shelves which will make you go “wow”!

This is a real Jaguar with its heavier parts removed and set up against the wall to act as a shelf!

This one is an interesting compilation of “crosses”…easy to get done too.

This fold out shelf is actually a mural painting, sectioned into multiple panels. Just a simple mechanism can convert it into a storage unit from wall decor. Incredible!

If you think pipes are just functional and can’t be a thing of beauty, think again…this space saving shelf cum coat rack looks super cool despite its simplicity.

a98123_shelf_6-pipe

This shelving unit uses taut cables fixed on a wooden frame, to hold books, magazines, clothes and so on…won’t be able to support very heavy items though.

This wall unit celebrates the beauty of “differences”…and we love the space created for the guitar 🙂

CREATIVE IDEAS FOR A SMALL NURSERY

The adventure of parenthood is perhaps the most exhilarating experience ever! The planning for the baby’s room, splurging on all those cute little clothes and toys, deciding the name of your angel, your hopes and dreams and that seemingly endless wait till the baby arrives…

So why let the size of the nursery dishearten you when the space in your heart is big enough? Living in metropolitan cities very often deprives us of adequate space for everything. But here we bring you some great décor and organization ideas for small nurseries…

When the wall of a nursery is as captivating as the images you see above, they help divert attention from the size of the room! Needless to say, wall decals or stickers liven up plain, blank walls and are visually stimulating for the baby too. See more: http://tinyurl.com/qyplf2o; http://tinyurl.com/o2zkh4t

Closed low cabinets efficiently hide clutter and the top can act as a stand for little odds and ends. Drawers under the crib are really helpful when it comes to storing blankets, bedding or extra clothes.

If you have some space for a simple closet or wall unit, then nothing like it. See how some simple rods, racks and bins can solve the perennial problem of storage! Labeling each bin will help recognize which contains what. And we love the gorgeous combination of pink and grey in the second nursery too 🙂 See more: http://tinyurl.com/op3t84l

Use the vertical space as much as possible to save on floor area. This way there will be fewer things to bump into when you move about! Simple open shelves, hooks and rods can support most of the stuff as you can see above. The top of a traditional dresser can easily become a changing station. Don’t miss the dark blue walls in the second nursery. Though dark colors are usually perceived to make small rooms appear smaller, we beg to differ…it can provide an illusion of depth and an interesting background for light colored furniture.

If you are still confused about the décor, going for light colored walls and furnishing is a safe bet…the room will appear bright and airy too. Still, we suggest, listen to your heart and do what is best for your little one…you can never go wrong 🙂

WINTER MAGIC IN YOUR BEDROOM!

Check out these bedrooms here; see how the penguin wall décor gets half the job done. It makes the room look like Antarctica! See more: http://tinyurl.com/kv4tr3w

The color of your walls can contribute in a major way, when it comes to creating the snowy, chilly ambiance…artificial, shimmering, silvery snowflakes hanging from the ceiling looks simply awesome!

You can go for a combination of different shades of blue and white while choosing the bedding, blankets or cushions…it will enhance the general feel of the room. Kids will specially love the ones with “cool” motifs on them like igloos, penguins, polar bears or snow. Digital prints on plain sheets or covers are also another option. If the color of the curtains and furniture follow the same rule, like maybe white bed or dresser and pale blue curtains…it will be amazing.

This bed shaped like an igloo, will definitely steal the show in any “ice age” bedroom! You can either look for one or get it done…

Some not so big, but fun décor or utility pieces can do wonders too…large stuffed toys, clocks or night lights designed like penguins, faux fur polar rugs, willow bear chair, quirky doorknobs and much more!
