28 SUNNY IDEAS FOR BEACH THEMED DECOR!

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.

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.

THE ART OF FRAMING IT!

We all love to showcase our family photos, happy memories, vintage posters or treasured art collections on our walls. But it’s an art to create an amazing visual impact on observers (especially guests) and lend a character or personality to your walls. Here are a few ideas to inspire your creativity…

A collage of black and white photo frames will always have a timeless charm. They can be of same or different shapes.

The wall of Memories

Even a collection of only pristine white photo frames in different shapes, designs or themes will look extremely classy. Take a clue from our awesome collection: http://tinyurl.com/art-of-framing

Pure White Collage

A staircase is a great place to display not just photos but also a bevy of different kinds of frames. Experiment with wooden, metallic, golden or silver finish or any arty frames.

The Staircase of Happy Memories

Did you know that your love for art can liven up your bathrooms too? You don’t have to display only traditional paintings or photos. You can choose to frame a bright vibrant piece of cloth like in the first image below. Or you can choose to frame any random, quirky photo that catches your fancy, like the second image below!

Frame Idea for Bathrooms

Frame Anything and Everything

Empty frames even old ones can be so useful for an interesting piece of wall art! Just affix enlarged photos on them or simply stick decorative papers over them. Another cool idea is to get the glass etched with short words of your choice.

More than Just Photo Frames

Ideas for Old Frames

Combine our eco PVC tree wall sticker with photos to create a unique and charming display. Or arrange 12 different photo frames around a wall clock as shown below.

It's Time to Cherish Moments

If you want to add some color to a collage, get innovative. Create bright borders with chart papers for each frame for that spunk! If you are decorating your child’s room, create framed art for pictures of animals, flowers, fairytale characters, cartoons or your little one’s own artwork.

Add Some Color to the Frames

If you love some DIY or a personal touch to frames that cherish your fondest memories, this one is for you. Add a hint of paint, ribbons, satin bows, paper flowers or dainty junk ornaments to adorn even plain or old frames. Be surprised by the transformation!

Add Some Personal Touch to Frames

Use stencil lettering along with photo frames to create an emotionally touching or expressive collage!

Lastly, a giant photo frame which exhibits all your favorite moments from special occasions, vacations, family picnics or a friends’ night out…can look wonderful and impressive.

So when you plan one for your kids, make sure you involve them in every detail to make it a wonderful experience! Here are some funky ideas we gathered…enjoy 🙂

Use glow sticks to create a welcome sign or any other words you want to stand out for your little guests.

You can use a plant hanger and glow sticks to make a chandelier or just stick glow sticks inside balloons. Kids will simply love it.

Want some spooky fun? Just put glow sticks inside plastic cups or inside white balloons and draw scary faces on them!

Children always enjoy bright, animated stuff, so our funky LED night lights cum wall stickers will be perfect to create some friendly “glowing” fun. See more: http://tinyurl.com/fun-night-lights

Ask your guests to wear shoes with LED shoelaces to add some zing to the party. Hand out white T-shirts and highlighters so that kids can write cute messages on each other’s back! Yellow and orange pens work the best.

combo6

Give every guest socks in bright neon colors or black and white and ask them to show off cool dance moves on the floor. You can also have glow necklaces handy to keep the party spirit high!

combo 9

Do you know how creative you can easily get with old mason jars? Just go wild on them with glow paint of your choice and a magical display is ready for everyone to go “WOW”!

paintitrouge

Lay out all the yummy food on a table against a particular wall. Use a black cloth or large sheet as a backdrop and decorate it with neon or fluorescent paper flowers or streamers or anything else your kids fancy. Try and get cookies, cupcakes or pastries with neon food colors in them. Using a bright fluorescent cupcake stand is also a great idea.

combo3

Use bright neon plastic or paper cups, fun straws to made the food “shine” in the dark! You can also use water proof, acrylic LED ice cubes for the drinks and edible neon sprinkles on the chocolates or sweets…it will make the goodies doubly delicious.

combo7

Most kids adore soft, feathery candy floss and if you insert a glow stick in each, voila! They get glowing candyfloss! But yes you should ideally not serve it to very small kids who might think the glow stick is edible.

It’s a kids’ party so don’t forget games. If you have a kiddie pool just throw in loads of glow sticks to get the crowd mad with joy. Or just half fill some empty bottles with water and drop in glow sticks. Glow bowling is ready!

IDEAS TO CELEBRATE THE NEW YEAR IN STYLE!

It’s that time of the year again! And it hit me when a friend asked what my resolutions were going to be for 2015? Then again I am notorious for not sticking to my resolutions but I am famous for planning the party!! So here are some ideas that we at Uberlyfe think, will simply rock the revelry you are planning when this year ends.

First things first…bare walls no matter how beautifully painted, will not set the mood for a party. Our “HAPPY NEW YEAR” wall decal will instantly make the difference! Or if you just want your walls to look gorgeous but no theme, choose from our beautiful floral stickers for an unique interior. http://tinyurl.com/uberlyfe-newyear; http://tinyurl.com/uberlyfe-floral

A very creative idea is to display a collection of different clocks at a “hard to miss spot” in the room where you are partying. Better, set the alarm for midnight and wait for the fun 🙂

ms

Streamers, paper lanterns or pom poms are a must! Shiny, colorful or bright and white…go wild with options.

Lights are very important…we think when effectively used, they can create magic! For instance if you frame a large mirror with string lights as shown below, the look will be enchanting. Candles are great too, see what we have: http://tinyurl.com/uberlyfe-tlight

Balloons never go out of fashion. Create some quirky decor with them. Hang snapshots of the best moments from the last year from a bunch of balloons. Or use golden paint or glitter to customize funky messages on dark colored ones!

If you have a bit of glitter or some shiny paint, you can add zing to everyday stuff and make them eye catching. Like the stems of these wine glasses were painted in fun colors and the blue crystal like adornment around the rim of the glasses is colored sugar!glass

To stand out from the crowd, paint shiny numbers on the drinks glasses…10, 9, 8,7…just like a countdown! Use cool, glittering stirrers to add some spice. You can make your own too with some cardboard, glue and glitter.

A sparkling disco ball never fails to cheer things up and is a must have if you are planning to dance the night away…

Lay out a beautiful table for your hungry guests…i have always noticed that using contrasting colors create a more interesting look. And it increases the visual appeal of the food, don’t you think?

fq1

Customize the food…and you won’t believe the number of compliments you will get! Cookies that resemble clocks or champagne glasses will be hard to resist. If you are serving cupcakes, make clock cutouts from stiff paper and stick them on the top!
