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.

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.

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

GLOW IN THE DARK TEDDY BEAR!

208432_1_600

This large glow in the dark teddy is more than just a cuddly soft toy…if your kids are afraid of the dark, it can help them overcome that fear! The toy uses colorful LED lights powered by low voltage batteries. The light is composed of quality cotton and lint. It is perfectly safe to use and acts both as a night light and plush pillow or cushion.

The multi-colored lights emitted, stimulate babies visually and for slightly older tots, it is a great way to teach the names of different colors. So besides being uniquely decorative, this friendly bear is utilitarian too 🙂

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.

Designing a theme bedroom doesn’t imply you have to go big all the way…small but significant furnishing or decor items can make a unique statement too! Like a bean bag in a snazzy print, an out of the box table lamp, a cool wall clock or something exceptional like a Swarovski crystal spider web night light!

And if there’s an artist hidden inside you then be bold and paint a relevant design on the wall or ceiling yourself! Like a giant spider web or the city skyline…basically it should set your tiny tot’s spidey senses tingling 🙂 Last and not the least, involve him or her in the decor ideas, after all it is going to be his dream land…

FLOWER POWER FOR YOUR HOME

There’s nothing like flowers to cheer you up and brighten your day! So if you infuse some floral charm into your home décor, it can work wonders.

Even if you feel that arranging real flowers everyday is a hassle, there are amazing artificial creations which will work fine. But this is not the only way you can welcome the magic of flowers inside. Here, we are going to share other ideas too…

First, let’s talk about walls…undoubtedly a very integral part of home décor. Did you know that you can easily showcase the beauty of flowers on your walls through decals?

Now let’s take a look at other things in a room where you can go floral…the curtains are a good place to start. Flower motifs on cushions or floral bedspread or rugs are great ways to introduce that bright summery feel. Or you can think a little differently and use the look in small doses like floral pattern on a lampshade, placemats, flowers with candles, on screens…whether you go for vibrant hues or calming shades, flowers always look good. Even artificial flower trails with tiny electric lights inside them, glow attractively on a quiet summer evening.

No matter which way you choose to introduce flowers, it’s good to not overdo it. If all the items in a room have floral designs, it might be overwhelming! So use a bit of moderation and your innovative “grey cells” and watch happiness bloom in front of your eyes 🙂
