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.

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

WHITE WEDDING DECOR IDEAS

Don’t you just love white weddings? They are so classy and eternally romantic! Here are some creative ideas for such a fairytale wedding

The first thing that comes to our mind is flowers. Go for all white flower decorations with lilies, orchids, hydrangeas, roses and gardenias. You can set the tables with gorgeous candelabras topped with tons of blooms and white pillar candles. Or you can also create a canopy like floral structure with numerous votive candles producing charming illumination. Make sure that seating arrangement is plush, comfortable and in white or any metallic finish.

Beautiful centerpieces are obviously a must. Combine the pristine white flowers with silver, white ceramic or crystal vases and cozy white candles for a magical feast! If you want a hint of color then try adding ripe lemons to the flower arrangement! http://tinyurl.com/uberlyfe-flowers

For a more dazzling effect, you can use silver disco balls and white string lights with flowers.

To make the look of an all white wedding more exciting, you can add touches of gleaming metallic color to the décor. Like these goblets and place cards are gold accented and white linen napkins are gold embroidered. Platinum or silver accents will add that sparkle too.

Invitation and menu cards can be in classic black and white combination. Or they can be engraved in gold and silver for that opulent touch.

For an outdoor wedding or an elegant cocktail party, a clear topped see through tent will look dramatic! You can suspend white and platinum glowing globes to get that enchanting, shimmering lighting.

If you are going for all white drapes, they have to be spotless and very good quality. It’s crucial to choose linen which looks bright, has different layers or textures to create an interesting look. Subtle white on white patterns can look great too!

Want to go over the top and steal the show? An elaborate ice bar will be an unique showstopper with the couple’s monogram on it!

The bride’s bouquet can have any white flower she loves. It can also have a hint of pink, plum or occasional strands of fern.

When it comes to the food, it will be almost impossible and not really appealing to have an all white course! So ideally you can make a few items “white themed”. An eggnog cocktail or even a pink cocktail with dainty white decorative stirrer will be great!

Delicacies in white sauce or cookies and pastries with white icing and edible silver pearls can be another choice.

The bridal gown will obviously be a glorious shade of white. But it would also be a great idea to get white dresses for the bridesmaids!

9 MUST SEE TRENDS IN BEDROOM DECOR

Your bedroom is your sanctuary, your haven…where you want to be yourself without worrying about how others will judge you! We think it’s a great place to experiment with different creative ways of decoration. You can choose a look that will reflect your taste, personality or dreams 🙂

Here are some great trends that are garnering popularity this year:

Floral wall decal or sticker is a great way to instantly get a fresh, lovely look. Especially, a large piece of art looks elegant where everything else is designed in a simple way. More ideas here: http://tinyurl.com/musg86s

Combination of shades of gray, white and black always look classic. Take a look at this room …an indoor plant or an ornate chandelier can just add that luxurious but homely touch to this sophisticated bedroom!

If you love the rooms in luxury hotels, you can get that look as shown below. Works best if your bedroom is large. Note the kind of furnishing and lighting used, to replicate the look. Soft lights, huge beds, extravagant headboards, large windows will enhance the feel.

Ethnic prints specially Moroccan has been offering universal appeal for some time. These unique designs are easy to incorporate in curtains, rugs, cushions, bedspreads or any upholstery covering. See how this room combines the “flavors” of Africa with a brick finish wall.

Green and yellow shades when used in combination with white or black, can create interesting looks. While mild shades of green can exude a tranquil feel, yellow has the power to cheer you up in a second. If you love bright or neon shades, just remember to use them in small doses for the right effect.

Using natural materials like wood, metal, stone or brick is very much in this year. Like in this room ,thick planks of wood act as wall decor behind the bed, The irregularly shaped rug lends an eccentric look!

Tartan is a pattern which is excellent for a rough, rustic yet comfortable bedroom. With an old world charm, it’s easy to use for pillows, bed covers, curtains or other furnishing. Coupled with a wooden wall, it looks gorgeous!

Blue never goes out of fashion and is a safe bet too. Soft pastel blue, navy blue, bright blue and even electric shades look stylish and work together beautifully.

Finally, never underestimate the power of white…very few things are as magically peaceful as an all white bedroom. An old fashioned four poster will make it look all the more quaint!

FARM FRESH HAPPINESS, SERVED!

This room for a little girl, was designed and decorated keeping one thing in mind…the color “PINK”! The walls are a pale pink on which our farm animal decal depicts a happy, relaxed life 🙂 The blue clouds and the yellow sun can rejuvenate your spirit every morning…The curtains are light and dainty, ready to flutter with the slightest breeze. The bedding and the super cute stuffed toys are resplendent in different shades of pink. Don’t miss the lampshade…quirky and pink, again! The room decor is soft, tranquil and comforting…you can think of other settings where you can create a peaceful atmosphere and since our decal will look good on any light colored wall, a similar look and feel can be easily achieved…
