BEDROOM DECORATING IDEAS
Designing for a toddler's bedroom isn't as simple as it sounds and your efforts can be quite frustrating at times. Suppose you have freshly painted the walls in your toddler's bedroom according to an expensive theme and splurged quite a lot of money on the decor. But next week, much to your disappointment you will find that your toddler bedroom decorating ideas have fallen flat on their face because the painstakingly painted and decorated walls have been scribbled all over with crayon art and collage.
Unlike popular decorating schemes in the past, our modern era likes to concentrate on one or two colors for a smooth, sophisticated look. Browns and white are typical colors today. Black and white is a great choice for modern decor and it doesn't have to be boring if you spice it up with a bright color like red or yellow. One color that is very popular is chocolate brown and this can be used in varying shades of darkness. I chose these colors for two reasons. First, they go well with most modern furniture pieces, and second, they give the room a nice warm tone.
Try to change the furniture layout of your room. This will expose different wall areas to your eyes revealing a different aspect of the bedroom. You can apply wallpaper to this newly exposed bedroom wall and create the feel of a new room. If applying wallpaper on the entire wall is not affordable, just apply the borders with a design of your choice and paint the wall with a contrasting color and see the difference.
Just like other basic decorating ideas, the very first thing you see when you are entering a room is the wall color, so make sure you cover your bedroom with the right color tone, usually people like soft color that represent peace. But of course you also could apply a dark color if you like and adding some lights to create the ambiance.
This furniture idea is so simple that it takes less than 30 minutes of your time and will definitely show you some good results. This works like wonders because there's a simple principle that runs behind any interior decorating themes.
One thing you'll want to pay attention to is your choice of lights. You wouldn't believe what halogen lamps can do to your bedroom's ambiance. Sometimes, they can make a poorly designed bedroom interior look magnificent in a snap just by casting the right shades onto the furniture. Halogen lamps work so great with dark-finished solid wood furniture and the effect is just always perfect.
When looking for fabrics for the room you want to remember that Fairies are light magical creatures that are delicate and little, so use lightweight materials. You can take a sheer material with anything fairy on it, such as flowers or sparkles, and drape this over the curtains on the windows, and from the ceiling to about half-way down to the bed to give the bed and bedroom a hidden and special feel.
Once you know the direction of your design, you'll have to look into the colors that will be playing around this part of your home. Remember that next to consistency of design in terms of home interiors, colors play the biggest part. That's because colors will be acting as an influential arbiter of whether or not things you've put in your design are going to come together and make the room look like one or scatter in pieces and make any well-thought of design fall apart.
Customize your bed linens: The bed is the centerpiece of your room. Making your bed a thing of beauty is a great way to make your room look beautiful. Invest in bed covers, sheets, comforters, and pillow cases that go along with the look that you want. Buying bedding that you love and perhaps reminds you of the beds in the best hotels is sure to give you a feeling of comfort every time you walk into your room after a long day at work. Of course if you feel like you're on vacation, you might not want to get up in the morning!
