Themes In Decorating

Themes in interior decorating represent each of our personality and interests. We can pick a specific idea that brings us joy and relaxation. Whether it is a child's room, family room, an entire apartment or home, you can take something of interest and enjoyment, and decorate inside.

This is going to be a fun section of the Web site where we can explore different ideas. We can create simple and inexpensive rooms which incorporate a variety of themes. Let's say you live in an apartment or condominium. Maybe the rules state you can't paint your walls. In many places the walls are white or an off white color.

This is where your personality can come out in developing a topic of interest that will be your focal point of your living space.

Your creativity with items you enjoy will give your room or rooms a new sense of identity.

Of course it can be done in one room or several rooms. You can do a theme for individual rooms.

Although her room here is empty now, the wallpaper reflecting the stars and moon theme remains, and all of her wind chimes hanging from the ceiling. When she buys a home, she will get her wind chimes. Sound familiar to you?. Allowing your children to take a topic they enjoy and include them (within reason) to help decorate the room.

Disney stories and characters have changed over the years, but they are still very popular. Taking stuffed animals and using colors from the animals for the walls, ceiling and accessories, will bring a child's room in their comfort zone.
