I always have such a difficult time trying to pick the right decor for a remodeling project, why? It’s really not as difficult as it appears to be. There are just so many wonderful things to choose from that it becomes really hard to decide on what to purchase. I find things I really like, but actually visualizing how it will look is something altogether different.
When deciding on bedroom decorations, there are so many factors to consider. Be sure you have in mind what you want your end result to be. Do you want a more feminine look such as for a daughter’s bedroom, or a more masculine look for your son’s bedroom? Or maybe you are going for a more romantic look for your own bedroom. If it’s a guest bedroom, perhaps you want something of a more neutral nature.
Whatever you choose, keep in mind that it’s your style that makes it personal. If you like bold and bright, then go for it. Some people like soft and cool. But in the end, it’s your choices that will bring the design together.
The Right Stuff
How do you find the right stuff for your style? Well, that is all up to you. You may find just the thing you’re looking for in the most least expected places, like garage sales. Everybody loves a good bargain! And I, for one, have found some really nice stuff for decorating at garage sales, second hand shops, and surplus stores.
If you’re not a garage sale shopper, then there are many alternatives for finding really good bedroom decor that will not cost you a lot of money. There are always really good sales at different stores. I always check on line first to see what is available. If the items I really like is a bit above my budget, I simply check other places, or wait a while to check back to see if it’s on sale. I can tell you, being patient does pay off.
Let’s Take a Look
When I got ready to give my son’s bedroom a new-look, I already had in mind what I was going for. He was about 13 at the time. I didn’t want anything too childish, but not anything too grown up looking either.
He loves the outdoors, as I do. Hunting ducks, deer, hogs, and fishing are his favorite things to occupy his time. Keeping this in mind, I decided to go with different shades of green for his walls. It creates this beautiful design by using two different colors at the same time on a split roller. For me, bedroom decorations are not only what you hang on the wall, but the whole design in general.
It turned out beautiful!! I love the way the green tones blended together to give that “outdoor” feel. I then used the darkest color green from the wall paint and used that to paint the trim work. Awesome!
Make It Personal
Next, comes the really fun part. I had to shop for all the things to make the room feel like his own personal space. I wanted him to feel like he had personally designed his own room.
So with that in mind, I began to shop for things I knew he liked. I wanted something that would be more long term in speaking. Children go through fads about what interests them from time to time, but I knew there were things that would always stay dear to his heart-hunting and fishing. He began hunting when he was very young and, at age 13, still loved it. I felt like this was the right direction to go. Speaking of direction, as a mother, we always want our children to go in the right direction-so I actually had that in mind as well.
Tying It All Together
Once the painting was finished and the wall decor was hung, I focused on what I should do about the bedding and curtains. There were so many colors and designs to choose from. What would really be the perfect match?
I didn’t want anything too bold. Although I love bright colors, this was not my room. I had to consider his taste and what he would like to see every day when he walked into his bedroom. I didn’t feel green would work, since I had already painted the walls and trim with that color: too much green. So, I went with gray. The gray comforter set I bought was just perfect to tie everything together. Place a few throw pillows of matching colors-just the right touch. I also found gray curtains to match.
Loving Your Space
As I stood back to look at my creation, I was so very excited about the outcome! I had done it! It had turned out exactly as I had hoped. Everything went together beautifully!
Now for the real test! Would my son like his new space as much as I hoped he would? The answer: YES!
As he walked in and looked at his room, he began to smile when he saw all the hunting decorations I had on the walls. He even commented on how cool the walls looked with the color-meshing technique I had done. Yes, I was one proud mom. I’ve even heard some of his friends comment on how he has such a cool room.
I still have a few minor details to compete to make it complete, but as I have stated, it’s all a work in progress. The main thing to remember is to make sure the bedroom decorations match the person who will be spending all that time in the bedroom. Make sure you know your audience. Never be afraid to try new things.
