Boys Bedroom








1. Furniture. As soon as is practical, buy well-made full-sized wood furniture for the room. The bed sizes can be changed to accommodate a growing child, but the other furniture can be easily made to reflect the tastes of of both young and older children and need not be downsized.

2. Paint. Paint your child’s room instead of using expensive wallpaper. The room will be easier to change (no scraping!) and more durable. Create fun shapes such as stripes or geometric shapes with your inkjet print and window decal paper available at your local office supply. This is allow you to quickly update the windows or walls and give the room a bright, cheerful feel.

3. Floors Choose quality floor coverings which will prove durable under the natural wear it will undoubted receive in a child’s room. Choose neutral colors and avoid patterned coverings that can become quickly dated. Add an area rug in a fun pattern that can be changed in a couple of years.

4. Themes. Create themed roman shades easily with sheets. Or use roller shades and decorate with fabric or cut-out shapes that can be attached with fusible interfacing available at any craft or sewing store. All you have to do is iron it on.

5. Go wild. Go wild with the rest! You easily and inexpensively change the accessories in the room to reflect your child’s current interests. Among the items you can change:

  • Window treatments, tiebacks and rods
  • Drawer knobs and pulls
  • Wall color
  • Wall accessories (posters, clocks, art, shelving, etc.)
  • Lamps
  • Bedding and linens
  • Storage bins and baskets
  • Throw pillows

    DÉCOR TIPS & QUIPS from AlphabetPIX.com

    Bringing Out Your Inner BOLD!

    Bill Blass said, “Style is primarily a matter of instinct.” Decorating takes on a new meaning for each individual. Clever and chic for Janie may be yesterday’s yawn-fest for Carol. Different tastes in dècor mean different furniture, artwork and color palettes. So what is the rule of thumb for making your place zing if it’s not a certain style, pattern, or color?

    Bold, baby! Bring out the Y-O-U!

    Boldly say what you want to say when designing a room. Make a statement and let your personality shine through. If you go in for the palest blues to soothe and relax, add a custom zing to make it pop! Love black and white photography? Maybe even some of that ultra-hot photo alphabet wall art in black and white? Splash in some passionate pink or revved up red on the wall to make it sizzle.

    No longer are walls content with neutral shades. Any color of the palette goes! Splash on muted melons or eccentric eggplants with savvy sage. Classic colors cozy up with velvety crimsons and Dijon yellows. Color is fantastically bold and beautiful! Rich textured throws, swags, rugs and runners jazz up every room, every time.

    Patterns are all the rage now, too. Twists and twirls, paisleys and pearls! Did you ever in a million years think of dotting stripes and striping dots? Designers these days are pulling out all the geometrical stops. Paisley mixes with all sorts of combinations-checks, polkas, and weathered solids. Discover a new way of looking at the world around you in different shapes and designs.

    Mix it all with gorgeous gilding in silver and gold. Toss in a few well-chosen accents-bold and beautiful. And with the trend of decor becoming more and more personalized, a meaningful piece of photography will make you feel right at home. Black and white as well as the historic look of sepia photography looks gorgeous in any room. Add all these ingredients together, and you’ve got yourself a decorating design that not only expresses your individual style but does so as personally and beautifully as you want it to.

    Whatever you want to say while decorating, say it with your own personal sense of style. Put it out there for the world to see and don’t look back! Embrace your individuality whether your nature is “Janie jazzed” or “Carol calm”. Express yourself! When people enter your home they’ll shoot you a complementary smile, knowing it looks and feels sooooo perfectly like you. And no one can do YOU better.
