Decorating a Child's Room with Tropical Themes
When I think of decorating a child's room tropically, I immediately think decorating with palm trees, sand, and mischievous monkeys. A good way to begin this transformation is to go to a local craft store and look at the wall adhesives. Most of the wall-paper like pictures easily stick to the wall, are movable, and leave little or no residue when your child decides he or she wants a change.
If wall adhesives aren't your style, or you want to make the wall a little more three dimensional, then you can take simple acrylic paint and create the palm trees (which are very easy to create for a child).
After the walls are done, find either green bedding or bedding with pictures on it that will mesh well with those that you have chosen for the walls.
If you cannot
find bedding that you and your child think will work, go to the
fabric section and look for the children's fabrics. Usually there
will be several tropically themed fabrics to choose from. If you
don't want to make the sheets you can always find a solid sheet
set that will match well with the fabric you choose for the comforter
and then either make the comforter yourself or ask a local seamstress
to create the blanket for you.
A good idea
for wall art to compliment these decorations, you can either use
the previously mentioned wall
adhesives or have your child create their own pictures to frame
and hang on the walls.
A tropical vacation wouldn't be complete without watching a sunset or the stars. To create this for your child you can paint a scene on the ceiling, or find star and moon wall adhesives to attach to the ceiling (that way the ceiling scene can be changed out quickly and easily).
There are several periodicals on decorating your childs room. You can also visit local furniture stores or view online furniture stores.
When designing your childs room, it is important that you keep in mind that eventually your child will out grow his/her room. Try sticking with neutral colors.
Always remember that to make your child happiest with the room, allow them to help in the process. If their shorter, let them help you place art at their height or even, to an extent, paint the mural (there are several easy things that they can do, like paint sand or grass).
Take them with you to choose the fabrics and wall art and let them help you decide where things go. They will feel a great sense of pride in the room that they helped create.
