Decorating for the Artistic Soul

Archive for September 2008

I am a big fan of frogs and always have been since I was a young child. Most of my family and friends know this and love to buy me frog related items, stuffed frogs and other frog decor. Unique Decor Online has a whole section of frog-related gifts, decor and goodies. In fact, there is an entire animal decor section for you to browse and it isn’t limited to just frogs.

You can find cat lover gifts with lanterns, decorative toilet seats, wall clocks and much more. In fact, there is a whole section on animal themed clocks. This is a great idea for an animal lover in your life that is also functional and will last for a long time. Of course you can’t forget about the dog lover and there are gifts and decor for them as well.

The horse lover gifts are another favorite of mine and are sure to make any horse lover in your life very happy. There are so many great animal related home accents to choose from that you can find someone for any one and any occasion.

If you’re looking for a great animal related gift for yourself or someone special on your list, shop UDO for unique, handmade gifts that you are guaranteed not to find anywhere else.

Are you looking for a new way to spruce up your home or apartment or even just to decorate a particular room in your home or your office? Art has long been considered a great home décor option (back when people were living in caves, even) and today we have more art options than ever before.

Here are some types of art you can use in your home décor:

 Wall paintings
 Decorative furniture
 Mirrors
 Trinkets
 Sculptures
 Cultural themes
 Animal themes
 Historical eras

These are just a few examples of the types of art you can use for your home décor. You can use your imagination to think of where and how you want to place these art pieces. Hand decorated and designed items are fun to work with. Another great aspect of handmade items is that they are truly unique. They add a touch of art to your home or office that you won’t find in stores so you can guarantee that no one else will have any thing like it.

Art for home décor also makes for great gifts for anyone on your list and any occasion. There are so many opportunities for giving handmade crafts and art gifts that you’ll want to stock up on these unique finds for special people on your list. If you don’t know where to find unique art items, try Unique Décor Online. We have many great designs for both fun and function.

I went through some of my saved image files in search of my “favorite images of the day”. I thought it might be fun to share them here in the interest of art and fun.

Books being transformed back into trees… sort of.

Saw this while I was browsing today and just thought it was interesting so I decided to share.

Have a great day!

Did you know that fall is a great time of year for weddings? Others must agree because statistics show us that:

• That September is the most popular month for weddings? 14% of couples choose this month for their wedding day.

• October is the third most popular month for weddings. 12% of couples select October for their wedding day.

• 6% of weddings take place in November.

This means even if you aren’t getting married yourself, you may know someone or be related to someone who is getting married this fall. If so, you might want to search our site for great wedding gift ideas to give the special couple on their important day.

We can also help you with fall wedding decor ideas if you find yourself involved in this aspect of the wedding. Think about fall decor and what would make a nice fall-themed wedding.

Gourds and pumpkins are great for centerpieces and decorating tables. You can also consider things like hay bales for outdoor decorations, wildflower seeds and more.

From time to time, we like to post fun kids craft ideas because we think it’s a great way to spend quality time together and also to encourage art and crafts with children. When you instill a love of art with them at a young age, they will grow to have a healthy love and appreciation of it as adults.

Here’s a project we like for making window boxes:

You will need a plastic window box, sandpaper, acrylic paints, paintbrushes, masking tape, thin card, a small sheet, pencil with eraser tip, sponge and scissors.

1. Gather your materials and be sure children are wearing clothing that will not matter to get paint on it.
2. Lightly sand the window box so that the paint will be able to stick to it.
3. Use stencils, tape and other items to decorate the window box however you choose and in whatever colors and patterns you choose.
4. You can use your pencil to draw patterns and then trace over it with the paint.
5. Use the eraser to dip into the paint and create dots on your designs.
6. Allow to dry.

Now you can fill your window box and place it on display for all to see!

We talk a lot here about wall décor and the different ways you can use it within your home. We have some great wall décor options for you to choose from over at Unique Décor Online and we also try to give you useful tips on how you can decorate the walls within your home. But here’s a topic we haven’t covered yet- wall decorating for your garage.

Maybe you’ve never thought about it before but why not? There are many benefits to choosing to decorate the walls in your garage. For many people, the garage can be a messy storage area and if so, that’s another topic we might include later (how to clean and organize your garage) but for those who have some sort of order in their garage, decorating the walls can be a nice finishing touch.

Many people decorate their garage with an extra fridge for refreshments, a dart board or even a pool table. You can add wall hangings to brighten up the garage and to add more of a personal touch to your family space.

You can consider art décor clocks, 3D posters/pictures, a waterfall or other nature scene or something handmade and truly original. You might decide to add random wall art that you enjoy or you could go with a theme in your garage just like you can do with any room within your home.

You can do a beach theme, animal theme, fall décor or almost any other theme or décor idea you can think of. Your garage will then transform from just a place to park your car and hold your extra junk into something special and truly personalized for you and your family.
