Decorating for the Artistic Soul

Archive for the ‘Art Decor’ Category

Though we grow older, we never grow too old for Easter candy. Jelly beans, chocolate eggs wrapped in colorful foil wrappers and marshmallow hens and chicks coated in colored sugars are reminiscent of childhood for all of us. If you are looking for a light-hearted gift for someone like a neighbor or coworker, a collection of these candies, served up in a cup and topped off with a decorative ribbon might be just the right gift.

First, scout around the local second hand shops and antique stores in your area. Look for mismatched tea cups, coffee mugs and matching saucers if they are available. Focus on spring or Easter themes. Mugs with pictures of Easter bunnies or tea cups with floral patterns are an excellent choice for this project. If you have trouble finding cups there, you can try your local dollar-type store for seasonal cups.

Next, purchase a variety of candies, depending on the tastes of your intended recipient(s). You can fill the cups with alone type of candy or mix and match. It’s up to you. If you’re going to use marshmallow candies, get the kind that is individually wrapped. Opening a larger package and separating the marshmallows will cause them to dry out and become stale.

Cut a length of pastel colored ribbon. Center the bottom of the cup on the center of the ribbon. Bring the ends up and tie the ribbon in place. Slip a hand-printed gift tag onto the ribbon and tie again. Curl the ends of the ribbons and let them dangle from the cup. Set the cup on its saucer, if bought one. Your gift is ready.

Candy-filled cups make nice place settings for an Easter get-together too. You can use them instead of place cards by putting each guest’s name on the tag.

Kids develop their own unique personalities and have certain likes and dislikes just like adults. Therefore, kids deserve to express their creativity too and this is why you can find a large number of themed décor items designed just for kids. Your child will enjoy having the freedom to decorate his room with unique decor that suits his personality the best. Your child does not have to live in a dull, boring bedroom when it’s so easy to make it more interesting and suited to his or her taste.

You can find all types of cartoon characters, movie themes and a variety of sport themes designed specifically for kids. The main pieces are usually bedding and curtains because these make a huge difference in the overall look of the room but don’t stop there. You can find many other pieces that can pull the look together as well.

For example, there are a variety of clocks found in all kinds of fun designs such as, animals, teddy bears, sports, children’s stories and nursery rhymes to name a few. Mirrors are another option that can be found in a variety of styles just like the clocks. If you have the room, you can even set one corner up with a table and chairs set where your kid can do homework, crafts or sit and read a book.

You may even be able to find an area rug that matches the theme you choose to help accessorize and add to the beauty of the room. Using these unique décor ideas for kids can help to turn his or her bedroom into the personal space needed to feel comfortable. When kids are relaxed, they tend to sleep better, do better in school and have a more pleasant attitude in every area.

It is easy to get a new look for a room by only changing the curtains.  It only takes a small amount of time and can drastically improve a room.  All you need is the time and the imagination to make it happen.

You do not even have to use regular curtains that cost a great deal of money when you get a curtain rod with pinch clips.  Regular material from the fabric store can be used to create many different combinations for window treatments.  Simply clip the material onto the rod and adjust it until it looks the way you want it to with no sewing.

Another choice for window décor is to spend the extra money for premade curtains and regular rods.  It only takes a few minutes to put the curtains on the rod with their premade loops.  If you are inclined to sewing, you can make these same kinds of curtains with material by sewing strips of fabric to the top of the material that loops over the rod.

For those who really want to put some money and thought into their window treatment, hand painted ones are the best option.  There are those that are premade and some places create them to custom orders.  Create your own by using regular blinds and decoupage to make a great custom blind.

Having great window treatments can improve the look of the entire room.  You can make your own or buy them predesigned.  The only limitations are your imagination and your budget.

It’s that time of year again and if you are looking for something great to do with the kids or as a family, then creative Halloween decorations may be just the thing. If you walk around the average neighborhood at Halloween time or in the fall, you’re likely to see most of the same types of decorations floating around. You will find pumpkins, witches, jack-o-lanterns, black cats and more.

If you want to do something really different this Halloween season, you’ll need to focus on some creative ideas and crafts that can be used as decorations. Even the Halloween costumes that you or your children wear can be made uniquely.

Here are some ideas of creative Halloween decorations that you can do as a family:

  • Glass vases are great to decorate around the inside of your home- fill them with goodies and display then wherever you choose
  • Masks- hanging a creepy mask on the front door or using it to decorate a scarecrow are great, unique ways of decorating for the season
  • Small accents- small accents can be a great subtle way to decorate for the holiday without going overboard
  • Spider webs- these can be made of many materials around your home and they are a great deal of fun for Halloween décor. You have many options on where and how you can use them.

These are just a few creative Halloween decorations that you can try this season. If you’re looking for something to do with the kids, you might also want to be sure you allow them creativity to think of some of their own ideas.

Do you love to travel and see the sights of the country or even of the world? You probably like to bring a little piece of this home with you each and every time you return from a trip as well, don’t you? If you’re like many people who enjoy traveling, you might also like to bring a little bit of each destination home and incorporate it into your interior décor and design.

There is a fine line between collectibles and clutter so if you plan to do this, you need to be sure you do so smartly. For example, you want to be sure the pieces that you bring into your décor fit with the design of the room or blend well with the existing décor. You also want to go with simple pieces that won’t overwhelm the room and the design.

You could bring back small treasures that become mantle pieces or decorative items throughout the room or you may choose one large piece that becomes a new centerpiece for the area that you are decorating. It is important not to bring in too many large pieces that take up space and can overwhelm the room.

Here are some ideas to bring some travel home to your interior décor:

  • Look for specialty shops and locally made items
  • Look for custom items or customizable trinkets and gifts from your trip
  • Buy something homemade or handmade
  • Buy something unique to the region/ of the local area

When collecting these fun pieces for your interior décor, it’s also important to capture the memories surrounding when and where you got them. It’s a good idea to write down the time and date and location when bringing home something special from your travels.

Would you like to have a more tranquil living space in your home? Are you looking for a soothing solace after a long day at work, school or with other responsibilities? It can be very relaxing and rewarding to come home to a tranquil living space that you have designed and decorated yourself. This can also be a great way to spend time with family members and enjoy time together peacefully.

There are some simple things you can do to design and decorate a tranquil living space for your needs. Here are some tips:

  1. First, get rid of the clutter. A cluttered space is going to create stress for you and those who spend time in the space with you. Clutter will invade your tranquility. Get the clutter out of your space even if you’re not sure what to do with it yet. You can store it or sort it later. For now, just move it out of the living space.
  2. Pick furnishings that are comfortable. You want to be sure the furniture is soft and comfortable. Even if you are unable to purchase new furnishings, you may still be able to adjust the ones you have to be comfortable in a way that suits your budget.
  3. Choose soothing colors. Your color palette should be soothing with relaxing colors like shades of blue, beige and green. Classic white and shades of cream are also useful in your tranquil living space.
  4. Use lighting to set the mood. You can use the right type of lighting to set the mood you’re going for in the room. You want to set the stage for relaxation with soft, adjustable lighting that can be turned down when you need it softer.

With making just a few simple changes to your living space, you can create a tranquil area that will help you relax each and every time you come to it. You can also feel content that you helped to design and decorate it yourself.

We’ve discussed it before here on the blog but metal wall art home décor still remains a great choice for anyone looking to spruce up their home or add a unique look to their room. You may already know that how a person decorates their home can say a lot about them. Some people send the wrong impression just because they don’t know any better.

When it comes to home décor, it doesn’t have to be about flowers or plaid or the country styles you may be used to seeing in home décor magazines of the past. Modern home décor is about so much more and it’s about finding your own style and discovering how to make it work for you.

One way that many people have found is with metal wall art. This can be handmade and comes in a variety of styles and shapes to choose from. Abstract metal art looks crisp and modern and can brighten any room and blend with any theme.

Many people find that metal wall art home décor incites certain feelings or emotions in them when they see it. Since this will be going in your home, you want to get something that sends the right feelings to you and the right message to your guests. These handmade metal art pieces are one of a kind and you certainly won’t find them on the walls of every other home in town. This is what makes it so unique to you.

You don’t need to suffer with bland white walls and metal wall art means you don’t do any permanent changes to the walls. This is great for people who are renting or who anticipate their style may change over time and they want a quick way to decorate and take down if needed.

Metal wall art can also be used to help finish up a design or decoration you have already started in a room. It can be that finishing touch that you really need to bring the whole thing together. All you need to do is shop around and pick the right metal wall art home décor pieces to suit your needs and finish off your décor.
