Animals make a great theme for a Boy's room
Monday, April 27, 2009
Picking the right theme is often the hardest part of decorating a room, especially when that room is for a child. We often put too much pressure on ourselves to create the perfect space for our "bundles of joy" and that pressure begins from the womb and doesn't usually subside until that child's messy habits obliterate any decorating attempts.
The trick with picking a theme is, unless you plan on redecorating often, to select something that can grow with the child. And while crayons and clows my work for the early years, you will soon find that theme growing old as your child matures.
Don't worry, there are plenty of great themes for boys' rooms, themes that can age gracefully, even if your child doesn't. The right theme can provide both the focus and the inspiration for a special one-of-a-kind room and can be adapted as your child grows.
One example of a great theme is to focus on the Animal Kingdom. After all, who wouldn't love a room that is all about their favorite pet, or the coolest animal on the planet (whichever he believes that to be).
By selecting an animal themed room, you are sure to have plenty of options to choose from, from posters to stuffed animals, and these things can be easily swapped out as the child grows. Stuffed animals can be replaced with sculptures, posters with paintings. The more mature your child becomes, the more grown-up the representations of animals can be... although without changing the base or othe overall theme of the room.
