Decorating is at the top of many home owner's to-do lists. Now more than ever, our homes are becoming an extension of who we are, and a great way to express that is to decorate. What do you see when you first enter a room? By drawing the eye to a visually inviting tableau, you set the tone for the whole space.

Focusing on a chosen decorating theme or style (traditional, contemporary, shabby chic, art deco, country, Tuscan, Mediterranean, Moroccan, South Western...) is one of the best places to start when planning a room's decor. Once you have established your decorating style art, colours, fabrics, lighting, furniture, rugs and accessories can then be chosen to complete the look and feel of the room.

Kids room decor

Kids room decor - Decorating a child's room is a challenge filled with variables - not the least of which is just how long the room's inhabitant will actually like walls decorated with fuzzy bunnies or fire engines. In fact, the one thing you can count on is that what your child loved as a toddler is most likely not what she'll want for her room's theme when she's a "big kid." While you want your child to be comfortable in his own space, you don't want to spend a mint if you know you're going to have to redo the room again in a few years. It makes sense to choose decorating options that are easy to change so that a room's decor can grow with your child. Read
