Teenage girls love to spend hours in the sanctity of their bedrooms. They need to have a relaxed and safe place that is reflective of their unique personalities in which to study, dream, be artistic and socialize with friends. Eventually, teenage girls outgrow the bedroom themes that saw them through elementary school. If your teen is in need of bedroom makeover, consider decorating their private place in a polka dot theme. She will love helping you to create the hip and fun style. The project may also help to bring both of you closer, as you work together to transform her room in the beautiful and colorful new theme.
Polka Dot Theme Decorating Ideas: Colors. The first step in transforming your teenage daughter’s room in the new theme is to choose her colors. You can accomplish this by simply thinking about her favorite colors and how the combination will work with the theme. You can also start looking at what polka dot room accessories are available and go forward from there. Think about the colors she has an affinity for and if this current favorite may be just a passing fad, or if she has always loved the color combination. For example, orange and blue may be her colors of the week, but in a few week’s time she may find the colors revolting and she is now surrounded by them. If pink has always been a favorite color, the combination of pink and black polka dots is a much safer bet.
Polka Dot Theme Decorating Ideas: Walls. The most important backdrop of a room’s decor is the walls. The largest palette on which to create in the bedroom, special consideration should be taken when choosing either paint, wallpaper or a combination of both. A fun wallpaper with small polka dots may seem like it is subtle enough for the room, but after adding the room accessories makes the bedroom look too busy. Painting the walls one of the primary colors of the bedroom theme and then punching them up with wallpaper cutouts or removable polka dot cutouts is a terrific idea and offers the opportunity to make easy changes to the design.
Polka Dot Theme Decorating Ideas: Bedding. A comfortable and stylish bed can create a lovely focal point of the room. Discount department stores such as Target, Kmart and Walmart carry a great line of juvenile bedding that feature different color combinations of polka dots. If you don’t see what you want in the physical store, check out their on line services. There is often a more expansive line offered on line. Be sure to add several throw pillows in complementary colors and patterns to really pull the whole look of the bed together.
Polka Dot Theme Decorating Ideas: Fun And Easy Extras. After completing the larger tasks such as decorating the walls and laying out new bedding, fill the room with cute and fun extras with the polka dot or plain circular shapes. A polka dot themed clock, lampshade and curtains can be used to give the bedroom an overall look that is complete and pulled together, without being overpowering. Mail order companies such as Tender heart Treasures, Terry’s Village and Collections Inc. all carry affordable and cute polka dot theme accessories that are appropriate for every room. Be sure to keep the colors to only two and vary the size of the polka dots throughout the room to keep the look interesting, but not too overwhelming.
