“A vase of flowers or greens will bring even a dull hotel room to life in the most delightful way. The small amount of trouble or expense involved is honestly repaid in real decorative effect. If you find cut flowers too extravagant, stick to the greens. Laurel, rhododendron leaves, huckleberry or pine will all last many days, even weeks.” – Dorothy Draper

“Replace white walls with unexpected neutrals like camel, olive or baby blue.” – Jonathan Adler

“Be faithful to your own taste because nothing you really like is ever out of style.”  – Billy Baldwin

“Design is a plan for arranging elements in such a way as best to accomplish a particular purpose.” – Charles Eames

“Forget the floor plans. Arrange the furniture where it is the most comfortable and will look best.” – Albert Hadley

“For a house to be successful, the objects in it must communicate with one another, respond and balance one another.” – Andre Putman

“Good dressing is largely a question of detail and accessories.” – Elsie de Wolfe

“I believe a rich, dark color actually makes the walls recede, giving the illusion of a larger space.” – Carrie Fundingsland

“When in doubt, add mirrors for extra glamour, put a piece of mirror on top of a cabinet to make it sparkle or in a niche to create the illusion of depth.” – Jonathan Adler

“Mix it up. It’s much more interesting and fun.” – Ariana Villalta

“Stick to the things you really love. An honest room is always up to date.” – Billy Baldwin

“When in doubt, eliminate. If you’re wondering whether something looks right, take it out. If you make a mistake, correct it instantly, don’t try to live with it.” – Thomas Britt

“When you want to transform a room into an entirely different animal, change the color.” – Billy Baldwin

“You can never judge a paint hue by the liquid color in the paint pot. You must apply it to a wall, wait for the paint to dry, then decide.” – Dorothy Draper

“Color is alluring. It automatically makes you feel like pouring drinks and being festive.” – Sarah Bengur

“A well-proportioned coffee table is your pebble in the pond – everything else ripples out from there.” – Jeff Lincoln

“Accessories are where I like to make a statement: They’re the soul of a room.” – Austin Varner

Boys Decor Ideas!

12 Fun Ways to Bring Imagination to Boys Rooms

Every little boy deserves a stylish and inventive room where he will want to hang out! Creating the best boys room decor can be a lot of fun, too, especially when you involve your child, letting him help to choose themes and color palettes. Because they are growing up fast, it can be helpful to pick a classic theme, or at least try not to go overboard with an a-la-moment trend. His favorite cartoon character may seem like his world now, but in a year or two he may have moved on to another interest altogether. Removable wall art is the perfect opportunity to make a big statement without breaking the piggy bank, and without commitment anxiety. It’s a lot easier to peel away a dinosaur wall decal than it is to replace a T-Rex shaped bed! A few traditional boys room themes that never seem to get old, and have a knack for growing with your son, are sports, nautical, camping, and space. Other popular boys decor themes include dinosaur boys rooms, cars and trucks, jungle adventure, robots, and superheroes. Also, keep in mind that you do not have to commit to a particular theme at all! You can simply focus on arranging the room in an engaging way that will present plenty of opportunities for him to enjoy playing, reading, sleeping, and entertaining friends in his own special space. Speaking of making a space special, dry-erase wall decals are an interactive way to decorate his walls while encouraging his creativity. Message boards make great wall art for kids because they create a re-usable space to doodle, write notes, and play tic-tac-toe. Since WallPops are so easy to remove to make way for changing tastes, they are truly perfect for kids decor! And, because they are reusable, you could even recycle wall art into a little brothers room when the time comes to revamp! Browse these fun boys room decor themes with your little one for some inspiration.
