Decorating Around Your Tropical Bedding

More and more people are paying attention to the decor in their bedroom today, thanks to the decorative sheets and blankets now available. There are more ways to turn the bedroom into a tranquil place with bright or soft colors. Tropical bedding is a popular choice and decorating around that can be a matter of personal taste and personality.

Beach theme bedding offers a wide range of symbols, designs and colors to go with it. You have a selection of soft colors or bright, cool colors or bold combinations to choose from. The large selections of designs and symbols range from the simple or intricate. With choices vary from warm beaches to rolling waves, seashells to tropical havens.

Knowing the colors that you want to use is the first in creating the theme you want. Popular bold tropical colors include coral, blue, turquoise, green, and yellow. But soft colors like a tropical sunset can work. Your personal preference and mixing and matching bold and soft can bring the right combination of colors to create the atmosphere you are looking for.

To get the effect you are looking for, the walls and floors will also need attention. One way to do this is painting the walls a soft shade of brown or even a bronze, which works well with wooden floors. Hanging curtains that are light and flowing in a white or off white color. Displaying simple pieces of art on the walls will add to, rather than take away the bedding, which can be the centerpiece of the room.

Muted walls accented with bold colored accessories bring the color out without being too overwhelming. Or you can use bold colored walls with natural and neutral colored accessories. Bold and natural color combinations are what the tropics are all about, their natural beauty. Even a few throw rugs that are full of color will add a fun atmosphere.

When it comes to accessories, staying away from the mainstream novelty items is best. Everyone will have the most popular ones. To pull everything together, use your own creativity. Shells are good when left natural looking and on their own, or displayed around a light that has a tropical touch to it. For an added touch, a basket woven with bright colors and accessories inside, like lotion, beach towel, and umbrella can be sat in the corner.

The window treatment of the room can add or take away from the theme you are going for. Whites and light colors work well, but so do lightweight materials. If going for prints, walls should be muted, otherwise it can be too overpowering. Consider some plantation shutters or wooden blinds for a true tropical touch.

Bringing the tropics to your bedroom everyday is simple when you start with beautiful tropical print bedding. Accessorize with what matches your own personal taste in tropical decor and what makes you feel like you are in the tropics. The right colors can give the impression that you have just stepped into a tropical haven, each time you enter your room.
