Firefighter Wall Ideas

Peel + Stick Wall Decal
When painting your walls, stick with creams, whites and light blues or greys. If you are feeling adventurous you can even go for yellow, which a little girl would be sure to love. You need some thing light to contrast with the bright reds your firetruck bedroom decor will bring to the room. A brickwork or wood paneling look painted over in blue or grey (like in the picture at the top of the post) would also look good, almost like a real firehouse! 

As always, there are plenty of awesome decorations for the blank patches on your walls, from firetruck and fire fighter themed wall decals to some hot fire fighter artwork and posters. Don't overdo it though!

Fire Truck Floor Ideas

Lots of different color carpets can work in a firetruck themed bedroom, from reds and burgundies to blues of all shades and whites. Laminate flooring is always a good bet too. To decorate your floor some more, you'll need a great firetruck themed rug, and there's quite the range to choose from.

My personal favorite is the rug above: the colors are demure and easy to match with other decor in a typical boy's bedroom, and the pattern is simple yet adorable. If you want something a little smaller though, I definitely recommend picking up a cute firetruck shaped rug here. Shop around, you are sure to find something fun!

Twilight Bedroom Decor Ideas: Bella Swan's Bedroom

Bella Swan's Bedroom: Twilight Bedroom Decor Ideas
A Bella Swan, Twilight themed bedroom is a fantastic idea for girls of all ages who love the recently concluded Twilight Saga. Its also one of the more interesting bedroom themes you can pick due to the strange, mismatching colors that seem to work regardless. That's why I'll be outlining the essentials for creating your very own Twilight or New Moon Bella Swan themed bedroom paradise. Thanks to my cousin Emma who is a huge fan of the movies and inspired and helped with this post!

Twilight Bedding: Bella's Bedding

Purple Flocked Comforter Set
You can pick up an similar comforter and bed set as the one Bella Swan has in her room above, which is super convenient! Matching curtains are also available here. As of the New Moon movie Bella has a cute red throw on her bed as well, and you can pick up similar ones here. This should give you all you need for the complete Twilight bedding experience!

Twilight Bella Swan Themed Walls

Twilight New Moon "Dream Catcher" Prop Replica
Twilight Movie Poster
I could never figure out the color of Bella's walls, which always looked to me to change from blue to green depending on the lighting. The internet seems to agree though that the exact color of her walls is a specific shade of turquoise - Benjamin Moore's Blue Spa.

You can also decorate your walls with lots of Twilight themed decals and wall posters, but if you want to stay true to the source material some cute photos from your childhood or of you and your boyfriend, a pretty dreamcatcher like the one Jacob gave Bella (here's a budget similar looking one too), and a pretty framed picture of a wolf by your door is the way to go.

Twilight Bella Swan Themed Lighting

Multi Color Dragonfly Lights
You can have a lot of fun with the lighting in your Bella Swan themed bedroom, since Bella's room has tons of fun, different kinds of lights. Above her bed she has cute dragon fly lights and a string of paper lanterns. Above her dresser she has lights quite similar to these Rattan Ball lights, while on the dresser she has a set of tea lights: I think these ones would look great!

Twilight Bella Swan Themed Window Decorations

Sheer Blue Window Drapes

If you don't want to pick up the curtains that match the bedding, you can try to imitate the curtains Bella has in her room in the movies, which seem to be a blue sheer material covering a beaded curtain similar to this one.

Bella also has a light yellow/gold window scarf on top of all the other accessories on her window. Pretty complicated isn't it! I think this one would look great with all the other drapes I've recommended, so you shouldn't have any trouble putting it all together and making it look as great as it does in the movie.

Twilight Bella Swan Themed Furniture

Amber Pine Computer Desk
Bella Swan's room is filled with wooden, pine type furniture, giving it a very country feel. This is the kind of furniture you want to fill your room with if you want the true Bella Swan Twilight themed bedroom experience.

I've included a desk in the style you want on the right, check it out! You'll also want to pick up a cute dresser too to finish off the look. Combine it with some wooden or laminate floors, and you should be good to go.

Happy Decorating!

I hope you've found some awesome ideas for creating your very own replica of Bella Swan's bedroom from the Twilight Saga movies. If you liked this post and are looking for more ideas, don't forget to check out the rest of my blog for all the best bedroom decor and bedding ideas on the net!

Once you've chosen your bedding its time to decorate your walls. The best colors you can go for depend on your bedding scheme - if you've chosen a very dark piece of camouflage bedding you might want to for cream, grey or gunmetal blue walls so that your room doesn't look to dark. Otherwise you might be able to get away with a light green.

After that, you can fill in the blanks on your wall with some awesome military themed wall decals - tanks, planes, guns, soldiers, paratroopers, whatever you are into most! You can find even more great military wall decals here.

Glow in the Dark Outer Space Themed Bedroom Decor Ideas

Glow in the Dark Outer Space Themed Bedroom
When I was younger I had a glow in the dark outer space themed bedroom, and I certainly had a lot of fun with it! That's why I'm going to share my ideas for creating a great solar system and space themed bedroom with plenty of accessories that glow in the dark for extra sci-fi magic. You can find even more outer space themed bedroom decor ideas at my Squidoo page.

Outer Space Bedding

Space Rocket Ultra Soft Microfiber Twin Comforter Bedding Set, Gray Multi
Outer space themed bedding comes mainly in two different styles, a more realistic space look (see the bedding at the top of the page) or a more cartoony look (above). The cartoon look is great for younger children while older ones might prefer something that looks a bit more mature and realistic. You can also decorate your bedding space with some great space rocket shaped plush pillows or rocket themed pillow shams, some of which you can find here.

Outer Space Wall Decor

Glow in the Dark Stars and Planets
Wall Stickers
Contrary to what you might think, black is not a good idea for a space themed bedroom, since black makes the room appear far smaller than it is. Instead, opt for navy blue. It will look cheerier during the day and will be indistinguishable from black at night.

We want our space bedroom to glow in the dark, and an easy way to do this is to pick up a pack of glow in the dark stars, moons and planets and stick them all up. Most packs now come with a life time glow guarantee, which is certainly better than when I was a kid!

You can pick up loads of space themed posters online. I had one with a list of all the constellations on my door, a bit like this one, which had the bonus of being educational as well as pretty. There's also plenty of space and rocket themed wall decals for you to experiment with if you still have blank spaces on your child's wall.

Outer Space Floors

LA Rug Solar System Rug
If you've gone for a very dark shade of navy blue for the walls, you should get the carpet or laminate flooring to be as light as possible to avoid the room appearing too small. If you've gone for a lighter navy blue or another light shade of blue, you might be able to get away with a dark blue carpet. Either way, there are lots of space themed rugs available for you to spice up the floor of your child's space themed bedroom, such as the one above. Experiment!

Outer Space Lighting and Ceiling Decorations

3-D Solar System
Need to decorate your ceiling? These cute planet hangings can be hung from the ceiling and light fixtures, plus they glow in the dark! Not only that, but you get over 200 adhesive glow in the dark stars for your walls with every set. Its a complete solar system in a box!

Light Astronaut Flush Mount In Satin Nickel
As for lighting, there are some really cool fixtures out there, from incredible novelty ones like the one above, to projector lights that shine the images of stars and planets onto the ceiling while lighting the room, to awesome space themed alien table lamps. Take you pick based on what would look best with your space themed decor.
Room Magic Window Panels
Set, Star Rocket

Outer Space Window Decorations

There's a couple of of cute galaxy themed curtains available online. Check out the galaxy themed curtains on the right, or these minimalist black curtains with star detail. If you have gone very heavy on the wall decorations (since you don't want the room to look too crowded) or just can't find any space curtains you like, you can always pick up a plain set of black or navy blue curtains which match your bedding, and that should look great.

Happy Decorating!

I hope you've picked up some cool ideas for a glow in the dark space themed bedroom. Finish it off with plenty of space themed toys, and maybe a Nebula Plasma Ball just for fun. Your son or daughter is sure to love their new bedroom, just as much as I enjoyed mine as a child! Remember that you can find even more outer space themed bedroom decor ideas at my Hubpages page.
