Batman Themed Bedroom Decorating Ideas

Batman Emblem 3 Piece Reversible Super Soft Luxury Queen Size Comforter Set
Whether you're a fan of the movies, the comics, or the animated series (or all three, like me!) everyone can agree that the Dark Knight is pretty awesome. Batman makes a pretty great bedroom theme too, for boys and girls, featuring deep and stark colors and lots of interesting styles and designs. That's why this post will be dedicated to looking at all the things you'll need to make the perfect Batman bedroom.

Batman Themed Bedding and Pillows

DC Batman Bedding Collection
First of all you'll need an awesome batman bed. There's a number of different batman bedding sets, but the one above is probably my personal favorite. This collection comes with the comforter, a flat and fitted sheet set and one standard pillowcase. If you really want to go all out, you can even get an awesome Batman themed bed frame to put it on! I think that's pretty cool, and a great way to show that you are the ultimate Dark Knight fan. 
If you already have some black or navy blue sheets, an easy way to make a Batman themed bed without buying a full bedding collection is to buy a Dark Knight decorated blanket to lay over your bed.  For example, be sure to check out this fleece blanket featuring the Batman logo and the Dark Knight himself.

Batman Wall Decorations

RoomMates Batman: Gotham Guardian Giant Peel & Stick Wall Decal
Next up, no true Batman bedroom can have boring bare walls. A great way to jazz them up is with a cool Batman wall decal like the one above or this sweet set with many decals of Batman and the Joker. Decals are great as they are easy to apply and remove and don't leave any marks, since they don't use glue. There's also plenty of Dark Knight movie posters to collect if you are a fan of those, such as this iconic shot of Heath Ledger's Joker. If comic posters are your thing, check this one out.

Batman Furniture and Accessories

Batman Dresser
Batman furniture! It exists! Huzzah! If you need a place to store your things, the dresser above or this storage cube will do the trick, or alternatively this hanging organizer. Pick your favorite and go to town! Another cool idea is to have this life sized cut-out Batman watch over your room day and night. 
Batman Flying Bats Drapes
Finally, you'll want to dress up your windows with some sweet Batman window panels to match you bedding and the rest of your Dark Knight accessories. The drapes on the right are my personal favorite. You can also pick up a Batman window valence here. If you don't want to use branded curtains, another option is to buy plain navy blue drapes and use those instead.

So there you go, everything you need to make an awesome Batman themed bedroom and you have a lot of fun decorating. If you have more ideas or cool stuff I've missed, be sure to post it in the comments!

My Little Pony Bedroom Decorating Ideas

Hasbro Microraschel Blanket, My Little Pony I Heart Ponies
Back when I was a kid, My Little Pony was a fringe phenomena, but since the advent of Friendship is Magic, it has come leaps and bounds. Kids and adults love both the show and the toys, and people are going crazy for it. That's why a My Little Pony themed bedroom is a fun and adorable decorating idea for fans of the pony phenomena, and this post is going to look at all the basic you need for the perfect magical My Little Pony themed bedroom. 

My Little Pony Bedding and Pillows

My Little Pony Twin Comforter
First up, you'll need a My Little Pony bedding set and matching pillows to act as the centerpiece of your new bedroom. The colorful pink and blue My Little Pony bedding above is my favorite, but I also love this cute purple Twilight Sparkle twin comforter. Once you have the bedding, you'll want some cute matching pillows for your bed and sofa. There's a number of rectangular pillows with all the characters from the show for you to check out, like this cutie here

My Little Pony Curtains

Once your bed is set up, you'll next need some cute curtains to match the bedding. On the left is the official My Little Pony curtains that would look amazing with the bedding I recommended above. I love the beautiful pastel color scheme and the stylish heart patterns. 

Another option is to go for some solid color window panels in colors matching the pony merchandise, such as these curtains in candy pink or sky blue. You can also find a longer version of those curtain panels here. Be sure to get a cute color that matches your pony bedding, and it'll be perfect all year round. 

My Little Pony Wall Decorations

My Little Pony Wall Stickers
Next up, don't leave your walls boring and bare when there's so many magical pony themed wall stickers and decals you can use to turn your wall into a landscape for the ponies to play on, like the set above!  the cool thing about decals is they are easy to apply and remove and they don't use glue, so they don't make any marks on your wall when you take them off. Pretty handy! Another cute pony wall decoration that I recommend everyone have in their bedroom is this My Little Pony themed wall clock - it's so pretty!

My Little Pony Bedroom Accessories

My Little Pony Friendship is Magic
Fluttershy Plush Doll Toy
The obvious bedroom accessory for a My Little Pony bedroom are some gorgeous My Little Pony figures! You can find them all here, be sure to collect them all! A cute companion piece to a pony figure is a cute pony plush doll like the one on the right. You can find some of the other ponies as these links: Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, DJ Pon, Rainbow Dash, Princess Luna, and Octavia.

So that's my guide to the essentials of a My Little Pony themed bedroom wonderland. I hope you enjoyed it! If you did, be sure to check out the rest of this blog to discover many, many more fun-filled bedroom decorating ideas for kids, teens and adults alike. Happy decorating!

Gothic Bedroom Decor Ideas

7Pcs Queen Catherine Flocking Black and Red Comforter Set
To celebrate Halloween, this post will be looking at how to decorate a Gothic style bedroom. The Goth look is incredibly popular among teens and adults alike, with its dark and bold contrasting colors and elaborate and beautiful ornamental style. There's lots of great decor to choose from and tips to be given, so lets get started...

Gothic Beds and Bedding

Alchemy Gothic Abandon No Hope USA Queen Duvet /Comforter Cover Set
Gothic Night Canopy Bed-Queen
First up, you'll want the perfect Gothic bed to form the centerpiece of your room. If you really want to go all out, begin with a stylized Gothic cast iron bed frame like the one on the right, or a darkly colored wooden frame like this one for a more ancient and antique look. 

Once you have that, you'll want some bedding. Deep purples look great in a Gothic style room as well, such as this gorgeous bedding collection here. If you want patterned bedding, why not check out some skull themed bedding like this one?

Gothic Pillows and Cushions

Anne Stokes `Immortal Flight` Throw Pillow

Pillows and cushions are a quick and easy way to decorate a bedroom, and there's quite a few beautiful Gothic pillows for you to choose from. The one above is my favorite, featuring a gorgeous piece of Gothic angel art. Its part of a collection of angel art pillows, and they are all amazing, so why not pick up more than one? Plain black pillows also work well with Gothic color schemes, as well as lace decorated pillows and cushions. Toss them on your bed or on your sofa for an simple but effective Goth look.

Gothic Curtains

2pcs 59x98 Inch Sexy Black Vintage French Lace Window Curtain
Here's a classic decorating idea for a Gothic bedroom is a set of beautiful lace curtains, like the set above. Black is always a good choice as it'll match up with all of your other Gothic decor. For more of a vamp look, try deep colored satin or velvet curtains, such as this dark red curtain set or this velvet black number.

The Vampire Bats of Castle Barbarosa
Wall Sculpture

Gothic Wall Art and Decorations

Next up, you'll need to decorate your walls. Now, surprisingly, I wouldn't actually recommend painting your walls black - it'll make your room look ten times smaller than it is and it'll get claustrophobic. Instead, opt for deep reds, blues and purples, or a light green or grey combined with lots of black decor. There are lots of Gothic posters and wall art to choose from too. My favorites are the ones with gothic fairies and angels. Wall sculptures are a cool option too - check out the awesome bats on the right.

Gothic Furniture

Gothic Victorian End Table
If you aren't on a budget then a sweet option for decorating your bedroom is with some Gothic and Victorian style furniture like this crucifix decorated grey end table (you can pick up a gothic chest of drawers here). If you are on a budget but still want some cool furniture, a cheaper option is to check out charity shops, as antiques and old furniture works well even if it isn't official 'Gothic' merchandise. Go for grey colors and dark woods with lots of metal adornments for the best look.

An essential piece of furniture for a Gothic bedroom are metal candle stands, complete with white or black candles. If you don't want candles due to fire risks, then check out these LED lit fake candles, which look pretty realistic and make a fantastic alternative.

So that's my guide to decorating a Gothic style bedroom for teens and adults. If you like this post and want to see more, check out the rest of this blog for more bedroom decorating ideas for all ages, styles and genders. Happy decorating!

Pokemon Themed Bedroom Decor Ideas

Pokemon Big Pika Twin/Full Comforter with 2 Pillow Shams by The Northwest Company
I've been a fan of Pokemon since before I can remember, and I still play every single game as soon as they come out - I'm an addict! Lots of kids and teens are even more passionate about the Poke-phenomena than I am, and whether they love the games, the anime or both, a Pokemon themed bedroom is an awesome way to express their passion for the cute little critters. Here's how to go about it!

Creating a Pokemon Themed Bed

Pikachu Pokemon Bedding
Pikachu Pillow Pet
Sadly finding actual official Pokemon themed bedding is extremely difficult (though I've managed to find at least one, featured above) - I have no idea why! However there are a couple of ways around this. First of all, you can occasionally find some cute Pokemon themed blankets and throws than can be put over plain bedding to achieve the same effect. 

Secondly, there's a great selection of really novel and unique Pokemon themed pillows you can pick up, including my favorite, the Pokemon pillow pet! These are basically plush toys which open up to form a pillow - see the Pikachu one the right. Some more of my favorite Pokemon pillows include a Square Pikachu pillow, a Pokeball plush pillow, and a Pikachu face pillow.

Pokemon Wall Decor

Pokemon Anime Fabric Wall Scroll Poster
Luckily finding Pokemon wall decor to spice up your walls is vastly easier than finding bedding. There's a huge range of Pokegear to choose from, from Pokemon wall decals, Pokemon posters and my personal favorite, Pokemon Wall Scroll hangings

In terms of what color you want your walls, the best thing about Pokemon is that the sky is really the limit. You could choose to theme your room around a particular Pokemon, for example, in which case choose their color scheme - yellow for Pikachu, purple for Ghastly and so on. Or you could theme it around a particular Pokemon type, such as grass or electric Pokemon. Yellows and reds always work well in a Pokemon themed bedroom.

Pokemon Plushies and Toys

No Pokemon themed bedroom is complete without a veritable mountain of Pokemon plushies, toys and figurines everywhere! Check out all the best Pokemon plushies here. There's also a wide range of Pokemon figurines - why not collect them all?

A cool idea is to theme your room around a certain type of Pokemon, like fire, or a certain game series such as Fire Red / Leaf Green, and fill your room with plushies and toys from that type/game only. You could even switch it up every so often!

Happy Decorating!

I hope you've found some great ideas for creating your own Poke-bedroom. If you liked this post and want to read more, don't forget to check out the rest of this blog for all the best bedroom themes, bedding and decorating ideas on the net!

Pirate Themed Bedroom Decor Ideas

Pirate Themed Bedroom Decor Ideas
Yaar! So ye be lookin' to make yer very own Pirate themed bedroom do ye? The traditional pirate theme is loved by kids of all ages and genders, but especially boys, which is why it makes such a cute bedroom theme for them. Lets run through the basics of what you need to create your own Pirate themed bedroom.

Pirate Themed Bedding Ideas

Little Tikes Pirate Ship Toddler Bed
Pirate Treasure Twin Quilt
with Pillow Sham
If your young buccaneer is a toddler then you really can't miss out on the Pirate Ship Toddler bed, shaped like a real pirate ship! It even has a built in toy box, which is pretty cool. 

Otherwise there's plenty of cool pirate bedding to choose from. The one on the right is one of my favorites, and you can even get a matching window valance and decorative pillows for it, which give you the complete pirate look.

Pirate Wall Decor

Wall Decals Room Decor
For wall color I recommend either going with a shade of blue or a map-like shade of yellow like Weston Flax or the more bold Yellow Highlighter, but loads of colors can be made to work with the right decor. My little brother had an orange pirate themed room when he was 7, and I can definitely see a bold red working well with a lot of what I've seen!

No matter what you pick, you'll also need to cute art to decorate your walls. Pirate themed wall decals come in all different flavors, from imitation pirate maps, realistic pirates pictures to more cartoony pirates. Wall plaques are another great decorative option, especially my personal favorite: a wooden ship wheel!

Pirate Furniture

Pirate Extra Chairs Set of 2
Next up you can check out some savvy pirate themed furniture. There's styles for buccaneers of all ages: the one above would look great in a younger child's room, while this decorative table is perfect for playdates. Some pieces, like this array of pirate themed furniture would look fantastic in any bedroom! 

Pirate Chests and Accessories

You can't have a pirate themed bedroom without at least one pirate chest in it to store your child's swag and booty! My favorite is the one on the right, which is cast in designer resin around a wooden frame and just screams quality.

However, luckily you don't have to pay an arm and a leg for a pirate chest if you are on a budget, since there are plastic ones and even inflatable ones (I own an inflatable one which I've filled with chocolate coins, its awesome!) as an alternative to the wooden and more fancy sets. 

Happy Decorating!
