Shop around for your favorite!

There are other forms of wall art available if you still have room or if decals aren't your thing. I particularly like the four piece owl print poster set featured on the left, and you can also get some wonderful owl themed canvas art such as this one or this colorful pink number for your bedroom.

First of all, every bedroom needs some bold and stand-out bedding to be the centerpiece of the look. There are literally dozens of Paris themed bedding sets out there in many different styles and designs.

A colorful and minimalist option for tweens and teens is the blue and pink Eiffel tower reversible bedding collection featured above at the top of this page. Each set of this bedding comes with an enormous amount of stuff, making it a veritable bedroom in a bag. You get a reversible comforter which you can flip over for some variety, two toss pillows, two pillow shams, a flat and fitted sheet set with two matching pillowcases, and even a pair of window panels and curtains tiebacks. That's pretty amazing if you ask me, and wonderful value.

When you are painting the walls of a Paris themed bedroom, you need to decide whether you are going for a retro vintage style or a modern and minimalist style. If you are going for the more modern style, blacks, whites, grays and silvers are the way to go, while for the retro style of Paris bedroom, beiges, creams and browns work well.

Don't leave those walls bare after you have painted them! There are a lot of Paris themed wall art pieces out there that you can use to decorate your freshly painted walls, such as the gorgeous black and white Eiffel Tower canvas art featured above.

Oriental Bedroom Decorating Ideas

If you want to add a hint of exotic flair to your master bedroom, why not treat yourself to an oriental themed bedroom delight? This post is going to be looking at all of my favorite accessories and decor for an oriental bedroom, so read on and find some pieces that are perfect for you. 

Oriental Bedding Ideas

There are loads of different types of oriental themed bedding out there, from Thai styles, Japanese sakura styles, and dragon themed Chinese styles. There are so many that I've made a whole separate post featuring my personal favorites, which you can see here. I'll just feature a couple here.

Sherry Kline China Art Red
6-piece Comforter Set
First of all there is the beautiful Chinese style Dragon Jacquard bedding at the top of this post, which comes with a comforter, two pillow shams, two matching cushions, a neckroll and a bed skirt. The bedding on the right is another Chinese style of bedding, the sort of bedding your would expect to see in an Oriental palace! Its a great way to make you feel like royalty at night. It comes with the incredible embroidered comforter, two pillow shams, two decorative pillows and a bed skirt. 

Second, for a more Japanese and minimalist style of bedding, check out the gorgeous Blossom Tree bedding above. Each set comes with a comforter, two pillow shams, three beautiful decorative cushions and a matching bedskirt.

Oriental Wall Decor

Considering painting your walls to match the Oriental theme? The best colors depend on exactly what style you are going for - if you are going for a Japanese style with lots of blossoms and minimalist bedding, white works best, or perhaps a light peach or pink. For a bold Thai or Chinese, deep reds, browns, golds and oranges look fantastic, as well as grays.

Don't leave the walls of your bedroom bare when you are done! There are lots of fun ways to decorate the walls of an oriental themed bedroom, such as the gorgeous screen art painting above or by mounting the pretty paper fan on the left.

If you are going for a Japanese style, you might want to consider sticking up some Sakura blossom themed wall decals, which are easy to install and leave no marks when you remove them. You can also get some lucky kanji (Chinese/Japanese symbol) themed decals with their translations to put up here.

Oriental Themed Furniture

Powell Red Oriental 2-Door Console
If you aren't on a budget and truly want to go all out, why not treat yourself to some absolutely stunning Oriental themed furniture? For example, take a peek at the bold and deeply colored Powell Red Oriental Two Door Console featured above - it looks simply amazing. 

Oriental Furniture Rush
Grass Storage Chest
Another common style of oriental furniture is the rattan style rush grass look, as exemplified by the simple but effective storage chest featured on the right. You can also get a chest of drawers in this style.

If you prefer more solid furniture, stick to very dark wooden furniture for your bedroom, such as the Furinno Simple Design End Table or the Winsome Wood End Table. This minimalist style of furniture works especially well in a Japanese style bedroom.

Oriental Themed Lightning

Thai Style Blossom Lamp

There are also plenty or oriental themed lights to choose from! A very good option if you are on a budget is to hang up some beautiful paper lanterns like the one featured above on the right - they are very cheap and look amazing. Otherwise, you might want to try out one of the gorgeous Thai style lamps out there, like the one featured above on the left.

Oriental Bedroom Accessories 

Zen Reflections Juniper Bonsai
With all of that done, it is time to add the finishing touches to your bedroom with some fun oriental themed bedroom accessories. Asian style plants are a great option for adding life to a bedroom - why not give a cute miniature bonsai tree like the one featured above a good home?

ORE International Black Plum
Blossom Screen Room Divider
There are also plenty of Asian room dividers out there. My favorite is the Plum Blossom screen on the left, but you can find plenty more different styles here.

Finally, if you have gone for a lot of woven grass style furniture, I recommend checking out this stylish woven grass rug that would match it all perfectly.

So that was my guide to decorating an Oriental style bedroom. I hope you liked my selections and found some bedroom decor which is perfect for your room.

Captain America Themed Bedroom Decor Ideas

Is a hero in your home ready to assemble? Why not help them out with an amazing Captain America, The First Avenger and Winter Soldier, themed bedroom? This post is going to be looking at all of my favorite Captain America movie and comic book themed bedroom bits and pieces, so read on!

Captain America Bedding

Mary's Home Captain America Decorative Throw Pillow Cover
First and foremost, every themed bedroom needs a good set of matching theme bedding to act as the centerpiece of the new room. There isn't much Captain America bedding available out there, but I've found some great options for you to choose from.
Lt Twin Full Queen Size 4-pieces
Captain America the Winter Soldier

First of all, up at the top of this page and on the right are some colorful official Captain America themed bedding sets out there that are just perfect for a boys room.

A cool idea for parents on a budget is to match your child's existing sheets with a Captain America themed throw blanket, such as this Civil War throw.

You can also get some colorful Captain America themed decorative pillows to decorate your bed with. Up above is a great Captain America shield symbol pillow that would look wonderful, and you can also get a toss pillow shaped like the character itself here!

Captain America Themed Wall Decor

Captain America Giant Peel and Stick Wall Decal
The best colors to paint a Captain America themed bedroom is of course the patriotic red, white and blue! If you don't want to choose one of those colors, other colors can work well too, such as beige, grays and browns. Choose the color that works best for your decor.

Captain America Painting
As for decorating those walls once the paint is dry, there are plenty of Captain America themed wall art and decals that are an epic place to start. If your son loves the movie version of Captain America, I highly recommend the giant Captain America, First Avenger, decal of the character featured above. If he is into the comic book version (or both!), you can also get a wall decal of Captain America in the comic book art style.

There are other wall decorations which you can opt for instead of or in addition to the wall decals - check out the very artistic painting style poster of Captain America on the left for example. Its looks stunning and very colorful! If you like the retro look, you might also want to get him a Captain America vintage tin sign to hang up on his wall.

Finish off your heroic bedroom with some awesome Captain America themed bedroom accessories! My personal favorite is the Captain America shield wall light featured above (no, that's not a real crack in the wall, don't worry!). Its looks seriously cool, don't you think?

Funko Pop! CA2 Winter
Soldier Captain America
Vinyl Bobblehead Figure
There are a number of amazing stand-up posters out there that make both great bedroom decor and wonderful photo opportunities for when his friends come over. Here's one in the movie style, and here's another in comic book art style.

Last but not least, a fun decor idea is to have lots of Captain America figurines decorating your shelves and cabinets. The cute and kitsch bobblehead ornament on the right is good choice for younger comic fans, and here's a more realistic figurine for older boys.

So there you go, my guide to decorating a Captain America themed bedroom. I hope you found some bits and pieces that are perfect for you. If you liked this post, be sure to check out the rest of my blog for even more themed bedroom and bedding ideas for girls and boys of all ages.
