Of course some people enjoy just chilling out all summer holidays with the kids whilst others get that whimsical desire to get up and do something different!
If that is you then you might want to consider using your downtime with the kids and redecorating their room for a new year with a new theme but what are you going to do? Here are a few ideas you could consider for a different theme away from the age old zoo, jungle or princess themes ...
Carnival - Old carnival prints and faded primaries can make a fun and exotic theme. Otherwise go for the bold, bright and beautiful particularly good if the room is a little dark.
African Safari - Desert tones combined with animal prints are chic at any age. Whilst you may not be able to create a mural yourself have a look around as there are some great wallpapers available.
Geography - Create a mural with a wall map and decorate with deep, earthy colors. Or choose a city and incorporate the highlights of that area. If you or your family travel a lot this is a good way to help your child know where you are and be part of the distance between you.
Coastal - Shells, soft ocean colors and nautical prints are popular choices particuarly of course if you live by the sea. On your summer jaunts pick up shells, rocks and make sand art with the kids to incorporate in the room.
Kiwi - Fill the room with buzzy bees, pavlovas, kiwis and all sorts of fantastic New Zealand memorabilia and of course not forgetting the All Blacks. This would be a room to make any kid proud.
Garden - Think English or French country style and incorporate soft florals, or hang a porch swing or hammock indoors for the ultimate relaxation spot. This is lovely if you are in a setting where you are able to incorporate and bring the outdoors in.
Sports - Instead of doing the basic theme, search online for inexpensive sports memorabilia to create a more upscale atmosphere. Scoreboards, posters and sporting equipment can add to the atmosphere. This is particularly good if your child is passionate about a particular sport.
