45 Adorable Winter Tree Decorations Ideas That Suitable For You

Perhaps one of the best parts of Christmas is choosing a beautiful tree, stringing lights on it and then decorating it with ornaments and ribbon. Some families have a traditional way they decorate their tree, while others like to play around a little and change it up each year. There are many different ways to decorate a tree, as you can plainly see by viewing the many artificial tree setups at department stores this time of year.

While there are unlimited choices as far as adornments and color choices, there seems to be a few popular themes that people choose when decorating their tree. Some of the widely used decorating themes are detailed below.

The Homemade Tree – People who decorate in the homemade fashion would likely consider it a “traditional” tree, but only because it is tradition for them. Trees that are decorated primarily with homemade items include ornaments that have been passed down through the years, ones that the children made or that were gifts from special people. There is also likely to be a string of popcorn mixed with dried cranberries, or gobs of tinsel put on by child’s hands. These trees are sentimental and therefore, become a strong tradition.

The Traditional Tree – This tree is not named for the tradition of creating it each year, but for the traditional colors that adorn it. Decorated with clear or multi-colored lights, the tree is often covered in green, red and white ornament balls. Shiny or matte, these little globes are available in all sizes and material, from plastic, glass or metal. Ribbons in red or silver can swirl around the tree and be used to make a bow for the top, in place of a star or angel topping.

Decorating with white was a common retro look during the era of old Hollywood glamour. During the seventies, white leather couches and white shag carpets signified elegant home decor and a lifestyle of luxury. However, decorating with white is tricky and can be impractical considering the amount of actual living that goes on inside contemporary homes. As the temperatures drop and the snow falls, there are some simple yet incredibly gorgeous ways to incorporate white into your home decor, adding the picture-perfect sophistication of a winter wonderland into your own living space.

Really Up the Look of Polished Winter Elegance with All white, Everywhere

Keep it clean, simple yet sophisticated, and full of light without seeming too opulent or ridiculous by incorporating chic pieces. Paint the walls white, have white photo frames on the walls, white sheets, a classic chair with white cushions, and a classic 70’s style white fur or shag rug to have a bedroom look that is refreshing, but not overdone. Think along the lines of a relaxing spa. If bright white is too clean for your decorating taste, a slight-off-white works just as well to create an elegant and classic vibe for your space. Also, play with unique white touches and textures, such as a quilted headboard on the bed in your preferred shade of white, or add a white velvet stool in the corner. If an all-white bedroom feels stark and bleak for your palette, simply using white on the linens in the bedroom only can create a beautiful contrast with your walls and other furniture. Plus, white sheets always carry the fresh, clean feeling of luxury hotel linens. Or, do the reverse, and pair an all white-wall room with vivid and bold highlights. Adding a unique statement rug is a chic look for the contemporary home, and with the huge variety of luxurious area rugs that showcase bold contemporary patterns on the market, colorful details in a white room is certainly a sought-after interior home design.

Create a Chic Contrast

A splash of white on a single piece of furniture never fails to rich wall colors. The same applies to busy paint or a lavish wallpaper scheme, as busy walls balance with white furniture or white couches. A great example of mixing white into a room with colored walls is the pairing of cool blue walls with white detailing. This look works well in a kitchen or bathroom, as it has a clean, soothing, and pristine effect on the room. Or go for a contemporary and sophisticated look by pairing a white dining room with chic black furniture and accessories such as a wrought iron lamp or chandelier. If you already have a dark tabletop, counters, or glass cabinets, simply having white dishes can brighten up the entire space and add character simply by adding pops of white accessories.

Whitewash certain furniture if you prefer colored walls

For the kitchen, bathroom, or other rooms in the house, details such as cabinets are one of simplest yet most polished ways to add pops of white to the decor by whitewashing. Add bright, clean whiteness in a semi-permanent fashion. If you have brick accents, whitewashed brick is a chic and stylish way to add personality and contemporary flair to your living space.

Stunning Kids Room Design Ideas That Is Difficult To Choose 43

45 Stunning Kids Room Design Ideas That Is Difficult To Choose

Decorating kids’ rooms presents a unique set of challenges and privileges. On one hand decorating youthful rooms can allow the freedom of not having to conform to the more adult themes or feeling the need to limit how far we take a design or theme. Kids’ rooms can go over the top with whimsical touches, paint colors, accent pieces, and overly matching items. The choices are limitless when it comes to decorating kids spaces.

The challenge comes in the fact that kids grow up quickly and what is appropriate for a two year old’s room doesn’t often translate to a fantastic five year old room. What works for a ten year old probably won’t be still workable for a fifteen year old high schooler. It is important to keep in mind these transitions when planning and decorating a room for a child.

One thing to keep in mind in decorating youth rooms is the amount of ‘stuff’ that kids tend to accumulate. Small toys, clothing, books, drawings, trading cards, etc. all find their way into most kids’ rooms. Design areas for these items to be stored will save you the hassle of having a constantly cluttered kids’ room. Designing storage units, toy chests, book shelves, coat racks and other storage units will not only provide visual interest to your child’s room but will prove very functional as well. In determining what sort of storage you will be utilizing, keep in mind that your child is growing. Choosing an overly personalize, overly youthful looking storage will necessitate replacing it when your child out grows the design look. If you do not wish to be replacing toy chests, book shelves, and other storage consider purchasing classic looking furniture that will blend in with whatever decorations come and go as your child grows up.

Your child’s likes are a good place to start when deciding on a decorating theme. You can use their hobbies, interests or even favorite color as a basis for the decorations in their room. Keep in mind that the more personalized and over the top themed the more exciting and fun the bedroom will be. The down side is that the more personalized and over the top the room is, the more likely it is that when your child outgrows whatever that particular like was the more they are going to wish for an immediate change in decoration.

Not only residences, there have also been hundreds of metal shipping containers used for museums, restaurants and weekend houses. You would not even realize that these beautiful and creative structures were once hauling supplies across the country.

The shipping containers are stacked, painted and customized to form the outer structure of the houses. Glass ceilings, walls and windows add light and give the structures a very bright and airy look.

The Shelburne Museum, located in Vermont, features a Collectors House designed by interior designer Albert Hadley and architect Adam Kalkin. It was created by using 3 overseas shipping crates that make a very striking house. The building features glass garage doors, a large patio area, living space, bedrooms and a full sized kitchen.

Adam Kalkin has designed houses out of shipping containers before, but his last one is actually a luxury dwelling for the rich. He unveiled his creation at the Art Basel Miami Beach art show in December 2005 and the attendants were surprised to see lavish furnishings and a beautifully designed interior inside a shipping container. The project has the interesting title of “Push-Button House” because it can be loaded in the back of a truck to be moved and it opens up like a Murphy bed to expose the interior.
