Beach Rugs Bring the Beach to You

Girls Longboard Rug
There are a number of novelty rugs that allow people to bring certain themes into their rooms. The array of beach rugs available now allows people to add a touch of the beach to a recreation room, bathroom or even their bedroom.

Among the different design used for beach rugs are the styles created to look like surfboards. The surfboard rugs are shaped in an elongated style with a pointed tip and flat back end. This makes them look exactly like a surfboard. The shape is enhanced by the colors and patterns used on the surface of the rug. The surfboard rugs usually have stripes running down the center section which are in contrast with the solid color used for the rest of the rug. The colors available for these rugs include bright orange, turquoise blue, gray, pink and black. These hip novelty rugs can be used to accent a teenager's bedroom by placing them in front of a bed, dresser or desk. They can also be used to enhance a beach themed bathroom by placing them in front of the tub or shower.

In addition to the rugs created to look like surfboards, there are also other beach themes using turtles and sandals. The sandal rugs are designed to look like a pair of beach flip flops placed side by side. This unusual type of rug has a solid colored outline to create the illusion of the rubber bottom as well as solid colored fibers running down the center in the shape of the thong straps. The main surface area where the foot would normally be placed on the sandal is decorated with patterns of tropical flowers. Sandal rugs can also be used to accentuate a teen's bedroom as well as a child's bedroom. They can also be used in a bathroom or a recreation room designed with tropical décor.

The turtle rugs are both colorful and whimsical so they can be used in rooms where children play or sleep. These rugs have the classic round shape for the body with protruding sections for the four legs and the head. The outer area on these rugs is solid colored in shades of blue, pink or green, with the inner area made of patterned fibers in the shapes of tropical flowers. All of the beach themed rugs can also be used to accent a sun room, sauna or pool room where the furnishings are also of a beach or tropical nature.

Surf's Up Baby!

Hawaiian Surf Print Baby Bedding
This piece will be taking a look at a few of the reasons that parents might want to go with Hawaiian baby bedding or surfer baby bedding. Believe it or not, there are actually many great arguments out there. This is especially true for those parents that already have this theme present within their home.

Maybe some people own a home in Hawaii or a similar area. If the rest of your home has a Hawaiian theme then why would your child's room be any different? There is no reason to go against the grain simply because the room is the baby's room. These designs actually complement a baby's room quite well.

Let's not forget that these themes work in so many homes because, no matter what room you decide to implement them into, they offer softer pastel types of colors such as softer pinks, and blues and purplish hues. These tones are all baby friendly in the first place. Even if the rest of the home does not have a Hawaiian theme, or a surfer theme, any home with a softer pastel scheme could easily accommodate a baby room with surfing style decor. Also, remember that white is a good wall color because many of these designs have a base white within them.

Some of the bedding is really quite neat as far as designs go. There are the simpler designs, but there are also those designs that feature embroidered artwork of surf boards and waves. Even when the child gets older he or she is likely to appreciate such a design scheme. Don't forget that these smaller pieces of bedding can be stored away just in case another baby was to come along in the future.

There are many online retailers that specialize in selling these themes. Some offer them among other distinctive themes while others might specialize solely in these themes. The typical search engine search should display plenty of catalog style images for the decorator to consider. Since this is one of the most popular types of baby bedding themes, there are actually many designs to choose from when dealing with most retailers.

Surfer baby bedding or Hawaiian baby bedding really is a good choice for many of the reasons discussed above. One doesn't have to live near the beach to vouch for this. Many people that live in the inner city actually enjoy these design schemes simply because they are something fresh and new.

Beach Quilts/Seashell Quilts

Island Cottage Beach Quilt
Being surrounded with shells and palm trees can make a person release all worries and cares. The sound of the ocean beating on the sand and birds calling is so relaxing. The warm sun warming the skin and hair; the breeze smelling of salt; it is all so serene.

After the vacation is over and everyone returns home, people miss the experience of being at the beach.

There is nothing better at capturing that feeling of relaxing at the ocean than decorating the bedroom in a beach theme. It can be so easy to do! Cover the walls with picture frames filled with photos from the vacation. Framing a favorite shell is a great way to memorialize the trip. Bringing items from the beach home help embody that beach-side feeling long after the trip is over.

Beach quilts are a great way to pull the décor together. They come in all colors and styles!

For kids and young adults, surf themed quilts are wonderful. The colors are bright and the block styling makes it youthful and trendy. Also look for quilts that have a patchwork style because it can have a variety of colors all on the same quilt. Another great option is a beach quilt with a flip-flop design. That shoe is iconic of days spent at the beach and will surely remind anyone of a fun memory playing in the sand.

For a more reserved palette, seashell quilts are beautiful. Greens, blues, and sand tones really stand out against the fair bone shades of shells. Whether seashell quilts that have more range in color or mono-tone are preferred, they are always a statement in a beach-themed bedroom. Bold neutrals are an excellent choice for a bedroom. Corals and blues match wonderfully with soft browns. Quilts that have those colors are always beautiful.

Whatever style appeals the most, whether it is bold and bright or neutral, beach quilts fit every style. Beach quilts can bring back memories of a fun vacation or bring home the serenity found sitting on the sand.

Hang 10 with surfer beach signs, cook some crabs and lobster to eat beside your old beach shack restaurant sign, or turn a spritzer fan on and enjoy some saltwater taffy while sitting in front of your own view of the ocean.

Out by the pool is a great place to decorate as well. Place a surfboards by the fence, some sand by the pool, and some vintage surf art on the walls to create your own blue lagoon.

We often receive questions asking "what is a Duvet Cover" A duvet cover is like a big pillowcase for your comforter. Many people prefer duvet covers so they can put a nice fluffy comforter inside and they are also easier to wash and easier to store. They also make it easier to change your decor without having to purchase a new comforter.
