Hawaiian Decor For A Fun And Relaxing Bedroom
Looking for an interesting theme for your bedroom? Why not delve into the exotic world of tropical themes, and use Hawaiian decor to create your own personal paradise.
If you are a more conservative decorator, or have never decorated in a theme before, a Hawaiian or island theme may seem a little excessive for your bedroom. You can make your bedroom as basic or extravagant as you like because there are many elements in Hawaiian decor.
The following are some ideas for you to think about when putting together such a theme for your bedroom.
Walls. There are many ways you can color your walls. If you want to keep it easy and simple, then a clean neutral tone of brown such as sand or light taupe or a cool white are great paint choices. Look at painting the wall a bright but soft green, blue, or yellow for a more dramatic wall. Enhance the look even more by adding copper wall sculpture. On the other hand, if you are feeling artistic, you can paint a beach wall mural, or purchase a ready made mural, such as a Hawaiian sunset, and paste it to the wall. In addition, don’t forget, there are always palm tree, palm leaf, and floral wallpaper if you like prints.
Floors. Deep red-brown, chestnut, or sand colored wood floors are the perfect compliment for any Hawaiian decor. If hard wood floors are out of your budget, consider laminate. Conversely, if carpet is preferred, a nice light or dark shade of brown, ocean blue, sea green or light green are all ideal choices.
Moldings and Doors. These elements of the room should be colored in a dark and rich brown such as oak or cherry to blend nicely with the rest of the room.
Window treatments. The best window treatments for Hawaiian decor are wooden shutters, or bamboo blinds. You can leave these window treatments as is, or you can provide them with a little more oomph by adding a delicate white sheer curtain.
Lighting. A wood ceiling fan, especially one with blades in the shape of palm leaves, is ideal for the Hawaiian theme. If a ceiling fan is out of the question, opt for any other basic ceiling light, as your goal is to not make the ceiling light a focal point of the room. Hula dancer lamps, palm tree lamps, or pineapple lamps are also fun decor pieces for bedside tables or end tables.
Bedding. In regards to bedding, you essentially have two options. Either choose a solid color for your quilt or comforter, or choose a print. If you choose a solid color, you can add printed throw pillows to dress up your bed. If you do choose a print such as orchids or palm leaves be sure to choose throw pillows in solid colors. It is imperative that the room doesn’t carry too many prints or it will look to busy and intimidating.
Furniture. Wooden furniture is definitely a good choice. If you cannot obtain solid wood furniture, opt for bamboo, or dark faux wood furniture. So don’t overload your space with furniture; the goal here is to produce a space that is open. Be sure that you include all necessary furniture items first (I.E. bed, dresser, chest of drawers and bedside table). Bring in some shelves, end tables, and other furniture if you still have the room for them.
Accessories – Other Hawaiian decor you may wish to add to the room include:
• Palm plant (real or artificial).
• Vase of artificial orchids.
• metal artwork or contemporary art metal of palm trees, orchids or palm leaves.
• Authentic Hawaiian art.
• Pictures of palm trees, orchids, a beach, Hawaiian architecture, hula girl, or actual framed photographs taken in Hawaii, etc. Note: wooden frames are best for pictures or wall art.
• Area rug with flower or palm leaf.
• Plain or decorative bamboo or wooden screen.
• Throw pillows with floral or palm leaf pattern.
• Bamboo chair.
There are many items to choose from when it comes to employing a Hawaiian motif in the bedroom. Your decisions will be based on your budget and your own personal taste. It is perpetually a good idea to shop around before making any final decisions. Lastly, trust your own judgment and don’t be afraid when putting together your bedroom. Take your time, and have fun!
