Unique Shelves Change the Mood of a Room

Zig Zag Wall Shelf

An easy way to add interest to a bedroom, living room or family room is to add some unique shelving. Shelves come in so many interesting configurations including corner shelves, floating shelves and zig zag shelves and they can often tuck into a corner that you are not really using anyway.

With small shelves, you can add some colorful accessories such as a vase, candle or silk flowers in bright contrasting colors to draw the eye. Even though the shelves take up space, you may find that adding them makes the room look bigger instead of smaller. Shelves can be made of wood, metal or glass although if you rent it is better to use a lightweight material.

When buying shelving, consider the size of the space you have, the weight that will go on the shelf and the effect you are working towards. Style makes a difference too. If you like a more modern style, then look for contemporary shelves. You do have the option to take existing shelves and alter them with paint or stain for an antique look or more rustic look.

Shelves can also create a shadow box effect, for display of one item to be hung on the wall. Another option is a thick frame that is hung and used as a shadow box.

Not all shelves need to take up floor space, either. Ledges and corner shelves are often mounted on the wall and do not even go all the way to the floor. You can plot out the space of your room on a piece of graph paper, and pencil in the location that you wish to add the shelves. This will help you see how much space each item in your room uses and you can measure out paper to represent your existing furniture and move it around the diagram to find the best configuration.

Below are just a few examples of unique wall shelves. Click the link for a bigger picture and more details.

Decorate and Paint with Dragonfly Colors - Choosing

You are spoilt for choose in dragonfly colors - some look simple, blue or green or red, but if you look at a lot of them you will see how many dragonflies have multiple colors and incidentally, different textures, which you can introduce into decorating ideas.

The colors. Just like butterflies, dragonflies come in range of colors from soft pastels to bold and vibrant colors. You can find dragonflies in red and pink, fuchsia and orange, blue and saffron, gold and emerald, black browns and every shared shade you can think of. Added to that the metallic sheen of some and you have plenty of colors to choose from for you color scheme. Dragonfly wings can be translucent, simply transparent or they may be colored, spotted or banded. Generally the ones with clear wings tend to have vibrant colors on their body and tail. This pretty little thing gives us loads of ideas. It has pinks, purples, red, orange and blue and metallic grey or blue in the wings.

Dragonfly Perched on Edge of a StickDragonfly Perched on Edge of a Stick

Dragonflies have a delicate, ethereal look to them that lends well to a themed decor. Just echoing dragonfly tones against a pastel background creates a great effect. Pick out one of tbe contrasting jewelled metallic tones as a block color in curtains, throws or bedding to bring out the theme. Your carpeting can be somewhere in between your pastel walls and bold accents. You are gradually creating your room. And introduce different textures like satin and lace to represent alternately the body and wings.

For example, note how dragonfly here looks green but you will also note there is a red spot, subtle orange on the neck and the wings look dark. You could then paint the walls of your room a matching green and use red and orange accents - then introduce the texture of the wings with lace.

Many species change color as they mature, or may vary as the temperature changes. Females may be differently colored from males. All dragonflies emerge with barely any color, although hints of the adult pattern may be visible.

One of the most fascinating things about dragonflies and color is that they can appear to change color depending on the light. What may seem like transparent wings turn iridescent in sunlight.

Dragonfly themed decorative borders

For the walls

Once you decide to go for a dragonfly theme decor start off by picking base colors to build on. Look at pictures of dragonflies to pick out a color. It works best with a solid block color - a pastel shade that you would find in real dragonfly. For accent add a border featuring dragonflies either high up near the ceiling or at dado height.

Using Wallpaper to Change a Room to Retro

Sometimes you only need to change one thing in a room to change it completely into a new style. Wallpaper is one of those things. You can add wallpaper to one wall in a room to change the entire mood.

Lately, I have been writing about decorating in retro. One of the easiest ways to change your kitchen, bathroom or living room into a retro style room is by adding one of these retro designed wallpapers to one accent wall. These wallpapers are a hoot! For most rooms, it would only take one day to put the paper up, then you could see the results immediately.

The wallpaper featured above is a good example. York Wallcoverings KB8525 Bistro 750 Retro Leaves Prepasted Wallpaper comes in five different color combinations that can be used with almost any color scheme. It is a 50's style design which would go great in a kitchen, entry or bathroom. You don't have to want a retro look to use it, but it certainly can be used for that purpose.

Using Wallpaper to Change a Room to Retro

Another use for a retro wallpaper, or actually any patterned design is to create wall art from it. You can see this done here with this Wall In A Box WIB1012 Retro Dots Wallpaper, Silver Metallic, Scarlet Red, Gloss Black, Steel Gray. This is a very cool look that can be easily done by hand at home. Just place the wallpaper over a frame or on top of an existing artist canvas. Staple it to the back, and hang. In this picture, the paper has been put on four canvases and placed in a 2 x 2 pattern. The dot geometric design is juxtaposed with the squareness of the canvases.

This is a wonderful wall accent for a den, living room, dining room or bedroom. It can also be used in a hallway or entryway. This is a particularly good idea if you rent the space you are living in, so you don't need to replace the wallpaper. Just remove the nail you are hanging the frame with.
