Dragonfly Decorative Theme Ideas

Ideas for creating the right dragonfly look by decorating the walls

Ceramic wall tiles

Dragonflies

For bathrooms and kitchens add some ceramic tiles in relevant places, for example, as splash-backs. Use only 2 or 3 decorated ones mixed in with plain colored ones for maximum effect. As you can see from just this small sample, you have no color restrictions to worry you. Pick your favorite tile then use the colors in it for background color and in decor accents for a dramatic effect.

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.

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.

Christmas Wall Decal DecorationsIf you are looking for an easy and inexpensive way to decorate for Christmas, especially in a rented or temporary space like an apartment or dorm room, one of the easiest is using Christmas wall decals.

Wall decals have been overtaking the wall decorating market as a substitute for wall paper. They are much less permanent, easy to change out and cheap. You can apply them in minutes, and use them for kids rooms, kitchens, bathrooms and more. However, for Christmas wall decor, they are supreme. While similar to stickers, they don't leave behind sticky residue, and can be taken down almost as quickly as you can put them up. Also, they are very cheap compared to many other decorations.

Here are some great examples of Christmas wall decals that you can use, but click through for many more examples:
