Creative Ways To Personalize Your Child's Room

A personal touch makes rooms more welcoming. Being able to add a name, monogram, or just having the freedom to customize colors and patterns helps you create a kid’s room that’s special. At Rosenberry Rooms, you can personalize art, lighting, kids’ bedding, crib bedding, rugs, even furniture to reflect the unique personality of your child.

Take the Sam Crib – it converts to a toddler bed and features three different finishes. What’s really cool about it is the optional Multi-Panel System that gives you a set of coordinated panels to instantly change up the look. Panels attach magnetically, can be monogrammed, and are a fun way to give a modern nursery different faces.

The Walker Bench is a vintage piece. It offers seating, storage, and comes in ten solid or distressed finishes. With the addition of a monogram and a few snazzy cushions, your child will enjoy a treasure that never loses its antique appeal. It has more personality than a classic toy box and still keeps clutter in its place.

It’s easy to get a custom look in a feminine bedroom with the Doodlefish Ballerina Bedding Set. A dazzle of perfectly synced patterns and colors make sweet music in stripes, solids, and polka dots. Scores of compatible optional window treatments are waiting to fashion a girl’s room that’s yummy as bubble gum and just as sweet.

Want to go all out for your baby boy but still keep things simple? Royal Blue Crib Linens by Olena Boyko come with skirt, sheet, blanket, and bumper plus optional diaper stacker and boudoir pillows. Every item can be monogrammed with one of 15 jazzy fonts.

Spice up your child’s room with personalized rugs. The clever Border Rectangle with Animal Print Monogram comes with so many ways to customize it that no two are probably alike. You get to pick the size, color, border color, font style, and finish everything off with a monogram or initial in leopard or zebra.

Keep your child’s room cozy by night with personalized nightlights like the adorable Lil’ T from Oopsy Daisy. For something more exotic, the Pink and Green Tassel Nightlight can be finished with an initial, monogram, or name.

Perhaps the fastest way to customize a child’s room is with vinyl wall decals that look hand-painted. Each set comes in a variety of sizes and scores of decorator colors. Check out the Adventure Plane or the Delightful Elements. Decals make beautiful wall art and won’t harm paint.

These are just a few of the ways you can get personal at Rosenberry Rooms. Customized chairs, step stools, ottomans, storage bins, and plenty of other pieces are all waiting to make your child’s room decidedly one of a kind.

Let Art Be Your Inspiration

A post on Erin Gates’ design blog makes an interesting point. It’s just as easy to design a room around a piece of art as it is to shop for art to match the room.

I decided to put this idea to work on the Rosenberry Rooms website. I began by shopping for an artwork I loved which would then become the inspiration for my room. I was immediately rewarded by a pair of stunning wall murals in which this concept was already (and quite beautifully) illustrated. The Kingdom Wall Mural is the focal point of a perfectly balanced boy’s nursery. A chocolate crib, sky blue crib bedding, and white-with-chocolate bed crown draped in sky blue fabric all frame the mural in princely splendor. This room makes quite a splash! A girl’s nursery, designed around the Toile Nursery Mural, is just as amazing. The palest peachy pink crib bedding partners elegantly with rich espresso crib, armoire, and dresser. A nursery glider, peach accented rug, beige lighting, and boudoir pillow complete an interior that’s truly world class.

Now, the litmus test of this experiment was whether I could find an individual piece of artwork that I loved and design a nursery around it myself! For a girl’s nursery, I chose the Frog and Fairy Vintage Artwork because it’s other-worldly and I like the aura of enchantment. The rich shades of green, gold, rose, and brown are lovely. Would Rosenberry Rooms have what I needed to make it work? I found the Opulence Iron Crib in gold and the ruffly Nicole Crib Bedding in pale peach to be just right. The Bernadini Moss Rug would set off the greens in the canvas, while the Iron Changing Table in gold would compliment the bed. The Gabby Pendant in Chartreuse would provide overhead lighting, while a pair of Gold Leaf Wrought Iron Sconces would give the room a magical glow.

What about a boy’s nursery? I like the Toile Boy Gone Fishing Canvas because it’s gentle, boyish, and the ivory and sky blue colors are serene. The Stationary Sleigh Crib in Natural, along with the Joshua Armoire, also in Natural, compliment the canvas perfectly. The Toile in Blue Crib Linens look like they were designed to match the canvas.The Monterey Dresser would serve as a changing table and, in Distressed White, adds a sprinkle of mix and match to the design. I chose the Vintage Floor Lamp in blue for accent lighting, together with the Jack Shaded Chandelier. It normally sells for $542, but it’s currently on sale for $406.50! The Serengeti Ice Zebra Rug is just perfect for the floor.

Starting with an artwork you love and using it to anchor everything else is a very clever idea. Too often we find ourselves searching for wall art or decor to match a predetermined room. The results can be less than spectacular. But the best thing about “working backwards” is that it helped me to focus on the bigger picture. Rosenberry Rooms’ second-to-none selection helps. This process would be much more difficult if I had to go from one website to another. Happy decorating!

A Closer Look at Personalized Growth Charts

When I was born, my Dad likes to say, I was small enough that he could hold me on his arm between his hand and elbow. Well, a number of years (we won’t say how many) have gone by, and that is no longer the case. Nowadays, he can hug me, but he certainly can’t pick me up – and definitely not on one arm! When you think about the way your children grow up over the years, having a record of the interim times – particularly the younger years – can help provide a much-loved and treasured visual demonstration of just how far your little one has come. Finding a personalized growth chart that you can use to track the inches as your child grows not only gives you a quantifiable account of their growth, but it lets your children feel accomplished and special as they grow up!

Here at Rosenberry Rooms, there are over a hundred options for personalized growth charts for your home and child. You can opt for animal-theme looks like the Sweet Bunny Growth Chart, the Pink Monkeying Around Growth Chart and the Gillespie Giraffe Growth Charts in both Pink and blue. Little boys will find the Vintage Sports Growth Chart to be a great way of connecting with their interests in sports and sports teams, while those who are interested in transportation will find the Trains, Planes and Trucks Growth Chart to be more inspirational. For girls, the Afternoon Gossip in Pink and Green Growth Chart makes use of bright colors to paint an image of your daughter’s growth over her childhood years.

Beyond those very creative pieces of art, there are some other options that stand out to me because they are definitely unique. One example is the Surf Board Growth Chart by ecotots which is Earth-friendly and can double as a coat rack when rotated! Another example is the Tree Growth Chart Fabric Wall Decal by Petit Collage. The benefits of this one? It is removable and reusable so it can travel from room to room or house to house if needed, while offering a truly whimsical and fun piece of visual art on the wall!

Aside from letting you keep track of how long it takes your child to achieve a certain height, what are the other reasons it’s nice to keep a growth chart for each of your children? The best part, as I see it, is that with a personalized growth chart you’re able to take your measurements with you wherever you go. When I was young, my mom had my brother, sister and I stand in front of a door frame to chart our growth; this was all well and good until we moved to a new house, when I was about twelve. My sister was still young enough that her growth chart could start over again in the new place, but for my brother and I, those dramatic leaps in height that make up so much of a child’s early years were forever lost.

Don’t let the same thing happen to your child – pick out a personalized growth chart that will be a stylish and special reminder treasured for many years!

Trends In Kids’ Decor For 2010

There’s a good chance your kids are already asking for some of the must-have items highlighted in Trend Bible’s recent article, “Overview of Kids Lifestyle Trends for 2010“. Children’s gear this year is all about four interrelated themes: vintage florals, outdoor adventures, spooky and fantastic surrealism, and futuristic play. Rosenberry Rooms has it all covered. Here’s a sampler of what’s red hot right now in kids’ decor…

Vintage Tea Party

floral memo boardTrend Bible tells us that vintage is in this season – everything from fabrics to furniture. Garden tea parties, floral motifs, picnic themes, all in muted pastels, turn up everywhere. The Floral Memo Board captures the spirit effortlessly with antique frame, floral fabric background, rickrack detailing, and tiny cameo accents.

The Teapot Table Lamp would make an adorable accent piece in a nursery or toddler’s room, while the pretty Tea Set in floral pastels and polka dots lets your little girl host real (or imaginary!) soirees in gracious style. To inspire her, The Fairy Tea Party Vintage Artwork displays a fairy’s garden tea party drenched in mythical charm.

Adventure PlaygroCXL Ranger Camo Fanund

Bring on the camo gear! Along with woodsy animals, recycled and organic materials, and jungle creatures, the great outdoors has become a very popular trend. The Toile Girl Pulling Wagon Canvas features almost exactly the same lime and creme palette featured in the Trend Bible article.

Start baby’s life on an adventurous course with the Big Dreamzzz Baby Camo Layette Set. You’ll also find baby gear from diaper bags to car seat covers in camo prints. If you’re looking for a trendy and functional ceiling fan, the CXL Ranger Camouflage Fan will furnish a refreshing breeze in any young sportsman’s personal space.

Wonderland

Mirrored and metallic surfaces, spooky themes, unicorns, owls and fantastic accents make up Trend Bible’s third style element.

The unusual Elephant Acrylic Mirror will compliment any contemporary nursery while making a statement all it’s own. Fashionable moms can look as fetching as newborns when sporting the chic and shiny Dante Beatrix Silver Peace Tote. The haunting and mystical Own Making Canvas is as lovely as it is true, while the Whoo Whoo Whoo Canvas stars an eerie sorcerer owl.

Superhero Lunchbox

Future Play
Graphic designs are a strong trend in 2010, especially in the Future Play theme. Elements are rich in 60′s pop art, synthetic materials, cartoon characters, and superheroes. Present any little boy with the Superhero Personalized Lunchbox and he’ll feel like a superstar in his own right.

Surprise your young explorer with the stylized Retro Rocket Canvas and his imagination will take off into other dimensions. Go all out with the Star Trek Enterprise Wall Mural and transform your little boy’s room into his own personal spaceship.

All the hottest trends find expression at Rosenberry Rooms in everything from garden-fresh girls’ bedding sets to luxurious organic baby clothes. Choose a few strategic pieces to tweak your child’s existing decor or catch Trend Bible fever and dress up an entire kids room in all the latest looks. A mind-boggling inventory makes it child’s play to stay on top of your decorating game. The only question is: “What won’t you find?!”

Basic Must-Have Décor Pieces

Juggling all of the variables that go together when designing the look of a room can challenge even the most enthusiastic shcarolineopper, particularly because there are so many items needed to pull together a memorable personal space. By looking after the individual elements in a room’s design, and discerning the function of each piece, it becomes possible to break this effort down into achievable steps. What do you think of when you think about decorating a room? Does your attention drift naturally to furniture, art, rugs, lighting, bedding, or accessories? All these elements need to be aligned with one another in order to complete a room’s design. But how do they all fit together?

Any room begins as a blank slate, and furniture is one of the best indicators for the purpose of the room – as well as the objects that make a room a pleasure to use. Think about it: the furniture you’d purchase for a bedroom is different from what you’d need for a rec room or family room, because each room is used for a different purpose. By choosing memorable and delightful furniture pieces, you can make each room and its purpose well-defined – and designed!

mini damask rugRugs serve two purposes in a room, fulfilling obligations of function (softening the floor and helping to insulate the room) and form (being objects of beauty that help set the emotional tone of a space). In children’s rooms, light patterns with playful imagery like in the Blue Night Sky Rug can put your child at ease both when they’re on their own, and at bedtimes. Both solid colored rugs and rugs with patterns can add an air of calm to a bathroom or playroom. Artwork, which can be created from posters, photographs, prints, and even wall hangings can be used to help liven up broad expanses of empty wall, and also provide opportunities for you to show guests your kids’ interests and tastes.mocha wall sconce

Specific types of rooms have specific requirements, as indicated in the discussion of furniture, above. For bedrooms, bedding is an essential element of the furnishings which can have a direct effect on how the room feels and even how it is used. When designing a room for your children, deciding whether to use a single bed or a bunk/guest bed can make a big difference on the styles and patterns you choose.

In any kind of room, the finishing touches are lighting pieces and accessories. These can include floor lamps, wall sconces, as well as other types of lighting. Each light fixture can change the appearance of a room through the use of shadows and colors, so picking a lighting fixture that matches your intentions can help change your room’s look dramatically. Accessories, meanwhile, can provide useful functions while adding to the rooms decor. From the trash can you use to keep things tidy to the eye-catching mirror, each plays a specific roll in the overall feel of the finished room.

By looking at these elements individually when first putting together a room from scratch, creating a well-designed room becomes an easy task to complete!

Easy Ways to Make Him Love His Room

Sometimes a frustrated parent will send their son off to his rooms for a time out. But what if his room is his favorite place in the house? Well, maybe that’s all the better. Create a place he really enjoys, and it will become a center of relaxation, creative play or reading, and a place to dream the big dreams of childhood.

Transportation BeddingStart by picking a theme, and since boys seem especially partial to vehicles and to sports, let’s explore these themes as a starting point. If you go with planes, trains, and automobiles, start with the centerpiece of the room, the bedding set. Most manufacturers offer numerous accessories for most sets, making it really easy to pull a room’s motif together. One nifty set your little man will love is the Duvet Bedding Set featuring Transportation. Masculine, rich colors and a striking block-style pattern produce plenty of interest, and deliver warmth and comfort, too. To accent the room, the maLicense Plate Woodytching Signs Multi Rugs in Small or Large are very cool, and if a bathroom is nearby that he mainly uses, the Transportation Shower Curtain will be a certain hit. For lighting, the World Map Overhead Light Fixture will have him dreaming of all the places those modes of transport will take him, or perhaps he’d rather span the skies with the Biplane Fighter Pendant in Satin Nickel. For the wall, an eclectic mix of transportation-related canvas art is available, but you might start with the Train Station Canvas Reproduction, or the License Plate Woody with Surfboard Oopsy Daisy Canvas Reproduction which can be personalized with his name.

Classic SportsIf you go the sports route, craft a locker room setting for your son with a vast array of choices. For bedding, go old school with the Classic Sports Twin Quilt with Pillow Sham, and carry it through with some sporty art. On the wall, a series of vintage sports canvases will set the tone for the pursuit of excellence and a commitment to giving anything he tries his best effort, on or off the field. Choose, perhaps, the Golf Classic Canvas Reproduction or the Basketball Game Ticket Canvas Reproduction. You might consider completing the look with some old sports equipment, picked up while hitting neighborhood garage sales – a worn catcher’s mitt, a set of real wooden golf clubs, a wood bat, or perhaps a classic jersey or two.

Rosenberry Rooms has a fine selection of all the elements needed to turn an ordinary bedroom into something extraordinary. We’ve just scratched the surface, so be sure to enjoy some relaxed time perusing all of our carefully chosen products. We are confident you’ll find just the right touches to create a unique, inviting room your son will truly love.

Damask

Rugs are versatile accent items that can add a touch of warmth, a splash of color, or the perfect design complement to any room.

There is such a wide selection of quality rugs available that finding the right one can be difficult only because of the many choices!

Shag rugs offer warmth and thick, cozy comfort every time your youngster stands on one.

Signs Multi

When searching for attractive, comfortable, functional kid’s rugs, many parents find the selection at Rosenberry Rooms to offer fantastic variety and quality. In addition to the styles and types of rugs that have been mentioned, they also offer striped rugs that add zest wherever they’re placed, interactive rugs featuring numbers and letters to inspire learning, shaped rugs like the zebra or lion prints, a collection of play mat rugs, and looks that range from the traditional to the contemporary.

Three Fun Themes for Your Child's Room

Sail Away Drawer KnobsWe all feel better knowing that there is a special place for us where we belong. Adding a theme to your child’s room can help them identify a special place of their own. Fun themes are important because they make the difference between the place where your kid sleeps and the room that your child lives in. They can tie together a room’s different elements and give the space a unique feel that matches your child’s personality. There are a lot of popular kids room themes that you can use to decorate your child’s room, but it’s easiest to start simple and build from there. These examples may give you some ideas:

BEACH
With ocean blues and sandy browns, beach themes work well for boys’ rooms. Even little touches like the sail away drawer knobs can liven up a boy’s room without putting a dent in your budget. The fun part about the beach theme is that you can either go serious with lighthouses and whaling ships from New England, which goes well with accents like the Charting a Course Mural Banner, or you can get imaginative with a Caribbean flair, picking out decorations like a Treasure Map Rug.

Pink Flower Pot Clock

FLOWERING MEADOW
Whether it’s a quaint English garden or a mountain meadow full of wildflowers, floral items and garden-inspired designs can add a breezy playfulness and sense of whimsy to a little girl’s room. A wide variety of accents and furniture can add a colorful dynamic, from cute Pink Flower Pot Wall Clocks to Strawberry Pink Flower Rugs. The floral theme also lends itself to other popular themes like fairy princesses and ballerinas, a great starting point for games of make-believe.

JUNGLE
Jungle Safari QuiltThe great thing about jungle-themed rooms is that they can work for either boys or girls. Start with a green base, which makes a good, gender-neutral color and then add either pink or blue accents. From there, you can add touches like an Animal Print Rug or some Giraffe Drawer Pulls. The jungle theme also lets you work in favorite animals like giraffes, tigers, or zebras, for the excitement and adventure of a jungle safari. You can even take the safari theme one step further with a Jungle Safari Quilt. It’s a fun way to travel to new continents and see new creatures while still being able to get home in time for dinner.

These themes don’t need much to be customized for your child’s interests or favorite cartoon characters. Is your son a huge fan of SpongeBob SquarePants? He’d be right at home in a beach-themed room. Does your daughter love Dora the Explorer? Then she’ll enjoy having adventures in the jungle. Each of these themes is a good base that you can build on to express your child’s unique personality.

These are just a few starting points. If your child wants to be an astronaut, you can start with an outer space theme, or you can work on a city theme for the child who craves bright lights and excitement. The important thing is to have fun making a space where your child can feel at home. Be sure to check out all of the options that Rosenberry Rooms offers you for themed decor for your little girl or boy!
