Kid Room Theme Flower Power is About Color
Yes there were lots of flowers in the 60's & 70's era, but color is where it was at man. The pastel pinks, yellows and greens aren't going to cut it if you really want to get into it.
Think bright and neon like lime green, shocking pink, electric blue, royal purple, and orange. Another way to look at it is think sherbet colors. There are some gorgeous plaid quilts on the market right now that have a mix of all the above colors and they are hot!
Like this set below. The plaid can be used for other themes besides flower power. But with the color combination, you can add all kinds of kid room theme flower power accessories like black light posters, beaded curtains on the windows and the doors, brightly colored shag or flokati rugs on the floor and on the bed.
If you are still having a bit of trouble getting into the kid room theme flower power, rent Austin Power's movies. Groovey baby!
Salute to the united stripes of plaid, solid and gingham on this 100% cotton Quilt. The eye-catching panels in pink, green and yellow are accented by pick-stitch detailing. Reverses to pink and white stripe. Matching Accent Pillow and pole-top Valance are appliquéd with gingham flowers.
- Buy some inexpensive throw pillows and glue flowers all over one or both sides.
- There are Wallies that have retro themes that would work well on the walls for a kid room theme flower power. You can use them on the furniture too.
- Find some of those string lights that are flowers, and hang them around the room, around the bed or around the window.
- If you have a collection of old cd's that you don't want (or you can go buy cheap blank ones), drill small holes on top edge and bottom edge to allow you to string with fising line, and glue flowers on the front and the back to cover the holes, and hang from the ceiling or the window. These are great light reflectors, and look really cool if you have some colored lights that shine on them, like mini-string lights.
On the Windows
For a room with a view:
- Put shades or blinds on the windows for privacy, so you can use the acrylic beaded curtains on the window.
- If you're handy with wood, build a simple box cornice, paint or cover with fabric, and glue bunches of silk daiseys in a variety of colors all over it.
- Buy some inexpensive plain curtain panels, and glue small flowers randomly on them, and do the same with their matching tie backs.
- Make your own tie backs from colored bandanas and glue some flowers on them.
- Use fishing line and a needle and thread to make several daisy chains to hang from a curtain rod, knotting the fishing line at each flower, spacing them about 6 inches apart. (These work well to hang from the ceiling too)
