      Whilst we’re discussing ceilings, why not try this interesting design? Placing draping fabric on your child’s ceiling will add dimension to the room whilst adding softness and a cozy atmosphere. Ensure the fabric is light, but besides that you can try any pattern you like!

      3. Creating A Larger Space

        As far as themes go for children’s rooms, space is incredibly popular. Planet’s are surprisingly easy to make – you could simply use a lantern lampshade like this one – then all you need to is paint the walls shades of blue and add some stars!

          5. Mad About Soccer

            There are few sports more popular than soccer, and if your child is one of it’s billion supporters than chances are they’d love a soccer-themed bedroom.

            6. The Outdoorsy Type

              tamarahdesign.com

              As children, my brother and I had a small pop-up tent beside our bunk bed that we absolutely loved to play in. Kids are always building dens and tents to hide away and play in, so why not give them their own inside-outside world?

              7. Bed + Storage

Often, these are actually more fun and way more interesting than your usual children’s, beds so chances are they’ll be more than happy with this idea.

                8. Castles

                    You don’t have to spend hundreds or get the builders in, you could even make a smaller castle out of cardboard!

                        For over fifty years, LEGO has inspired children all around the world: so why not incorporate it into your kids’ rooms?

                        10. Ahoy There Captain!

                          Encouraging them to study can be tiresome, but your child is probably going to love sitting at a themed desk! Above is a fantastic idea and addition to a pirate themed room! Houzz has hundreds of ideas you can use to get your kids to their desks.

                          11. A Treehouse

                              There are few children who do not aspire to have a treehouse. Below is a time-lapse on one father’s inspired indoor treehouse for his kid:

                              12. Books! Books! Books!

                                homeinfurniture.com

                                Although this particular design is not fundamentally a bedroom, it is an incredible idea to aspire to! Perhaps you could place bookshelves under your child’s bunk bed so it looks as though they are sleeping in a Beauty And The Beast-esque library!

                                13. Swings

                                    If you have the space, why not put a swing somewhere in your kids room? Make sure it’s securely attached to the ceiling though!

                                    14. Superhero!

                                      beazleyhome.com

                                      With superhero movies being released almost constantly, kids love a comic book theme. Although the above idea centre’s on Marvel’s Spiderman, there’s no reason why you couldn’t build an entirely original decor on your child’s favourite hero.

                                      15. Into The Woods

                                      bafabf31d255dc912b2281f885c0d0c2
                                        houzz.com

                                        This room combines elements of fairytale, adventure and everything cozy in a wonderfully simple design that requires little more than a natural color pallet and a couple branches.

                                        16. Home Maker

                                          curiositiesbydickens.com

                                          If you ever had a doll house or a Wendy house as a child, then you will instantly recognize the appeal of this design!

                                          17. A Rock Climbing Wall

                                                Headboards may seem like minuscule and unimportant parts of a bedroom, especially to kids, but the right one can pull the whole room together!

                                                19. Secret Places

                                                    Thanksgiving: It’s About The Simple Things

                                                    Advertising
                                                    Thanksgiving: It’s About The Simple Things

                                                    Thanksgiving, a day of pure gluttony, football, and possible uncomfortable situations with family members that you may or may not like. Oh, yeah, and the whole “know and reflect on what it is to be thankful and grateful.”

                                                    During the holiday season many people forget what this time of year is bout and are too worried about getting the “early-bird” deals on Black Friday and making sure that they have the perfect gifts for their loved ones. I am sort of a “Grinch” when it comes to the holiday season, mostly because of that mentality by many of the poeple around me.

                                                    But instead of being grinch-like this holiday season, I decided to simplify things and get back to what this time of year is actually is about; being thankful for what I have and what I can give.

                                                    Advertising

                                                    Simplify

                                                    I’m not a “minimalist” in any real sense, but in the last few months the talks of Patrick Rhone and others have got me to rethink my stance. Can you really have too much stuff?

                                                    Absolutely.

                                                    And with all that stuff comes the burden and the weight of it on your back.

                                                    Advertising

                                                    If you feel that the things around you are out of control, maybe it’s time to simplify and be thankful and grateful for what you have and use. Here are a few things that you can do to simplify:

                                                    • You know those gadgets in the drawer that you said you were going to sell? Well, time to get the listing on eBay and sell them. Or, send them to a place like Gazelle. Even if they are old and won’t get money, you can at least recycle them.
                                                    • Get rid of things you don’t need. Like old books, clothes, tools, etc. Have something that’s been laying around forever with no use? Donate it to a charity or church. If you aren’t using it, someone else could be.
                                                    • Find your productivity tools and stick with them. Use tools and gadgets that serve multiple purposes so you can simplify your tool set.

                                                    Be Mindful

                                                    You don’t have to be a master Buddhist or meditator to be mindful (although, it can definitely help). Being mindful comes down to being cognizant of the present and not keeping yourself in the past or future. It’s about living in the moment and being aware of yourself and everything around you. It’s just being.

                                                    Without getting too “California” on you, it is super important to be mindful during the holiday rush. Rather than worrying about the things that you forgot at your house on the way to relatives or thinking about the next stop in your endless holiday travels, just breath and think about what you are currently doing.

                                                    Advertising

                                                    Spend the time with your family and friends and don’t crush the moment. Try not to concentrate so hard on getting the perfect photo of the “awesome moment” of the day and actually miss the awesome moment.

                                                    Being mindful over the holidays will help you be with your families, friends, and yourself allowing you to enjoy your time.

                                                    Reflect

                                                    As the year is coming to a close (yes, it really is that close!) it’s a great time to start reflecting on what you have accomplished and what you haven’t. Within the next few weeks we will have a more throrough reflection article here at Lifehack.org, but reflecting every now and then over your holiday break is a great way to see where you have been doing well in your life and where you need to improve.

                                                    Advertising

                                                    Reflection shouldn’t be used to “get down” on yourself. Reflection should be used to take an honset inventory of what you have accomplished, how you handeled situations, and what you can do better. If you journal everyday (a daily form of reflection) it may be a good time to start going over some of the things that you have written and start to put together a year’s end journal entry. I mean, how else will you write your autobiography?

                                                    But, seriously, reflecting on yourself makes you aware of your successes and faults and helps you plan and make goals for the coming year. It makes you a better person.

                                                    So, while you are stuffing your face with bird, stuffing, and mashed taters’, remember that the holidays are much more than the superficial things. Use this holiday to become a better person.
