Bedroom Design for Child Cheerleader

If your daughter is a cheerleader, the odds are high that she is obsessed with it. A lot of young girls dream about being cheerleaders when they grow up. When they actually get into junior high and high school, they are dedicated to this dream. They can even take it on to college if they work hard enough, so you would do well to promote your daughter's obsession in any way that you can. This may mean decorating her room to match her chosen pastime. Below are a few different ideas for things that you can do to really make her bedroom a special place.

Put Up Her Medals
Many cheerleaders are involved in competitions. They can get medals when they win over other teams of cheerleaders from other schools. If your daughter has been in some of these competitions and she has won them, you can make a shelf for her medals. A good idea is to make the top of the shelf flat and empty; you can use it to set up plaques and similar rewas. Below that, you can put some pegs where her medals can hang on their bands.

Paint The Room With School Colors
Your daughter probably has a lot of school spirit if she wants to dress up and cheer for them all of the time, so you can paint the room with the same colors. You can just use the main color - blue, for instance - for the walls. You can then use the secondary color - white or yellow, for example - for the trim. If you want a less intense look, you could just paint the walls white and then put strips of blue and yellow around the top. You could also paint the trim these colors.

Put Up Newspaper Clippings And Photographs
When your daughter has been in competitions or led the cheers at games, she has probably been photographed for the local newspaper. You should take these photographs and frame them. There are also team pictures and individual pictures taken at most schools. You can frame these as well. You may even want to get a large frame that can accommodate many pictures. You can then put them all in the same place so that she has a nice collage of her and her team.

Give Her Outfit A Special Place To Hang
Lastly, you may want to create a place where she can hang her cheerleading outfit. This could be as simple as putting a hanger on the wall. It could be more complex, though, if you want to transfer a small closet into a place where the uniform can be displayed. You could even do this in conjunction with the pictures so that she can have everything in one place. By setting her cheerleading outfit aside from all of her other clothes, you will be showing her that you support her in all that she does and that you also think that her pastime is important.

A Warm and Homely Interior

We often look for some interesting and extraordinary ideas for our home, but at last, for most of us, the main criterion is comfort and coziness. That`s why I suggest you this simple but so warm and homely interior:

[A warm-colored room with a fireplace and a

This cozy feeling is created by the fireplace, the furry "bearskin" carpet, as well as the pail of magazines and overall warmness of all the colors. Isn't it the place where you'd like to be on a long winter evening? Indeed it is.

Styrofoam Decorations

What do you think about those styrofoam decorations, like the frieze along the ceiling and the columns at the photo below? Some say they are tasteless, but they are an easy, practical an literally lightweight way to add something eye-catching to an otherwise boring room. Someday I will definitely put some columns into the interior of my home!

Guest Bathrooms

Megan Gates is an active blogger who provides written work to the blogosphere pertaining to NYC Rentals, The Hamptons, home improvement and the latest architecture, design and fashion. Follow her on twitter @MEGatesDesign.

As a homeowner, family member and friend, it is natural to have these special people in your life come visit and stay at your place. With that in mind, showcasing your house to its most beautiful potential is what any homeowner would want. Providing your guests with the comforts of their own home is impossible, but you can make it as close to home for them by providing a bit of luxury in a very important room of any house; the bathroom.

A guest bathroom should not be considered the half bath that is located close to the kitchen and family room. You want your guest bathroom to be a full bath that is in close proximity, preferably one or two rooms away from the guest bedroom.

Making your guest have to use a bathroom far from their bedroom may make them feel uncomfortable. Also making a guest use a half bathroom most of the time and then a different full bathroom just for showering may also make your guest feel uncomfortable and feel as if they have no place to comfortably set out their toiletries.

When you decorate your guest bathroom, keep the colors simple and relaxing. Guests are often already stressed about having to travel and use someone else's space. Minimize their tension by offering a space with aesthetics that are calming. Using white is often a clean and simple color that many hotels and spas use. Emulate their successful designing techniques in your own home. Use luxurious, fluffy towels and robes for comfort. Provide a stylish over the door rack for your guests to hang up their travel bags or to hang up their towels if they would like to reuse them. Add a touch of sophistication by adding some lightly scented candles or some fresh flowers to the vanity.

When it comes to the functionality of the bathroom, realize that guests will utilize the room differently than you would use your own bathroom. Make the necessities easy to find. Keep clean towels on the rack and folded underneath the sink or on a shelving unit if you have one. If the bathroom is small, keep an extra one folded on the back of the toilet. Keep extra toilet paper stocked and easy to reach from the toilet. No need to make a guest stress about where to find that necessity! Add extra luxury and comfort by having extra toiletries stocked as well. Travel size shampoos, toothpaste, body wash and lotions, razors and even toothbrushes handy all help your guest transition into your space without a hitch.

Use these ideas to fool your guests into thinking that they've stayed at a five star resort during their next visit! Share any other guest bathroom ideas you have here.

This is something I can call a dream bedroom, that's for sure!

Black-and-White Dinning Room

Who said that classic wooden furniture and black-and-white palette of interior must be obsolete and cheesy? Just look at this photo:

[A black-and-white room with cute striped curtains]

The first thing that grabbed my attention are the cute striped curtains which seem strict and pretty at the same time. And they go perfectly with the wooden furnirure and other interior items. So this room with a hint of retro style looks very stylish.

A Soft and Elegant White and Dark Living Room

Using white as an accent color makes this interior so soft, subtle and attractive.

[A contrasty white-and-black room with the prevalence of white]

I think everybody agree with me that white sofas always look perfectly. And you can never go wrong with the white-and-dark palette as well. The fresh flowers and cherry blossom complete the feeling of total tenderness of this room.

White accent color is very advantageous. I see it blending well with almost any type of interior. And it's also good that over time you can easily refresh the interior by changing or adding some of the decorations.
