One of the hardest decisions and a distinctive starting point is choosing the type of theme to opt for. With choices such as football, animals , outer space, fairytale, planes and flowers the possibilities are endless. Naturally any theme will involve matching furniture like bed, tables and storage, as well as selecting key lighting pieces with the appropriate theme and purpose.
As a parent, and head decision maker, it is important to find out what colours and things your children are into. Remember that children are susceptible to fads, and in 2 months they may not enjoy a bedroom completely kitted out in the style of the Action heroes or Princesses!
You might also consider the gender role. A girl is more likely to favour a fairy or princess theme, while a boy is likely to be attracted to furniture and bedroom lighting that reflect a boat or racing car theme. Though there are no hard and fast rules and often girls like the things that boys like as well !
Alternatively it is possible to adapt them for both, especially if you have two sharing the same room. For example an animal, bird or insect theme will easily fit both.

Myself I would choose some of the natural history cushions to accent my sofa and my new carpet which is being layed Monday the carpet will be of a Mocha colour so I would choose some of the natural history cushions to accent everything. I would also choose some lighting , I must admit I am rather partial to the Liberty lamp. So now I am on my way to revamping my front room I shall have to sweetly talk to my husband about the other rooms in my, I mean our house that need doing. that's of course after he, I mean I have painted them !
