So what do you do when you're decorating a man's room? How do you keep yourself from looking at his space needs through the glasses of Eve? Does he even provide you with enough information to go on? As we women know, men are such chatterboxes, it's hard to keep them quiet! NOT! (okay, I know, I know, but I was just trying to make a point)
Decorating a man's bedroom is not as simple as you would think. You really have to study him in his environment to see the best way you can provide comfort, and function, which in fact, is all that he really wants. Check out these ideas I gathered through the web, and read about which I used to redo my son's bedroom.
Beds with Canopy and Canopy Bed Ideas - What is it about a canopy bed that makes every little girl want them, and every grown woman love them? I remember as a little girl, how I wanted a canopy bed so badly yet my parents could not afford to give me one. Heck, a well-decorated bedroom was just not in the budget for that matter; and with the lack of readily available information way back then, the best my mom could do was paint our room a pastel pink (my sister and I shared a bedroom), get a couple of pink Strawberry Shortcake (remember those?)

Are your living areas stuck on beige? Is your room made up of beige furniture, beige walls, beige flooring, beige accents, and beige everything else? Would you like to apply some decorator colors, but just simply don't know how? If your room looks something like the one on the picture to your left, don't despair. Inspiration is on it's way!
Sometimes, in the scheme of decorating our living areas, people tend to go overboard on beige. Beige is a good "neutral" color to use; however, it should not be considered the anchor color to any design. Now, before you leave my blog, planing to never pay me a

If your teenager is ready to turn in her stuffed toys for something more grown up, why not offer her a room makeover?
Teenage girls today seem to have more sophisticated tastes than I did when I was their age. Today, they have several media outlets that provide them with all sorts of information. Anywhere from the latest boy-band to room tours, today's teenage girl can have a better view of the world through the internet.
In this blog, I made the decision not to bring you the obvious pink and black decorated rooms that emerged several years ago. Instead, I bring you colorful and beautiful designs, from around the web, by some of the best interior decorators out there. Without further a due, I present you with Teenage Room Ideas.

You survived the long winter, the spring cleaning, and the garage sales. Now that you pretty much have your home in order, and the kids are just about done with the school year, it's time to cover up the furniture, do a little bit of shopping, pack your summer wardrobe, and head off to your summer house over looking the lake.
This is a nice sentiment, if you can afford it. However, I'm here to tell you that you don't need that house overlooking the ocean, to feel like you are vacationing at a summer cottage. So sit back and relax, and allow me to help you discover your own summer house within your home.

In this blog I take you on a journey of exquisitely designed rooms. Rooms that were inspired by an era long gone. An era we like to call Hollywood Style. I'm not referring to Hollywood as we know it today. To a designer, when you mention this style of decor, you provoke thoughts of glitz, glamor, and unsurpassed elegance.
Unlike present day Hollywood, old Hollywood brought us ladies and gentlemen we thought of as larger than life icons, worthy to be called stars. Although many of them are no longer around, they have left behind a decorating style that is worthy to be emulated. We fondly like to call it, Hollywood Style.
