What Houzz contributors are saying:
…or from the ceilingIn this quaint children’s room, a blue feathered dream catcher looks lovely hanging from the ceiling, along with a string of bright rosettes. Suspended by the bed, these traditional Native American ornaments are said to catch bad dreams. Why not make one with the kids – it’s a lovely project for a rainy day. All you need is a willow hoop, beads, string, feathers and your imagination.
Hang up home-made buntingThis child’s bedroom is crammed with colourful banners and pendants, but you don’t have to leave all the fun to kids’ rooms. Any colourful ephemera you’ve been hoarding can also be strung up as bunting, like these rosettes. Native American dream catchers have found a new audience recently and both faithful and modern versions make beautiful additions to bedrooms. Create your own dream catcher using colourful yarns or embroidery threads wrapped around a wooden embroidery hoop, or keep it natural and understated with undyed string and real feathers. It’ll look great in a bohemian-style scheme.
Encourage imaginationGive your child a blank canvas they can decorate with bright toys and accessories. Keeping everything white blurs the edges of this small bedroom and allows hard-won rosettes and rainbow storage boxes to pop against the plain background.
