Backyard Wonderland: Creating a Kids Play Space In Your Backyard

Having children made me look at my home's backyard from a whole new perspective. As my little ones started walking, I began to see how I could turn my backyard into a playground that was safe and secure for them to play. After spending a lot of time researching the safety and stability of the play structures and materials that were out there, I built a play area that's secure and fun for my kids. I created this site to share all of the ideas that I had as well as some other things I've found over the years to help other parents create the perfect play space to bring the family together at home.

Are You Redecorating Your Master Bedroom In An Elegant Way?

Have you been waiting for the right time to redecorate your master bedroom? If that time has finally arrived, you are more than likely excited about shopping for new things that will establish an elegant look. After all, isn't your bedroom a retreat from the rest of your busy house? With that in mind, from selecting white and gray marble print bedding to buying accessories to enhance the elegant look you want, here are some ideas that might help you.

White And Gray Marble Print Bedding - Can you think of two colors that speak elegance more than white and gray do? And, then using them together means double elegance, right? Of course, if you want great drama in your master bedroom, then white and gray print bedding might not be the best choice for you. In that case, you will probably want to buy bedding in jewel tone colors like bright turquoise, red and maybe even purple. 

For a subtle elegance, consider buying a white fitted sheet, a gray top sheet, two gray pillowcases and two white pillowcases. Make the bed in a way that the gray top sheet still allows the white fitted sheet to show. Then put either the gray pillows or the white pillows in front of the other two. It doesn't matter which you choose, as either will look nice against the white and gray sheets.

Now select a white and gray marble print comforter and place it, folded, at the bottom of the bed. By doing so, it will still show, but you can easily pull it up when you are going to rest or take a nap. 

The great thing is that these beautiful white and gray linens can be laundered right in your washer and dryer.

Accessories to Add Additional Elegance - Think of buying an adorable gray or white stuffed bear to set against the pillows. For a bit of added color, tie a ribbon of your favorite color around the stuffed bear's throat. For example, if you love lavender, tie a lavender colored ribbon around the bear's neck. 

Consider placing a sofa table at the foot of your bed. Use the table to display things like coffee table books and lamps to add soft lighting to your room.

If there's enough space, consider buying a chaise or two occasional chairs for your master bedroom. Choose either gray or white upholstery, or a combination of those two colors, maybe a stripe pattern or a floral design. Or, go with the color of upholstery that will match the ribbon you selected for the stuffed bear on your bed.
