If you are looking for some more cute accessories to go on you child's bed, I really recommend picking up a monkey pillow pet like the one on the left. They are cuddly toys that transform into flat pillows, and they are super popular with young and older children alike.

Monkey Themed Wall Decor

Sweet Dreams Monkey Wall Decal
Loads of colors can be made to look amazing on the walls of a monkey themed bedroom. You can be traditional and go for a jungle color scheme, with lots of greens and yellows, but girly pinks, soft yellows and even bold oranges and demure browns, creams and beiges will fit the decor. Experiment with what looks best!

You can get other jungle animal tiebacks at the same link if you'd like a bit of variety, and they are all high quality and look wonderful. Why not match them with some monkey decorated curtains?

Skip Hop Zoo Storage Bins, Monkey
If your child generate a lot of clutter and doesn't have enough space to store is all in, a good idea is to pick up some storage cubes to keep things neat and tidy. Skip Hop Zoo make a very smiley and fun monkey storage bin that kids are sure to love, featured on the right.

Top Ten Gothic Bedding Sets for Girls

Lush Decor Glitter Sky 7-Piece Comforter Set
If you are decorating a Gothic style bedroom, the first thing you will need is some bold and dark bedding to form the centerpiece of it all. This post is going to be looking at all of my personal favorite goth style bedding, so read on a hopefully discover one that is perfect for your bedroom.

Catherine Flocking Black and
Red Comforter Set
First of all, you need to think about the color scheme for your bedroom, and pick bedding to match. One of the best color combos in a goth bedroom is black and red, which makes the deep red and black ruffle style bedding above a very good place to start. Each set of this bedding comes with everything you need: the comforter, a bed skirt, two pillow shams, and three decorative pillows. You can also get it in jet black.

Black Burgundy Red Flock
Satin Comforter Set
I also recommend the Catherine Flocking bedding featured on the right: it combines a gothic color scheme with some beautiful and elegant Victorian style patterns. Each set comes with a comforter, two pillow shams, a bedskirt, and three decorative cushions. You can get matching curtains that go with it too.

Last of all for red bedding, a shimmering velvet look works very well in Gothic bedrooms, which is why I think the red bedding on the left is a good choice you might want to consider. This set comes with all the stuff the other two do!

Alchemy Gothic Name of the Rose Duvet Set
Most goths are probably aware of Alchemy Gothic, but a lot of them don't realize that they make bedding too! It's really artistic and beautiful bedding too: I've featured my three favorites above and below, but be sure to check out their entire range. Each bedding set comes with everything you see in the picture: a duvet cover and two matching pillow cases.

Alchemy Gothic Abandon No
Hope Duvet Cover Set














Cozy Beddings Victoria 7-Piece Floral Flocking Comforter Set, Queen, Purple/Black
Another color scheme that looks great in a goth style bedroom is a combination of demure purple and bold black. For example, take a look at the gorgeous purple and black bedding above, which combines a patchwork texture with Victorian flocking to create a truly wonderful look. Each set of this bedding comes with a comforter, two pillow shams, a bed skirt, a bolster, a neck roll and a decorative square pillow to match.

Nanshing Harmonee 7-Piece
Jacquard Comforter Set
If you are a more feminine goth and want something that is Gothic as well as elegant, I would recommend trying the floral patterned, silky textured purple bedding on the right. Each set includes a comforter, two pillow shams, a bedskirt, and three decorative pillows. Combine it with some silk look black sheets and you will have a gorgeous look. 

Emerson 4-Piece Pinch Pleat
Puckering Comforter Mini Set
If you are having difficulty choosing a color scheme, you can't go wrong with some plain black bedding. I particularly like the puckering style black bedding on the left. Each set comes with a comforter, a dust ruffle and two matching pillow cases.

Last but not least, a cool and bold pattern like skulls would make a fantastic centerpiece for a gothic bedroom. If that sounds like your style, check out the Street Revival Flower skull bedding below,which comes with the comforter, two matching pillow shams and a dust ruffle.

Street Revival Flower Skull 6-piece Bed in a Bag with Sheet Set
So there you have it, my top ten favorite bedding sets for a Gothic bedroom. I hope you liked them as much as I do and found one that is right for you.

Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas Themed Bedroom Decor Ideas

Nightmare Before Christmas Comforter & 2 Pillow cases
Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas remains one of the most iconic holiday movies of all time, enjoyed by girls and boys of all ages, and this makes it the perfect theme for a bedroom! This post is going to be looking at all of my favorite Nightmare Before Christmas themed bedroom accessories, so read on and discover some truly spooky ideas.

Nightmare Before Christmas Themed Bedding

The Nightmare Before Christmas
Sheet Set
First things first, every bedroom big or small needs a scary bed to be the centerpiece of the theme. There isn't much Nightmare Before Christmas themed bedding out there, but I've managed to find a few good ones: the comforter set featured at the top of this page is a great example, and it comes with the comforter and two matching pillows. Secondly we have the kooky Jack Skellington and Zero themed sheet set on the right, which comes with a flat sheet, a fitted sheet, and two standard sized pillow cases.

If you are shopping on a budget and want an alternative, a good idea is to pair your existing black or grey sheets with a Nightmare Before Christmas themed blanket, such as this cute Jack and Sally fleece throw, or this Jack Skellington on a Moon background blanket.

Nightmare Before Christmas Themed Wall Decor

Nightmare Before Christmas Jack and Sally Vinyl Wall Decal Decor
With the bed made, its time to decorate the walls. A number of colors will work in a Nightmare Before Christmas: anything gothy or spooky such as greys, purples, dark greens and even a bold orange will look wonderful. I wouldn't go for black, however, as it will make the room look very dark and small. Go for a medium shade of grey instead!

Pumpkin - Nightmare Before Christmas
Scary Glow In The Dark Art Print Poster
Once the wall are painted, don't leave them bare! There are many ways you can add life to the blank space between your furniture, and a great place to start is with a cool wall decal, like the Sally and Jack spiral hill decal featured above! They are easy to apply and remove, and they don't leave marks on your walls when you take them off. Pretty convenient!

Alternatively, you could buy a few Nightmare Before Christmas themed movie posters to decorate your walls. I particularly like the one on the left, which even glows in the dark!

Nightmare Before Christmas Themed Bedroom Accessories

Last but not least, add the finishing touches to your new bedroom with some fun Nightmare Before Christmas bedroom accessories, such as a big pile of plushies to hug all day long! I recommend checking out the plush set above, which comes with five adorable character plushies.

Disney Traditions by Jim Shore
The Nightmare Before Christmas
Jack Skellington Figurine
Another great idea is to pick up some Nightmare Before Christmas themed figurines and ornaments to decorate your shelves, cabinets and windowsill with. My favorite is the high-quality, stunning Jim Shore Pumpkin King figurine featured on the right. You can also get a simply adorable figurine featuring Sally here. Shop around and pick up all of your favorite characters in ornament form!

So there you have it, my guide to decorating a Nightmare Before Christmas themed bedroom. I hope you found some great ideas and have a tonne of fun decorating your new room.
