Adding Hello Kitty-themed decor and accessories to the bedroom elevates the ‘cuteness quotient‘ of the space and also gives it a fun, whimsical vibe that is both unique and fashionable. You can even take this cheerful vibe into the teen bedroom and adult spaces without going overboard.

The idea that a home draped in tropical style feels like a delightful getaway and brings a hint of that exotic goodness indoors is the reason why so many homeowners are willing to give it a shot. Tropical style, though, is not singular and monolithic, and there are many different versions and strands of this broad style that vary greatly. It depends largely on your inspiration, the region of the world that you have drawn the different elements from, and of course, the uniqueness of your own home. And a good place to start experimenting with tropical style is the dining room!
Choosing the Right Decor If you want to give the modern dining room a more nature-centric look, then choosing the right decor is as important as the color scheme. A vintage hutch or credenza in the backdrop can give even the most contemporary of dining rooms a traditional touch. Old wooden cabinets that are repainted in white work well in shabby chic settings, while antique furniture can easily fit into dining rooms with a wide variety of themes, ranging from traditional to vintage-modern.
A reclaimed wood accent wall with a distressed finish is a cool way to give the dining space that shabby chic vibe without moving away from the modern color palette. The rest of the room can still remain contemporary with a small accessory or the dining table complementing the wooden accent wall with a similar finish. Simple and neutral finishes for the reclaimed wood wall also help in blending it easily with the rest of the open plan living area.
Consider including a favor at each place setting. Small white pumpkins make a lovely addition to the Thanksgiving table. Linen napkins also work well with a grey and neutral palette. For a fun seasonal idea, place a pumpkin on top of each napkin, as shown below. Wash off each pumpkin before adding it to the table (to ensure that the napkins remain clean).
Sure, we all have seen the image of Hello Kitty countless times (even if you are not particularly a big fan of the cartoon character), and there have been times when the music industry‘s hottest icons adopted it as a fashion statement, but few know the fact that Hello Kitty is NOT a cat. That‘s right; the makers of Hello Kitty insist that she is just a cartoon character - a little girl who is actually from London! Delve a bit deeper and you will learn that the first of November is her birthday, she is a third-grader and her favorite color is red
