Oh, the Excitement of 
New York In Your Bedroom: 
City Skyline Themed Bedding                                                               

NYC Manhattan from Top of Skyscrapers  3 Piece Bedding Set
New York City comforters and bedding sets like these evokes images of bright lights, and seemingly 24/7 night life.I love decor I can feel, smell and touch--not just see it in wall art. Great bedroom spaces capture the very essence of their themes and genre, so I aim to blend New York City's comforter sets and bedding, along with fabulous, high-energy city skyline wall art for that total package us city slickers love to love!
Are you feelin' the energy from this piece, here?
Scroll down for a look at New York City skyline bedding to get you moving toward Total FAB--without flagging a cab.

   Getting Started with Your New York City Themed Focal Point: Fabulous Bedding

Your themed bedding will most likely serve as the space's focal piece, as your bed's sheer size will play MVP in your bedroom, supporting and introducing your theme quicker than you can hail that big-city taxi. 

                                                                                                                                                                                         Begin with a New York City comforter or duvet where you'll get the degree of visual energy you want for your bedroom's vibe. Black and white skyline bedding like this one where you can add color with pillows and other accessories--or not--to lend the right amount of 'oh, wow!'  

 Light it Up: New York is Lights


You've really gotta have an abundance
of light, ideally at every level: overhead, floor
and table or reading level. Spaces with inadequate
 light will dampen the spirit of your bedroom,
 creating creepy corners and looming shadows
at every angle.  Nip those Debbie-downer dim
spots in the proverbial bud with inexpensive
 lighting like a tripod floor lamp.

Versatile City Skyline Themed Black  White Bedding: Define Your Location

I was happy to find this uber-budget-friendly city skyline comforter set! 

With the black & white old newspaper print style and hues, you can add the color wherever your bedroom calls for energy.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Energize an otherwise tired-looking corner with a vibrant red side chair or a New York, taxi cab yellow rug (I made that color up, but you can feel the energy, can't you?). Don't be afraid to add color with those new paints available these days. Did you know there's a fabric paint for your old upholstered chair? Don't throw that old chair out just yet!

A Black & Midnight Blue Bedding Set with a Splash of Yellow Taxi Cab: Who knew?

Pair this themed comforter set up with other black and white city-themed pieces or go with yellow or even aqua to accessorize. I love this bedding for its 'just right' palette; you've got the color but not too much it keeps you up at night.   

Adding Dimension:
New York City themed throw pillows

Pillows are great for that all-important layering process and add to your themed bedroom. I know this sounds a bit like frosting a cake but in a way, you can  relate both baking and decorating, adding as you go and building from a blank canvas of sorts. 
Comforters and duvets can be fabulous in themselves but alone, they can be mighty flat if left without plumping up  the 'volume' Throw in a few shapes, textures and hues to your otherwise flat bed set and VIOLA! 


Any City, Anywhere: Bedding Sets That Can Take Your Bedroom Space to Any Big City

While lots of city skyline bedding sport the New York City theme, some comforters and duvets--like this fab-tab-u-lous [I made that one up] city skyline set afford you all the freedom to create your very own city theme, be it New York, Paris, London --with you as mayor, of course.  I'm more inclined to go for black and white bedding sets, as I'm a big fan of color and like the idea I can change my palette on a whim, or go for a funky rug and not have to carry color swatches wherever I go. I do good to find my keys in my cesspool of a pocketbook.   

Do they make purse shovels with optional finding devices?

Some Faves Along the Way

I've included some of my favorite New York City Skyline Comforter Sets, Bedding and Decor 

Do NOT Fear the Duvet!

Red White & Blue American Flag NYC Duvet Bedding Set: Twin Size
Many of us in the States aren't duvet friendly--at all. This New York Bedding Set is indeed, a duvet and it's quite a fabulous  buy--even if you buy the duvet insert--and especially if you wash your old comforter and stuff it inside the duvet/cover. Duvet covers afford you a better night's sleep, as you can use a lightweight filler in hotter months and a thicker filler in colder months. I know I freeze in the wintertime. You'd be surprised how the least temperature change can alter your quality of sleep, making for a miserable night with the wrong bedding. I'll include a budget-friendly duvet 

Twin Size Duvet Bedding Set Includes: Reversible, Under $32 New York City Skyline duvet on one one side; the reverse features an American Flag (red, white and blue) with one American Flag pillow case.

Under $35 Reverse New York City Skyline Bed Set

Duvet Insert for Your New York City Duvet Bedding Sets

From Under $25, a duvet insert may be the answer to getting a better night's sleep.

This highly-popular and well-rated duvet insert easily fills the duvet covers and can keep you cooler or warmer depending on the time of year.
Thinner duvet inserts for hot weather; thicker inserts for cold. 

The Science of Color: the solution to stress

NYC City Streets Painting Style Bedding

Color can affect our mood and influence our behavior. It's true. Ever wonder why fast food restaurants boast red and yellow logos and on their cups? Red and yellow are energy hues--eat and run--because they want you to do just that: hurry up and then it's on to the next diner.

Conversely, blue is 'the' color identified as a calming hue, one that's been documented as having a real effect on our mood. So, obviously, blue can make a fabulous space where you can literally leave the stress outside of your retreat. If you tend to bring your work home with you, or like me, you just can't seem to turn your mind off at night, consider blue walls or bedding sets like this one for your bedroom's palette.  

Striking Hues in Big City Fashion

City Skyline Bedding for a FAB NYC Themed Bedroom

Bold color can make the best focal image in your space. It's themed bedding like this one below that seemingly bursts forth from the wall in a high-energy 'look at me' kind of way. Bold hues give your bedroom an instant voice, one that is fully engaging, betraying your love for excitement , adventure, and a true blue definition of who you are. That's what your most intimate of spaces--your bedroom--should be.

It's all about you.   

Big City Lights: New York City Skyline Bedding in Neon

New York City Themed Skyline Bedding by DENY
 Neon lights are another big-city sight adding splendor and fab-u-lous-ness [is that even proper grammar?] we immediately recognize as NYC-glitz-and-glam-that-works--even in bedrooms. Can you feel the energy coming off this duvet? It has everything a focal piece needs to be: highly-visual, contrasts boldly with its surrounds and promises to properly 'WOW!' you and guests. The grey walls are just the right hue to lend an air of steel and the power of New York City's energy; one can almost experience the advancement of passengers. Don't you thinks so, too?  Love it!

New York City Skyline Wall Art

Wall art can make a fabulous statement on your bedroom walls or it can make a woeful one. The worst offenders are those art pieces that don't fit the wall around them. I'm talking about the 'lil' postage stamp' wall art, where the picture looks like all the other frames around it fell off the face of space!

New York City Brooklyn Bridge Poster 36"x 24"

B oth themed, wall poster prints above are a great way to add sizable wall art for ultra-cheap. Their 36"x24" size is standard for posters; that will save you big time on frames. 

I'm loving the popular New York City window print, above. If you've a space needing a window, this poster gives the impression that one exists and you're in a high rise--pretty cool. 

Since most posters are available in this size, you'll only have to invest in frames once in a lifetime. Come time for a new look in your bedroom space, you'll only have to pop out the old art work and in with the new. Go as quality as you can with your frame and budget; you'll get your money's worth for sure.  

New York Wall Decals:

     a best kept secret

New York Skyline Wall Decal: Budget Themed Art

Wall decals are a definite fave of mine;
they're easy to apply and not at all like grandma's wallpaper. Decals are repositionable and reusable; if you make a mistake, just peel off and start again.

How cool is that? 

Notice how well this uber-budget-friendly New York themed wall decal fits the width of the bed in this image. You want your pieces to hog the wall's attention wherever you hang or place it and not look like a member of the Lonely Hearts Club. 

Your Budget:                                keeping it real in the 'big city'

I've done it one too many times: spent more than I should have
and regretted it. We all do it with that 'gotta-have' piece of whatever
only to say, "What was I thinking?"

Not fun.  

New York Vintage Style Table Lamp
The biggest lesson that came outta that picture I bought--and shouldn't have--
is there's always a look-alike out there. Somewhere. I found these too cool accent
lamps that are well under $40! The crazy thing about them is I found the same lamp for
over $100! For real? Yup. It just goes to show if you look a bit longer (oh, the pains of clicking
our mouse) you can find your more palatable compromise; often, it's a better option than the 
high-dollar piece. Take your time and save a dime (yes, I just made that one up).  

Well, these Total Fab bedding sets and basic accessories should get you off and running to a great start on your New York City themed bedroom.  Drop me a line or three and let me know which New York City piece inspires you most!

Graffiti Comforter & Bedding Sets for Boys & Girls: More Than Bedding with Words On It

  $31.95  Graffiti Bedding: Comforter & Pillow Sham Set

Fun & Funky: Graffiti Comforters, Bedding & Related Decor

Decorating with Graffiti Bedding sets and funky decorative pieces like these will transform your teen boy's or girl's blah bedroom to new urban street heights in freedom of expression.

2/3 piece Graffiti Bed Set  from $59.95

During the graffiti boom, where new, more complex styles of this novel art form were being expressed by 'writers' in Philadelphia and Brooklyn, the 'writing' took on a competitive vibe where the scale of the words morphed into 'masterpieces' and exclusive designs were now known as 'tags'.
Fast forward to today, and we know graffiti as an amazing expression of self in urban art; what better way to make a nondescript bedroom space your very own than to appoint graffiti comforters and other bedding that sport such a fascinating written art form?

  $59.99 Graffiti Bedding: Duvet & Pillow Sham Set

Scroll down for a glimpse of uber-urban graffiti bed sets at their very best along with cool ideas to take your room up a notch--or ten. And I've included some great examples of graffiti bedding and related accessories and wall art you're gonna love along with tips on how to use them for a jaw-dropping result.

Getting Started with Your Graffiti Theme Bedroom: Go for the Bold in Graffiti Bedding

Ideally, you want to begin your decor scheme with the room's focal point (the space's largest decorative element).
Beds make the ultimate show-stopper in bedrooms: they're often the space's largest piece, so your bedding has quite a job of setting the stage, introducing your theme and anchoring all other supporting decorative pieces.


Your Space's Voice: Your Own Graffiti Bedding Style Speaks Out

  $39.95 Graffiti Bedding: & Pillow Sham Set

Decide what ''voice' you want your bedding to betray. Will it be a splash of loud color? Or, will you be going dark and mysterious? Obviously, color brings an uplifting air about it, while the black and white bedding is the serious version of 'cool'.
There's no wrong choice; it's all very personal. Go with your passion in making your space truly yours. Here's a selection of bedding that will support your graffiti theme. Some of the bed sets here are obviously full-on graffiti but don't limit yourself to graffiti-or-bust pieces. I explain more about this below.

Color & More Color: a Graffiti Must Have

See how well the color in this wall art complements the otherwise, unrelated bedding above? Even if an admirer wasn't familiar with the 60's relationship between the two, the hues of each seem to grab hold of their color-match making them perfect mates.
Go easy with such striking design work and allow like pieces to stand out without the interruption from other, less-important pieces. Indeed, Less is More!

But Is It Graffiti? 
I've often used pieces in themed rooms that are simply 'suggestive' of the theme, much like this Squiggle duvet set. Not true-blue graffiti, the squiggles do have the lines and style that betray the makings of graffiti, so it will make a great addition to your themed space.
I like the idea that, while the bedding isn't quite 'there' in graffiti, it will do nicely in keeping your theme from going hog wild.
It's also a perfect companion for a colorful wall of graffiti. When visualizing the amazing hues of graffiti, It's easy to visualize with the bedding--a perfect pairing up of contrasts. Don't you think so?
NY City Skyline Graffiti Themed Wall Art

City Streets & Skylines = Convincing Graffiti Bedroom Theme
NYC skylines are another element that works well with your graffiti theme. I prefer a huge wall full of sky scrapers versus a small scaled piece. A great idea that's quite dramatic might be a skyscape lower on the wall and a spray of graffiti above. For very little investment you'll have one amazing focal or accent piece that's sure to get plenty of attention.
Pick your largest wall and go for it!

Wall Art is a Must for Your Graffiti Bedroom Theme

Graffiti Theme Bedroom Wall Art Decal

I like how the Brooklyn graffiti wall decal, here consumes the entire wall space.
Wall art is crucial to any space's decor, it's true, but no more so than in a graffiti themed room. Indeed, you'll need at least on wall full of the tell-tale deliberate scrawl. But your artwork must be the appropriate size for the wall or you'll have lost its impact, its ability to WOW!

Keeping Your Graffiti Art Art: The Right-Sized Art for Your Wall

All too often, I've seen art that gets lost in a sea of drywall, where a picture is so small it hardly makes an impression, let alone be called art. Spatially, you need to keep to the 'small wall, small art' and 'big wall, big art' mantra; it's that simple. Graffiti artists figured this scale-thing out quite
You can easily create your own graffiti piece on a giant roll of paper and unfurl it like a mural in your room. I love the idea, so I've included a helpful video below. Like anything, practice makes perfect. If you're not confident, there's a plethora of graffiti wall decals you can easily apply to your walls for a instant WOW! factor.

A Bit About Graffiti's Beginning

Graffiti: An Enduring Art Form

Graffiti was born in the 1960s at a time of free love and expression, so it makes sense to pair up the decade's trademark styles with the likes of tie dye, peace signs and other groovy art. As I mentioned, everything in your room needn't be graffiti. Unique decor depends on melding your favorite interests into one broad spectrum. I know, I've made that idea seem complicated but really, just mix and match to your hearts content but try and keep things related in color, design or other elements you find a great match.
The bed sets here are just the cusp of what's available in 60's theme if that's where you're going. Notice that while these bed sets aren't graffiti, the graffiti wall art I show below go quite well when paired with the hues in these bedding sets. They both (the art and bedding) complement each other without being overdone.

What Graffiti Themed Bedroom Pieces are You Looking For: Girls' or Boys' Bedding & Decor?

Using Rugs in Your Space Rugs can do more than feel great underfoot; they can create the illusion of more floor space, ground the room's other pieces and transform the look of cold, hard floors into a warm ambiance. That's a lot to expect from a single decor element but rugs really earn their keep in any space they occupy if your floor space could use a few more feet here and there, consider placing the rug on the diagonal or semi-sharp angle tucked just under the bed a bit. Stand back and watch your room grow! Well, not really but the illusion is there and I'm a big-time fan of instant results. Bare, hard floors can leave a room looking cold and unfinished. Rugs tie the room's decor while creating a cohesive, finished look you'll love.This graffiti rug will tie in perfectly with your new theme without draining all the attention away from your focal point. Isn't it quite the unique piece?

I recommend using a comforter set like this one or those few below that'll work in your graffiti space quite nicely. This comforter set, while skater related, can lose most of its skateboard spirit when paired with graffiti wall art (I've some fabulous wall art, below) and accessories.Don't go overboard, just include enough of the graffiti theme to overshadow your bedding's original non-graffiti voice.
