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!'  





More Bed Sets Below, But I Had to Include This Lighting Piece:



 Light it Up: New York is Lights

     



Modern Tripod Floor Lamp: White or Black

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 this tripod floor lamp.


Perfect form; great function for modern, cosmopolitan bedroom spaces.  

Yes, it's budget-friendly.



















New York City Skyline Themed Comforter Set Under fr Under $35

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!


With this city skyline bedding set from under $35, you get: 1-black and white reversible comforter, two pillow shams (one for twin size) and bed skirt






Black and White New York City Cab Bedding Set



A Black & White 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

Aqua & Black & White New York Skyline Throw Pillow


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. 






NYC Skyline Themed Throw Pillow Under $20




Comforters and duvets can be fabulous in themselves but alone, they can be mighty flat if left without plumping up with the 'sweet stuff.' Throw in a few shapes, textures and hues to your otherwise flat bed set and VIOLA! 






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






Super-Uber-Cheap City Skyline/Cityscape Bedding Set
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. 
Easy~Peasy!









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!
