Classroom Decor

I've been rethinking my classroom decor this summer and I think I've finally got a vision in my head. For years I've just kind of thrown things together but after this past year, and all the blog stalking I've done, I've decided to actually stick to one theme. I really like the way it looks when the boarders and colors are consistent throughout the room. Now, I  need to do this on a budget, working with what I've already got. So, while I love the coral and turquoise color combo and some of the paisley and chevron prints I've seen out there, I've got to stick to my plan of not spending a fortune. Lord knows I could! I don't do animals or pirates, or jungles. Even when doing my son's nursery I had such a hard time because all the boy bedding sets were monkeys and cars and dinosaurs. Ick, not my scene. That means primary colors, folks!  I've got tons of red, blue, yellow, and green in my room. And now with my beautiful NEW RUG, I think it's what will look best and stand the test of time. I've been cruising all the teacher supply sites and settled upon Creative Teaching Press. They seemed to have everything I had in mind- modern and snazzy primary colors.  Here's my thought:

What do you think? I want it to be colorful but not "Holy Balls! My eyes are burning!" colorful. Ya know? I'm also a little apprehensive about my black fabric bulletin board idea. I've seen it in other classrooms and I love how it makes the items on display "pop". I'm just worried it'll be too dramatic or dark. So, there you have it. I would love and suggestions from my 9 followers. Hehe, that just makes me giggle. ;) I love all 9 of you!


  1. I love the black and red. I also like the colorful dots for the floor. How are you going to make your pennants? I have thrown around a couple of ideas and I just dont know yet! I am so happy you posted again. I look forward to reading your little bloggy!

  2. I missed your comment! The pennants are from CTP. I'm still waiting for my order though.... ;/ I hope it gets here soon so I can make my room look as great as yours does, ALREADY! You busy little bee, you!
