On Your Marks - Rev up your engines, because we are going to transform your son's room into an awesome race car themed bedroom. He will practically be able to hear the roar of the NASCAR engines as they zoom on down the track, while he imagines he is driving his very own race car to the finish line. This fun race car themed comforter set features all different kinds of race cars, from stock cars to formula one race bullets, your son is going love the variety and different racing themes shown.
Youthful Appeal - This particular textile print has hand drawn stick figures driving the race cars, and was created for The Sticklers by a local Southern California graphic artist. The youthful theme, and familiar stick figure faces, will make your child feel like he had a hand in drawing or designing his own bedding. The smiling faces of The Stickler figures will welcome your son to bed every night, before he lumbers off to sleep to have this very own race car dreams.
How We Did It - For this bedroom, we used the race car comforter as the focal point of the room, and then began to work our way out to bring in other racing themed decor. We found this great racing floor rug online that has a formula one car on it, with black and white checkers around it, as well as a cute juvenile coordinating decorative pillow that matches the color schemes in our bedding. One great thing about this race car bedding set, is there are a lot of colors to work with, so you can really pick whatever color you like best, and bring out those colors with coordinating toss pillows, window treatments, rugs, a new sheet set, and wall decor. We picked out a few of the race cars from the artwork, cleaned them up in Photoshop, and printed them out on some basic sticky wall paper that you can find at any office supply store, and stuck them to the wall to bring in some dimension to the flat wall. Then added a few other wall hangings, and the race track has now been brought indoors to your son's bedroom!

Check out this fun bedroom designed by surf room designer Dean Miller. The entire bedroom was designed around our Under the Sea comforter pattern. This fun textile arrangement was hand drawn by a local Hawaiian artist, who wanted to bring his love for the ocean to life, by drawing colorful tropical fish swimming around a coral reef in the glittering sun. Dean Miller decided to use this fabric to hand sew into comforters, and bring an underwater paradise to life in your bedroom.

Tropical room designer Dean Miller has just received a new Birds of Paradise fabric that is sure to bring a little aloha to any room. This original design has a rich navy blue solid background with green tropical monstera leaves, and ferns. The iconic birds of paradise flower completes this tropical design, as the hand drawn flowers are tossed around in a multi colored repeat. A red flower with a contrasting blue birds beak is intermingled with the traditional artist rendering of what a tropical Birds of Paradise flower looks like.
This textile artwork is simple, and refined enough to transform any bedroom into a tropical paradise. You will be instantly transported back over to the Hawaiian Islands where you will fondly recall your last vacation, and how you dreaded going home.
