I don’t know about you, but for me listening to professional decorators can be confusing.

They talk about the flow in a room, the focal point, what makes your eyes flow from one object to the other, too much colour, not enough colour, too dark, too bright and on……..and on…….!

It’s no wonder people are afraid to express themselves, so therefore, they stay safe with white and beige tones, sparse furnishings and accessories, to just leaving their rooms bare.

Circus Theme Decor for Bedrooms

Circus Theme Decor is usually associated with bedrooms for young children, but I have seen some really cool Circus theme dens as well. One of my sisters-in-law has an Antique Circus theme in her family room off the kitchen and it looks so whimsical and artistic and inviting. We all hang out in the “Circus Room” when we visit.

So for this page I will concentrate first on Circus theme Bedrooms and Circus theme bedding, and then later on I will address how to decorate a Circus theme Den or Family Room. I have tried to find everything you could possibly want or need to decorate any room in Circus Decor; Circus bedding, Circus art, Circus posters, Circus pillows, rugs and other Circus decorative items. I also offer tips on how to pull it together for a smashing Circus Theme room. Enjoy!

Circus Theme Decorating Tips

How to Decorate a Circus Theme Bedroom

When my son was young, he had such a sunny disposition that I painted his room yellow, and decorated it in antique Circus posters and a big Circus pinata in the corner, with a red bedspread and blue pillow cases. I added a few Circus toys and painted his lamp with clown stencils. He loved it, and it was very easy to decorate. So you don’t need to go overboard to create a Circus theme bedroom; you just need a few touches to create a dramatic and fun Circus bedroom.

Since the bed takes up so much visual space, it’s a good idea to decide on its color first. So in a Circus bedroom, you could either get a Circus theme comforter set, or you could just go with a solid color bedspread or comforter and add in Circus theme pillows, bedding, sheets, and blankets, or even use different solid colors for all the bedding, and add in Circus artwork either way you go. There are also the rug and the curtains to consider. I think the biggest mistake people make is to overdo the theme. A few pieces do enough suggestion, and it’s a bedroom, you don’t want it too “noisy” visually.

So if you go with a patterned bedspread, you can either get matching curtains, and then stick to solid colors for the accessories, or even solid curtains too. And use different colored sheets and blankets to add to the Circus theme. If you go with a solid color bedspread or comforter, you can add a different colored set of sheets, and some Circus theme throw pillows. Maybe even a Circus canopy.

Now for the walls you have a choice also. You can use Circus decals which are a great idea for children, because when they get to be teens, they will want something else and you can just peel the wall decals off and start over. But maybe you would rather have some Circus theme art or Circus wall decor of a different type. All those ideas work great. I will add more ideas as you read along.

Circus Theme Canopy

What a cool way to set the tone for a bedroom! And have a neat little hideaway too. Fun for sleepovers, play dates, and for hiding all those stuffed animals. With this as the set piece, you really don’t have to do much more to feel like you’re at the Circus. Just use some of the colors in this Circus Canopy for your bedspread, blankets, and sheets, add a few Circus pillows, some Circus art, and you are at the Circus!

Visit for some visuals.

Look how much fun this Circus theme bedding set is! Bright colors on a cool quilt set will keep your child entertained. This would look great with the canopy above too. Below I have a Circus Ball Rug that would also look cool with this bedspread, especially if you have wood floors. Nice to have a rug to snuggle your toes in, instead of a hard floor first thing out of bed. Also notice the lamp in this picture. Lamps in a Circus theme are hard to find. But you could easily cover a lampshade with striped wrapping paper to get a lamp that looks like the one here.

Circus Theme Comforter

And definitely easy to turn into a different theme if you or your child tires of the Circus theme.

Allow myself to introduce myself

Let me introduce ourselves, I’m Jane and my husband is Gavin, we live in Melbourne, Australia. We have also lived in Germany on two separate occasions, once on in Hamberg and the second time on in the capital ‘Berlin’.

We always seem to find our way back to our roots in Melbourne. Who knows, we may get restless and miss having it snow over christmas and end up in the northern hemisphere again.

My hobby is painting art in most mediums, oil, water, acrylic, pencil and ink, preferably on different materials other than canvas. My other hobby is recycling and transforming discarded furniture into unique workable pieces.

We didn’t realise it at the time, but Gavin and I have been contributing to mother earth and have been green for a number of years. We have a lot of stuff that we have rescued and recycled into some pretty cool art and furniture pieces.

I’ve planned and put on my share of weddings and any other type of event from birthdays to bar and bat mitzvahs.

As much passion as I have for art and being creative, everyday life gets in the way and I find little time for the things I like to do.

I have sold my paintings and commissioned art work, but I didn’t like it. It wasn’t my hobby anymore, and took the fun out of it for me.

Our Haus is the perfect way for me to be creative with different projects and share my ideas and discoveries with everyone.

My goal is to develop this site into a home decorating neighborhoods filled with tips, tricks and ideas from not only me but contributions from our neighbours.

Our Haus also gives Gavin and I a chance to team up and work on projects together. He has the knack for finding unique stuff at flea markets, garage sales, junk and antique stores and I have fun transforming his finds.
