“The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader” transports children to the far away land of Narnia – encountering dragons, dwarves and lost warriors.
The movie, and book, may have your child dreaming of fantastical adventures. What better way to spur his or her imagination than with a bedroom that immerses them in a land of make-believe?
First, start with the bed. This can be as simple as the bedding you choose – but you can also get creative with headboards. Why not create a castle or shield for the head of a bed?
If painting on a wall seems intimidating – there are some amazing stick-and-peel products to use. You can check out catalogs for Wall Pops and RoomMates products at Hirshfield’s. If you have a younger child, these Dragon Hunter wall stickers are fun and colorful.
How about creating a magic wardrobe for your child? This is an amazing addition to a room – if you have the space. It could even be a do-it-yourself project with a reclaimed armoire.
Consider using an image of a lamppost – which is a key part of the stories – or lion in honor of the character Aslan to bring “Narnia” home to your child.
Finally, use maps to lead your children through the story of a magical journey. Decorating with maps is a big trend right now and popular in all kinds of spaces. You can be literal and use a map from Narnia, or simply look for a map of the world to plan your adventures.
