For dinosaur gardens, a colorful container adds an element of fun. There are many size options when it comes to dinosaurs, but I used very small dinosaurs tucked in among the plants and bits of glittery holiday decor. With children in mind, I thought it would be more fun for them to slowly discover the creatures in the landscape.
On season four of HGTV Design Star, contestant Antonio designs a bedroom for five-year-old Connor, who loves dinosaurs and art. The headboard and footboard are designed to look like stones, and fun dinosaur cutouts are added to the walls.
Designer Genevieve Gorder has a bone to pick with this room design. "My fear with this room is that the child will love it today but outgrow it tomorrow, and that's a waste," explains Candice. "Quality core pieces like the dressers are great starting points; they'll last forever and transition easily. I would have liked to see the theme established with more attention to the temporary accessories in this room rather than the more permanent construction elements."
White brick wallpaper creates an accent wall behind the bed in this classy kids room with a focus on dinosaurs. A round brass table sits beside the bed with a white lamp, and on the other side of the room, a small dresser with framed dinosaur art above.
The Cabazon Dinosaurs are an iconic roadside attraction in Palm Springs, Calif., so naturally designer Michelle Gage wanted to include them in the living room. Thus, she blew up a photo that the homeowner snapped while on vacation, framed it and hung it over the fireplace for visual interest.
These homeowners wanted to incorporate their love of whimsy into their home decor, so designers added glass domes containing colorful, plastic dinosaurs as the centerpiece for the dining table and the back of the dining bench. These dinosaurs are small, but their contribution to the overall feel of the design in immeasurable.
Unlike most rugs, which can only be spot cleaned or dry cleaned, Ruggable rugs can be washed in your own washing machine. They're low-pile and lightweight, making it easy to stuff even an 8x10 rug into your machine. The dinosaur pattern is both playful and stylish for a playroom.
With deep green walls, crisp white bedding, playful artwork and kooky dinosaur skeleton models, this kid's bedroom is the perfect combination of whimsy and refinement. A metallic nightstand completes the tasteful design.
Corn mazes are especially popular with problem solvers and those who enjoy brain teasers but not everyone enjoys getting lost in a corn field so think twice before you enter one. You might not come out for hours. The folks at the Great Vermont Maze devised this especially tricky, dinosaur-themed corn maze for their 2014 event.
