Teddy bears are loved by both little children and grown adults. Teddy bears can be included in your decor subtly or more overtly, depending on your taste. Whether you're simply displaying a teddy bear collection or wish to paint a large mural of stuffed bears on your guest room wall, there are many ways to decorate with teddy bears. You can use decor items, such as lamps, pillows and picture frames with teddy bear motifs, or decorate with the real stuffed bears. As you decorate, you'll find what you like and what you don't and adjust your plans accordingly. Here are some ideas to inspire your creativity as you decorate with teddy bears.
Use an old-fashioned teddy bear to complement a French country or rustic style room. Set the bear on top of a dresser or low bookshelf. A crocheted doily and painted bead board complete the effect.
Display teddy bears that signify your interests, hobbies, or even the country your family is from. A bear with British flag patches reminds an family of their ties to England.
Group several teddy bears in a display on a small bench or chair. This display will look nice in front of an unused fireplace, in an empty corner or other bare spot in a room.
Use teddy bears in your decor by matching them to the style or color of the room. A Victorian style room would be complemented by a fancily dressed bear, while a man's den and office would be complemented by a rustic bear holding a fishing pole.
Set out seasonal bears, or dress a display teddy bear for the season. In December, a red and white hat and a sprig of holly send a cheerful message, and in the spring a teddy bear dressed as an Easter bunny will bring a smile.
