Decorating with these tie dye bedding sets is where 'spiraling out of control' is a good thing!

Tie dye bedding is such a captivating, mesmerizing look that creating a focal point is easy-peasy. Its bold, in-your-face design is 'retro cool' and an enduring decorating fave of tweens and teens alike.

But what to do with the rest of the room?

Here's where things can get a bit tricky with balancing your bedroom's decor. Not to worry, though; I'll show you how to get from point A to point B-dazzling with a few key pointers beginning with your tie dye bedding set.

Follow me through a maze of the three Cs for success: color, contrast and cool. It's not hard, I promise.

Scroll down for a selection of fun, tie dye bedding sets and inspiring ideas to bring your space from boring to bling in no time.

The Many Faces of Tie Dye

Surround Yourself in What You Love

Getting Started: Mild or Wild - Creating Your Voice with Tie Dye Bedding Sets

I'm forever lauding the power of bedding sets in their purpose as the room's focal point. With tie dye bedding, the designs can be quite distinct from one another; one comforter might be subdued while another might be glaringly obvious. I recommend making the decision to go tie dye bold ~ or not ~ by what color you plan for the room''s walls and whether you've a bedding set that's to 'dye' for.

White walls can support both genres of tie dye design and color, while high-energy wall colors like banana yellow and red are best let to the bold, tell-tale spirals tweens and teens love. For subdued tie dye designs, I suggest pulling a color from the bedding and bathing walls in any hue of the same family or a color opposite the color wheel for contrast.

Ultimately, you want the bedding to take over in the room and layer your other decorative pieces around it.

This purple tie dye bedding set above, has the subdued, yet funky look if you're looking to go mild.

Keeping Your Tie Dye in Check: Remember: Dazzling Not Dizzying

There's no mistaking the mystical allure of the tie dye spiral; it's quite a strong, striking design that captures the eye in an instant--which is a great thing. OrNoT!


But, the tie dye spiral can fast spiral out of control and become a dizzying mesmerizer if you're not careful Remember, you want an effect that's dazzling, not dizzying--especially in bedrooms where tranquility and retreat are two words that best describe a successful result.

Your Tie Dye Palette: It's All About Balance

 

Your Tie Dye Focal Piece

 

I suggest using the bed to betray your tie dye theme and then follow with nondescript, plain pieces; solids are the better choice for window treatments and accessories. If you want more themed pieces, reserve them to a single accent pillow on a plain chair or a single piece of wall art, so your guests aren't in a hypnotic state when they leave. It's true that too much of a good thing is, well . . . not so good!

Balancing Your Tie Dye Themed Pieces

Keeping a good handle on your tie dye bedding set and themed decor, plain pieces are a must for creating a pulled-together space.

Decorating or the 'In-Between Tween': Girls' Tie Dye & Peace Sign Bedding Set

 

tie dye bedding sets for that in-be-'tween' stage

Tween girls are fast approaching tween-dom and from my experience, a major bedroom overhaul is usually in order.

Yesterday's Bambi has been replaced with today's Bieber.

But if you're not ready to go all-out funky, 'in-between' pink, turquoise, and orange bedding and decor much like this set works well to placate a blossoming tween.

You'll still have a touch of girl with a splash of cool in the peace sign; it's the perfect compromise.

 

Keeping Cool with Hot Pink Tie Dye

Hot pink is such an alive color. I deferred from saying "lively" as this dynamic hue is definitely ALIVE ~ hot pink bounces off walls and springs from the bed.

As you can see, the model room here is chock full of hot pink and peace sign accessories. Indeed, the pieces match but using more than one matching pair will dilute the power of your bedding, clutter the room and is downright dizzying.

Every piece thereafter cancels out the last. Keep your cool with hot pink and peace signs; it's easy to go overboard REAL fast.

If you want that matching doo-dad, use it on an opposing wall where it won't compete with its mate.

With hot pink a little goes a long way.

Getting the Most from Your Bedding

Versatile Tie Dye Bedding Set

If you're decorating for a tween or teen you know how quickly tastes can change. Having a dynamic bedding set will set the tone of your space, introduce your room's genre and welcome guests in with its amazing design.

That's quite a lot to expect from your focal point but with the right comforter or duvet it can get the job done. This is why I recommend you go as lavish as economically feasible with your bedding.

Appointing the Window: Less is More

Ideal Tie Dye Coordinates: Rainbow Sheer Panels

Keep Your Tie Dye Bedding Set the Star with Solid Window Panels

It's only natural to bathe your bedroom's every space with tie dye pieces, but solid color window panels are really the way to go for that crucial balance I talked about earlier.

These uber-cheap sheer window panels can mirror the hues in your tie dye bedding set without the busy look in your comforter and other bedding. The tie dye bedding sets at the start of this article can be accented by hanging two or more color panels for a cool, pulled-together finish.

It may seem only natural to mirror the tie dye look of the bedding onto your windows.

My advice us to 'broach this approach' with caution.

Remember, you'll have best results when you allow your bedding to take charge in your space, grabbing the eye and allowing it to move smoothly around the bedroom without a dizzying assault.

Tie dye spirals can do that.

Less is more.

DIY Tie Dye without the Mess!

Stop the insanity!

Here's a great video for creating your own tie dye anything--without the mess. This process can be used for pillowcases and all you need is rubbing alcohol and Sharpie pens in your decor's color.

You'll love it and it's a fabulous project for the whole family.
