Whether you’re designing a themed room in your own home or looking to staycation at a home away from home right here in Orlando, we’re exploring ways to bring your bucket list into your living space.
Dream of Your Next Getaway
he king-sized mattress is set in a restored sailboat with a headboard that matches the boat’s rich wooden trim and deck. The other side of this custom-made bed has an extended base and steps made from weathered wood to match. It’s almost as if you washed ashore onto a deserted island, placed the boat on the sand and created your own comfy shelter.

You might not be lying in a sailboat on the ocean looking up at the night sky as the movement of the waves lull you to sleep. But you might as well be. Along with the sailboat, a mosaic wave stretches across the floor, traveling along the base of a sliding glass door, from wall to wall. Glass tiles with varying shades of turquoise make up this mosaic, playing off of the sandy colored tile floor. Accent pieces like a worn propeller pull the whole theme together.
Catch a Ride
When you have loft space that you don’t know what to do with, turn it into a game room. This loft features a couch and TV for lounging while mixing in an NYC setting, complete with a yellow taxi cab that has working headlights and tail lights and an overhead light that mimics an authentic NYC taxi’s roof light. Tip! This space is all about the little details rather than just the main focal point of the room, which is the pool table. When you add elements such as this industrial end table like one you would find at a cab company’s home base and brick tile flooring, you are able to set the scene in a themed space.
Explore Outer Space
Celebrate Central Florida’s space history with a themed bedroom that is perfect for the youngest members of the family. When they’re in their room playing or drifting off to sleep, a creative space such as this encourages their imaginations to run wild as they dream of all the possibilities of what lies just outside of Earth’s atmosphere. Tip! Custom furniture helps to bring the theme to life. Here, the dresser and the end tables are made from similar materials that are used by the space program to make it feel like you’re on the space shuttle or in the space station. It’s almost like you’re living life a real astronaut.
