Don't go overboard with large and expensive changes. I tend use more accessories and paint. Great options are removable wall decals; they come in every size, color and theme. They will give you a great look, using the child's interest with a small price tag. You can blend them with a wall color (their choice) even if just on an accent wall. Another favorite of mine are carpet tiles; they add great color and texture. Using accessories that follow the theme of the room make it is easy to change in the next few years as you child and their interest grow.
If you prefer to incorporate some pattern, there are some great retro-style prints about, featuring cowboy or seaside themes. However, special children's fabrics depicting beloved cartoon characters, super heroes or pop idols, are bound to be their favorite. If you start with out with a simple, classic theme of which your child approves -- nautical, sports, zoo animals, colorful fruit and flowers, little princess or Shaker inspired folk art -- you can share your enthusiasm and build on it together by adding curtains, cushions, throws and new bed linens. The fabric should be hard wearing and easy to care for, as they are bound to get well used, covered in sticky fingerprints.
Many parents like to decorate their kids' rooms with a cute theme. This is probably not a good idea unless money is no object, since kids grow quickly and tastes change. If you don't mind spending a lot on a new theme every few years, that's O.K., but most people can't or don't want to spend that kind of money. Better to have a neutral room so where you don't have to throw the old stuff away constantly. Just look around at garage sales some day. You will see entire rooms of so-called "themes" going for ten cents on the dollar.
