Class Decor Help

I realize I still have a whole quarter, plus all of summer to think about this, change my mind, be inspired and then change it again, but I have gotten an itch. I have been thinking of what kind of decor I will use in my classroom next year. Am I the only one? Have I lost my mind?

I though I had this all settled. For the past 2 years, I have used a Rainbow Stars theme. It was perfect because I could use all of Creative Teaching Press Poppin Patterns Stars products. I love this theme, one because I love rainbows and stars, the perfect combination. I use a dark background, like navy or black and the rainbow boarders.

 Then Creative Teaching Press came out with the Dots on Chocolate theme and I fell in love all over again. Because I am in two different schools this year, I could try out my new theme... a surfing theme.

I fell in love with the surfing theme and was all too ready to continue this until I saw Schoolgirl Style's Lemon Chiffon theme.

I started to get an itch. I am totally in love with the grays and yellows this year and although I this color theme might be a bit more of a challenge, I could totally love it. However, I think I will wait a year or two until I can pull it all together. BTW, Schoolgirl Style is having a sale in her Teacher's Notebook shop today only, so if your interested, today might be a great day to purchase some goodies.

My real struggle is because of a recent trip to Hobby Lobby where I found these gorgeous rainbow stars on black boxes and matching ribbon.
 It made me totally want to keep my current theme. Now I am super confused. So I thought I would bring it to you so you could help me decide.
 
If you click on the images on the right it will enlarge a picture of the theme.

  2. Oh how I love to decorate a classroom. I was the theme queen. This year I opted to go with just 2 colors with black borders and have been thrilled. I think the grey and yellow is lovely, but I feel classrooms should have a lively feel. Pick something that reflects you and you'll be happy.

  6. I love them all for different reasons but I think the rainbows/stars are the happiest for kids.

  7. I like them all, but your current theme rocks! I find it hard to follow a theme in every aspect, so I just pick the stuff I like... everything is bright and colorful... and it all works together!!

  12. I am with you. I too have been inspired to look at my theme for next year. I like your Rainbow Stars and Dots. I think I will be doing Dots and Owls, but like you this will probably change before September. Let us know what you do.
