Lava lamps were introduced some forty years ago, and they're still as popular as ever. If you don't know what a lava lamp looks like, it's basically an illuminated cone filled with a combination of clear liquid and colorful gel. When you plug in one of these lamps, the colorful liquid oozes from one end of the cylinder to the other.

Many people invest in novelty lighting devices like lava lamps for theme parties and other special events. You can decorate your home with lava lamps, beaded curtains, and colorful lights if you want to celebrate the birthday of a baby boomer. If you really want to impress your party guests, you can even hire a DJ to play music from the 1960s.

Dorm Room 101

If you're a parent of a college bound student, you've probably discovered how important it is for him to decorate his dorm room with unique and colorful items. For decades now, lava lamps have been a staple of dorm room décor. These lamps are great for adding a splash of color to the barren walls of most dorm rooms. They come in a variety of colors, but the shapes are also being changed up a bit, making them more unique. Colorful and funky task lighting is also a good idea to keep your student from straining their eyes.

If you want to add other accents to a dorm room, you might want to consider plastic storage devices, framed prints, posters, colorful desk lamps, and even small fish tanks. If you really want to treat your college bound child to something special you can even find small area rugs, microwave ovens, and even miniature refrigerators.
