I’m always looking at new ideas and decor schemes in our home and I particularly love finding new inspiration for our children’s bedrooms. Dreamy kids interiors are always catching my eye and it definitely doesn’t hurt to keep them in mind for future room makeovers.
When you’re a child, I think it’s important to have a bedroom that you love to spend time in, as well as actually wanting to sleep in there. I remember loving my bedroom when I was little, as it was my own little haven with all of the things that I loved around me. It makes a world of difference to have an environment where kids can learn to enjoy spending some time on their own and maybe even look forward to bedtime – because they love their room!
We have a playroom (part-time dining room) for the boys to use but they also spend a bit of time in their room. We used to have the majority of their toys in their room at one time but seeing as they gradually migrated downstairs most of the time, we decided to change their playing space and make their bedroom a place to chill in rather than to play in. This frees up space in the room and makes it much tidier and more minimalist and a place naturally for sleeping in.
It’s fun mixing it up a little and making a wonderful little oasis for them. Children’s rooms are a great place to be creative and experiment with colours. Bold statement furniture also makes the space more fun.
For both the boys and our little girl, I love the feel of scandinavian styling and the eclectic look. I love whites and clean lines that incorporate bold, vibrant colours alongside wood tones. In my little girls nursery, I adore pastel colours, with gold and marquee letters at the moment.
We keep the walls plain and add pictures and decals. This makes it much easier to carry on updating their rooms as they start to get older. Cloud wallpaper might suit your child as a baby and toddler but it won’t easily carry through for when they are older and more ‘grown up’. There are now so many fantastic ideas for changing the look of rooms without you actually having to physically decorate. I used to love a good feature wall, but I now think that they limit what you can do to a room and also means you are likely to stick to a colour scheme or theme that you might now be bored of.
I am terrible for getting bored of schemes very quickly, so I’m already looking for a few new touches for their rooms…
