There’s something undeniably exciting about decorating a kid’s room. It’s your chance to be as bold and brave as you like, embracing a little magic and fun along the way. To ensure your child’s room comes together as one seamless and stylish look, be sure to check these essentials off your shopping list.
GO BOLD WITH BEDLINEN
There’s plenty of time for little ones to indulge in chic and simple looks when they grow up, so have fun now exploring a cacophony of colour and shape with a striking kids’ quilt cover set. Be it the mysteries of the jungle or the adventures of safari that sparks your child’s imagination, there’s an endless array of looks to inspire from big bedding brands.
CREATE ANOTHER WORLD WITH ART
According to The Home stylist, Emma Blomfield: ‘The best art choices are those you are instantly drawn to,’ so be sure to involve the kids in this fun shopping expedition. If art is the last piece bought for the room, narrow the selection for your little one down to a palette already feature in the room. If it’s the first, use your choices as a guide for decorating the rest of the space.
Decorating tip: use smaller pieces to stand on shelves and tables if walls space is scarce
ADD A SOFT SPOT WITH A RUG
This busy hub will endure a lot of playing! A rug not only adds colour and character to a room, it also makes for a comfy nook where kids can play atop. Whether they’re sprawled out getting lost in their latest read, or engineering the perfect block building, a rug is a welcome addition for an inviting look and feel.
Decorating tip: use round rugs to fill awkward spots in small rooms.
BE SMART WITH GOOD STORAGE
Make the daily bedroom clean up quick and easy with smart storage. Colourful stacking shelves create order to an otherwise rebellious pile of toys, and can be shuffled around the room or mixed and matched to create a look that suits the space. Keep handy jars close by to house smaller items, and invest in a simple work desk that can transition from storage to work space.
