When decorating a child’s bedroom, it’s always sensible to look for styles that offer longevity, ensuring that the space can adapt easily as your child grows.
One of the best ways to ensure this versatility is with a simple, gender neutral palette, designed to be loved by children and parents alike. After all, children change their minds a lot! By keeping the majority of the space and its colours neutral and airy, you can use details to bring warmth and character, switching these accents out as and when your child’s tastes change. This will create a room that is peaceful yet inspiring, encouraging your little one to rest and play.
With this in mind, try to stick to a simple and neutral backdrop, choosing wall colours and flooring that will stand the test of time (as well as being hard wearing!)
Beyond the paint, wallpaper and floor, it is the fabrics that play one of the biggest roles in child’s room design. Consider hand drawn prints that will inspire imaginations while providing a cool, stylised edge. Geometrics are another great choice, offering a sleek balanced look that will coordinate with a more Scandinavian style. Or consider watercolour styles, depicting flowers, animals and trucks in fun splashes of red, green and blue. For a super fun and customised look, try personalised fabrics, which depict beautiful designs along with your child’s name or initials.
Remember, you shouldn’t feel forced to be overly coordinated. The beauty of a child’s room – and any room in the home, in fact – is that it brims with personality, playfulness and contradiction.
