Setting the scene for a fun and relaxing environment for your children requires a little forward planning and lots of imagination. First of all, think about colour choice wisely, your little one’s favourite colour may be neon green today but might not be next week. So try to find a compromising colour palette, lighter versions of a favourite colour or white walls with easily changed colour accents in the shape of cushions and pictures can be the simplest option.
Be inspired by your child’s favourite things and even memories from your own childhood. It could be a favourite book or film, or even a particular place, having a theme is a great way to keep the room’s scheme flowing and can make it much more enjoyable and personal in style. Did you love building dens when you were little? Create their own space to escape with a tipi filled with blankets and charming cushions, it’ll be the perfect place to sit and read together before bedtime.
Storage is the biggest problem faced when redesigning a child’s bedroom, mainly because you need a lot of it. Toys, clothes, towels and all sorts of items end up all over a child’s bedroom and roomy storage solutions are a must if you are going to keep their bedroom tidy. Try to incorporate storage solutions into your theme or colour palette, a playful colourful wardrobe and toy trunks are ideal for keeping large items out of sight, and large baskets are perfect for quick tidy ups. If you keep storage fun and colourful it should inspire your child to be tidier.
The bed linen and soft furnishings are the key attraction in any bedroom, but especially in a child’s. Don’t be afraid to mix bold colours that perhaps you wouldn't normally, and introduce fun motifs and patterns that wouldn’t work elsewhere. Patterns have more of a poetic license in a little one’s room, as you can get away with a much busier design. Make bed time fun and inspire their imagination with Snurk’s range of wild and whimsical bed linen. Bursting with ballerinas and astronauts, their wildest dreams will be realised long before their heads hit the pillow.
Have fun with unexpected details, such as a whimsical lamp or nightlight and finish the room with a playful rug & cute accessories. Moxon’s weird and wonderful ornaments and Carapau’s cuddly handcrafted creatures are perfect for animal lovers, while unicorn fans will be thrilled with Podevache’s vinyl floor mat and Meri Meri’s fantastical blankets & soft toys.
