1 - Keep it simple - A neutral colour palette is key to a great child’s room. Choose light airy neutral colours, this creates a chic base as well as a calm atmosphere. Neutral colours give you flexibility to add pop of colours with accessories like bed linen, cushions and throws.
2 - Layers of love – Add more texture. Choose comforting fabrics such as bamboo sheets made from high quality organic bamboo. The collection is designed with understated, classic elegance and features cooler colours that will contrast beautifully against a Lavender Hills upholstered bedhead.
3 - Grow with me – Invest in classic and timeless furniture that will adapt to the growth of a child. Lavender Hill Interiors bedside table and chest of drawers which feature fluted legs and drawers, or Incy Interiors teeny change tables which is adaptable and can be later used as a bookshelf when baby gets a little bigger.
4 - Frame it – select wall decals that have a mature twist such as Alan Walsh Posters and can be transferred from the bedroom to the lounge.
5 - SPACI-AL Awareness: For all those bits of lego! Yes, you know it!
Invest in chic storage such as Olli Ella’s range of baskets which will empower rather than overwhelm the room like plastic containers do.
6 - Throw down your style. Introduce warmth into your children’s room with a statement throw or rug that is durable, made from quality material and will help protect the carpet underneath from natural spills and thrills when children play! Fab Habitat’s Tangier in Celery and White which is woven from straws made up of recycled plastic, so you can just shake or hose off for easy cleaning.
7 - Children have a say – it is important that your child enjoys the process and feels as though they had input. Kids enjoy imagining their dream room and are interested in designing their own bedroom.
