Decorating a child’s room does not mean you need to forego style and panache. These days children are able to express their tastes in many different ways, their bedroom and playroom being a key area they can communicate their likes and dislikes. Gone are the days of simple glow-in-the-dark stars stuck to a ceiling, and a racing car shaped bed. Children are exposed to different styles and designs, which shape their taste and predilection for certain styles and designs. Encouraging your child to have input when decorating their room can help to form a bond with their private domestic space. It can be extremely important for a child to have a place that is their own, an area in which to store their belongings, clothing, and toys.  By allowing them input into the design of their room, they will take ownership over the area, which can help to build respect. 

If you would like to see some stylish children’s spaces that encourage chic modernity, style and flair, take a peek at the examples below, and design your little one’s space with elegance and bravura.

This bedroom is truly delightful. Perfect for a child, as well as young teens, the space is bright and inviting, making the most of a light and bright colour scheme. The walls are neutral and bright, which allows the rest of the rooms furniture to take centre stage, and allows for tastes and designs to change over time. The timber floorboards are also white, creating a sense of airiness and spacious living. The decor is eclectic and this helps to infuse the space with creativity and originality. Pair the room with a low-maintenance sisal mat, simple iron bedhead, and wall motifs, for a sleeping space that oozes uniqueness and style.

Luxurious accessories

Accessories can really make or break a space. This throw rug from Fabulous Goose, is a great example of a timeless item that can evoke a plush sense of sumptuousness in any room. Ideal for making cubbies, or snuggling up to watch a movie, throw blankets and rugs are the effortless key to style and interior design success.

An enjoyable playrom
