When it comes to kids’ bedrooms, little ones needn’t be short on style. There’s plenty of scope for being creative and chic in children’s bedrooms, it’s often just a matter of unleashing your own child-like imagination.
The easiest way to ensure your child’s bedroom stands the test of time (and their changing whims) is to start with a blank white canvas. White walls bring the items in front of them to life, so your child’s choice of wall decals, cute prints, toys and bedlinen will all jump to attention and set the mood. An all-white canvas also allows your child’s room to grow with them – decorations can easily be changed as they grow out of them.
We adore this sweet girl’s bedroom where pastel colours and a cute owl theme bring a sense of wonder and whimsy to an all-white space. The Cotton House quilt cover and pillowcases are particularly alluring, and note-perfect for a growing girl
A house motif enlivens a traditional pink-and-purple quilt cover in this little girl’s bedroom. Rather than princess-y, the bedding gives the space an urban and creative feel. It also sets the tone for the rest of the room, with a complementary pink rug and ornate bed head and bedside table. Fresh blooms are a lovely touch, too.
Forget cartoon motifs that will go out of favour – boys’ rooms look brilliant dressed in stripes. Simple blue-and-white gives a nautical feel, or choose a quilt cover like this one from Cotton House, which gives classic stripes a colourful twist. The strong colours in the quilt can them inform the remaining decor, including a red round clock and bunting above the bed. The stripes also allow the quilt to be mixed back with sheets of any colour within the quilt.
