Putting the fun into kids bedroom interiors


stylish kids room


A child's bedroom should be a place of wonder and whimsy, a place where imagination can flourish and fun is the name of the game. It needs to be approached in a different way to other rooms in the house and you need to realise that it's a place to play and things don't need to be perfect. In the past two years we have gone through three house moves, renovating and redecorating and our first port of call has always been Mr A's room as it was important he felt comfortable in his space.

I always get really excited when I see quirky and cool items that just screams fun but is also chic and stylish and perfect for an inspiring children's bedroom and interior. So when I came across these playful and colourful wall pieces from Urbanara I just knew this would go straight on my list of things to get for Mr A's room. They are handmade with wool felt and made using an appliqué design, there are six different animals heads to choose from, my favourite being the woodland inspiration that is Mr Fox as well as the African Giraffe and Elephant.

Don't be scared to mix bold colours and unusual patterns together, just don't go over the top in terms of over stimulation and clutter as less is always more and start with a white base and layer on top of that to create a magical interior for your child.

It's the small touches and finishes that make up a room and I really love these beautiful hand woven pillow cases with cute little appliqués on them, from African designs to Anchors, they would fit perfectly with the animal wall decorations and if your looking for some unique lighting check out the Whale print lampshade or ethically produced and handwoven pendant which is made from recycled straw and plastic and would light up a kids room beautifully.

The main thing to remember when styling and decorating a child's bedroom is it's not like an adults bedroom, there needs to be a fun factor to it and it's a great opportunity to take risks and bring some colour into the home.
