Wanderlust interiors for kids

Map bunting from Peony & Thistle

We are currently in the process of updating Mr A's room as he will be turning 5 next week and has long out-grown his toddler bed. We have felt this has also marked the time that now he has really started his journey of boyhood and is no longer the baby of the family but rather an adventurous, confident and spirited young boy, who needs a space that reflects his interests and passions such as travel and his love of the outdoors. Here are a few things that we are loving at the moment and would work perfectly in a travel inspired kids room.

Steamer travel trunk from Notonthehighstreet

I love this handmade Steamer travel trunk which would work perfectly as a kids toys storage box. The vintage travel stamps add a lovely retro feel to the box and its so well made it should it could be passed down from child to child or even work well in a living room. We are also trying to encourage Mr A to make notes, start writing and drawing more as journal his adventures so when I came across this beautiful handmade journal I thought this would make a great birthday present for next week.

I also love the idea of some map bedding or something along those lines, you have to be a bit careful with this sort of thing not to make the room to busy with different patterns and prints which is why I love this blanket so much as you can use it as a throw and take it on and off as you feel.

I cannot wait to show you what his updated room looks like when we finally finish and I cannot believe my little man is going to be 5. It seems like such a big number all of a sudden and we are looking forward to the adventures that it brings with it.


  1. What wonderful choices! This will certainly be a kid's room with a difference.

  2. I love that trunk so so much, so beautiful. And map bedding sounds amazing! x

  3. I love these! I want them for myself! I love proper trunks like those and when they have some kind of vintage travel look about them it makes it every better! Love any kind of vintage map :D

  4. These are gorgeous! Particularly love the trunk!!

  5. I really love the map blanket, that is so cute!! Some fab ideas here, will be interested to see what the new room looks like when complete x

  6. Oh this is so nice! I love the World Map blanket! It is so cute!! Great choices! :-) x

  7. This looks great, I really like that blanket with the map on x

  8. We have a major wanderlust themed element in the nursery which we are finishing off this week, that steamer trunk would go so well with it!

  9. I really like this theme and it will grow with him as he gets older I think. My 9 year old son Charlie still loves stuff like this! x

  10. Happy birthday to Mr A! These are lovely choices. They'd all go down well in our house too. I love having maps around in all forms- so educational too x

  11. Happy Birthday A! I love the idea of a travel themed bedroom, I think travel is one of the greatest gifts you can give a child :) x
