Once you get past the gazillion pieces of plastic, dirty socks and inevitably enormous selection of stuffed toys, kids rooms offer the potential to be one of the most interesting in the house. In a kids’ room, anything goes. Fancy a novelty shaped bed, like the one above (the white caravan bed, by Mathy by Bols at Nubie, £1235)? No problem. Or how about a fun selection of party decor strung around the room? Be our guest. From crazy colour schemes to feature furniture, the kids’ room is an opportunity to delve into the depths of your little one’s imagination and create a space that reflects their truly unique and individual mind.
Here are some of our favourite accessories picked from sellers at the Roost Shop to turn your kids’ room from bland to brilliant. As ever, simply add your chosen items to your cart and check out from here. You’re just a couple of clicks away from a Pinterest-perfect kid’s space…
Now you’ve had a chance to check out this little selection, let me introduce you to some other ideas to help turn your kids’ space into something properly amazing.
You don’t have to splash out thousands of pounds on an incredible bed like the one pictured at the top of this post. A simple mosquito net and a hula hoop can recreate a fairy tale bed of dreams. Or how about stringing some fairylights in a house shape around the head of the bed to bring a bit of extra magic to the bedroom? Even just painting the bed in bright colours can make a huge difference. If you’ve got the room you could always invest in some cute seating too. I absolutely love the new range for kids by MADE.com – my current favourite is the Ritchie mini 2 seater sofa in pearl grey with rainbow buttons, £299. *Swoon*
Zone the room
Splitting the room into “zones” can have a huge impact on the space. Children’s rooms tend to be used for far more than just sleeping. They’re often a place to play, to do homework, read stories, catch up with friends. Let the room reflect its many uses by breaking it up into clear areas for each activity. A story corner, for example, is a great way to make use of dead space in the corner of the room. The IKEA Bekvam spice racks are an obvious choice for a kids’ bookcase – and at only £3 each you can afford to put a few up to house all those books.
Accessorise like a pro
If going mad with accessories in a kids’ room is wrong, then I don’t want to be right. From colourful bunting to hanging paper honeycomb garlands, colourful wooden toys on the mantelpiece and cutesy kitsch lights – anything goes as far as I’m concerned. Check out the edit from the Roost Shop, above, for some of my current favourites.
Decals are your friend
For an instant shot of colour and pattern, invest in a set of decals. Honestly, you won’t look back. We’ve got the Mamas & Papas alphabet decals in the Patternology range in our daughter’s story corner and I love how they add a bright pop of colour to the white wall. Plus, when she grows out of them they’ll be easy to take down again. Decals are another great way of helping to create a “zone” in the room too. I love how these arrow wall stickers (below) from Spin Collective, £20, add some interest behind the desk to turn a study area into something imaginative and fun.
