91 is pinning… kids decor

Save & share

Whether it’s a child’s bedroom, playroom or a corner of your living room given over to the kids, children’s decor does not have to be garish and unstylish. Mixing grown up elements with playful accessories is the perfect way to create a look that is fun for your child but will grow with them AND look on trend. For example, you don’t need to opt for a wallpaper targeted at kids, a floral or graphic design looks great mixed with colourful illustrated posters and brightly painted vintage furniture.

A patterned ‘grown up’ rug, mixed with childlike motifs works well. Try to avoid cartoon character bedding and instead look out for fun patterns in fabric shops or vintage stores – or check out contemporary designs from brands like Ferm Living, Olli Ella or Cerise Sur La Gateau.

For the walls, look out for vintage children’s illustration and school charts; old maps also look great in kids spaces. Utilise their existing book collection and pick out those with the most beautiful covers to display on picture ledges. Practical and stylish! Think about making mini versions of adult furniture, like this clothes rail above. Details like adding washi tape edging and colourful hangers add a childlike element. 

Pop over to our children’s room Pinterest board for lots more inspiration – kids spaces should be one of the most fun to design and decorate, so great creative and enjoy connecting with your inner (stylish!) child! 🙂
