Decorating with Natural Wood

One of the most beautiful materials to use in a kids room is natural wood. Wood in all it’s raw, naked, pale glory.

I especially like natural wood for a kids room because there is something so innocent and real about it, much like children themselves. Also no matter how small a room is, natural wood just works because it has such a light and airy feel and can make a small space look bigger. You can use lots...

These twinkly little lights don’t cost much at all and can so easily transform a kids room without any effort. There are lots of ways to add fairy lights — from a straightforward chain of lights to something a bit more creative. But no matter...

Bright, White and Minimal Kids Rooms

There is something so calming and beautiful about a minimal, bright, white, clutter free kids room. Much like our adult bedrooms can be a place to escape to, away from the mess and chaos of everyday life, so too, a kids bedroom can be a place of calm and escape. Minimal doesn’t mean boring or cold. As you’ll see from the rooms below, they’re all charming, warm and anything but boring. Minimal simply means not filling every bit of space you have, keeping the colours in similar tones and mostly having closed storage. If you are already a fan...

Moodboard: Monochrome with a splash of soft blue

One of my favourite colour schemes for a kids room is black and white. Black and white never goes out of fashion, it grows with your kids and of course it looks very cool. I like to use monochromes as the base colour palette and then layer on a pop of colour with decorations. This not only helps to soften the look but if you ever tire of your accent colour, you can easily replace the decorations and change the accent colour. I’ve put together a moodboard to inspire you. In this moodboard, I’ve added a splash of soft...
