How to Decorate a Kid’s Room

Whilst dreaming up a scheme for your little one’s room, release your inner child and be enchanted by the transformative power of print and colour. From fairy-tale landscapes with dragons and dinosaurs, to blooming florals, mermaids and animals, immerse your child in a magical world that’s sure to ignite their imagination.

Wonder Walls

A child’s bedroom is a space where you can really let your (and their) imagination run free. This is a place of their own, where they will play, learn and grow, and an opportunity for them to stamp their personality on your home, so be adventurous and get creative with pattern and colour.

Have a wild child? Wallpaper like our DINOSAURIA dinosaur print, fantastical and beastly TREMATONIA or the charming HACKNEY EMPIRE will fit the brief when paired with brightly hued paints.

If your kid is more of the flower power persuasion, then a riot of HOLLYHOCKS or the storybook English florals of VOYSEY’S GARDEN paired with vibrant VERBENA red or VIOLET will ensure their room will bloom. Perhaps they’d like to take a trip through the looking glass with our ALICE IN WONDERLAND print? The world is their oyster! 

To create the perfect print playground, match curtains and bedding to the wallpaper, or opt for a contrasting pattern. If you want the walls to be the main event, choose fabrics in one of the accent colours from the print, which will make the room feel cohesive and intentional.

While bright colours are known to be stimulating for young children, if yours prefers a more pared back aesthetic, or is perhaps at an age where they want something more grown up, our chalky matte paints in neutrals and pastel greens, blues and pinks might be the way to go. And for a subtle pop of pattern, the sky’s the limit with our cloud print STRATUS; the perfect wallpaper for an accent ceiling.

Top Tip: 

For a pop of print or colour, create a half wall by wallpapering up to the dado rail,
make a feature wall or paint a fireplace and architectural details in a contrasting shade to the walls.

The Finishing Touch

If your little one has sensory issues, hanging curtains around the bed can be a great way to create a safe space for when they feel overstimulated. Choose from fantasy prints, florals, stripes or plain fabrics in sumptuous velvets, or cool cotton-linens if they’re sensitive to texture. You can also use curtains to create a theatre stage, a dressing up area or secret den, the possibilities are endless!

Lighting and cushions are a great way to accessorise the room; you could create a little reading nook where they can curl up with their favourite stories.

Balancing playfulness with practicality, coat existing furniture in eggshell paint to compliment the decoration, or in a contrasting colour to create an accent. Even better, give books and clothes the royal treatment with our CASTLE bookcase and wardrobe, handcrafted by Titchmarsh & Goodwin.

There’s nothing better than the wonder of being a child, and with whimsical and joyful decor, you can keep that magic going a little longer.

Top Tip: 

Decorating any room is an investment, so we recommend choosing the biggest bed that is
practical, that way the bedroom will grow with your child. It’s also great to get them involved,
through picking out their favourite prints and colours, making fabric notice
boards or creating their own art that can be hung in their new room.
