Decorating a child’s room can be extremely fun, for both kids and parents. The idea is to do it together. What do children like? That’s the key. They like a LOT of things. Here are a few ideas to zing up your little one’s room.
Color inspiration can come from sweet confections. How often have you looked at Jelly beans and candy sticks and loved their twirling transparent glazes. Does your princess likes candied flowers? Or does you son drool over dishy cupcakes? Just throwing around some happy looking cushions made up of these favorite things is a brilliant way to brighten up the room.
Big and Bright
The whole idea of taking cues from ‘grown -up ‘ interiors and transforming them into ideas for kids is something interesting to explore.
Don’t throw out anything. Repurpose it for the kids with joy. Think of a formal cabinet you might be waiting to change. Give it a new life. Splash some bright orange paint on it, fill it with even brighter tit-bits and we have a masterpiece in the room. The funky stuffed animal heads are a genius play on the original ‘Hunter’s Trophies’, usually found in a stuffy den. This concept can be applied to almost anything, giving us so many possibilities.
Playschool at Home
Being able to draw on the wall is a dream come true for every child. Make the interiors as fun as interactive toys. Having a wall blackboard as a part of the room is a perfect interactive idea without being obtrusive. The child can go crazy with chalk every day. It also serves its purpose as a regular wall, when you station a desk right beside it. Hang up a clock, put up some paintings, and mix it up with your child’s chalk illustrations thrown in. Real art corner!
Having fun with letters. They can be a very interactive and dynamic decorative element. Leave them on a desk, place them on a wall, hang them from the ceiling. They can be wooden, metal, paper, card, clay, anything. Use them to decorate, change what kids can say every day. Never be at a loss for words! Use them as paperweights, as bookends, let them be the last word.
Being young is about never letting the child inside grow up. And having children allows you to be a kid with them again. Lets not think of ourselves as parents. Take a deep dive into the mind of a child. You can turn to rhyme for no reason.
