Playfulness and colour are all a part of a great-looking kid’s bedroom.
Making over your child’s bedroom is the one time you can loosen up a little. The creative team from interior specialist store Gorgi, Kirstin Bailey and Anna Church, has these inspirational tips;
Crisp colours provide the perfect backdrop for treasured accessories. Keep colours simple as heavily themed rooms can lose their appeal quite quickly. Think longevity and add interest with subtle colour combinations that can be enhanced with wall decals, framed prints or canvases.
Ask your child to help. If you give them time to talk, it is always surprising what ideas they have and how strong their opinions can be – even in the world of interiors.
If your children are young, observe what attracts them. What colours do they choose when drawing, for their clothing? Is there a colour or print theme? All these provide clues as to where to start and are ideal ways of achieving ‘buy in’ from your young individual.
The first point of focus in a bedroom is the bed and its coverings. Choose items that will grow, both in taste and size, with your child.
Choose products that combine classic with contemporary, as this will also work as your child becomes a teenager. Forward planning will ensure cost and time savings.
When choosing bed coverings, offer your child a choice of three or four cover options in various colours and or prints. The coverings will then give you a place to start in regards to your choice of Resene paint colour. Painted walls give parents the ability to change colours easily. Keep wallpapers simple – textured anaglypta-style or subtle two-colour print wallpapers offer versatility as your child develops.
