Interior Inspiration: Young n' Fun
This week, inspired by a customer's order of a giant cloud cushion for her son's room, we've rounded up some stylish, inspiring kids' spaces - including some fun design ideas you can try at your place!
Turn favourite items into art to be displayed - position bedtime books with their colourful covers facing outward, hang up a special piece of clothing (or an accessory, such as a hat or bag) on a wall, keep favourite toys on windowsills or shelves. We always love a bit of circus-style bunting too, and it's so easy to make.
Half the paint, twice the impact! A half-painted wall looks so great.
We'd love to see one of our grey bean bag chairs in this cool space.
How adorable is this room for a little explorer! Bean bag chairs are the perfect flexible seating, and what kidlet wouldn't love their very own hut or tent! Giant map decals are such a fun option for walls - but here, in a twist on that trend, they've pinned up overlapping maps - easy to find online and print out in large sizes at your local printer.
Chalkboard walls are such a fun, affordable decorating idea - you get a feature wall and a giant kid's art canvas all in one! Black always looks great, but chalkboard paint now comes in a whole raft of different vibrant colours. You can even use write on it yourself - create encouraging messages, or even house rules or chore reminders. Here's a tip: put your writing or pictures up at adult height, so they can't be scribbled over or rubbed off.
Wow - we love this minimalist space. The braces hanging over the end of the vintage iron bed are a nice touch. Here's an idea: what everyday items do you have that could be grouped and used as interior design objects? Soft grey (wall paint, rug, textured ottoman and paper pom-pom) ties the room together in a very restrained, chic way.
This house frame is an awesome idea! And relatively easy for the 'weekend handyman' to knock up.
You'll never regret buying a bed with built-in storage, especially in a small room! This twin bed set-up is also a very clever space-saving idea when you have two kids sharing one room.
