Here is the last post for my “how to spruce up your kids room” series. I’ll be ending the series by talking about textiles, rugs and furniture today.
Cushions & Bed Linens
When decorating your kids room, do not neglect textiles. Whether you choose to opt for pastel colours or colourful linen with funny or trendy designs, bed linens and cushions are key deco elements of the room. You also want to make sure you are building the perfect sleeping nest for your child. Choose soft and comfortable cotton fabric, and decorate the bed with cushions and cuddly toys to create a cosy nest for your kids.
You may want to choose an adjustable bed so your kid can continue to use it as he grows up. Alternatively, you can also choose a simple bed and add a headboard. It’s an original (and easy) way to customise your kid’s bed. You can even do it yourself with wallpaper, fabric, masking tape, and so on.
Here are a few images I spotted on Pinterest:
Create a reading corner (or a mini hut)
Start building your corner by choosing an original/colourful chair or by spreading different types of cushions on a rug. Another way to go about this would be to build a mini-hut or teepee. The whole idea is to create a delimitated space that will hopefully turn into your kid’s favourite place in the house. What could be better than a corner where your kids can drift off in delightful reverie, or read a book and let their imagination run wild!
