Decorating for kids

From train sets to blackboard panels to wall art, kid’s rooms are great to go wild with quirky creative inclusions.

Some of the top international trends for kid’s rooms include muted colours and eclectic hues. For a muted colour theme stick to greys, olives, soft lilacs, pinks and oranges, and pair with antique whites or creams. To embrace an eclectic look, keep the base palette neutral and add splashes of colour in pillows, throws, toys or wall hangings.

When designing a kid’s room, pick items that will withstand the robust nature of childhood and create a functional area for play, learning and rest. Incorporate durable wooden features including bed frames, shelving, chairs and bookcases. Wooden features last and tie together classic and contemporary looks. To reduce clutter, choose smart and attractive storage options that complement your colour palette.
