Style edit: How to create a kids’ room to inspire and delight

Kids’ bedrooms often present a challenge for interior enthusiasts: how to achieve the right balance of fun and elegance and create a space that everyone loves to be in. Be inspired by our playful fabric and wallpaper collections, and discover ways to make your child’s bedroom an absolute joy for children and adults alike. Create the perfect backdrop for imaginative play by choosing monochrome motifs from Scandinavian designers or build your child a fantastical world of their very own with bold mural pieces that will transport them far from the four walls of their room.



There are any number of ways to create an enchanting child’s room, without compromising on style – starting with a Scandinavian influence and plenty of whimsical detail. Borastapeter’s Scandinavian Designers Mini collection and Villa Nova’s Picturebook collections feature wallpapers that will transform any nursery, playroom or bedroom into a wonderland, with fairy tale illustrations, tropical jungles, hot air balloons and vibrant cityscapes. Complete the room with a matching Picturebook rug for a truly immersive experience.



Kids room storage is absolutely key if you’re looking to avoid too much clutter, so make sure you are using all of the space wisely. Add shelving to a recess or awkward corner and add an upholstered screen curtain in one of our printed fabrics to make it quick and easy to tidy mess away. Of course, curtains are an important part of any kids room design – especially for light sleepers and long summer nights – but there are other, more imaginative ways to use fabric in your child’s room, too. Attach with a hoop to the ceiling to create a secret hideaway, or use swathes to make a bed canopy. Matching or complementary bedclothes, beanbags and cushions will help to create a fun, but cohesive space.



Every parent wants their child to have a bedroom that makes them feel safe, inspired and stimulated, so why not get them involved in the design process? You can have great fun picking out papers and fabrics, ordering samples to create a moodboard, coming up with a colour scheme and deciding what goes where. Make your kids bedroom design as unique and captivating as they are with our fabulous collection and design tips.
