It is no surprise that children spend a lot of time in their bedroom. Used for sleeping, playing and working, it follows that their space should reflect their little personalities. Still, as Yvadney Davis told The LuxPad in her guest post, it is easy to get lost in the world of children’s interiors. We asked 27 experts to showcase their favourite children’s bedroom and to help us recreate the look at home.

When it comes to children’s decor, my eye is always drawn to white, airy rooms with playful details to add warmth and colour. A gender-neutral nursery is a perfect example of this, with a sweet ladybug bedding and special wooden toys out on display. There’s space to play unrestricted, with stylish storage boxes to tidy away any clutter afterwards. It is also a room that can easily grow in years to come. Whilst monochrome is the trend of the moment, it can be surprisingly tricky to get right. The key is to find a balance and you can do this by adding in more soft tones and textures such as wooden accents, a fun wallpaper or contrasting prints. Not only does it make the space more interesting, but it does not restrict you to one overly coordinated look. Have fun with styling and sourcing your key pieces and it will shine through in your child’s room!
Kids are a great joy of family life, but one thing that can be difficult is decorating a bedroom of someone that grows so quickly before your eyes! I am big on gender neutral design and looking at this room, you would not be able to tell whether it belonged to a girl or a boy. It is so bright and natural with bits of contemporary and Scandinavian design. Little elements like the blackboard, bean bags and lights are used to give the room a warm feeling even though the design is simple. I love where the bed is placed in the corner by a large window too. My top tip for decorating kids’ bedrooms is to maximise storage and to keep things simple, kids change their mind and get bored of a lot of things very quickly. If you’re looking for a new bed, try this bunk bed from Domayne. It is perfect for your children’s friends when they come over.
A school uniform chair would be a truly special feature for any child or teenager’s room – uniform, sports kit, brownies, cubs, a favourite party dress, any outfit can become an eye-catching piece of furniture with a little imagination. Here, I used a digital fabric design and combined it onto my favourite style of armchair. This would work equally well on any style of chair, sofa or interior furnishing! I think this is a wonderfully quirky design that features a fabulous twist on a special part of your child or teenager’s life, making sure that the memories of their happiest years live on forever… Custom-designed chairs, lampshades, cushions and wallpaper designs are a fantastic addition to any child’s bedroom and provide high quality, extremely comfortable pieces that will make your bedroom design truly unique and memorable.
