kids bedroom flooring ideas

Whenever you think of re-decorating your rooms or just giving them a refresh, how often do you think of doing something with the floors?  I know I tend to look at the walls or the furniture or even the decor because the floors somehow feel more fixed.  But actually thats not true.  You can change your floors really easily and sometimes that can be just the new look the room needs.

I’m loving the vinyl floor look which is no longer just for bathrooms.  Vinyl flooring has come such a long way with so many more finishes, colours and patterns available.   While I probably wouldn’t go for vinyl in every room in my home, I think they’re a great and fun option for kids rooms.  Apart from being durable, they’re so easy to clean (goodbye paint stains!) and they allow you to have fun.  Think stripes or checks or a sea of your favourite colour.  I’ve been looking at some creative ways of using vinyl in a kids room and here are 3 fun ways:

creative wall painting ideas

If you’re a minimalist like me you’ll understand my love for all white walls peppered with black and white art. That’s the kind of look I’m planning for most of our home except Anya’s room.  I don’t think any kid would chose a monochrome colour scheme for their room.  When chatting to Anya about possible colours for her room, she came up with suggestions of an orange and yellow room!  A bit too much for a minimalist like me but I started thinking about how we could use a splash of paint somewhere to add a bit of colour.

I went looking for some creative wall painting ideas and here are some really fun ways to add a splash of colour to a kids bedroom or even your own room.  You can go big or small, dark or light but the best part is you can transform the room in a couple of hours with no more than a tin of paint and a brush:

My kids bedroom wish list

September 10, 2015

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you’ll know that we’ve had a huge house renovation project on for months.  Thankfully the builders have left and now it’s our turn to decorate and furnish.  This is the really exciting bit and I can’t wait to get started.  My first project is going to be Anya’s room for which I have been gathering ideas and inspiration for ages. I’ve started by putting together a mood board and thought I would share it here too.

For Anya’s room, I want to create a space that is whimsical and dreamy, a space where she won’t just sleep but will enjoy spending time in.  The one thing I want to try and manage without is modular furniture simply because I don’t want too many hard lines but instead I want soft shapes, flowy fabrics and different textures that will hopefully make it feel a little magical.  With those thoughts in my mind I’ve been looking around for furniture too.  The bed will be the biggest piece of furniture in the room so I want to make sure that it compliments the whole look I am going for.  I love the look of the kids bed I’ve chosen for the mood board because of the soft curves and circle details that will compliment the rest of the room.  It’s simple and stylish and won’t end up taking over the room which is exactly what I want.  And as for the colours, I can’t seem to move away from grey, dirty pink and white so that’s what it’s going to be!

I used to create kids bedroom mood board’s thinking one day I want to do up a real room and now I have my chance.  So this is my wish list so far – what do you think?  Do you like the look?

Here’s where you’ll find all the stuff I’ve gathered:

"toddler kids bed with guard"

I’m loving this new toddler bed by Oeuf NYC.   Simple, minimal, and effortlessly stylish, this toddler bed is also available in a dark chocolate colour but the natural wood is my favourite.   Moving a child from a cot to a ‘big kid bed’ is one of the many milestones of going from babyhood to toddlerhood and I can’t think of a cooler bed to do it in! 

"toddler bed with removable saftey rail"

Oeuf’s Perch toddler bed comes with a removable safety rail so once your child outgrows the bed, it can be used as a mini sofa.  Design that grows with your child is always a winner for me.

P.S.  How cute is that bird in boots poster?

"reading corners for kids"

Now that Anya is learning to read, I am thinking about ways to encourage this.  One of the things I want to do soon is create a cosy little reading corner in her room.  A reading corner will probably encourage most kids to read a bit more if it’s a snug little space and if their books are easily accessible.  It doesn’t have to be very big, in fact I think the smaller and cosier, the better.

There are loads of different ways of doing this but one of my favourites is creating a little hideout with a teepee or a tent. The teepee could even be placed in a corner of another room like the living room.  Another easy idea is a simple mattress or some floor cushions placed in one corner of the room surrounded by bookshelves or even book-filled wooden crates on the floor.  I also like the idea of having a statement lamp to add a bit of fun to the space like that adorable miffy lamp.  There are lots of ways to make a reading corner really special and inviting.  The above are four spaces I really liked and found inspiring so hopefully they will inspire you too.
