Beautiful design and interior trends for children

If you are an avid pinner or reader of kids design blogs you would probably have seen your share of monochrome interior design for kids, with cool posters, rabbit night lamps and teepee’s. But kids interior is so much more than that! Here is our round up of some truly beautiful and fun kids rooms.

The house bed as seen below is hugely popular and would be fairly easy to make. There’s a selection of them in this post at but this one is particular nice with storage.

Besides the bed, what does kids need in their room? A desk is usually not required as it’s much better to have them doing their homework, the art and crafts at the kitchen table, where you are able to help out. But they’ll need a wardrobe for clothing, bookshelf for lots of books and storage for toys, for the thousands of lego bricks you don’t want to step on…

And, if there’s space… they’d love a play tent and a play kitchen!

So for style, go personal! Don’t play it too safe. If they like yellow – yellow it is! This bold and gender neutral kids room, with dark wooden floors and bright yellow wardrobe, matching the the retro wallpaper is just amazing. And we love the vintage school desk and chair too.

The most interesting bit here is not the abundance of pastels, but the IKEA hack going on. There’s several websites (easily found with a quick google search) sharing ideas on how you can transform the Swedish kids storage solutions and furniture into personal and fun design for your child’s room.

Reuse the art and furniture from your own childhood. Kids love bright colours and retro design.

One of my favourite picks in this round up – love the two coloured wall, the teak vintage furniture that actually works with the Ikea bed – and the map. I’d guess there’s a little explorer living here!

Another twist is to keep all things muted, with a hint of blush pink and gold. A soothing and stress fri environment for sweet dreams.

And then, my absolute favourite, this shared room for siblings, for two little globetrotters. All white and black with the beautiful muted world map painted on the wall, love the plant (make sure no plant is poisonous before adding them to a kids room!) and exotic, slightly grown up rug.

Then this! A bit too dark for my taste, but this is infact very similar to the solution we have in Little A’s bedroom. She has a tiny room, and to make the most out of it, my husband has build a cabin bed with a play area and shelves underneath for toy storage. I always wanted the bird lamp. Sadly it’s not in the affordable range…

Before I let you go… A must see; baby room in all white, with a mix of textiles and prints to add warmth and personality. And the art poster, of the fox cub. But any baby animal would do. So sweet!
