Gorgeous ideas to decorate your little one’s room

Aren’t the bedrooms of little ones a treasure to decorate? Your imagination can go wild, you can play with different colours and textures, and there’s just so much choice out there from cool kids’ brands and new small businesses, making decorating a dream.

What’s more, through the process you might even evoke a sense of nostalgia towards your own childhood.

So pop that nostalgic hat on, as here we share some lovely kids’ bedroom ideas for all ages.

For young boys

Who said throw cushions should be reserved for adults’ beds and lounges? Crushed, neutral linen teems with throw cushions and a timber bed frame in this simple yet stylish boy’s room designed by Three Birds Renovations.

It still retains playful elements – as any boy’s room should – with children’s books and hanging objects made into wall displays.

For young girls

The Hamptons-style theme in this home in Regentville, NSW, runs all through the house, including the three kids’ rooms – and it works so well. Baby pink tones are offset by a fresh white chest of drawers and a trending cane chair.

The carpet is soft for playtime and dark to ensure spills and stains are less noticed.

For gender-neutral

These days there’s no hard and fast rule that boys’ rooms should be blue and girls’ rooms should be pink. Be as creative as you like, and more importantly, decorate with items and artwork that your little one will love, whether you’re styling a gender-neutral nursery or a gender-neutral little girls’ room.

Top tip: Source illustrations and prints on social media of animals that they love or hunt out cool small businesses like Aussie brand Clocksicle, which designs different coloured – and silent! – clocks for kids’ room.

For shared bedrooms

Are your kiddies mad Disney fans? When it’s time for them to move into the same room, consider theming it around an animated colour scheme with bold reds and blues, like this Disney-inspired bedroom.

The bedroom in fact features in a four-bed home in Palm Springs, which was originally built for the cartoonist Walt Disney in 1962.

For pre-teens

Creating a sweet yet not-too-childish room that your school-age child can grow into is key for when they enter teenagehood.

We love the ocean-inspired theme in this room, mint green tones and statement table lamp. It retains the charm of a kids’ room yet offers so much sophistication, too. That artwork, for example…
