Use colour and clever picks to create a calm, curated space in your kids bedrooms
1 Décor details
When it comes to kids’ bedrooms, keeping to a theme is all in the details. For example, if bunnies are the animal of the moment, think of all of the fun decorative touches you can introduce. Extra points if they’re functional as well as trendy, like this nightlight from Søstrene Grene.

2 Basic bits
Well made Investment pieces make sense. The Harrison Toddler Bed, €POA, from Irish brand Bunny and Clyde is an ideal starter bed, crafted from solid ash. As your child grows, it becomes a place to sit and read. Likewise, the Serpentine chair, €POA, from Ligne Roset, is playful enough for a child’s room, but it will grow with the space.
3 Put it in neutral
We know it’s tempting to default to blue or pink. But, if the standard neutral of yellow is too saccharine for you, grey is a great foil for a kid’s bedroom. Bonus – those unavoidable grubby marks are hidden, stylishly.

4 Brilliant bedding
As the bed is most-likely the focal point of the room, add the easiest colour pop with bright bed linen. Buying a few sets will let you transform the space quickly and affordably whenever you fancy a change. We love these sets from Zara Home, from €22.99.
5 U store it
What’s the one thing that causes headache in a child’s bedroom? Messy toys. This mobile basket, €59, from Barn could be the answer. Store clutter cutely while giving your little one easy access. We call that a win-win.
