Don’t be afraid to experiment with pattern and print – a child’s room is a good place to try out a bolder look than you might have elsewhere in the house. It will inject life into a room, and a fun theme will inspire a sense of adventure in your little explorer. When it comes to decorating children’s bedrooms, the possibilities are endless. This is a space where you can have a little fun, whether that’s in the form of bold patterned rugs, wild wallpapers, eye-catching murals, painted ceilings and 3D wall art – such as papier-mâché animal busts.  Or try a gallery or chalkboard wall for their own creations, floor-to-ceiling open shelving to display their favourite things, even a hidden den under the bed or behind wardrobe doors. Because when it comes to kids’ rooms, you can throw out the rule book. But be warned, children tend to change their minds easily (and don’t get us started on teenagers), so in general it’s best to stick to fairly neutral furniture and then inject the fun via the walls, rugs, bedding and accessories. These accents can be layered and edited over time to grow with the child. Or you could keep things simple by just revamping the furniture. Paint them your kids...
