We love decorating children’s rooms, as they can be great fun but they do need careful planning to ensure the scheme has flexibility to grow with the child and won’t date too quickly. These photos are from a lovely project that we really enjoying working on for a little girl’s bedroom and demonstrate how to design an inviting space which keeps both parents and children happy.

With this project we started by creating a soft and pretty backdrop with hand-painted stripes in soft tones. We then added colour and interest through accessories such as these silver letters and fairy lights which can easily be updated at a later date if required.

Children like to collect lots of bits and pieces so we incorporated a desk and lots of storage in this scheme to keep everything neat and tidy. The open storage above the desk ensures that toys and books are still easily accessible and visible but we hung a swedish blind over the tall shelving unit on the right which can be rolled down to hide the shelving if it gets too messy!

The swedish blind at the window adds a bright splash of colour and is a clean, pretty style for a child’s room. Lack of space around the window meant that a roman blind or traditional curtains wouldn’t easily fit but this style is simple and compact. It also looks pretty when half open or closed as it rolls up from the bottom rather than the top.

We created a pinboard above the desk in a fresh green stripe to store favourite photos, cards and notes so there are still lots of personal items on display but focused in one area rather than taking up lots of wall space. An inviting desk area also creates an appealing place to study and will, hopefully, encourage homework!

The original pine bedframe was quite dark, so we gave it a fresh coat of white paint to keep the scheme fresh and bright. Overall our aim with this room was to create a pretty and appealing haven for many years to come.
