Nursery with storage unit seat

Nursery with storage unit seat

Turn a simple storage unit into soft seating by adding a comfortable bench pad and a cluster of cushions. This neutral scheme is beautifully and practically decorated so that it can be easily adapted as the child grows or if the room takes on another use in future. Accessories, such as the cushions, rug and gorgeous elephant toys are what give it its feel as a nursery, rather than fixed parts of the scheme. We love the combination of stripes and other patterns in a mix of blue and pink, too.

Girl's bedroom with pink walls

Girl’s bedroom with pink painted walls

Paint the walls pink for a classic approach to decorating a girl’s bedroom. Neutral furniture keeps the look simple and unfussy, and will be suitable even if the colour scheme changes further down the line. A predominantly white duvet is teamed with bright pink prints, illustrating the fun you can have with a mishmash of patterns as long as the colours tone.

Cool boys' bedroom with skateboard theme

Children’s bedroom with quirky feature wall

Give your child the chance to think about how he or she would like to decorate the room – they have to sleep there after all. Here the owners worked with their son to create a room he loves. The cool skateboard wallpaper will still be cool when he’s grown up, and the more adult design touches, including the limewashed floor and simple accessories will ensure that nothing dates too quickly.

Cosy child’s bedroom with colourful accessories

The contemporary scheme of this welcoming nursery steers clear of traditional colours and would work equally well for a boy or girl. On-trend grey-toned walls continue the colour scheme of the rest of the house and provide a warm backdrop for the white chest of drawers and wicker chair. Colourful toys and accessories bring unique style and character to the room, while the family heirloom standard lamp adds a vintage twist.

Modern twin children's room with star details

Modern twin children’s room with star details

Traditional furniture and accessories, such as the twin beds and super-tall upholstered headboards, provide a structured base for this cool, calm kids room. Modern accessories are key to the youthful look of this bedroom; a bold rug, matching bookshelves that act as a room divider, monogrammed elements and handy storage are all easy to update as the children who live here get older.

Decorating a nursery or child’s room with a contemporary wallpaper not only gives it an eye-catching edge, but saves you from having to redecorate when your little one grows out of the room. Using a bold geometric wallpaper like this one keeps an element of fun in the room while being versatile enough to transform into a home office or storage space.

Play room corner with toy kitchen and yellow tree-print wallpaper

Blend children’s toys into the rest of your decorating scheme with a spot of clever colour co-ordination. This wooden toy kitchen becomes a design statement in itself when set against the matching yellow print of the wallpaper. Placing an eye-catching wallpaper or piece of furniture at the end of a long, narrow room is a great way to make a feature of an otherwise overlooked space.
