We’ve probably said it before on here, children’s spaces need not be devoid of good design and décor; they can be quite discerning individuals too! A case in point is the boy’s bedroom as shown above. Harry’s room is decorated thoughtfully and tastefully in red, navy and grey. It’s furnished with design classics such as a red Anglepoise desk lamp and John Moncrieff’s balloon lights. A young person’s room that they won’t grow out of in a hurry!

We don’t often feature kids’ rooms in our Get their look series but this bright, colourful nursery deserves some attention. It’s cleverly decorated in such a way that it can develop as the child grows. There’s plenty of visual stimulus for a small child, but it’s never likely to look babyish as the years pass by. Simple tweeks and changes of accessories (and no doubt toys) is all it will need.
Their obvious challenge was to temper the industrial warehouse space with it’s large expanses of open brickwork, steel joists, hard wooden floor and high ceilings. They successfully achieved this with the large, soft pink area rug; the elephant print and graphic flash cards hung all the way up to meet the ceiling.
It’s a lovely, bright space with lots of natural light for various work or play activities – and looks easy to keep clean and uncluttered too.

A kid’s bedroom can often be a tricky thing to decorate. Once a young one grows out of the Disney princess/super hero/football-themed stage, their room will need a complete overhaul. The room pictured above retains a sense of fun, but certainly has a touch of sophistication too.
We love the combination of mustard and grey in the bedding and the sharp contrast of the mint pineapple bedside light. A vintage alphabet chart and felt garland add further decorative interest. And finally, the glimpse through the door shows that there is a lovely flow between spaces – the kid’s room not a sudden, jarring shock when compared to the rest of the house.
