When I began Benji"s room, it was all about getting to know him. Benji has a twin brother so I wanted to make sure when designing their rooms that their different personalities were expressed. I soon found out that Benji"s favourite color was blue, so blue was a must. I also found out that Benji was interested in travel, the world, and had a very inquisitive mind. These two details were then the theme for my design. I used a large blue rug so that blue was prominent in his room but I didn"t want it to be dark and dreary so I chose a yellow to lift the blue and then used accents of both blue and yellow around the room. To inspire his travel goals, I added a world map on one wall and commissioned a small hand painted compass mural on another wall. I love this space as it"s light, bright, stylish and still reflects Benji"s fun, adventurous personality.
Kids are a great joy of family life, but one thing that can be difficult is decorating a bedroom of someone that grows so quickly before your eyes! I"m really big on gender neutral design and looking at this room, you wouldn"t be able to tell whether or not it belonged to a girl or a boy. It"s so bright and natural with bits of contemporary and Scandinavian design. Little elements like the blackboard, bean bags and lights are used to give the room a warm feeling even though the design is really simple. I love where the bed is placed in the corner by a large window too. My top tip for decorating kids bedrooms is to maximise storage and to keep things simple, kids change their mind and get bored of a lot of things very quickly, we"ve all been there!
Having one centralized space for all of your storage pieces is also a great option in a small space. A storage rack with multiple bins and shelves is ideal for a small space. With bins of varying sizes, you can store toys of varying sizes without having to worry about them getting lost! Since the storage bins are removable, you can switch them around based on your child"s needs. And since the shelf itself isn"t huge, you can tuck it into a corner to make a play area. This is also great if you"re trying to maximize closet storage as well — you could easily fill it with clothes and accessories instead of toys.
