DEC­O­RAT­ING A CHILD’S ROOM WITH STYLE AND LONGEVITY IN MIND EN­SURES A BEAU­TI­FUL, ADAPT­ABLE SPACE

Home Beautiful - - CONTENTS - WORDS VERA KLEIN

TIME­LESS COLOUR PAL­ETTES, ver­sa­tile fur­ni­ture and clever stor­age are the holy trin­ity be­hind cre­at­ing a de­light­ful chil­dren’s room that will span the years. Fac­tor in a sense of fun, plus some easy and af­ford­able up­dates, and you’re set. Here, we’ve gath­ered in­spi­ra­tional ideas for a long-last­ing look that both par­ents and their off­spring will love.

A tem­po­rary wall­pa­per fea­ture can bring life to a room and, with to­day’s range of paste-the-wall pa­pers, is an easy up­date as chil­dren ma­ture. Wall mu­rals and re­mov­able de­cals are also great to turn a sim­ple room into some­thing mag­i­cal – they can spark con­ver­sa­tions or games, and even be built into bed­time sto­ries.
