Many people feel daunted by the prospect of transiting their child’s bedroom as they grow and develop, however in the busy pace of our young people’s lives it is important to reflect on what they need from their bedroom.
In 2021 your child needs a nurturing space that can perform as a playroom, place of study and a bedroom all at once. As your child grows, they will use their bedroom more often so making it feel a little bit grown up and personal to them is also essential.
In this bedroom space the colour scheme has been adapted from the whimsical print ‘Summer Confetti’ available at Freedom referencing lazy summer days by the beach. The colours selected for the room not only tie all the elements together but also help to relax and unwind.
The vibrant orange/rust Adelle King Single bed from Harvey Norman brings energy to the space and links beautifully with the bedroom lamps available at Lightstyle. We have had fun with the shapes, colours and textures of the scatter cushions from Freedom and linen from Adairs to elevate the space and bring a sense of youthfulness.
Faux plants like this one pictured from James Lane are always a great way to bring the outside in without having to worry about watering! The incorporation of faux plants and wood elements can really make the colours in your room pop. The natural wood elements in the room such as the bookcase from Oz Design Furniture, the side table from Adairs and white wicker ottoman and stool from Shack have the ability to transform the mind and soul and are a terrific choice for a tweens bedroom as they are both durable and beautiful. The streamline desk from Oz Design Furniture is a focal point of the bedroom as are the round scatter rugs from Coppola Home.
