Ten tips for decorating children’s rooms

We were recently asked by Caos Magazine to create a list of tips for decorating children’s rooms… and while we certainly aren’t experts, we felt we had a few good ideas up our sleeves. Check out our ten tips here. And please feel free to leave us comments with any other good tips we may have forgotten!

I think you so right on your tips for decorating a child room. I would do exactly the same. So pleased that the London map is hanging in your daughter’s bedroom!

I love Caos Magazine! I wanted to go to the minidisco for kids they organize, hopefully I can go next year! As for your tips, I love the last point, yes to yellow or lions or other ideas they may have!

Thanks for the tips! They are beautifully illustrated. It makes me want to re decorate my children’s bedrooms straight away.
I totally agree with the lighting part! I think it’s one of the most important thing in a room (specially when it’s dark at 4 pm !). I am a big fan of Heico rabbit, mushroom, duck and fawn lamps by Heico. Not only their design is adorable but they cast a wonderful warm glow and can be used as night lights.

I like shelving for kids that displays the (cutest) covers, instead of just a book’s side and I agree that clothes, esp dresses are often too sweet for hiding! I’m a big fan of that Bunny Lamp. I would only add that I think wall decals are super, but custom art can make a room really special, too :)
