Calm, colorful, clean kids’ room

In many households, no room is a bigger magnet for clutter than a child’s bedroom. Designers say parents are increasingly interested in managing that clutter effectively — and attractively.

“Everybody wants their house to look like a magazine, and that includes the kids’ rooms,” Los Angeles designer Betsy Burnham says.

But her advice to parents: Be realistic about how you and your kids actually live. Be honest and really ask, “‘Are we a tidy family? Are we too busy? Do we have too much stuff?’ It’s OK if you’re not a tidy household.

Choose a neutral color palette for the major design elements in the room, like furniture and wall color, she says.

Then you can add pops of color through rugs, bedding and pillows.

Burnham also likes the neutral palette for kids’ rooms, where, she says, it’s easy “to overdo it, and think that just because they’re kids they get a brighter palette.”

Another way to create a relaxing feel for kids: Leave open play space — “to maximize their creativity and their imaginative play,” Martin says.

“It’s important to have an area where they can actually play in the center of the room,” she adds.

Decorating the private quarters of our younger folk is now just as sophisticated an undertaking as the rest of the house – albeit slightly more playful! Anyone doubting this notion need only look so far as Pinterest for inspiration in spades. But, where to start? From the outset, unless you are looking to completely redecorate every few years until your spawn leave home, you should consider design elements that can help you transition from age to age without a complete redo.  The room will at various times serve as baby nursery and a play room for busy infants, and eventually become something enduring that can serve them from early school days through to teens.

Where you might be prone to a slightly conservative approach with the rest of the house, the kids’ rooms are the zone where you can take some risks. “Be adventurous!  There are some amazing wallpapers available which have a wonderful hand-painted feel. One of our favourites is the L’Envol by Manuel Canovas​”, O’Neil says.
