Clever Child’s Room Décor

This adorable and super-cheerfully decorated little girl’s room has great color, many things a child would love, and a fanciful attitude many Moms would go for. I certainly would.

So naturally, I took a closer look to see how it went together and realized that it is both amazingly simple and inexpensively done. The shell of the room is white; ceiling, walls, window trim and even the painted floor. High octane color is added through the use of bed, floor and wall textiles, a variety of mobiles, and a knockout Asian-style umbrella. Small, brightly colored area rugs tie the floor and ceiling together.

When I hear Moms discussing children’s rooms, the focus is most often on wall color – the opposite of this approach. The next impulse is to search for theme bedding – something also skipped here. The bed quilt is just generic patchwork mixed with fun sheets.

A turquoise map-of-the-world wall hanging is one of three main accent colors. Red and orange are the other two prominent accents used in rugs, the storage cabinet cover, mobiles and various accessories.  One really clever touch is the low blackboard which has been decorated with an elaborate chalk mural. That could easily be erased so a child can have a reusable canvas for her own artistic impulses.

Underneath it all, one smart Mommy who has the ability to change her child’s room without any heavy lifting. All that’s required is  switch out the textiles and accessories to age the room as she grows.
