Muted interiors and natural accents are the most prevalent trends in children’s interiors for 2017 . My two boys are 6 and 3, and will be sharing a bedroom for a few years to come, so I wanted to create a scheme that will grow with them, and will be playful as well as relaxing and calm as the majority of their time in the room will be at bedtime as we have a small playroom for toys and chaos elsewhere in the house.
The scheme has largely been inspired by the boy’s love of the natural world, and colour inspiration from a Ferm Living fabric Spear print storage bag which we already have at home.
I have sourced muted green linen bedding (a sale find from H+M) and I’ve purchased a textured quilt eiderdown to cosy things up from Camomile London. The beds will be completed with a couple of teal and blue grey cushions by Numero 74 which will add depth of colour.
I plan to keep the walls very light and neutral in a flat, white matt colour, and add wall art in clusters- I’ve chosen prints from Emily Winfield Martin on Etsy (from the USA so bear in mind you’ll have to pay customs fee when it arrives in the UK) whom I adore, and an animal print by Scandinavian brand Fashionell which you can find at Oskoe Living in the U.K . I’ve treat them to another beautiful embroidery from Aro for Kids which are beautifully handmade in Spain. Our white ash string shelves will be hung so that the boys can display their treasures.
I don’t want the whole scheme to reflect just one colour, so prints, wall art and bunting are an easy way to create a broader, more flexible pallete across the room. By keeping furniture light wood, and floor covering neutral, it should be a flexible space that can be regularly updated for them both for years to come.
