I’ve been very busy working on some lovely projects these past few weeks, so I haven’t been posting as often as I’d like. I did find some time however to write a piece with kids room design tips for my friend Alex over at Eden Private Staff. Hop on over if you’d like to read seven tips to create a stylish room for your child.
PS.: Spot a trend in the images above? Green is hot news again for kids rooms – one of my favourite colours for nurseries and children’s rooms, and so right for the spring weather we’ve been having of late!
This cool boy’s bedroom belongs to Floor who is six years old. He lives with his mum, sister and brother in a lovely and light new-built house in Zutphen, The Netherlands. Puk the cat, Daan the dog and Chocolat the rabbit also share the house with them.
Floor’s room was decorated by his mum Carla, who is the owner of the wonderful Met Melk & Suiker blog and a self-confessed Pinterest and Instagram addict. Carla’s blog feels beautifully serene with lots of interiors inspiration, unusual angles and peeks into her family’s life. Having run an online kids’ and home accessories store for 2 years, she currently works part-time in HR.
Carla’s best interior design advice for kids’ rooms is to combine a calm base with original accessories and let the room develop from there – a room needs to grow. Because of her interest in interiors and styling, she’s always changing things around at home, including in her children’s bedrooms. She suggests looking for inspiration on Pinterest and in magazines to create a moodboard with your child.
