Very excited that Charlotte’s pretty grey bedroom was included in this month’s children’s interior design feature for Elle Decor India! Her little reading nook was shown alongside a brilliantly styled shoot focussing on natural materials in kids’ rooms.

Edda’s room was designed by her mum Elin who is a professional interior stylist. You can admire Elin’s style over on her Instagram feed @studioelwa, where she shares photos of her beautiful home and both her daughters’ bedrooms. Edda’s room jumped out at me because the wonderful composition of vintage and modern design, soft colours and quirky, often handmade details.
Elin’s advice for designing children’s rooms is to consider above all what your child’s interests and needs are, what they are playing with and how they play. Perhaps they don’t need a large table or desk that takes up a lot of space, if they always play on the floor or at the kitchen table. It should be easy for them to find their toys and to play, and preferably to clean up after themselves. In Edda’s room, for example, her kitchen and little dining area occupy 1/4 of the room, since that’s what she plays with the most. Also her puzzels, books and dolls are easy for her to reach and play with, since that is what she loves the most.
