This bedroom belongs to Kira who is nine years old. She lives with her parents and two sisters in an old apartment block in Stockholm, Sweden. Kira shares her bedroom with her sister Masha who is six.
The girls’ bedroom was designed by their mum Mina, who is the founder of contemporary kids’ furniture brand IO Kids Design. The room features a vintage yellow IO Bunk Pod and is decorated with quirky details.
Mina’s advice for designing your child’s bedroom is not to worry too much about trends, and to actively involve children in creating their own spaces. If possible, buy furniture that can grow with children and be around for a long time.
