Kid’s Bedrooms Bold Christmas
A Bold Bold Christmas for your kid’s room
Interior Stylist, Fi Campos, shares her
festive styling advice for kid’s bedrooms
Christmas comes but once a year and this year our children need all the joy we can possibly bring them. Enter interior stylist Fi Campos who shares how to bring all the fun, playfulness and colour into our children’s bedrooms, making 2020 the best one yet.
I’m an avid believer in bold and beautiful interior schemes for children, and to me, Christmas is just the perfect time of year to indulge in a little colourful creativity.
If you’re also a lover of all things merry and bright, read on for some small scale, easy-to-implement projects that can turn your little one’s space into a fabulously festive kingdom in minutes.
First up: For the ultimate in trend led Christmas tropical vibes, pick a palette of hot pink, mustard, teal and lime and have fun with texture and shapes. A strong navy wall creates a striking contrast to all the colour and makes it feel a little more grown up.
The aim of the game with this look is to create a riot of colourful juxtapositions, and it’s perfect if you fancy a bit of DIY styling too, with references to arts and craft at the helm. – Create an alternative wall-mounted Christmas tree using a cactus wire memo board like this one, check out ebay for one similar. Add lights, baubles, and anything else you fancy for a quick and easy wall update!
For an alternative to bunting, create a string of pom poms like this garland by The Little Boys Room.
Pick up cute little felt decorations, or even make your own woollen trinkets, and add them to the string to create decor that’s bespoke to your family.
For a tree option that’s straight out of the box, this cute Pom Pom tree by Chi Chi Moi is a fabulous modern alternative and totally ties in with the fun Peruvian theme.
For a finishing touch that’s certainly not just for Christmas, try this bohemian llama rug by The Little Boys Room:
A striking way of injecting seasonality into their rooms is by creating original wall art.
For a more tonal Christmas idea, why not try making your own Scandi style tree scape wall mural?
Simply paint some lining paper in a variety of greens and blues, and then once it’s dry, cut out tree shapes et voila; a ready-made design ready to paste!
For a shop bought alternative, try a Christmas tree wall sticker like this one by Chameleon Wall Art.
This is a great double whammy as it creates a fun filled Christmas art project for the little ones, as well as sprucing up any bare walls.
If the great outdoors is their thing, this super cute Fir Tree cushion by indie brand Petit Mushyup is the ideal solution for understated festive touches. Layer with teal and emerald cushions to really make it pop.
It’s no secret that orange has been one of this year’s biggest interior colour trends, and it makes a great alternative to the more classic berry red for festive updates. If you’re the daring type, paint a whole wall with it, pair with soft grey furniture, and tone down with blush, cream and gold for added dreaminess.
This gorgeous woodland themed brush cotton duvet set by The Linen Store is super soft and gives a subtle nod to Christmas, whilst being totally suitable for use all year round.
Another simple way of updating a room with some festive fun is by adding an advent calendar.
This forest scene by Berylune features cute woodland animals hidden behind each number, so it has the added bonus of becoming a pride of place feature piece for the top of a chest of drawers or bedside!
Lighting is a quick and inexpensive way of instantly injecting some Christmas magic into a space.
Fairy lights are always a winner, or to create a fabulous focal point this wooden LED star light by All Things Brighton Beautiful would look great lighting up a room.
Finally, a few words of practical advice for revamping their room for Christmas:
Have fun! If ever there was a time of year to pull out all the theatrical stops, this is it. So if that means creating a starry night sky mural on one wall, or covering the ceiling in fairy lights, embrace the magic of Christmas with confidence!
If going all out is just too much of a commitment, for subtle touches of seasonality, gold fairy lights and Nordic bunting work wonders.
For the colour shy among us, try sticking to a classic Christmas palette, for example red white and silver, and mix up the prints for a modern touch.
Whether you choose Nordic simplicity, fun tropical vibes, or Classic woodland schemes, there most certainly is a theme for all tastes out there.
Have fun creating the magic of Christmas!
