Appropriate Children’s Furniture
First things first. Design for your audience. Use smart furniture with clean lines that would not harm your child. Below a very simple and chic side table entitled the Neon Nightstand by The Land of Nod showcases the combination between metal and wood that thrived throughout the years. The small fluid legs are carrying the weight of a highly textured material that contrasts it and enhances its simplicity at the same time. This is a small item that can lively wake-up the room through the Neon Color. It`s simple, efficient and safe for children.
You though the gradient or ombre weared out ? You could not be more wrong. Simply pick the right shades and you will obtain an astonishing effect. Simplicity resides in a stylish Chromatic 3 Drawer Dresser wearing blue shades. This as well is from the Land of Nod and is simply brilliant and appealing. We hardly encourage you to pick your own shades through a chromatic tool and start your own DIY project.
Grey is and it will always be in vogue. Is the most common and desirable neutral. It works as a transition in any interior design whilst being elegant and neat. From the Land of Nod again below is showcased the Uptown 4-Drawer Dresser. Notice how simple colorful items can potentiate the space. Your loved one can position any toy or game on the dresser and it will look as a trophy, his own pedestal for toys and after he grows you can still use a grey dresser because it`s timeless. Color is very important but the accent does not have to come from the furnishing every time.
The wood is beautiful, noble and elegant. Beside a versatile piece of furniture shelters adorable plush toys . These modular pieces can be assembled in multiple ensembles therefore offering versatility in a sculptural shape. These piece is entitled 3 Blocks and it can be found at Kalon.
Beddings and Rugs for Kids’ Rooms
Below we have showcased several bedding and rug options that can add a very subtle touch through calm patterns that would not contrast any interiors. These should be used in a calm interior in which color comes through toys and kids` accessories. In this manner the spatiality and decor may remain appropriate at an older age as well or it can be used in another room. From diagonal lines, arrow motifs and the highly appreciated animal decor the interior design possibilities are endless.
Very simple geo prints in pastel colors can blend in kids`space magnificently despite being a popular choice for grown-ups. Teepee Bedding is showcased below simple and neat. This furnishing can be found at Ferm Living .
Retro patterns will always be in vogue. This trend shattered the market this fall and is definitely here to stay. Half Shell Rug in Teal can be found at The Land of Nod and it simply combines a dark and light turquoise in an Escher-like pattern.
Design enthusiasts will appreciate a good pattern wherever it comes from or wherever it resides. Pottery Barn Kids presented this diamond pattern in navy blue entitled the Delaney Rug.
Creative Children’s Lighting
From textiles we slowly move towards lighting. Showcased underneath we have our favorite item in this article. It`s entitled the Cloud Lamp and it`s simply brilliant. A subtle lamp contained in the decor. The Cloud Lamp has been crafted from plywood and painted in a minty blue. We find this design highly creative and efficient.
A timeless shape hosts the Light Years Yellow Table Lamp and White Base found on the The Land of Nod. Yellow is the color that creates a magnificent composition along white if the proportions are right and here they are perfect. Simply epic combination of colors in a timeless design. This lamp can be a highly fashionable and colorful addition in the child room that can be re-purposed in another room if needed.
This Weston Complete Lamp from Pottery Barn Kids is spectacular because it presents a more mystical apparel, the one of a gemstone, a piece of shard in which the lamp has been placed. The Lamp is highly spectacular and sculptural at the same time. Realized from thick glass the lamp is safe for children and highly resistant.
Pottery Barn Kids presents through the Task Lighting an industrial colorful and vibrant look that is here to stay. This design line has been adopted from several other Shops as well being extremely popular and efficient today. They`re retro and modern, they`re child like and grown up at the same time. The feeling of equality at a certain level is very important of kids, having the same lamp on your desk with your child will encourage him to be more like you and feel closer to his lifetime raw model. Be a raw model worth being!
Kids’ Decor Ideas
Last but not least we will present a few items that are meant to personalize the space to the limit and offer your child that feeling of appurtenance in his own universe.
The shelf above is unique in every home because it`s basically a small gallery populated by the personality of your own child through toys, books, accesories, colors and textures. A small invitation and a brief showcase to his identity.
Acrylic can also work, it`s versatile, colorful and simple at the same time. Zero Gravity Wall Shelves were designed by NASA if you can believe it: Nod Acrylic Shelving Association and they create that special floating effect. They can be mixed vertically in a geometric pattern, a random creative one or simply used punctually where needed, isolated.
This Star Fluo fromNumero74 is quite an addition, a very unique and authentic addition. It`s crafted in steel wrapped in fluorescent wool, making it safe for use. Feel free to get creative in a DIY Project and write whatever you want with your own font, wearing any color and or texture. Using a laser cutter in wood or water jet cutter in steel can simplify the work.
Below we have showcased a few storage baskets that we have found creative and appropriate for a child for one single reason: you can use the baskets as a paint canvas and creatively work with your own child to paint them in a colorful pattern. Imagine how much would an enfant enjoy this process and how much it would encourage his creativity. Simple, colorful, epic, filled emotion and sensibility, all in one personalized item by the entire family.
