6 child friendly interior decoration ideas for your home

Posted 9 April 2019

Building a new home is an incredible time for parents and kids – not only can you capitalise on spacious living trends, such as incorporating a dedicated children’s wing, you also get the chance to decorate your kid’s rooms from the ground up.

Enjoy making their best bedroom/s yet with these child-friendly interior decoration ideas brought to you by The Style Studio by Summit:


Pick your theme
Starting out with a theme can provide ongoing inspiration from start to finish. Whether it’s a strong, decisive theme, such as a ‘pirates room’ or just more of a colour mood board, having a vision in mind can help guide every decorating decision along the way. Be sure to involve your kid’s in this important decision-making process – they might just surprise you with the uniqueness of their ideas!

Light up with creativity
Lights are a fun and fast way to add vibrancy and playfulness to any kids room. Switch out the standard light cover for a funky design that suits the theme of the room.

Winning with wallpaper
Wallpaper is a fantastic option for kid’s rooms, swiftly creating a vibrant feature wall that can anchor the whole room. A child’s room can give immense depth and warmth with textured wallpaper that enables the furniture to truly shine.

Go crazy with colour
Whilst you may feel more subdued with your own bedroom, enjoy the opportunity to splash out with vibrant colour in the children’s room/s.

Punchy pictures
With so many funky prints on the market, from vintage-style iconic photography to quirky quotes, a hanging picture (or two, or three!) is becoming an essential item for any kid’s room. Also, why not consider digging up that digital camera from your last holiday and seeing what photos you can blow up – chances are, you’ve snapped a gorgeous shot that will add instant warmth and love.

Heirloom it up
Creating a new bedroom space doesn’t have to mean starting with a completely clean slate. A cherished rug knitted by grandma that sits on the edge of the bed can be the finishing touch to even the most modern of bedrooms.
