Designer's secret tips on decorating the little one's room

The beauty about kids’ rooms is that the trends are vast, they last longer and there is no need to constantly update your child's space. We have collaborated with Medina King, Children’s Interior Designer & Creative Director at MK Kids Interiors in order to share some of her thoughts around current trends that are making waves in the children's interior design industry.

Monochrome bedroom

This trend has been that 'go to' look, especially within the UK. With many designer/makers only selling black, white and grey room accessories, the idea of the 'monochrome look' was pushed even further, creating a modern Scandinavian vibe which is somewhat easily achieved.

Pastels and metallics

Pastels such as peaches, yellows, and blues with uses of natural wooden accessories are quickly making their way into the playrooms and bedrooms.

Gone are the days of signage only being used in offices and shop fronts. The copper metallic name signage is the new classy way to mark your child's territory.

Wall Stickers

These decor pieces will continue to be in high demand because of their versatile nature. They can give one room multiple looks and are easily removed without damaging the wall and costing a fortune.

Pom Poms and Felt Ball Rugs

These cute embellishments are another creative way to jazz up a nursery which is particularly popular with the more eco-conscious parents. Usually, the handmade woolen felt ball garlands are hung across windows, on/under shelves or on walls above the child's bed. As accessories, the garlands are made to match any room's colour scheme and are commonly used in the 'monochrome nursery' or the colourful child's bedroom.

Medina’s design favourites

My signature style is adding Pom Pom trimmings along the bottom of Roman blinds, which offers my clients a stylish but playful aesthetic.

Tepees make perfect hideaways which is why kids love them. They are a must-have and is commonly used in children's bedrooms and playrooms, decorated with many cushions to turn it into a cozy little nook.

Hot air balloons are timeless pieces, that can be used both in a vintage or modern nursery. They create the most eye whimsical focal point within a space. The available design options include mobiles, models, wall paper, prints and lighting. With so much choice each space embellished with a hot air balloon theme can thus look and feel different.

The possibilities are always endless when creating a dream room for your child. Giving your children a room they will love is one of life's precious gifts.
