A child’s bedroom can sometimes be stereotyped as being an unorganised space crammed with toys and tasteless decoration. But at Sian Zeng we think your children’s bedroom should offer creativity, fantasy and imagination, whilst also being chic and timeless. There are many ways you can liven up your child’s room without it being cliché and over the top - what your little one loves today might not be so in favour in a year’s time. First things first, I’d advise anyone to step away from falling into the traditional ‘everything pink for a girl’ and ‘everything blue for a boy’ - this does not have to be the case. You can still create a child’s idealistic bedroom using subtle colours, enchanting patterns and beautiful furnishings. Our bedlinen
photoshoots are a great example of adding that special touch to a room using magical furnishings to create that fantasy feel. Sian Zeng - Woodlands Bed Linen in Brown Pink
Of course, when designing your child’s room, age is important in order for it to be the appropriate, perfect, safe haven. Here are a couple of my favourite examples of girl’s and boy’s rooms that are age-appropriate and a perfect compromise for you and your little one.
This bedroom, designed by Amie Corley
and spotted on The Inspired Room
, uses a colour palette great for all ages; vibrant and energetic, yet stylish and elegant. Sticking to a few bright statement colours (around 4-5 is perfect) and working with them in a more sophisticated application could last your child many years.. no constant redecorating means a happy bank balance!

Using neutral tones with black features works well for a boy’s room; mixing it with neutral shades offers a sophisticated finish, while blackboard paint will earn you instant cool points. House to Home

Chocolate brown and white are a great combination for your mature little man. Combine with quirky decoration and the room will still be just as fun as if it was packed with endless amounts of colour. Sukha

Lovely neutrals in lots of white space is on-trend for the ultimate chic room. The floral decoration and writing on the wall are a great way to add a whimsical touch to any bedroom - achieve a similar effect with a slim floating shelf and a row of small jam jar vases. Mokkasin blog
