Fun & Educational Chalkboard
Your children will certainly be really pleased if you make them an intriguing edge in their space where they can reveal themselves. Paint among the walls in chalkboard paint or repaint some furniture piece. They can attract and also can do some innovative illustrations on the chalkboard.
Or you can also make paintings on the chalkboard with the themes of space, solar system ,science, and others that can educate them in a fun way.

In a bedroom at fashion stylist Meredith Melling’s family retreat on Martha’s Vineyard, which was designed by Ariel Ashe and architect Reinaldo Leandro, the bunk beds and walls are painted in Benjamin Moore’s Fairy Tale Blue, the throws are from Pottery Barn Kids and the rug is Moroccan.
Create Mini Art Galleries
The wonders of great artwork! Walls adorned with gallery-style wall decor are popping up, and the best part of this fun trend is that it celebrates all styles of art and doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Photo courtesy of ProjectNursery.com
At her Lake Forest, Illinois, home, designer Megan Winters swathed the walls of a bedroom for her niece in a zebra-print wallpaper by Brunschwig & Fils. The bed and ceiling light are vintage, the linens are by Frette and the ottoman is by Oly.
Kids are a great joy of family life, but one thing that can be difficult is decorating a bedroom of someone that grows so quickly before your eyes! I’m really big on gender neutral design and looking at this room, you wouldn’t be able to tell whether or not it belonged to a girl or a boy.
Modern Breton Themed Bedroom
Everything is positioned conveniently, such as the comforting bedside light, an accessible bedside table for his drink and storage below his table for toys. Next to his bed is a laundry bag which encourages tidiness. To the right of his bed is a large shelf of favourite books, recently converted to his workspace. To the left of his bed is an empty area for running around with friends.
Use Your Kid’S Artwork
Nothing will make your favorite little artist more proud than getting his or her very own doodles and drawings matted and framed. It adds color and a healthy dose of imagination to a bedroom or playroom. Plus, they’re one-of-a-kind pieces of art. Have them sign the bottom corner to make it feel even more official.
Fun Removable Wallpaper
Whether it’s a pretty floral print or glow-in-the-dark constellations, a fun removable wallpaper is an easy—and low-commitment—way to add a little something extra in your child’s room.
Start With Good Bones
Large pieces, such as furniture and rugs, can be a major investment, which is why we say you should start with well-made styles that will last throughout your little one’s childhood.
Add Removable Pieces
Easily removable pieces, such as a butterfly mobile or wall decals, are perfect for an ever-changing children’s room.
Make Memories Matter
Sure, family photos are something simple and common. But they are definitely an important part of every family and an important detail. So many people end up stashing away great photos in boxes or photo albums. Display them front and center instead! It’s also a great way for your kids to get familiar with extended family that they might not get to see all that often. Whether it’s a single framed photo or a whole collage, they are such a classic way to decorate.
Paint A Chalkboard Wall
Chalkboard paint ($10, ) is nothing new, but when it’s brushed onto an entire wall of your kids’ bedroom, it will provide them with hours of entertainment. Whenever they feel inspired to “redecorate,” they can use the wall to create some fresh wallpaper.
Pick A Paint That Matches The Mood
Choose a soothing wall color, like lavender, that gives a room an ease-into-sleep feel. A soft blue is another calming hue.
Set Up A Play Station
Carve out a play area with plenty of materials to spark imagination, like clothing items for dress-up.
Invest A Standout Bed
In the home of blogger Elsie Larson, the adorable treehouse-inspired bed is the star of the room. This bed is still available on ($920), and the retailer also offers .
Accessorize With Patterns
An easy way to add flair to any child’s room is with patterned accessories. This $350 playroom makeover comes to life with the addition of colorful and vibrant pillows. The feminine floral rug complements the pillows, and together they create a cheerful play space. Photo courtesy of ProjectNursery.com
Choose Oversized Wall Decals
Add graphics in an instant along with a bit of drama. When selecting decorative wall decals or wall stickers, think big. For just a little more, many companies offer custom designs and sizes so you can let your child’s imagination run wild. Photo courtesy of ProjectNursery.com
Use The Abcs.
Don’t be afraid to use monograms or hashtags. Oversized wall letters can create a great and unique touch of personalization on bedroom walls. Whether you decorate with their initials or a few of their favorite phrases or words, kids will love reading their own walls.
