What could be more exciting than decorating a bedroom with your creative youngsters? Although you may not be able to adopt all of their ideas (chocolate fountains and real life petting zoos are probably off the table), it’s definitely possible to incorporate their tastes and preferences into a design that parents and kids alike can enjoy. This post looks at several childhood bedrooms that go beyond everyday expectations. After you check out the incredible photos below, make sure to check out this list of kid’s room wall decor to enhance your scrapbook of ideas.
Colorful and eclectic, this bedroom design would be sure to appeal to young boys and girls alike – and even teens might secretly harbor a little jealousy at some of the more creative features within. This mini tour opens with a look at the colorful study area, complete with an a-frame table and whimsical patchwork chair, a window seating area covering expansive storage in the background.
But a glance over the rest of the room reveals so much more fun to enjoy. The jungle gym offers a fun way to exercise, leading up to a cool netted ceiling where the kids can sit and look over their playtime empire below.
Composed of polka dots on plywood, the world map makes for a fabulous accent wall with educational appeal. Chalkboards, whiteboards, and corkboards offer a place to showcase creative activities.
Even the bed area has some creative inspiration to offer. Shelves house books for bedtime stories, cute planters hang from rungs, and a stylish wooden monkey appropriately takes advantage of the ladder.
This bedroom takes a more minimalistic approach compared to the previous one, but it’s not the “stark” type of minimalist popular with hardcore design fans – this style demonstrates a fresh and clean aesthetic with plenty of room for imagination. Bright yellow accents pop out from the backdrop of blue and pink pastels, with adorable animal characters prompting immediate smiles wherever found.
Most inspiring is the bold graphic details. Strings of star-shaped lights rain down from the cutout cloud and mountaintop silhouettes adorn the cabinet doors, a neat little wonderland to explore.
Mountain peaks recur as a way to decorate an otherwise plain wooden wardrobe. The bedframe is a cool detail that makes the bed feel closer and smaller. A little lamp stands by in case bad dreams awaken the little one.
Overall, the look is exceptionally modern and sure to garner the approval of stylish parents and children alike.
Here’s another charismatic child’s bedroom from the same designer. Forms and furniture remain just as simple as before, but the color theme is noticeably brighter and more powerful. Color blocking distinguishes each functional space in creative ways. Bunny rabbits and owls – both realistic and cartoonish – make up a large part of the overall decorative theme.
And, of course, a few playfully quirky choices really stand out. The llama portrait is unexpected and so very delightful, and the alarm clock and planter combination is something most adults would want for their own office.
The capital “A” bookshelf is an undeniable focal point of the room. Toys, books, and animal figures line the shelves – but the real stars are the expressive storage boxes down below!
A glass-paneled wardrobe space ties the pastel side of the color theme together. There’s even a panel that reflects the zig zag rug, emphasized by indirect lighting that runs down one side.
This entry is a little different, demonstrating two distinctive bed options for the same space. The first composition uses a classic four-poster bed with ethereal curtains hanging from the upper frame. This is a classic style, especially suitable for children who haven’t quite outgrown fairytales but still want something that demonstrates a sophisticated style.
Alternatively, this room also looks adorable with the addition of an imaginative treehouse bed – a surefire way to convince younger children to embrace bedtime each night.
Every other aspect of the decor is relatively age-agnostic. A cloud shaped rug, checkered wood floors, and a weightless feathered pendant light are among some of the most unforgettable features.
The unique leaning wall clock is from Ari Kanerva and the sled base chair is the work of Mika Tolvanen, both accomplished Finnish designers. Also note that the rug transformed into a star shape, an alternative to the cloud.
In the corner, the classically inspired birdcage floor lamp by Mathieu Challières underscores the bedroom’s whimsical theme.
Powder blue, pink, and calming lavender serve as a lovely background in this pretty bedroom. But you’ll notice something else too – the textiles completely break away from the main color palette, avoiding the possibility of feeling too “matchy matchy” while also demonstrating that bold wall colors don’t have to limit your choice of accents.
This bedroom has several cool features worth admiring. One is the typographic accent on the wall near the door, an invitation to dance that nobody could turn down.
Unique shelving solutions also catch the eye right away. These little house-shaped shelves match the bed quite well. The colorful wallpaper backing is a touch anyone could add to their favorite shelves.
Now let’s take a little break from structured room tours to enjoy this incredible collection of modern designs by Mateusz Minkina. This short series has a few recurring themes, like scaled-down versions of iconic furniture, treehouse-shaped bedframes, and bold modern patterns that define at least one element of each room. Here, you’ll find styles for little boys and girls alike.
Finally, let’s close out this post with an awesome superhero-themed bedroom for two enthusiastic youngsters. It has everything! Make sure to check out our big list of superhero home decor to find comic inspired artwork and collectibles you can buy right now, so you can treat your own children (or inner child) to a room that looks as cool as this one.
The wall murals are definitely an admirable touch. Captain America peeks out from behind the incredible jungle gym, and Spider-Man watches over the desks to encourage kids to do their best on homework.
Each bed enjoys a different superhero as well. Framed prints of Batman and Superman represent the favorites of each sibling. Don’t miss the little Batman and Spidey figures on the floor!
Although not superhero-related, the creative cabinets definitely seem to hint at a little LEGO inspiration with the round appliques. This transformation would make a cool DIY project for the weekend!
