Decorating your kids bedroom can an exciting project you and your child can create together. The décor and styling don’t have to be expensive, but it should reflect your child’s interests, and not your own. This may be hard to do when your child desperately wants their favourite character on their bedlinen, the walls and well everywhere in their room. That’s where your job to guide,helps keep restraint so the room becomes a practical and relaxing space for your child to retreat to.
I’ve searched high and low for kids rooms that have the styling down pat so you can be inspired to give your child’s room a spruce up or offer suggestions on ways to style the room so it doesn’t look like a wonderland mess. Who am I kidding?! No matter how styled your kid’s room is, it will end up in a mess. But as these clever bloggers, interior stylists and social media influencers have shown, sticking to a minimal colour palette and having a place for each item is a start on creating a neat and tidy space.
1. Teen Retreat
Nicole from The Builder’s Wife created this teenage retreat for her son. Technically not a room for a ‘kid’, it still works well for a tween room as well. The bed linen and decor pieces were purchased from Target and Kmart. Nicole shares her tips on how to create a children’s retreat in this post.
2. Wall Features
Another interior blogger that knows a thing or two about interior styling is Leanne from Lime & Mortar. Her daughter’s room is divine with the choice of red and aqua bedlinen, which was then featured in the gallery wall. Leanne collected items from her favourite stationery stores like Typo to create this simple vignette on the wall shelf opposite the bed.
3. Modern & Vintage
Sally from the Artful Lodger shared her 7-year-old daughter’s room on Sonia Styling and I immediately loved the room as soon as I saw it. The bedroom features a mix of modern and vintage pieces while playing with colour to create a relaxing vibe.
4. Joint Room
Rachael’s entire house is inspirational! Her daughters share a room, and she made a space for both of them. You can find details on her house here.
Instagram can be an amazing place to find well styled kids bedrooms. Just search under #kidsbedrooms and you will be spoilt for choice on designs and styles.
5. Grey & Pink
Happy Little Tenant is one Instagram account you should follow. Justine, who is a mum to two, is an interior designer and has created this sweet room for her daughter. Grey and pink are a beautiful combination for a little girls room, and as her daughter grows the room can be styled with her.

Ness from Four Cheeky Monkeys also knows a thing or two about styling fun kids rooms. Her use of colour makes each room look so much fun to play in. Ness has mixed fun kids decor with budget friendly party decorations to give this room some pop. Prints and polka dot decals are a great way to add interest to the room.

Nadine Canestri has created this combined girls and boys room by using a muted monochromatic colour scheme and adding hints of pink and grey. This fabulous interior shows pigeon pair siblings can share the one room in style.
Little Olive and Co has created this fun boys bedroom using again a monochromatic colour scheme, but instead of using the accessories and linen to bring in colour, Rachael chose a blue bedframe and incorporated a cactus print into the styling. The wall hangings can be purchased from the Little Olive and Co store.
Just me and my trusty helper here today! Photo taking, last minute stitching, tassel and pom pom making! The shop is now closed while I get everything online! Argh!! So much to do! ????????

Emma from My Beach Home is another Instagram feed you should follow – purely for beach style decor and living. When stress tells you you need a beach holiday, but you can’t afford to go anywhere, head to Emma’s Instagram page.
Her son’s room has a coastal and modern vibe with the incorporation of cacti and sports racquets on the wall as hangings. This is a room where the style can be changed gradually to reflect the age of her son.
Tam Dandy from Harlows World created this sweet girls room using grey, pastel pink and gold accents. The spliced feature wall is a great way to add interest to a kids room and the wall hooks are a great focal point to hang favourite clothing items like a tutu or handbag that is too good to be hidden away.
