How to create an island adventure in your children’s room

23 May, 2016

Let your children’s imaginations leap into their most treasured spaces and transform their room into something truly magical. If you’re planning to redecorate or renovate, starting with your children’s bedroom can help to unlock your interior creativity throughout the rest of your home. Here we explore how to make your children’s space amazing using an island adventure theme that can be easily adapted for your home:

Shade rave

Vibrant shades play an important part of creating a room that looks and feels like a jungle. Add in lush shades of green and colourful animal wallpaper to really give the feeling of wilderness. The bolder the pattern, the bigger the statement, and the introduction of a daring feature wall will add to the excitement.

Wild at heart

Choose your children’s favourite animals and feature them in their room – from tigers to elephants and creatures as tiny as frogs, the Photowall collection of animal wall murals will be the perfect introduction to your child’s room. If you’re not entirely sure whether to commit to an entire animal-based wallpaper, scatter some animal figurines or soft toys around the room to continue that playful element.

Prop pops

Whether it’s the shape of the bed or simple cues that evoke the feeling of an island adventure – there are a whole host of things you can add into your child’s room to give it that extra something. If your children are pirate-obsessed, throw in nautical accents and channel red, white and blue hues to remind your child of maritime musings.
