2018 Decorating Trends: Create a Gorgeous Scandi Kids Bedroom
The new year is the perfect time to refresh your home and reinvigorate the decor.
And when it comes to refreshing your home, there’s one room you can’t forget: your child’s bedroom. As kids grow and develop quickly, it’s essential to regularly update their room to ensure it’s both age-appropriate and inspiring. And, what better way to do so than by incorporating the latest interior decorating trends?
From metallic details to velvet finishes, these 2018 trends are perfect for creating a gorgeous Scandi kids’ bedroom in the new year.
Metallics details are sure to be big in 2018 with shades of gold, rose gold, copper, and brass finding their ways into many kids’ bedrooms. Perfect for adding a touch of luxury as well as warmth, these metallic hues look fantastic when paired with a Scandi aesthetic.
Incorporate metallic details into your child’s bedroom sparingly – just a small statement piece can have a big impact. Select just a couple small decorative items and perhaps one large furniture piece. We love Numero 74’s Falling Star Garland in gold for a particularly magical metallic touch.
When it comes to fabrics, velvet is set to dominate in 2018. And, luckily, the soft and luxurious material makes a wonderful addition to children’s bedrooms.
Blending a feeling of comfort and cosiness with a sense of style and glamour, velvet is perfect for creating a space that both you and your child will love. However, as with metallics, it’s important not to add too much velvet as it can quickly overwhelm a small space. Just a few cushions scattered here and there or a quilt will suffice.
Alternatively, for a unique take on this trend, add a velvet feature to your little one’s wall, such as Numero 74’s Velvet Butterfly Wings, or hang a decadent velvet canopy tent above the bed.
While bold details like velvet and metallics are set to be on trend for 2018, neutral colour palettes will ultimately provide the base for a chic and fashionable space. While shades of ecru, white, beige, light brown, grey, and soft pink may be simplistic, they are perfect for achieving a light and stylish Scandinavian kids’ bedroom.
To use these colours in your little one’s bedroom, feature them not only on the walls and furniture but also decorative pieces, such as rugs and wall hangings. We particularly love Fabels’ Ecru Bunny Head and Bloomingville Mini’s Zoo Rug for a refreshed neutral look.
In 2018 there’s a children’s bedroom trend for all tastes, including those who favour a traditional aesthetic. So, if your little one loves playing with classic dolls or wooden train sets, why not match their whole room to that style?
The simplest way to give your child’s room a vintage makeover is to invest in furniture pieces with a classical appearance. These large items will instantly add a sense of old-world charm that can then be balanced with more contemporary decorative items.
Not ready to invest in furniture? No problem. Try adding vintage style items like Bonne Mere’s Quilt and Pillow Set for just a touch of this stylish trend.
Unicorns are undoubtedly the most fun trend for kids’ rooms this year. Little ones just love these mythical creatures and adding them to your child’s bedroom will instantly fill it with a sense of magic and wonder.
There are many ways you can add a unicorn touch to your child’s bedroom, including sheets and decorative objects. Toys and wall hangings, such as Lily & George’s stuffed unicorns and Fabels’ Unicorn Head, can also make fabulous options. Pick a few, and you’ll be able to give your child a fantastic refreshed space to inspire their imagination in the new year.
