Designing a child’s bedroom can be great fun! We are all used to seeing cute bedrooms with traditional ‘pink for girl’ ‘blue for boy’ decor. But with all the amazing wallpapers, light fittings and bedroom accessories there are available today you should really think outside the box! A sophisticated style that can transition easily from child to teen by simply changing accessories is a good and practical way to go! This article below first appeared in https://www.laurelandwolf.com/ and is a great inspiration!
“At Laurel & Wolf, we believe you’re never too young to get inspired by great design! Creating a functional space for your little one is important but there is also plenty of room in design to encourage exploration and create moments that will delight your child’s imagination.
The perfect example of this is Valeria Girimonte and Alexis Bernard‘s new space for their daughter, Camille. With the help of one of our designers, Estie Kessler, they wanted to create a romantic, playful and serene room that wasn’t too babyish or feminine.
“When I found the wallpaper, I really fell in love with it and wanted to build the room around it,” Valeria said. “I was traveling back and forth to Asia at the time and the highlight of my 16-hour flight was to see what Estie was coming up with.” Estie agreed, adding the wallpaper was the perfect choice to add a bold accent while still keeping the small space bright.

Estie completed Camille’s room with a patterned rug from Lulu & Georgia, a teepee from AllModern, comfy sheepskin from Pottery Barn and light figure from RH Baby & Child. “Updating a light fixture or adding a fresh coat of paint are great ways to refresh a space but if budget is a concern, just changing to lighter bedding can transform a room for spring and summer,” said Estie.
Camille enjoys reading books, so Estie also included a bookshelf from All Modern…”
