Updating your little one's bedroom scheme needn't be another dull adult chore to tick off your to-do list, especially if you're a big kid at heart. Let yours and your child's imagination run wild by playing around with a multitude of colours and fun prints that encapsulates their personalities.  

If you're looking for some inspirational to get started, these quirky kids bedroom decor ideas are sure to help.

Go bold, go bright with glorious geometrics

Why paint a bedroom wall in one shade when you can paint it in four? Break up a feature wall with a mix of bright and neutral block colours such as pillar box red and stone grey. Place a centric hand-painted geometric pattern between these two shades in contrasting duck egg blue and mustard hues to add interest.

Sticking to plain bed sheets and flooring will allow you to add further pops of colour with decorative pillows and accessories.

Stylish nautical theme

Arrr, shiver me timbers! The nautical theme remains a popular choice for boys bedroom decor but that doesn't mean you have to buy a captains bed and anchor printed everything.

Opt for a subtle but stylish coastal theme by sticking to the core primary colours of red, white, and blue, fusing stripes and check prints. Introduce elements of the traditional nautical theme by dressing window seals with sailing boat ornaments, and a hanging globe for budding globetrotters. 

The perfect room for a teddy bears picnic

Ditsy florals and dainty heart prints in pinks, whites and reds make for the perfect setting to host a teddy bears picnic. Get crafty, by knitting a play tea and cake set for your little one.

The addition of a children's play teepee as cosy and as pretty as this one will keep them entertained for hours.

Room for two

Struggling for decor ideas to suit a bedroom for both your son and daughter? We've got it covered. Use decorative storage furniture to cleverly divide the room in two and keep walls neutral to style each side by a print that suits each of their personalities or likes.

In order to accumlate a group of mismatched interiors, opt for the same or similar print bedding in alternative colours. Choose gender neutral coloured furnishings such as rugs to break up white floor space. For the fun factor, use storage that takes the shape of animals or trees.

Is your child fascinated by all creatures great and small? To create a stylish and sophisticated scheme with their favourite animals, choose a calm wallpaper print for a feature wall and try to match this with bedding. 

Choosing a palette of greens and blues will allow you to include opulent, grown up furnishings such as a mini velvet armchair with accessories of fun characatures.
