Allowing your child to be involved in the decoration of his or her room is a great way to ensure that they not only feel comfortable in their surroundings, but also get enjoyment out of knowing that they have contributed to designing their own original space. One of the easiest ways to encourage creativity in this area is by incorporating wall art in the form of stickers and decals, which can be easily changed and updated when your child grows older and develops new interests.
A fantastic and creative addition to a child’s room is an entire chalkboard wall, not only great for allowing your child’s creativity to be unleashed, but also nice for Mums and Dads worried about little hands finding their way to that freshly painted wall! Whether you want to paint a whole wall of the room to allow for the ultimate drawing board, or simply add a few smaller chalkboard decals, it’s guaranteed to be a hit with little ones, and you never know, you could have a budding Picasso just waiting for the right opportunity to show off their skills!
Adding a theme to your nursery or child’s room is also made really easy by adding beautiful decals to the walls, and Gigi Brooks has a range suitable for a fantastic variety of different themes. With everything from sports, cars, music and animals, to nature, royalty and many more, there’s something here for everyone and many of them can even be personalised for an extra special touch. Your little ones will love seeing their name up on the wall in pride of place and are sure to feel a great sense of achievement having helped pick out the design.
Quotes and inspirational words are very on trend right now for nurseries and are a great way to add a lovely, personal touch to the room, giving it character and dimension. Why not add a touch of whimsy to your nursery with beautiful phrases such as ‘If you can dream it, you can do it’, ‘Shoot for the goal’ or ‘You are stronger than you seem, braver than you believe and smarter than you think you are’. Your little ones are sure to be motivated and excited for each and every day with these carefully chosen words, and Mum and Dad will undoubtedly cherish the sentiment too.
If you are looking for something a bit more permanent to add to your little one’s room, why not opt for a hand-painted, bespoke mural, tailored entirely to your specifications and desires? Murals add a beautiful decadence to a room and can make your little one feel like they’re sleeping in outer space, a princess fairy-tale land or even under the sea! Paired with a bespoke-made spaceship, pumpkin carriage or sailing boat bed, your little ones will be dreaming of far-off adventures for years to come.
If your children love arts and crafts they can create some of their own wall art with the help of our friends over at MyBaba, who have shared some tips and tricks for creating beautiful artwork from everyday essentials! It’s super simple and a really fun way to spend an afternoon, and moreover, once your children have designed their very own masterpieces, you can then create a dedicated art gallery using this Baroque inspired frame decoration.
