Kids Room Wall Ideas

Thursday, July 17, 2014









So the thing about decorating kids rooms is there are so many freaking adorable ideas. With the rest of my house, while I love many things and many styles, there is just something engrained in me that gravitates pretty heavily towards vintage/modern. No matter what design styles I am currently coveting, or what I buy, or how I try to decorate my house, it always ends up going in the same direction and having a similar vibe. As much as 'things' in my house have changed/rotated in and out, or as I have tried to "drastically" change things up at different times in my life I can always look around and see that this has always been me. It just evolves. Never really changes. Kids rooms, though. Even within one style like vintage or modern, or black and white, or colorful or whimsical there is so many wonderful ideas and directions one can go. And I tend to love them all! But having kids and kids rooms for years now, I do know it's best to pick a style and stick with it, which I am trying to do (so hard). For some reason the chaos of toys that ensues in a child's room looks a little less crazy if it has a styled backdrop behind, under and around them. So while I know I want to go with a pretty simple color palette and in a more minimal direction (black/white/grey/ and of course a splash of pink for milo) I feel like before I go any further I need to decide what to do with the walls. I think there is bound to be more painting in my very near future. I have to give this pin honorable mention, because while it's not the direction I am going in, every time I see this image I swoon a bit.

  1. The polka dot wall is so cute! And how about those clouds? I think a painted wall in the kids' room is a lovely idea, and I think I would go with neutral colours.

  4. Personally, I'd find the rain drops and crosses a bit too macabre for a kids room. Well, maybe just the rain drops; the crosses are certainly trendy now but i think the Pia Wallen craze is dying down? I don't know. What do M+L think? Which ones do they like the most?? xo

  5. Yes I did a post a while ago on the neutral trend in children's rooms. It makes sense in that it can grow with your child and they will not be stuck with blue and yellow gingham and mother goose on their walls when thy are in high school like my poor nephew. But I never even thought about the whole toy thing. That makes sense! Plus it will match the rest of the aesthetic of the home.

  7. Cute! Im redoing Nora's room for sharing with the new baby and I haven't really started planning. I think what I love most about kid room decor thats surfacing is a more grown up color palette that can translate to when they get a little bit older... Theres still lots of whimsey and wonder but loving the bolder color choices.

  8. Oh that pin is wonderful! (A serious labour of love though... with my paiting skillz, all of these would be a serious labour of love). I am very much drawn to those beautiful clouds. Wonder if Jordan would go for them in our room?!

  9. That pin IS pretty amazing! I really love rain clouds right now, I think it's the Oregon pluviophile in me. I love the pom pom garland too!
