1. Vintage is back, baby!

Scandinavian style has been king for the past few years and while we’ve all enjoyed it, I’m thrilled to see a few more vintage pieces popping up around the place. Add a vintage touch to your children’s room by up-cycling an op-shop find or hanging a framed vintage poster or rug.

2. Mustard, navy and leopard

Mustard yellow is still a strong accent colour this year for children’s rooms but my advice is to use it sparingly. I particularly love mustard when it’s paired with navy blue and some new season animal prints, such as leopard. I love using a graphic print to break up these two really strong colours. Use mustard cushions or a really cool bedside table – the items featured below are from Mustard Made.

3. Pastels, done differently

Pastels are still beautiful for your children’s rooms and, when used well, can last well into their teen years. Recently, I’ve been putting a bit of a twist on your usual pastel space by adding in a graphic print, such as this black and white kid’s room. It’s an unexpected touch that breaks up the soft colour palette, adding a modern touch while still being sweet.

4. Boho is here to stay

There’s a lot of lovely cane pieces available for children, and mixed with all the boho style homewares in stores, you can create the perfect space for your newborn all the way up to teens. Mix cane and timber back with embroidered cushions and throws. Add in a few plants and you’re well on your way. If you’re decorating for a teen, add in a hanging chair.

5. KonMari for kids

A huge trend in 2019 is getting the most out of your storage solutions and organisation. Having a place for everything in your children’s spaces allows them to be more autonomous and will encourage them to keep their rooms tidy and clutter-free. Create special spaces around your children’s rooms for all of their belongings – a place to display their Lego creations or trophies or a pin board for pictures, ribbons or special notes. Hooks are a must for bags, necklaces, sports medals, etc.
