    I’ve been researching children’s bedroom schemes recently, as part of an Insight page for a future issue of 25 Beautiful Homes. And I’ve learnt that there’s a wealth of ways to create fun, interactive plays areas for children that also complement the rest of your home. And this layout caught my eye as a great example. A bold, stripy rug injects some essential colour; there’s plenty of play space and some rustic furniture that can withstand more than a few knocks and scratches. But it’s also easy on the eye for adults too. Plenty of period detailing keeps the look grown up, wooden toys create a charmingly old-fashioned air and soft shades introduce some calm to balance the vibrancy. There are lots of ways to think outside the box when it comes to planning children’s bedrooms. Creating a space that can adapt to your child’s needs, like this one, is a great starting point.

      This space is perfect (I’m very envious having 2 kids and little space!!) I agree that children’s spaces need colour and vibrancy bright rugs/accessories are perfect and painted rustic furniture is ideal as like you said its robust and a few knows and dinks won’t really notice, yet it is still stylish.
