If you have kids who love the countryside, the outdoors doesn’t have to stay there. Most children are fascinated by all the things they can find outside. It doesn’t matter if it’s butterflies or bits of moss. If yours loves nature, you can use their passion to inspire the design for their bedroom. There are so many fun ways you can bring the outdoors inside. You can use these techniques to create a nature-inspired room for your little explorer. Read on for inspiration for a bedroom celebrating the nature your child loves.
Start by thinking about introducing some great nature motifs. You don’t have to paint an intricate mural to bring the outdoors inside. There are lots of ways you can add animals and plants to the bedroom. Look for wall stickers with butterflies, birds and other plants and animals to put on the walls. Pick some natural colours for the walls and hang some artwork that celebrates nature. You can include fun images on bedding, curtains and other items too.
If you want to have fun with the bedroom furniture, you can find unique beds for boys and girls. Camping beds doesn’t mean fold-out frames you can use in a tent. Instead, you can get a bed that’s shaped like a tent, caravan or even a treehouse. Your little one will love hunkering down in their fun bed for the night. They can pretend they’re sleeping under the stars. And you can even cover the side of the bed for extra excitement. Plus, the bed can double up as a play area during the day. They can stretch their imagination and play pretend.
Hang a Canopy
You don’t have to buy a new bed to get a camping effect. Another idea is to hang up a canopy so that they feel like they’re sleeping in a tent. You can attach a bar or some hooks to the ceiling with a length of fabric draped over it. You could even hang up a mosquito net or similar netted material. It would create a brilliant effect for a budding explorer.
It’s wonderful to look up at the night’s sky and observe the stars. If your child’s room doesn’t have a skylight, then think of the next best thing. No one says the stars have to be real. You could paint the ceiling or add some glow in the dark stickers. Another idea is to buy a light that projects the stars or perhaps the planets onto the ceiling.
Bring in Some Plants
Of course, nature doesn’t have to be just in pictures. You could add some potted or hanging plants to the room too. Make sure they can’t be easily knocked over or make a mess. You can get your child involved in keeping them fed and watered to feed their love for nature.
It’s easy to encourage your child’s passion for the outdoors. If they prefer the seaside to the country, you could make an ocean-themed room instead.
