A Whimsical Life, A New Bedroom Idea

For those who know me well, know I love whimsical treasures... Furniture, decoration and jewelry are all favourites of mine to find a little touch of whimsy!

One of the best places to create whimsy in your home, is in a baby nursery or a child's bedroom. As my children get older, i am finding myself wanting and needing to change there bedrooms around. My son started grade school this year, and now needs a space for a desk. My daughter will be three at Christmas, and no longer needs all those baby nic nacs I had collected during pregnancy.

I have been researching fun and whimsical ideas on how to rearrange and decorate their rooms, while giving them the spaces they need and creating a fun environment.

During my search, I found some really fun and imaginative ideas!

Here is a fun retro style room in a woodland theme. I love how essentially easy this would be to recreate without going all the way "camp ground". All you need is a piece of artificial grass or green rug and some woodland themed wall decals to get the basic woodland feel.

i found this room on The Lettered Cottage Blog


Here is a fun Fawn figurine I found on etsy.com


Here is a green rug idea I found at Ikea
 
 
 
Wall decals are an easy and less expensive alternative to wall paper. Most decals are available in a variety of colours. These were found on etsy.com
Textiles are also a fun and inexpensive way to change a room. Curtains and cushions in a woodland theme would be a great addition to this Woodland themed room.

Woodsy curtains found at shopregal.ca
 
Woodland animal theme cushions from Savage Seeds
 
Try mixing new decorations with vintage finds or garage sale bargains. This is a great way to personalize a room into one-of-a-kind without breaking your budget! You also will have a more "homey" feel instead of just a Big Box store replica.
 
Most of all, have fun decorating your child's room. Maybe even ask them for their ideas!
