Rainbow Retreat // happy spaces for little faces!
When you can’t make a vaycay – why not create a staycay? Enter rainbow retreat – a fun loving rainbow filled getaway for mini colour lovers!
Surrounded by vibrant bursts of yellow, this little space is one of the latest looks I created in my girls bedroom. The yellow adds an instant pop of happy, and those strawberry poms, well that’s just taking kip and co cute to a whole other level!!!
style tips // rainbow retreat
If you want to create your own little pocket of happy for your minis my biggest tip is don’t be afraid to experiment with colour and just have fun with the space!
Key colours used in this bedroom space to create that ‘rainbow magic’ are; yellow, mint, pink and red.
I am in love with the vibrancy of the red. While it is not a colour I tend to use very often, when I do, I LOVE it! Especially in here, I love how the red adds that vintage retro pop!
For those not confident with colour choices, a little ‘cheat’ I like to do when planning my kids rooms is to use an app called Bazzart. Here you simply upload a picture of the room you are going to restyle. You can then either screenshot or upload other images of things on your ‘wishlist’ from the web. Once you have done that all you need to do is use the scissor tools to cut them out and layer on your room. And wholla – room design done!
This helps to give you a visual idea of what the space will look like. Kind of like a ‘try before you buy’. Both my girls (aged nine and eleven) love using it to create new looks, so it’s pretty user friendly.
If you’re not too sure how to tie the whole look together, you can use another of my favourite styling tricks and make your own artwork to suit the colour palette of your room. Simples!
room decor craft ideas
A few ideas you may like to check out for some fun, simple craft activities that I have used in this room are –
- DIY egg carton flowers HERE,
- Rainbow paper plate craft HERE
- Rainbow salt dough sculptures HERE (these are ALWAYS a hit with the kids!).
Once you’re done crafting, find a place to display the artwork in your kids bedrooms. This not only helps to personalise the space, but it also helps little ones to develop a sense of pride, ownership and belonging in their room.
ABOVE: interior tip for kids // using vibrant colour pops in a child’s bedroom creates an inviting and playful atmosphere where kids will naturally gravitate to.
As for me, I’m off to clean up all the play dough remnants in the kitchen left by this cheeky monkey while I have been busy typing here. Then I think it may be time to enjoy some fresh sea air!
Till next time,happy days!
