This month will be 100 years since the birth of one of Britain’s literary greats, Roald Dahl. To celebrate, etc Magazine has put together some inspiring bedroom schemes to capture your child’s imagination.
A child’s bedroom is a place of creativity, safety, play and above all, imagination.
It’s important children have a place to escape to, a place they feel reflects their interests and personality – even a place for a bit of nonsense.
Many will be inspired by characters from their favourite books, and with Roald Dahl Day coming up on September 13, we can’t think of a better way to ignite imaginative minds than with some children’s bedroom decoration ideas, inspired by the stories themselves.
Roald Dahl’s books are treasured by all ages of reader across the globe, having sold more than 200 million copies of his stories worldwide.
Bringing to life inspirational and quirky characters from classics like Charlie the Chocolate Factory, Matilda and The BFG, Quentin Blake’s illustrations have stood the test of time.
The Roald Dahl collection at Brewers Home takes the creative inspiration of his stories and adapts them as ideal additions to any child’s room, in the form of bedding, cushions and fabric designs.
Here are some tips from the team at Brewers Home in creating the perfect children’s bedroom filled with pure imagination:
Curtains and blinds
If you don’t want to commit to something as permanent as wallpaper, curtains are a great way of introducing statement design in a room and to fuel your child’s imagination at bedtime.
Curtains are also handy for tying in your bedroom scheme with the room accessories and bedding.
Whether it’s Fantastic Mr Fox, Matilda, The Twits, The BFG or The Enormous Crocodile, with a wide range of characters to choose from, you are bound to find a fabric that suits your little one’s tastes.
