Holland Park, Kid's BedroomContemporary Kids, London
This fun and colourful kid’s bedroom opts for an interactive, safe and playful space. The room uses splashes of reds and yellows with swathes of white to offset the glowing colour palette. The fun room includes playful furniture and an assortment of toys to keep the children occupied.

Can you make my home family friendly?Making a home practical and family friendly doesn’t mean having to cut back on style or character. There’s a great range of fabrics and materials around that will protect your home from children’s sticky fingers and other little accidents. Creating environments for children is a great opportunity for you and your designer to come up with something unusual. However, creating something unusual may mean going bespoke, so be prepared to invest a little more if you want something unique for your home.TELL US…What would you ask an interior designer?

Think outside the boxWhen we consider storage seating, we generally assume the storage space sits within the seat. But in this child’s bedroom, two innovative snugs have been carved out of the unit, turning that concept on its head.TELL US…Have you created an innovative seating/storage solution?

Build their very own recreation spaceWho wouldn’t want a plush reading pod and their own climbing wall… never mind the kids! As if an indoor fitness area and a cosy nook to while away the hours with a book (ideally) didn’t sound good enough, the bright palette of primary colours is as stimulating to look at as it would be to play in.
Carve out hidey-holesMy children love little spaces in which they can make a camp, read a book or snuggle up. These clever built-in chill-out seats are the perfect place to climb in, shut out the world and free the mind.TELL US…Have you created a dedicated play space for your kids?

Think outside the boxThis fabulous seating idea adds drama to the room, but is functional as well, providing a fun place for children to hide away and read. Hire a designer to create quirky seating and storage areas that make good use of unusual nooks and corners – you’ll be surprised at what they can come up with. The climbing wall, meanwhile, takes care of energetic play when reading time is over.
