Children grow up fast. Too fast.
My Edward is becoming a big boy and he should be given a room worthy of his personality which is flourishing. Suddenly, I think of ditching the powder blue walls and the cute little stuffed animals that adorn the room since birth.
But the catch: like any parent, I don’t have a lot of time and I prefer to put my energies elsewhere (you know, in everything else!). Repaint the entire bedroom? Very little for me!
After some research, here is a small, comprehensive list of the quick and reasonably priced interventions that I have listed. If you also want to have a change in your adult’s bedroom, without too much effort;).
1 – Find a theme
By establishing a theme, we limit our interventions. For example, this superb bedroom, with its nautical style, remains in neutral tones. Only the mobile, the whale cushions (I love it!) And the poster on the wall hint at the marine theme. Not too much fluff, we like it.

2 – Change the bed comforter
The duvet is the perfect element to give a room a pop. An original duvet can also set the tone for different accessories by daring the color.

3 – Apply wall stickers
The great thing about wall stickers is that they allow you to let your creativity run wild. Our store is full of shapes, colors and inspiration. You can aim for perfect alignment or not. The watchword: Have fun!
I present to you two of my current favorites in the shop:
Mint triangles stickers
Scandinavian Christmas tree stickers
4 – Add a rug
If your child does not tolerate dust or hair, this option will probably be avoided. Nonetheless, there are some gorgeous low pile area rugs that are sure to brighten up a room! Just think of animal shapes, geometric patterns, for example.
5 – accentuate a wall
Have fun with this very simple tip to create an accent wall. Chalkboard paint? A neon color? A geometric or mountain pattern?
The possibilities are limitless.
I recommend that you use masking tape made specifically for this. I personally loved the Frogtape for sale at Juneau .
If you feel like it, you could even flip this principle by applying wallpaper to just one wall.
6 – Add a storage wall
Your child is growing up, he needs his space to store his treasures, his books. And to create good habits, it is essential to provide them with the right tools. Here are a few examples of smart storage that doesn’t take up too much space.
7 – Styling an old piece of furniture
If you’re nostalgic like me, this tip is likely to appeal to you.
An old dresser can be enhanced with a brushstroke, a change of handles and even stickers! See this realization of one of my clients for her boy’s bedroom.
