Any parent will tell you that one of the hardest things to do in the world is to shop for your kids. And decorating their bedroom takes this insanity to an entirely new level. As taxing as the whole experience can be, at the end of the day an expression of joy on their face is all it takes for us to feel that the entire topsy-turvy ride was worth it all! With that in mind, we have another lovely collection of kids’ bedrooms today and this time we delve into a style that allows you to use vivacious color, diverse textures and ushers in loads of playfulness. It is time to go tropical!
Tropical kids’ bedrooms are pretty easy to craft when compared to some other contemporary themes that demand more sophistication and less color. It is a theme that allows your kid to express their personality and turns their private sanctuary into a fun, energetic and imaginative setting. With summer knocking on the door, this is an exquisite style that seems like a perfect fit.
Stylish Shared Spaces
Need some inspiration for a shared kids’ bedroom? These lovely tropical style rooms below not only provide ample inspiration, but also seem to bring together aesthetics and ergonomics in stylish and relaxed fashion. With tropical style, you can turn to natural materials such wood and bamboo to create a unique space that reminds your little ones of their recent vacation to that exotic tropical getaway. From hanging beds to hammocks, you have plenty of room to improvise here and one can either pick a darker and nature centric look or a breezier ambiance inspired by the surf and the sand.
Turn to the Walls
Colorful wallpaper, custom wall murals and fun wall decals; make sure you pull you every trick in the book to turn that mundane bedroom into a chic, tropical-styled hub. In fact, by adding wall murals and decals you can quickly transform the ambiance of the kids’ room and add color to the setting even while working with a limited budget. Swinging palm trees or a lovely mural of life on the beach couple with the right decor and accessories can easily get the job done. Bedside tables in heavy wood or a whimsical canopy bed enhance this appeal and complete a truly remarkable tropical bedroom.
Inspired by the Waves
Styles such as coastal, nautical and tropical are pretty close to one another and each one of them easily borrows from the other. Blue is a great color for all 3 of those theme and wall murals and decal inspired by ‘island life’, can further take the bedroom down the coastal route. Balance this by using decor that shouts out tropical and introduce textures that are as nature-centric as possible. If you want a bedroom that combines both the tropical and coastal styles, then throw in a few ship wheels and starfishes along with a bamboo bed frame and pops of corals and greens to get the best of both worlds!
Color it Right!
While green and blue are traditionally the 2 colors that work best in tropical bedrooms, vibrant shades of orange and pink also blend in beautifully with this rich decorating style. Since we are talking about kids’ bedrooms, make sure you turn up the color spectrum to create a truly spectacular hangout for your little one. A backdrop in white, sandy beige or mellow yellow seems to work every single time and irrespective of the color palette make sure that there is plenty of natural light to really usher in that delightful tropical vibe.
