Kids Decor Trends

So often, we enter a new year with an eagerness to see what trends will emerge, and how they will shape our lives. And while kids’ rooms tend to be more inherently personal, and less reflective of trends than their adult counterparts, there is no doubt that we are seeing some themes emerge. It’s all about the outdoors, with an emphasis on green, nature, and sky. Perhaps the need for us all to hunker down more at home these past two years has created a demand for more outside on in the inside. Or perhaps it’s inborn, this desire to connect with nature? (Google ‘biophilia’, for some food for thought.) Either way, it’s a refreshing interior design concept and a poignant reminder of why embracing sustainability is one of down2earth’s core principles.

Here we explore five options for your child’s personal space.


Who doesn’t love stars? They evoke feelings of wonder and are worthy of our wishes. I have fond memories of glow in the dark star shaped stickers adorning my walls as a kid. I’m sure my mother felt differently. Thankfully, there are any number of ways you can incorporate this theme into your child’s décor, that don’t involve unforgiving adhesive.

If daydreaming is more to your liking, what better to gaze at than blue skies and fluffy clouds? How comforting to know that you can have always have good weather, regardless of what Mother Nature has in store.

A fascinating array of color in the most cheerful package. Where there are rainbows, surely there are other treasures. From the standard ROYGBIV shades to a range of muted hues, it’s the variety that makes this design scheme sing. If choosing a limited palette isn’t for you, look to the rainbow!

Take me to a land far away, you say. A jungle is nature at its finest, replete with exotic animals and juicy tones of pink, red, orange and yellow. The options are unlimited. Let your imagination go wild! (wink)

Something of fairytales, a woodland design scheme brings the magic indoors with dreamy tones, punctuated by shades of green. Friendly critters and earthy elements transform a room into a happy place, befitting any child.
