Kid’s Room Styling Intention:
I now set the intention to create my child’s bedroom into a peaceful haven to sleep and dream.
Here are my favorite ways to style a kids room for success with intention:
Clean, Clear, Organized and Clutter-free Room
A space that’s clean and organized creates a harmonious ambiance. Dust and vacuum often. Create ‘breathing room’ on kids’ shelves, under the bed and in the closet. Declutter toys and books periodically to create a healthy flow of energy in the room.
Positive, Fresh Air Quality
Open windows often for some fresh air. This stirs up the energy and air quality of the room. Try gentle essential oils or a natural aromatherapy spray with a blend of lavender and chamomile to promote a calming atmosphere for sleep and rest.
Organize in Color
Organize kids toys in colorful bins or canvas totes for an organized room. This will add personalization and pops of color in the space. Make sure to put the toys away before going to sleep. When a room is organized it feels peaceful.
Colors in Room
Color has a major effect on kid’s sleep patterns. Use neutral or pastel color palette for walls. Color such as: sky blue, blush pink, mint green, pale yellow or a sandy taupe is great color choices. These colors promote calm, and peace. Pops of color for accents and accessories for décor is the perfect way to add a splash of color, style, personality and personalization to the space.
Proper Furniture Size & Placement
Pick furniture that fits properly and proportionally to the size of the room. The ideal placement for the bed is referred to as the Command position. The bed is placed in the room (preferably diagonally, not in front of it or in line with the door) so you can see the door and who’s entering.
Also, a solid headboard against the wall, not under the window is a great choice to feel secure and peaceful.
Positive & Uplifting Room Décor
Pick a room theme or décor that is comforting and positive. Refrain from picking harsh stimulating themes, décor or bed sheets. Avoid wild animals or prints, symbols of violence & destruction or fighting superheroes or ninjas – especially for boys!
Decorate With Symbols of Intention
Incorporate décor symbols of things they love, achievements they are proud of, or their artwork. Also, any places they want to visit or new things they want to do or try. Decorating this way will build their confidence, self-esteem and happiness.
Favorable Lighting & Window Treatments
A room that lets in natural light brings in cheer. Make sure room is well-lit and let in natural light during the day and use shades, blinds or drapes when napping or sleeping.
Add Natural Elements for Calm
For a soothing ambiance use a Himalayan salt lamp as a nightlight. Also placing rose quartz crystals on a shelf exudes a soothing and loving peaceful energy in the room.
Soothing Sounds For Sleep
If your child has trouble falling asleep at night, try playing a children’s meditation or soothing nature tunes- such as ocean, rain or rainforest sounds. These soothing melodies work wonderfully in helping drift off to sleep.
Tech Gadgets in Kid’s Room
Put away all tech gadgets and electronic devices such as iPads, laptops, tv, gaming systems and iPhones before going to sleep. Keeping these devices on creates stimulation and best to remove from kid’s room at bedtime for better rest and sleep.
