Kids Bedroom Upholstery Fabrics

Which of your fabrics is suitable for kids rooms?

Vanessa can still remember the fabric in my bedroom when she was a little girl. Children are so observant and have time to gaze and daydream so it is important to give them pictorial fabrics to feed their wonderful, creative imaginations. Children lie awake for bed more than we do and are eager to look around and absorb their surroundings.

Vanessa's eldest daughter, Rose, drew all the animals in our design Wild and Free, found on cave drawings and Etruscan cases, drawn during many visits to the British Museum. If that won’t feed the imagination of little ones we're not sure what will! Also, her younger daughter, Flora, drew the fun bird for Bird Hop. Both designs are available in a range of stunning colours, from Saffron yellow to Tomato red.

By the Sea is a wonderful scene for gazing at, with people walking their dogs, sailing boats and lighthouses; Vanessa's husband drew these images after a weekend visit to Mousehole in Cornwall.

These fabrics will grow with the kids, they are not exclusively for ‘little people’ and you won’t have to change the curtains as they grow up. Children become very attached to the familiar.

These designs are printed on beautiful linen and come in lots of gorgeous colours and for me fit the bill.

Children's bedrooms and playrooms can look really wonderful with full length curtains they can brighten up and transform any children’s bedroom, playroom or nursery.

If you simply cannot decide which is best, blinds or curtains in a child or baby’s room then try using both. Doing so provides privacy, and gives you design options you will not have with blinds alone, adding more colour and pattern.

You can choose from different headings although I prefer a cottage pleat header for children’s playrooms and bedrooms, being soft and pretty.  It is also worth mentioning lining here, interlining helps insulate and keep the room warm and blackout lining can be added to discourage early morning waking.

Pretty Maids and Stockholm Stripe all coordinate beautifully with them and work well as coordinates for a chair, cushion or bed head.
