Monochrome Kids Bedroom Inspiration

With all my anxiety problems recently I’ve spent lot of time redirecting my thoughts into something constructive. So basically, that means that my Pinterest feed has been filled with idyllic images of perfect rooms in my house, that whilst lovely to dream about, in reality will never happen. But one room I’ve been madly pinning ideas for is Chase’s bedroom. If I’m being honest, it doesn’t need decorating. I actually decorated it whilst pregnant in a cutesy safari theme, and so far, Chase has never actually slept in his room. But I’ve decided that redecorating it will both feed my need to do something creative, and help me come to terms with my little man growing up.

Monochrome Kids Bedroom

I’ve tried to choose a theme that is perfect for a toddler, but will also grow well with him. So I’ve chosen a monochrome kids bedroom theme. Namely because I like the simplistic and visually stimulating designs that a black and white colour scheme has to offer.

Looking around, a monochrome kids bedroom seems to be the ‘in’ thing at the moment. The whole Scandinavian design ethic is everywhere. Bold, clean, and able to make a statement. It’s the perfect base for any room, and offers the ability to add a splash of colour in your decor later on if needed.

Being a kids bedroom, I wanted it to have a “theme” that he can relate to in the room. So I’ve chosen an ‘adventures’ theme alongside the monochrome, which I reckon should go pretty well together.

Room Inspiration

As I said, I’ve been busy pinning ideas for Chase’s new monochrome kids bedroom. And have found that a few things seem to stick out for me that I want to recreate for him. Below is just a snippet of the inspiration taken from my Pinterest board.

I really want to get him a teepee/wigwam. I thinkΒ it’s something he will love now, and still enjoy in five years time. More if I’m lucky! Plus, it will fit brilliantly in his reading nook. To keep it neutral (in case I decide to redecorate again), I’m swaying towards something simple like stripes or chevrons. Or even triangles to match the wall decals. There seem to be hundreds of stores selling them now, so I think I’m going to be spoilt for choice! Though I am contemplating making one myself if I can’t decide!

Another thing I keep going back to is a house bed. Not only do they look super cool, but their base is almost on the floor. Chase is such a fidget in bed, and often ends up leaning up against the sides, or sideways at the foot end of the bed! So I really like the idea of his bed being low enough that if he does “fall out”, then he’s only rolling maybe an inch or two onto the carpet.

Finally triangles. I love triangles as a shape anyway as they have three sides, and three is one of my lucky numbers. But triangles also match my adventures theme quite well also, as they are the shape of mountains, arrowheads, and teepees! I’m going to look to incorporate triangles in quite a few ways actually. Firstly, small triangle wall decals on the feature wall. Then I’m going to paint some mountains in the reading nook. And finally, add triangles into the decor by having prints of mountains and teepees, as well as other decorations to go on shelves around the room.

Chase’s Monochrome Kids Bedroom Wishlist…

So here’s a selection of items currently on my wishlist for his room – and more importantly where to find them!

1. Wooden Tribal Blocks, 2. Mini Black Triangle Wall Decals, 3. Murray The Moose Pillow, 4. Wooden Bed House, 5. Black Star and Chevron Basket, 6. Adventure-Themed Prints, 7. Felt Pom Pom Garland, 8. Teepee Fleece Blanket, 9. Black Chevron Teepee, 10. OYOY Adventure Rug

So many lovely monochrome and adventurous things to choose from! Writing this down is actually getting me really excited about how his room will turn out. I’ve decided to try and do as much of the decorating myself as possible. And then use small businesses to get the things I can’t make myself. I’m a big fan of shopping small, and showing my support to local businesses. And what better way to do that than to buy and showcase through happy captures on my blog and social pages?

Anyway, that’s my monochrome kids bedroom inspiration post. I hope you enjoyed reading. Stay tuned, as you know there’ll be a series ofΒ in-progress and reveal posts to follow!

    1. Oh same here! On both counts! I’ve been buying bits and pieces as I see offers since Christmas now and finally decided I have enough to make a start! Though I think that teepee is going to have to wait until his birthday in the summer, as I definitely can’t afford one of those anytime soon! I do love them though!

  1. What lovely ideas you’ve come across! I’ve actually spent most of the day spring cleaning our spare bedroom so my soon to be 1 year old Son can use it as his playroom. Yet to put ideas together for how I want it to look but you’ve definitely helped spark excitement with these stunning finds x #KCACOLS

    1. Ooh I love the start of a creative project! Though everytime I get thinking of a new room to decorate I end up with at least 10 Pinterest boards full of different themes to choose from! I hope you manage to come up with something!

  2. I love this look for a kids bedroom. My Pinterest board is full of ideas for house decor I just need to earn enough money so I can actually start decorating! #dreamandsparkle

    1. Ahh yes I know that feeling! I’ve been buying bits and pieces whenever there’s an offer on amd storing them ready! ? I only got paint last weekend as it was 1/3 of the usual price in the clearance section, and I had vouchers to use! Haha

    1. I think monochrome can be styled in so many ways that it makes it really versatile for a kids room. I’m also using the colours to add a mountain scene into the room to break up the black and white a bit. So fingers crossed it comes out well!

  3. Those rooms are stunning! I love the teepee, might have to look for one to go in my daughters room! Enjoy all the decorating, I love deciding how to redo a room πŸ™‚ #KCACOLS

    1. I love the splashes of colour too! I haven’t decided yet which to use for his room though. I like teal, red and yellow. I’m swaying towards teal – But I already have two other rooms that use teal in the house! Haha πŸ˜€

    1. I’m glad I chose it! Although it was a tough call between this and a space theme! I went to the NASA Kennedy Space Station some years ago, and have some amazing photos and memorabilia I wanted to use in his room! But then thought I’d rather wait until he’s a bit older to use those [precious] things in his room! πŸ˜€ Haha. At least with a black and white room, I can easily adapt it to a space theme if I change my mind! πŸ˜€

  4. When you said a kids monochrome bedroom i totally didn’t think I would like it. We tend to like colors – the bolder and brighter the better. But those ideas are amazing! I LOVE it! And so easy to accessorize. I can’t wait to see what you end up doing with his room πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing. #KCACOLS

    1. It’s hard to think of black and white being good for a kids bedroom – But I think as long as you accessorise well, and use e=shapes and patterns to your advantage, it can look amazing! I guess it’s the whole minimalist approach that makes it work somehow!?

  5. The house bed is so cool! I have never seen anything like it before! I hope you go with the Tipi … looks great and you guys could have so much fun in it! #DreamandSparkle

    1. It’s amazing isn’t it? It’s definitely near the top of my “want” list for his room! As is the teepee! Though it’s typical the top two things I want are the most expensive! πŸ˜€ Haha. I’m really looking forward to pulling it all together though πŸ˜€ Thanks!
