If you're interested in a Montessori approach to teaching your child, you may also be interested in incorporating some of these philosophies into your child's most personal space - his or her bedroom. Here are three great examples of Montessori-inspired bedrooms to help you translate this educational approach into decor.

Vincent's Montessori-Inspired Room: a full tour of a beautiful toddler room with many Montessori elements. Mother Alex (former Ohdeedoh writer who works in a Montessori school) describes one of Maria Montessori's fundamental beliefs: "Order, simplicity, routine and beauty are paramount. She felt that children are their own best teachers, and by observing the basic rule of Montessori which is to "follow the child" we are helping them to help themselves."

Finnian's Montessori Room: Meg, a Montessori educator, created a beautiful room for her son Finnian. "I wanted it to be child-friendly and easily organized, I wanted it to be hand-made to the best of my time and abilities, and I wanted it to be high-quality yet very economical."

Meet Kenny Friedman of Smonk You: Kenny's wife is also a Montessori educator and wanted to practice what she preaches in their son Miloh's bedroom. You can get a peek of Miloh's room in our post and read and see more at Smonk You.
