Before & After: A Cute Camping-Themed Kids Bedroom
For anyone who loves camping, the outdoors, or very cute design details, this Before & After of a young boy’s room is for you. The color palette and designs are young and fun, but will grow with the boy as he gets older. And the room features plenty of steal-able ideas and inspiration for folks of all ages!
From designer Lia Griffith, of Lia Griffith Media:
Creating a children’s bedroom design that won’t grow old in less than a year can be tricky. Our teammate Anna wanted to update her son’s room in a theme that suited him and his adventurous nature now and for the next five years! The idea of creating a camping-themed bedroom seemed ideal and we had a blast picking out the most perfect furniture from Hayneedle and complementing those pieces with a range of our own fun DIY projects.We began by choosing our color palette. Wanting to think outside the box we chose a strong palette of navy blue, fire truck red, and soft grey with a sprinkling of forest green and woody brown for good measure. A great room design has as much to do with texture as color and so we incorporated items made from wood, galvanized metal, and faux fur to make the room work. For me, a well-designed room includes lots of little details that come together to perfectly complement one another.
Our handmade felt bunting, EXPLORE banner, Great Outdoors wall hanging, and Camp Adventures flag are the perfect felt additions to our room. And our alphabet poster and furniture decals add that little touch of handmade that every rooms needs to make it your own. Of course, a few DIY felt projects are a must for our team so we made an adorable moose head and campfire for those added soft details. When you are designing your own room, think about balancing textures, colors and prints in the same way.
