Bring the trees, animals and adventure into your child’s room by creating a Great Outdoors theme! Here are a few tips on how to create a natural woodland environment indoors.
Children’s Bedding – To start, I love our very popular George Bedding Collection by Serena & Lily. The George Duvet features slate seersucker with goldenrod piping that will work well for a child at any age. Also, this classic bedding is perfect if you want to accessorize the room with animal decor, natural woodland decor, or a mix of both!
Furniture – This bedding looks great with our Treasure Collection of kids furniture by AP Industries. The Treasure Collection is made of solid birch and comes in the finish of your choice! For a real outdoors feel I would suggest the amaretto or camel finish. My favorite piece in the collection is the Treasure Bookcase Headboard Bed. This bed combines comfort and versatility so your child can sleep well and stay organized. The bookcase headboard is a great storage addition without taking up too much space so your child can have enough room to relax and play.
Decor and Lighting – For a younger child I would suggest going with more playful colors and friendly animal prints. For example, the Friendly Forest growth chart by Oopsy Daisy is a great addition to an outdoor-themed room and makes tracking your child’s growth a fun activity for both parent and child. Oopsy Daisy has many other examples of nature-themed prints, such as the Ants Canvas Reproduction and the Tree Buddies Canvas. For a tween or teen, I would go with a more natural environment with a modern twist. For example, accent with Silver Numbers Wooden Wall Clock and our Modern Organics Three Light Pendant with Bamboo Stem Material in Polished Chrome. My favorite accent for this room would have to be the Stump Accent Table or Stool by Jane Gray for Stray Dog Designs. This piece is great as a bedside table or to use as extra seating and looks as if it came right out of the forest!
Playtime – Entertain your children for hours by adding the Great Plains Teepee to their room. These teepees are made from genuine canvas and are paintable, perfect for your little artist or adventure-seeker. Your child’s great outdoors themed room isn’t complete without animals! McNuttie the Squirrel from BlaBla makes for an excellent playmate and snuggle buddy.
