Interior Designer EDIT: Child's Bedroom

By Jenna Ridley

Interior Designer Edit: Child's Bedroom
 Inject fun, colour and playfulness with cushions, rugs, artwork and lighting – all things that can be changed inexpensively. 

When decorating a child’s bedroom, bear in mind that time is going to flash by in the blink of an eye! Try and decorate with a 7-10 year window in mind. Why purchase children’s furniture when for the most part adult-size items will serve them longer? Try to avoid decorating with their favourite TV character, which they could quickly grow out of, and steer clear of matching furniture sets which will date the room. Consider using children’s bedrooms as extra guest bedrooms by including a sofa bed or trunk bed. Inject fun, colour and playfulness with cushions, rugs, artwork and lighting – all things that can be changed inexpensively. Orange is a great choice for a child’s room as it is considered to promote confidence, independence and communication and is supposed to put children and friends at ease. Encourage reading by displaying their favourite books and personalise their space with their nic-nacs. Think more long-term on the pricier items such as the bed, wardrobe, sofa bed and desk. Adding natural materials such as wood and air-purifying plants will also contribute to your child’s well-being in their room. It’s really important to get your little ones involved – ask them their favourite colours and what they think of a limited number of items you have selected. Above all, make sure you have lots of fun together!


Jenna Ridley

Jenna’s decision to set-up Jenna Ridley Interiors and pursue a career in interior design was borne out of a lifelong passion for creating ‘home’. Having lived in the UK, France and now Switzerland, she always felt a strong need to create a welcoming and nurturing home, regardless of location. Prior to her career in interior design, she was a corporate tax lawyer and left a promising career to focus full-time on her first love: interiors. Jenna’s own personal style is heavily influenced by her time living in Paris, but she appreciates many other design styles and works closely with clients to give them the style they most desire. Jenna serves clients in Switzerland, primarily Basel, and recently launched an online service for people based in the UK.
