Get the Look… White Children’s Bedroom

White Children's Bedroom

Elli writes… Living Etc. magazine is a trusted source for design inspiration. They’ve come up with this lovely fresh look for a children’s bedroom, where a bright white base is brought to life with fun primary coloured fabrics and accessories.

For a similar look…

AlphabetAlphabet Duvet Set

Punkin Patch offer this adorable appliquéd Alphabet Country Quilted Bedding (above left). It doesn’t come cheap at £125 for a quilt cover, two pillow shams and a single cover in toddler size, but at 100% cotton and machine washable, it’s not just for special occasions which might help justify the price tag. A budget alternative comes courtesy of The Little Trading Company. Your little one can count letters instead of sheep in her sleep with their 100% cotton embroidered Alphabet Duvet Set (above right). But move fast: it’s reduced in their clearance sale to £23 for the duvet cover and pillow case.


We love this contemporary owl print by Made With Love by Mrs Booth which has been printed on recycled paper using vegetable inks. £20 unframed from Not On the High Street. For other affordable artwork try Bold & Noble who we just featured, or check out our post on where to buy artwork for children’s living spaces.

The transparent Tam Tam Kristal (left) for £24.82 at Made In Design has a lid that can be removed so you can fill it up with goodies just like the picture. If you’re not fussed about storing anything in it, Habitat offers a more wallet-friendly sleek stackable stool (right) for £12 in white, red or black.

You can purchase similar vintage cots for around £30 from Winter’s Moon although you will need to call them up to check what fab finds they currently have.

Shop around on ebay and etsy for retro and vintage matryoshka sets or try Present Time’s quirky russian doll money boxes which start from £5.82 for a 24cm high one – they were £17.99 before so bargain-o-rama! Jansen & Co have designed these really cool sets of 5 babushka photo frames which you could slot pics of yourselves in for 24 euro (plus 5 for delivery) from POAA. They’re also available in birch or white. There also the very collectable Momji Dolls which are £10 each at Utility Design.

John Lewis stock an oversized (23cm diameter) Moo Alarm Clock in Friesian cow print for £14.50. Heals also do a great collection of alarm clocks with vintage and retro feels.

For rainbow-coloured accessories, Ikea has plenty to choose from in their children’s decoration range, including this modern twist on the traditional piggy bank, available in eye-popping turquoise, pink, yellow or red. The PS Kontant, as they’re known, are only £2.93 each. Tate gallery is also worth a look for bright contemporary children’s accessories.

Loopy Lu Green Lampshade

Finally, in keeping with the style of the bright lampshade is this Loopy-Lu which comes in a neon green (or black or white if you’re feeling more muted). It’s £10 off, reduced to £30 from Not On The High Street. Hunky Dory Home also does a great selection of lampshades including a russian doll one if you want to go all out.

For a similar hobby horse try Magic Pumpkins and Faery Dust or Luxeville.

  1. I love the white look and have a mission to find gorgeous items for the nursery that are in white instead of your usual beech etc. I’ve just come across Bam Bam toys – plush white leather toys with silver stitching. I’ve just purchased the Musical car from Children’s Salon for my little boy’s room.

    I would love to know of more white nursery items – my mission will continue
