Ideas for a Woodland-Themed Room
Now that we’ve saved the UK’s forests (yay for people power) I thought it was appropriate that we did a round-up of the best ideas for woodland-themed rooms – it seems that children’s designers’ love of this subject knows no bounds.
Let’s start with the walls. There’s a myriad of tree wallpapers out there, but few are as cool and contemporary as Miss Print’s Little Trees, £55 per 10m roll, which also comes in a choice of delicious colours. I’d personally opt for the monochrome version, above, so I could easily introduce artwork such as Mary Kilvert’s fabulous Autumn Leaves, (pictured top) £20.
Moving on to lighting – the wild pig is an unfairly neglected woodland animal. Let’s launch a campaign to get him featured more often, as on this Lush Designs lampshade, £35. And as you can never have too many lamps, or owls, this White Rabbit bone china light is a match made in heaven, £59. Loving the retro styling.
Is it a ride-on toy? Is it a chair? Is it a storage unit? It’s Mini Loom, a fantastically versatile piece of furniture from Estonian design company Fellin Furniture. For €123 at Kids Love Design you get to choose from seven different coloured fabrics.
In terms of textiles, I haven’t found bed linen to rival Club Geluk’s. Foxes on one side, deer on the reverse – what’s not to love? €49.50 for a duvet cover and pillowcase set. I couldn’t choose between two cushions, so here they both are. A screen-printed squirrel from Erin Flett, £24, and a felt log, £40, from My Imaginary Boyfriend (best company name ever?). I think they complement each other perfectly.
This storage basket from Mimi’Lou is just the right side of quirky to avoid being too cutesy, and features the requisite toadstool, €25.
Talking of which – this Pakhuis Oost hook is a must-have – €16.50.
and (my absolute favourite), Liam the Woodland Fox, $38 (plus $ p&p), made to order in California by Etsian Sleepy King.
