Decorating a kids’ room is one of the hardest jobs that you will ever come across. Even the best among us fail when it comes to getting it right. It demands a balance between aesthetics and ergonomics and there are times when a style that you have simply not thought about before seems absolutely ‘perfect’ for the dream kids’ room. Colorful, cozy and inviting, modern Mediterranean style embraces the best of modern functionality with Mediterranean overtones that feel pleasing and enchanting. A vivacious blend of cultures and finishes, this is a style that will surely elevate the appeal of your kids’ room to a whole new level!
Of course, the tricky part is undoubtedly getting it spot on. This demands a special amount of care and if you have a tween or teen at your home, then taking their inputs is absolutely essential before you proceed any further. Unlike the popular perception, Mediterranean style kids’ rooms are neither dated nor monotonous. They are full of life and personality and give you an opportunity to try out an amazing array of patterns, finishes and colors. Exciting and unique, this is the perfect way to move away from the crowd and do so in a curated, brilliant manner. Enjoy!
One color that never goes out of fashion in the kids’ room is pink and in the girls’ room it is almost a must. Pink is a color that works well with Mediterranean style as well. If you love Moroccan overtones, then adding lantern style lighting inspired by Middle Eastern design is a great way to further accentuate the style. Pink, textured walls are absolutely perfect for the modern Mediterranean kids’ room. They bring a certain sense of brightness to the setting and you can even keep the rest of the room neutral while using an accent pink wall to get the job done. Pastel pinks coupled with brighter shades also make a big visual impression here.
Finding the Right Balance
We love how many of the inspirations here find that elusive balance between celebrating the style they love and modernity that is undeniable at every turn. The best option here is to create a backdrop that is flexible and will easily adapt to changing trends. Even if you are in love with the Mediterranean theme now, your kid might soon find it tiring. Simply remove the wall decals, alter a few of the furniture pieces and give the lighting a makeover to move away from the Mediterranean and more towards the contemporary. Of course, a bedroom like the one in dashing, dark green below can easily be shaped into a tween and teen bedroom as years pass by.
Beds, Drapes and More
This is definitely the easiest approach when it comes to dipping your toes into a style that you are not too sure about. Mediterranean motifs brought in through bedding, lighting fixtures, drapes and other accessories give you an easy way out as seasons pass by. We love the idea of custom beds thought that force you to commit to the style more permanently and give the Mediterranean kids’ room a whimsical, magical vibe.
