Today I am talking 'Lights' in the kids rooms.
Growing up as a navy brat, I did not pay much attention to the houses we lived in. The furniture was all provided by the Navy...and was the same no matter which city we lived in. The houses were temporary residences before we moved on.
Hey, it was a good life. But did not give me leave to desire anything special in my room or decorate it in anything more than celebrity posters. I had a bed, a desk and chair, a window for some lovely natural light, a ceiling fan and a light source. What more does a kid need anyways?
Pride in one's room, that's what.
And pride comes with having the little things that make a big difference. I would probably still think twice before spending hundreds of dollars on a chandelier, but I cannot deny that when I do something special in my home, I love showing it off.
I have handpicked 10 of my favorite lights in kid's spaces. Half the fun in decorating kid's rooms is in the whimsical designs you can get away with. The balloon themed lights designed by Boris Klimek is a case in point.
Most table lamps have, more or less, the same shape of stand and shade. Embellishment is added to give it a theme, like a basketball or safari animals at the bottom or frills on the shade. Here is a slightly different take on the same theme. Such a world of difference for a little girl who loves dolls.
If wall sconces are up your alley, you will enjoy matching these sconces to your decor too. Whether you go for the elegant cottage look...(I love the details such as the cat climbing on the side of the door)
...or the nursery oriented Humpty Dumpty theme.
There are other factors that you need to take into consideration when finalizing the kids room lighting. Natural light, Energy conservation and Safety are just some of the topics we discuss in detail here.
How far are you willing to go to decorate your child's room? Do you have a fancy and funky light or perhaps you are a diy-er (is that a word?) and have created your own fabulous designs. Go ahead and add your links here or you could also give an entire write up on our site.
