Cool Art Ideas for a Kid’s Room

StylePost Category - StyleStyle - Post Category - Style For HomeStyle For Home

Liven up your kiddos’ rooms with some gorgeous art!

Children’s art…not the scribblings and random pieces of card with weird things all stuck to it that come home from preschool. No, I’m thinking more of art that you might want to consider for your children’s rooms.

There is a great array of beautiful art suitable for kids’ rooms. Children grow up so quickly (or so I’m told) that when it comes to decorating their rooms, be it art or bedlinen or wallpaper, if possible you want it to last until they are at least 12 years old, by which point they will probably be demanding their own version of interior decorating (when I was 12 I had Mum and Dad paint my room candy pink.  Hmm…).

For this reason, consider art that could hang not only in their rooms but in the rest of your home as well, because when they decide all they want is Smash Hits posters of Madonna and Duran Duran (or whatever the kids are into these days), the art that you placed in their rooms when they were 5…? It’s yours now.

A Danish painter who produces her work in France on canvas or paper and gives you a choice of size for each of her paintings. Very cool. Pictured: “La Négresse” and “Le Léopard”.

Vintage Posters from Letitia Morris

Vintage posters are a fun, affordable and timeless form of art that is easy to buy online. Letitia Morris is an Australian based shop known for their quality original posters. The range is vast and they can arrange shipping. Choose carefully and think about the age of your children – as nice as a poster’s design might be, you don’t necessarily want an ad for vodka hanging on their walls. Or maybe you do. Each to their own! Pictured: “Danone” and “Jeunesse au Plein Air” by Morvan Hervé.
