From nail polish to Back to School stationery, unicorns are everywhere this year. If your little one has got the unicorn bug, here is some inspo for creating them their very own unicorn-themed bedroom.
When choosing a theme, it can be easy to get caught up on one detail rather than creating a whole world for your little one to play in. For example, putting unicorn pictures on every spare surface you can find is just going to look busy and chaotic. Instead, create the world of a unicorn! We’re talking forest murals, glittery blue rugs that look like magical woodland pools, and the odd unicorn hiding here and there… This will be much more exciting for your little one as well as looking far better.
Use colours and materials
That being said, when creating a unicorn theme you don’t have to be too literal. Take inspiration from colours and materials instead; pinks, blues, purples, and whites are all associated with unicorns, as well as rainbows, iridescence, and glitter. This Princess Sparkle upholstered bed would be a perfect fit, for example, as would this gorgeous Heather herringbone throw.
Grab a cheat sheet
Artistic skills not up to a full-blown mural? Panic not! There are plenty of wall stickers and decals you can download online that do all the hard work for you. All you have to do is find the unicorn decals you like best, download them, and send them to a vinyl printer who can have them blown up and ready to install on your little one’s wall in no time. Easy and stress-free!
When creating a themed room, it is important to bear in mind that children change their minds quickly and often! If you’ve got a little one who’s always moving on to the next big thing, avoid permanent murals and go for unicorn-themed accessories instead. Start with a neutral base of Scandi-chic white furniture like this Jubilee single bed or drawer chest and then accessorise the room with unicorn bedding or other pretty touches like this unicorn playhouse to get the theme across. This will keep the room from becoming too much of an assault on the senses as well as having the added benefit of being easily swapped out for the next theme they fall in love with!
