A fairytale bedroom is the stuff of children’s dreams. Who are we kidding? It’s the stuff of our dreams too! Whether it’s inspired by their favourite animated film or their most treasured bedtime story, here’s how to add a touch of magic to your little one’s room.
Everyone knows that fairytale characters can very often be found in towers or little cottages in the woods. Give your little hero the best of both worlds with a Thuka Trendy 16 Cabin Bed. Part bunkbed, part playhouse this adorable sleeping space makes every bedtime an adventure, as well as giving children their very own hideaway just perfect for a treasure trove. If that’s not fairytale enough for you, why not transform the bed into an actual castle with a Thuka Trendy Ladder Tower? And yes, that is a slide.
Finish off with some magical bedding like this fairy duvet set to really put the fairy in fairy tale.
The little mermaid had a grotto in which to keep all her things, Belle kept all her books neatly stored in the castle library, and Cinderella is famous for always cleaning – what we’re saying is that mess is a no-no in fairytale bedrooms. To keep yours tidy, employ some nifty fairytale themed storage solutions such as this Magic Garden toy box, fairy storage bags or a full-size double wardrobe so pretty that it’s guaranteed to be hiding the doorway to a magical land.
