Kid's Room Design Trends for 2012!

In her latest article for, Rosenberry Rooms’ owner, Susie Fougerousse comments on the trends in design for children’s spaces this year. One of Susie’s favorite things about designing kids’ rooms is that there are no rules or limitations when it comes to designing a space for a child, you can really just have fun. She also explains that although there are always hot colors and popular patterns, most children’s themes never really go out of style, they sometimes simply need a refresher!

With the help of some other creative minds like Aaron Christensen of Embellishments Kids, Naomi Alon and Gerri Panebianco of Little Crown Interiors and Katy Mimari of Caden Lane, you will find a few fresh takes on these classic motifs. Also, make sure to check out the full article (plus photo inspiration) over on!

Circus Charm

“The darling of the Pinterest crowd birthday themes- Circus, will edge its way off the cake table and into the kiddies rooms. The big top combination of eclectic patterns, animal motifs, vintage typography and the classic stripe will charm the little ones. The market’s dazzling array of iron cribs and traditional wooden crib styles will lend nicely to this fun and dynamic theme. Honey toned yellows, teal blues, grayed greens and faded reds are the incoming colors of the circus fans. But don’t be surprised if you see circus themes in soft pastels and unexpected color ways. Sorry clowns, you’re still too scary to be chic again. Maybe next year.” – Aaron Christensen

Science Style

“We’ve seen old school items like maps and globes play heavily into children’s decor, now it’s time to broaden the mind through the other sciences. The addition of biology, ecology, entomology and zoology will compliment the geology trend and bring brains, as well as beauty, to kids room design. Plants, bugs, molecules, hexagons and all things scientific are garnering interest. Brilliant minded rooms will call out for all the colors of the rainbow, in muted tones.” – Aaron Christensen

Forest Flair

“Moms, Dads and designers alike will applaud the trending of Mother Nature’s graphic palette going beyond the tree silhouette and birds, birds and more birds (yes, that includes owls). Forest friends like the fox, bear and raccoon are traveling into the scene and they’re bringing all kinds of patterns with them. You’ll see more wood grain, colorful florals, botanicals and oversized retro variations of plaid mixing in with the funky geometrics we see now. Decor items with a simple, made at summer camp feeling to them will also capture our hearts.” – Aaron Christensen

Chevron Chic

Chevron has definitely made a name for itself in the design world this year. This retro zigzag design has been updated with current colors and is showing up everywhere in children’s rooms from the floors to the walls. “The mod print brings a bold statement on rugs, curtains and bedding and is an easy way to add a pop of color to any room design,” according to bedding designer Katy Mimari of Caden Lane.

Fun Fonts

The personalize-it craze is another trend in kids’ room design that is here to stay. Naomi Alon and Gerri Panebianco, the design team that makes up Little Crown Interiors, a full-service interior design firm, say that finding new and fresh ways to display a child’s name is one of the year’s biggest trends. Update this idea by trying new things like an oversized wall monogram as the focal point of the room or using the classic wooden wall letters but in fun, innovative fonts for a fresh take on a tried-and-true trend.

Looking forward to seeing what 2013 has in store! Happy decorating!
