Hi I'm Karla with Karla Dreyer Design, decor expert, and this is DecorWithLove TV So if you have kids this video is foryou.
Whether you're decorating a nursery or decorating a bedroom for ten year old.
There are some common elements you need when decorating your kids room.
I'm going to share my top five tips with you.
So tip number one when your decorating your kids room is reallywant to think long term.
And this is probably the hardest is when they're babies, I know it was even for my girls when they're babies, you want it to be cute and babyish, but that last such a short period of time.
And even if you're decoratingfor say my youngest now is four even say decorating a room her I want tothink long-term.
I want to think what she gonna be like when she's six or she's eight or she's ten.
Because I don't know about you but even loving design, redecorating mykids rooms it's not something I want to do all the time.
So you want to thinkabout choosing items that can last and stand the test of time as your child grows.
So tip number two when decorating your kids room is you want to get a rug.
Now I like a rug in most bedrooms but in say a master bedroom I don't think you have to have a rug but in a kids room I think you do have to have a rug.
For two reasons.
One, from a design perspective I thinkit's a great jumping off point if you find a rug that you love you can pull alot of colors and ideas from there.
Two is that kids are always on the floor so ifthey're playing or they have friends over and play they're always on the floor.
Soconsider the rug from a design perspective but also from a functionalperspective you want something soft and welcoming that they can play on.
So tipnumber three when decorating your kids room is storage.
Storage is king, or in our case storage is queen.
Kids seem to have a lot of stuff and nomatter how much you recycle or give away there's more that seems to come in.
So think of storage everywhere you can.
Some of my favourite things to do for storage isuse unconventional baskets and by that I mean I think you can overpay forsome of the kid made bins and baskets.
Just go into a store and things that you mightuse for yourself or things that make use for a laundry basket, some of those bigwoven ones, they come in different colour, now are great to throw in all the kids stuff and a lot of them come with lids.
Another thing is books which I love that kids have books but again theycan be everywhere.
Couple of my favorite tips for that isI've just gotten a simple book ledge, sorry little picture shelf and put it above my kidsbeds and they can put all their books on there as well.
So storage is big, can't forget it.
Baskets and the picture shelf or books have been my two favourite things when decorating a kids room.
So tip number four when decorating your kids room and ifyou have really young kids you may not be thinking of this yet but trust me it comes up super quick is kids art.
Once they start doing art there is a ton of art, and it's awesome,they're proud of themselves, we're proud of them they want to display it, we wantto display it but it can get overwhelming of where to put it.
So you want to think of this within your design and within your wall space.
So a couple ideas is a cork board.
Of course you could just get a simple cork board covering it in a fabric would be nice and then you can display different pictures on there.
Another idea that I've done that I quite like is found an old quite large vintage frame took out the middle of it, hung the frame and then different pictures went kinda in and out that the girls brought home.
You can also just hang a string withclothes pegs along it.
I like this one it's really cute and then the kids can just clip up their art from there.
So think about art you can also do a gallery wall as well withdifferent frames and change it up.
That may be a little more tedious but when you're thinking of the design make sure you incorporate your kids art in it.
And tip number five when decorating your kids room.
Don't paint it.
And so if you've painted now don't freakout but don't paint it their favorite color.
The reason I say this is that their favoritecolor could change and painting is sort of inexpensive and easy we say sometimes it is, it can be a pain and we don't always do it.
So instead think about walldecals.
I think that's a great way to change up the kids room change up the look.
Maybe they're into elephants at the time or into maps of the world or into space orstars or whatever it may be, or into certain colours you can find it in the wall decal.
Have it in the room, when it changes take them off and replace it.
So I hope these tips have been helpful when decorating your kids room.
I know it's gotten me inspired to do a few changes in my girl's rooms as well.

Minimal textures and strong geometric forms, neutral colors accented with a solitary bold colour along with polished finishes and asymmetrical balance are key discovering features of modern style interiors. A word which popular to describe modern style is sleek, and there is not a lot of clutter or accessories involved with a modern day style. The style is contemporary modern style but preserves a hot line through chosen finishes and color range used. You should remember that designers blend different elements from many decorating styles together, but the essential thing is to identify the core aspects of each one. Soft modern interiors are characterized by neutral elements accentuated by bold color, or glamorous elements, such as beading and glass, but the focus is always the basic principles of line, form and form. Take elements of your preferred style and make your design so that you avoid over doing it. When it comes to modern style, essential things are smooth, clean and geometric shapes and curvy lines. Line can be applied through the use of bold colour blocks, high ceilings, square edged furniture, linear wooden floors, floor mats, bare windows and geometric shapes in wall structure art and sculpture.
