Our blogs have given you the inspiration to provide a space where your little ones can sleep in their very own unique Soak&Sleep filled bedroom. We’ve even helped out with those tricky teens who couldn’t possibly be living in an “uncool” young room. But what about those children who haven’t quite reached their teens yet, but have outgrown their kiddy themed bedroom. It’s that tricky in-between, the “tween” age.
Well, Little Soak&Sleep was specifically made to be adaptable to all ages (some of us here at head office bought items for ourselves) so we’ve made this blog to help inspire those parents looking to buy new bedding for their tweens. Taking items from our core Soak&Sleep ranges in addition to our new kid’s collection, we’ve come up with 3 shop the look inspirations.
For the first look, dress the bed in our Blue Allure 100% Pure French Linen. To break up the blue on the bed, swap a Blue Allure pillowcase with one of our Blue Stripe 100% Pure French Linen pillowcases. The blue stripes that run across the soft white base look perfect against the plain blue underneath. If our Dark Space or Little Circus bed linen sets are slightly too young for your tween, don’t rule out the amazing accessories that match them. Use our Dark Space Stars and Planets Throw, keeping some youth within the room yet adding style and texture at the same time. We’ve also added our Big Top Blanket into the mix, adding a pop of colour to keep bedtime fun.
Our second tween styled look includes our blue Chambray Pintuck Bed Linen, matched with our Blush Pink 100% Pure French Linen. We think these colours really complement each other. Layer up the throws to create a more textured appearance. Starting with our Classic Cotton Quilted Bedspreads in white, layer this up with our Magical Lurex Throw with Clouds over the top. Similarly to the first look, this keeps an element of youth in the look without looking overly young. To keep with the magical theme pop a Cloud Cushion and the look is complete.
The final look can easily reach the older end of the tween bracket. We love this monochrome look, a design which is less likely to date over time. Add pops of colour through ornaments and accessories. To create this look, dress the bed in our New Light Grey and Midnight Grey 100% Pure French Linen. Depending on the overall room design, you can mix and match these colours in whichever way you see fit. To add texture and style to the bed use our Spotty Cushion Cover.
All looks shown above are paired with our Wilton Bed in white, this bed is also available in black if you wish to start with a darker base to build colour and texture upon.
The best part about these tween looks is that they can all be easily tweaked to become younger or older depending on the age of your children and the look you are wanting to achieve. If on a budget, it may be an idea to redesign your children’s bedroom with an older age in mind, given how quickly our children are growing up these days!
We hope you enjoy using both our core Soak&Sleep and Little Soak&Sleep ranges to style your children’s bedrooms. We would love to see how you style them, so be sure to tag us in any social posts using @soakandsleepUK on Facebook, @soakandsleep on Twitter and instagram.
