Kids spaces that scream style
Hi there! You might want to check out some of our more recent articles on shopping for great kids’ furniture in Singapore. Head on over to our story on where to buy bunk beds, the coolest furniture stores for children, and where to pick up a stylish rug in Singapore!
Wondering how to bliss out your baby room or pull-off a terrific toddler room transformation? You need to know the best children’s stores in Singapore. We donned our kiddie koolhunter hats, bent the ears of real mums, and trekked to our fave shops to get the low down on the latest trends, and how to achieve them.
Back to basics
“We wanted to keep the furniture in the nursery simple and clean,“ says Annett, mother to Christopher, 22 months. Clean, white pieces are a great way to build the basics of your child’s nursery, and if those pieces can grow and adapt with your child, they can be an investment worth taking time to consider. Local favourite Ni-Night’s range of beds and bunks are made in Vietnam from durable materials. They’re finished in white, child-friendly paint, meaning that they stand the test of time. Now available in Singapore and exclusive to Mothercare, Silvercross has long been associated with classic design. The Silvercross Nostalgia Cot Bed not only converts from cot to bed, but also includes underbed storage, making it ideal for condo living.
Now that you’ve got basic building blocks in place, accent your child’s bedrooms with the latest looks. “We’ve found that by using accents like framed squares of wallpaper, bright stools and bedding, we can change the feel of the kids’ bedrooms based on our style and their changing tastes,” says Jacinta Montgomery, mum to Ivy, 5, and Alistair, 17 months. Trending right now are right geometric patterns, tribal prints and fabrics that pop with shapes and colour, stimulating your child’s imagination (and appealing to more adult sensibilities!) We can’t go part Korla Home when it comes to on trend fabrics.
“Storage is obviously a major consideration with two young daughters but I like it to reflect our whole family’s style, not just the littlest ones,” says Daniela Hardwick, mum to Gabriela 4 and Isla 2 years. We love the Ikea Stuva storage bench that can be accessorized with bright fabrics and cushions, meaning that it does double duty as both a toy box and reading seat. Bright, soft baskets are a great way to dress up a wooden bookshelf – plus your kids will love using them for treasures like toy cars, shells and marbles.
