Heidi Klum Wants To Give You Decorating Tips

Heidi Klum’s Tips for Decorating a Child’s Bedroom (Check out the New York townhouse bedroom she decorated for Shutterfly, pictured.) 


  1. Don’t over-decorate as you don’t want too much clutter. Storage spaces everywhere are important.  Also, make sure you put them at a height where kids can pull them out and clean up after themselves.

  2. Have items of clothing in your kid’s closet that you can mix and match. When designing my Truly Scrumptious collection, I wanted to make sure that each piece could pair together while still looking cute.

  3. Involve your child in the decorating process. Let them express their personality in their bedroom. Allow them to choose some of the furniture, décor and colors. They’ll enjoy the space more if they can take pride in knowing that they helped decorate it.

  4. Celebrate your child’s creativity and successes. Decorate the room with their artwork, awards and pictures of their favorite activities.  Celebrate your child with fun photos and artwork that make them smile—that is why I used my children’s artwork as inspiration.  Shutterfly allows you to create beautiful canvas prints, mugs, pillows and more with your child’s artwork and photos.

  5. When designing your child’s room, always think of something fun and whimsical that would go along with the initial design or color scheme – When designing my Boho-Harmony themed room, I made sure to incorporate fun decorations like flowers, butterflies, and birds because I knew little girls would love it!

  6. Keep the space open. Children need plenty of space to move, play, and grow, so design the room with lots of floor space for your active little one.

  7. Whimsical accessories are wonderful finishing touches and there are so many to choose from—the possibilities are endless. You never want a nursery or a kid’s room to look too dull—the more to look at the better!
