Kids’ Room Ideas: Decorate a Reading Nook for the Adventurer

Use materials and patterns from nature to create a sense of adventure

We’ve created a cozy reading corner for children where a tipi, crowned with a pennant banner made out of wallpaper samples from our Storytime collection, creates the perfect starting ground for exploration. The wallpaper we chose as a feature wall – Wild Willows – shows a beautiful forest scenery, and in combination with well made wooden toys, and accessories in durable natural materials, the setting is in place to have a great adventure together.


Explore local thrift stores and vintage shops for worn but beautiful objects like these wooden animals.


Soft fabrics will enhance the natural feeling. Add braided baskets for toys, blankets, and books. Or keep them safe in storage boxes that imitate nature in a playful way – like these boxes in the shape of snow-covered mountains.


The pennant banner adds to the playfulness of the reading corner! Make use of old wallpaper scraps, or wallpaper samples (that you can order on The banner is a fun project to have together, and easy to make, even for kids, with the instructions in our guide: Rooms for Kids – 3 Styles for Children’s Rooms.
