Does your toddler have a
passion for all things prehistoric? These dinosaur-themed
room ideas will inspire junior paleontologists.
Harlequin's whimsical, modern Jolly Jurassic wallpaper and
fabric range from Allium (main image, www.alliuminteriors.co.nz)
suits babies through to active schoolboys. Older boys will
gravitate to the more sophisticated palette of the Dinosaur Dreams
bedding range (below right) from Thread Design (www.threaddesign.co.nz).
Dinosaur Dreams cushion $72 from www.threaddesigns.co.nz.
Dino bean bag cover $85 from www.snugasabug.co.nz.
Choose complementary colours
Many of the dinosaur-themed accessories on the
market are bright and colourful, perfect to grow with your little
explorer. Try not to go overboard - clean white is a perfect
backdrop for cheerful curtains and fun wallpaper, so definitely mix
and match prints to create interest. For accessories, we love the
idea of using wooden letters (similar from Spotlight) painted in
complementary colours like (clockwise from bottom left) Resene
Crash Hot, Resene Yabbadabbadoo, and Resene Shooting Star.
