Create a dinosaur-themed bedroom
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.
