As your child gets older, they begin to develop interests and dreams that you may never have imagined for them. If your child begins to develop an interest in clothes, the fashion industry, and fashion design, you may not know what you can do to support their interests and goals. When the time comes to update their bedroom decor, you may wish to incorporate your child's love of fashion and design into their room's decorating scheme. However, you may not know where to start in the decorating process. Here are a few ways that you can incorporate your child's love of fashion design into their room.
Make a Corner of the Room into a Sewing Station
One of the best ways that you can encourage your child's love of fashion design is to convert a portion of their bedroom into a sewing station. The first step to do so is to buy them a new sewing machine. A new sewing machine will give your child the best tools possible to construct their own clothing and experiment with their design aesthetic.
In addition to the new sewing machine, your child will need a stable desk or table to house the new sewing machine. Be sure that the table is not too low and has a plenty of leg room and space underneath to accommodate the foot pedal for the sewing machine.
You may also want to incorporate a cutting table to cut material and patterns as a part of the sewing station, or give them a table that extends using fold-out leaves to give them space to do their cutting. You may also want to provide them with a high-quality, adjustable dress form to pin patterns and see their designs come to life on a human frame.
Make the Space Inspirational
Nothing is less inspiring to creativity and design than blank white walls. So, as a part of your bedroom redecoration project, you will want to add color and pattern to your child's walls.
Consider adding stripes of different widths to your child's wall painting. This will add variety to your child's walls. You can mix and match different colors or you can use different shades of the same colors like reds and pinks, blues and greens, and the like.
Adding fashion-related artwork and photographs to your child's decor will also help to inspire. For example, you could add photos of fashion icons such as models, designers, or movie stars to their walls. You can also choose classic artwork by famous artists that can inspire creativity like Monet, Picasso, Degas and others.
Now that you have a few ideas about the ways that you can incorporate your child's love of fashion design into their room decor, you can get to work at redecorating their room. They will be delighted to see that you are supportive of their interests and dreams.
