Design a circus room for growing kids
As your little one transitions from your carefully-designed nursery to a big-kid room, you might find yourself at a loss for design themes. Young kids often ask for character-driven decor, but there are other options available. Circus-inspired decor is colorful, whimsical and incorporates animals — a perennial kids’ favorite. Create a circus room for your little monkey, and let them have fun sleeping — and playing — under the big top.
Circus wall art
Art prints are one of the simplest things to change about a room, even without changing the paint color. Let your little boy know you think he’s the strongest guy you know with the Vintage Strong Man Circus Print (Rosenberry Rooms, $59). If he’s more of an animal lover, let him imagine himself in the Junior Lion Tamer Circus Print (Etsy, $18). For a little added whimsy, Big Top Circus Peel and Stick Appliqués can be repositioned at any time, so kids can move them around during playtime (Rosenberry Rooms, $16).
Every circus needs special lighting
Lamps and overhead lights can really pull together a themed room, and a circus room certainly deserves fun lights! The Cotton Candy Circus Alphabet Lamp is a sweet addition to any dresser (Rosenberry Rooms, $138). For a more dramatic detail, consider the Circus Time Wide Chrome Ceiling Light (Lamps Plus, $200).
A fun seating option
As children get a little older, having their own little seating areas can help encourage quiet time. Just because preschool and early elementary-aged kids are starting to drop their naps doesn’t mean they don’t need down time during their busy days. The Circus Nod Chair is cozy, comfortable and has a pocket on the back that’s perfect for favorite books (Land of Nod, $129.)
Build a cozy corner
Every circus room needs its own big top, and the Red and White Circus Tent is perfect (Etsy, $164). The hoop tent can be used indoors or outdoors, making it a versatile piece that can be used for room decor or larger parties. If your circus star is a die-hard fan of pink, you might want the Haba Room Tent (Amazon, $250).
Have fun with the circus theme
A circus room is a fun way to transition between a nursery and a tween room, so let your kids have some input and remember how fun and whimsical the circus can be. Any of these pieces can be used alone or in a crazy, colorful collection of circus fun, and your growing child will love having a new space of his own.
