Most children are fans of panda bears with their distinctive black-and-white colouring and cuddly appearance. If your child is interested in pandas, it is fun to plan a bedroom that reveres the animal. If you are decorating for a teen, though, it is not just as easy to pull off a panda theme. To make the bedroom look like it belongs to a young adult and not a toddler, you need to balance the adorable panda accents with more sophisticated design features. Here are some of the ideas for decorating the kid’s room with a panda theme.
Keep It Subtle
You can fill the room with stuffed pandas with a little boy, panda-print bedding, panda stencils, and even a panda mural on the wall. It is not possible that a teen would go for that sort of look. Hold the panda elements detailed instead. Find a spot to view the things whether your teen has a cherished stuffed panda or ceramic panda figurines from her younger years. Otherwise, restrict the panda components in the space. To decorate the walls, use some framed images or artwork of pandas, but leave the rest of the space plain’s design.
Black And White
Their black-and-white colouring is perhaps the first thing that comes to mind when you think about pandas—using those colours as the foundation for the decorating plan for your teen. To paint the moulding, trim, and other architectural features in the room, go for a crisp white on the walls and use black. Try painting black-and-white stripes or polka dots if you would like to create an accent panel of the panda bears. However, since black and white are neutral, practically all other tones that your teen wants to serve as accent colours can be used. Red is the right choice since it is mostly used in Asian decor, and pandas are native, but it often goes well with a bold blue or hot pink.
Add Bamboo Accents
Pandas in the wild frequently feed on bamboo, so in a teen’s panda-themed bedroom, bamboo accessories are appropriate. Place a bamboo plant on the teen’s bookcase, desk, or nightstand in a black-and-white jar for a quick look. Bamboo, though, is used to create a range of home furnishings that can add texture and dimension to the design of your teen’s room. Attach bamboo blinds to the room and throw rugs. If you put it behind your teen’s bunk, a bamboo folding screen makes a perfect room divider for space or a simple accent wall.
Incorporate Asian Elements
In addition to the panda and bamboo accessories, you might want to integrate authentic elements into the room’s design to give the panda theme some grown-up flavour. Lace paper lanterns around the ceiling for mood lighting in a black, white and red pattern; use battery-powered lanterns, so you do not have to think about wires, hang Asian-inspired fans or umbrellas alongside your teen panda bears or artwork. Artwork with these characters also offers a more mature feel for a teen to the panda theme.
