How to Use Colour in a Child’s Bedroom


Tigerlily 1


There’s something so fresh and vibrant about a clean white background with bright pops of colour. When we saw this children’s bedroom featured over at Tigerlilly Quinn we knew we had to share it with you.

Fritha uses bold primary colours for her son Wilf’s room. The gorgeous print shown in the picture above is homemade and has a special story behind it. “My partner Tom made this for me when we were first going out,” explained Fritha. “I had been away for the weekend in Cornwall. I came back home when he was at work and found this waiting for me. We use it now in Wilf’s room and it always brightens my day to see it.”

The funky bed comes from Kiddicare and is teamed up with a little two step ladder from IKEA.

“My friend Kimberly made this bunting for my babyshower,” Fritha told us. “I love it – it’s so pretty! And the canvas is something painted by me just after I left uni. It’s funny to think that I am now using it for my son’s bedroom.”

Fritha used her skills as an illustrator to paint her son a tree mural when she was pregnant. It even includes leaves made from letters she wrote him each week. Wilf’s dad is also pretty creative, knocking up this stunning play kitchen for his first birthday. What a lucky boy!

The monochrome print featured in this picture complements the bright colour scheme perfectly. Don’t you just love how every piece in this room has its own story, but still ties beautifully together?

What’s your favourite part of the room?

We’d like to say a big thank you to Fritha from Tigerlilly Quinn for showing us around!

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at with any questions or comments.

Thank you!
