pattern adventures: an abstract kids' room!

For this month's Pattern Adventures we're mixing things up by going abstract! We brought in fun shapes with a simple DIY dresser that anyone can create, complemented with other subtle patterns, and lots of bright colors. Here's how we did it...

Pattern Adventures: An Abstract Playroom

We love the idea of an abstract pattern in a kids' playroom or bedroom. It's also a great way to incorporate your kids in designing their own room because cutting and placing abstract shapes is easier for little ones and they can place the shapes wherever their creativity sees fit!

Using a simple white dresser, simply cut out abstract shapes onto contact paper and place them randomly on the drawers. Depending on their age, kids can help cut or simply help place the shapes and smooth them into the surface.

Since the dresser is the focal piece and abstract patterns can be a tad overbearing if used too much, we kept the rest of the decor more on the simpler side and topped off the dresser some some great wall art to inspire little ones today and for years to come!
