Freedom have created a beautiful kids bedroom range and I was excited to host the launch event last week and see it for myself. The crowd of mummy bloggers who attended all loved the collections and I don’t think I was the only one thinking that a few pieces would be great for grownups too!
Star of the show is the Hideout bed (above), which at $999 for a king single made of solid oak, is great value. You can choose between the canopy cover shown or another tulle version, to complete the look ($250 each). It’s part of the Luca the Lion story, which features cushions, soft toys, throws, linen and more.
In fact, with the creation of these different ‘stories’ including Ella and Elephant, Dream Cloud and Lady Llama, Freedom have made it really easy for you walk in store and pick up everything you need to pull together a stylish and playful kids room.
I love the classic and not too kiddy vibe of the collections, meaning you can incorporate the style of the rest of your home into your kids’ rooms. It also means that the look you create will last several years. And by investing in quality big ticket items like beds, you can then easily change things up with new homewares and linen if you want to. The Bobbie bed above ($799) in king single would work just as well as a first ‘big girl bed’ as it would in a teenager’s bedroom.
As a mum of boys I loved that there were as many options for boys as girls, as well as plenty of great unisex pieces.
The beds deserve particular mention as they’re not only great value, but several incorporate that much-needed storage. The upholstered Andi bed (below) comes with drawers or a gas lift and in a choice of colours.
The Poppy bed (shown in timber, third image down) also comes with an optional trundle for sleepovers.
As for the pieces I’d be stealing for myself, I love the handmade Banda basket, the pineapple basket, the polka dot throw and the Story quilt cover set.
The wall hangings are also great and a safe choice, for little people’s walls with no chance of injury if they happen to fall off!
The new Freedom Kids range is in stores and online now.
