In the Just for Kids Room Decor Challenge, we asked the Minted Community to design décor for kids’ rooms and nurseries. Every child dreams of having a room as unique as they are — from princesses and pirates to sports and stars, we were looking for décor that would help kids’ express themselves and create their perfect spaces. This was such a fun one! Congratulations to the special prize winners below who stood out in each of these categories:
Out of the Box Award for the freshest and most innovative take on room décor that you wouldn’t see anywhere but Minted
“Globetrotter” by Lulaloo
We fell in love with Maria’s adorable boy on his magic paper airplane. We love every unique detail from her watercolor stripes to her very cute little aviator and his bug buddy.
Boys Only Award for the best room décor created with a boy’s perspective in mind. 2 prizes will be awarded — one for 2-5 year old boys and one for 6-9 year old boys
- Award for 2-5 year old boys
“Dragon Breath” by Danielle Hartgers
Danielle has such a knack for outstanding children’s designs! Her sweet, stylized dragon strikes a nice balance between friendly and fearful (when you need people to stay out of your room of course). We love the dragon scales that carry across her bunting banner.
- Award for 6-9 year old boys
“Space is for Kids” by Matt Millette
We all know plenty of older kids who would love to surround themselves with this space-aged room décor. Matt’s soaring rockets and distinctive planets are wonderfully simplified. This is one very cool, very clean design!
Girls Only Award for the best room décor created with a girl’s perspective in mind. 2 prizes will be awarded — one for 2-5 year old girls and one for 6-9 year old girls
- Award for 2-5 year old girls
“Sweet Mermaid” by peetie design
Lisa’s beaming mermaid stole our hearts! Every detail adds something special from her detailed seashells to her waving seaweed and distressed texture. Lovely!
- Award for 6-9 year old girls
“Ahoy, Girlie!” by Up Up Creative
Ahoy, all ye pirate lasses! Julie has created the perfect room décor to add a splash of the (friendly) high seas to your room. We love her stylized little pirate and “love”ly skull and crossbones.
Older Kids Award for the best customizable room décor that doesn’t feel too “babyish,” aimed at older boys and girls aged 10-14
“Art Studio” by Fig and Cotton Paperie
Erin’s “Art Studio” would appeal to kids of any age. Her bold, vibrant paint splashes are both happily festive and a bit edgy. Those rich colors would add plenty of personality to any room!
Boy’s Nursery Award for the best décor for a baby boy’s nursery
“The Amazing Circus” by Karidy Walker
Karidy’s room décor brings all the joy of the circus in an unusual, soothing blue color palette. Her gentle animals and bold patterns would be perfect for a little boy’s nursery. Plus, that has got to be the cutest strongman we’ve ever seen!
Girl’s Nursery Award for the best décor for a baby girl’s nursery
“Little Blessing” by Oma N. Ramkhelawan
This soft, pastel room décor would be a beautiful complement to any little girl’s nursery. Oma’s florals are classic, yet unique and her hand-drawn look feels so warm. We love the little dots around the initial.
