Let’s be honest, what kid (or grown up) wouldn’t secretly love to be a superhero? Thankfully, the bright, brash superhero style has been cloaked. Welcome to a brave new world.
After a hard day foiling villains and saving the world, every good superhero needs an equally awesome lair to hide out in. But if the idea of Spiderman bed linen and Lurex costumes leave you in a cold sweat then fear not, we’ve pulled together some of the most stylish and tasteful Superhero bedrooms to inspire you.
A simple mural is an easy and cost effective way to transform a room without the need to over-accessorise. The clean silhouette and muted colour of this Superman skyline, seen at Mommo design makes a perfect backdrop without taking over the room.
Superheroes are most definitely not just for boys, as demonstrated here by interior designer, Elisabeth Heier. We love how the Mini & Maximus Batgirl print injects an instant dose of rebellious cool into her daughter’s delicate, floral nursery.
We love the mustard yellow and mint green accents in this superhero-embellished boy’s room by Kari Firak as featured on Little Mr Moo. The Batman and Robin pillow by Little Pop Studio and the custom Lego photograph are great graphic touches, but the stars of the show have to be the Lego superhero figures displayed around the room.
If the full superhero look is too much for you, keep décor simple and fresh and add some pop art cool with a Roy Lichenstein inspired typography light like this Blam light from Fromage la rue on Little Gatherer.
If you are a fan of monochrome then this look is for you. Mix up text, prints and motifs and let the graphics do the talking. (As seen on Petit and Small).
Of course, some children’s interest in superheroes is little more than a fleeting phase that has passed before the Batman wall decals you ordered from Etsy arrive in the post. So if you’d rather dip a toe than jump in with both feet, accessorising with a few dressing up costumes is the low key way to go. We love this by @annabel_g for Mini Style.
