Make every week shark week with these aquatically-awesome, shark inspired bedroom ideas. These astute animals have long fascinated both adults and kids alike, so why not fuel your little one’s obsession with jaw-some decorating! We’ve compiled our top tips and preferred products to create a fun and playful space while steering away from the grisly or tacky. So, whether they’re on the Baby Shark (doo doo doo doo doo doo) bandwagon or they're a fan of Bruce the fish-friendly shark, check out our shark-tastic styling below!
First things first, colour scheme. Keep to a nautical colour palette with shades of blue, white and grey to capture the essence of this theme. Bring the aquarium home with colours that mimic the shark’s natural environment. Keeping all of your furniture in the same colour palette ensures a cohesive and balanced space. These colours are all on the cool side of the colour spectrum and intrinsically work together. They are also very calming, and will bring balancing energy to your child’s room.

When it comes to the hero of the bedroom, (the bed itself,) we can’t swim past this sheet set from Target! With its tasteful aesthetic and the way it perfectly matches the colour scheme, have fun with your little one naming all the different shark breeds depicted on the design. The soft cotton composition is both durable and breathable which is ideal for young kids. Pair this set with a pale blue bottom sheet and pillowcases and feel free to incorporate some blue and grey cushions, and hey, why not take a deep-dive into this trend and finish your bedspread with this bite-sized shark blanket from Kmart?
When it comes to styling up your shark-infested space, what you put on the walls will define the space. When choosing your wall art, keep it coastal with scenes of the ocean, coastline or underwater life. Keep clear of anything too graphic or cartoonish to maintain a refined space. This wave canvas from Kmart is the perfect addition to mimic the peaceful presence of a vast ocean. You can use wall art, stickers or decals of any nautical motifs such as chunky rope, anchors or shells to add to the room. Be as creative or as minimal as you like, whatever suits your shark-loving little one!
