Consider a Neutral Room Express yourself with 'gender fluid' styling
For decades the expectations of future gender roles have been nurtured through the way we choose to decorate our childrens rooms, leading to an expectation towards personal choice as a young adult.
In fact, the differences between boys and girls room styling has grown more significant, bearing witness to a discontinuity with the gender roles of contemporary society.

A neutral room, like the one above, will work for boys and girls of all ages and can be styled to suit as your child grows and changes and explores their own identity.
Giving your child or young adult the opportunity to make their own choices when selecting wallpapers and fabrics and enabling them to express their real selves is of paramount importance at an age where self expression is high on the agenda. The bedroom, the personal space, is of major importance as it is a microcosm in which one will have to prepare themselves for the big wide world.

Here at Blackpop, we believe that their should be no boundaries and constraints to self expression. Emancipate your children from the outmoded ideas that many of us have grown up with and let them explore their own identities!
