Neutral palette = timeless rooms Decorating a child’s room can be very inspiring. This room plays a special role in a child’s life and is often an extension of the parents’ desire to provide a nurturing cocoon. Decorating a child’s room should be fun, so tap into the child in you and start the process from that perspective. There are no “right” or “best” colours to recommend, as this is a personal choice. There are, however, considerations that make the process a pleasant experience for all involved. Many times, clients start their renovation projects with wall colours. Although this is definitely an important part of the ambience, it is recommended to leave the actual colour to the end. You want to start with your limited design options — those items that must stay, such as flooring and furniture. These will need to be kept in mind when paint colours, window coverings and accessories are added. Next, consider the function intended for this space.

To simplify this task, first select three options you will be pleased with and then have them choose one. In every colour palette, there are calm and soothing colours, but it is up to you to together select the colour they want to live with. A neutral shade is definitely safe, as you can change the accessories as they grow. But remember that this is a child’s space, so today’s accessories should be engaging and of interest to your child. Creams and off-whites can be a lovely backdrop for a room, and the blue, taupe, grey and green colour palettes also have neutral options. Wallpaper is also an interesting option, especially in plaid patterns. Plaid is timeless and it can suit both boys and girls of all age groups. Consider adding wallpaper to the lower portion of the room and build your colour palette around that.
