Going Grey, Yay Or Nay?

It is no surprise that children spend a lot of time in their bedroom. Used for sleeping, playing and working, it follows that their space should be a reflection of their personalities. Stylish, practical, fun, cosy and comfortable – our children’s bedroom decorating ideas will help keep kids happy from toddler to teen and all ages in-between.

Designing a kid’s space can be quite daunting. How do you make an investment that your child won’t outgrow in a year? Turns out, it’s not beyond the bounds of possibility!

Kids love bright colours but going too bold in a kids bedroom could be a mistake. Considering the rate at which the choices and tastes of a child change, in most cases this is neither a practical nor affordable option. That’s why the colour grey is a really good alternative.

A restrained grey colour palette like this adds a different dimension to what you would typically expect to find when walking into a child’s bedroom and will ensure your child’s room will always look stylish, no matter how messy it is.

To keep the look from being boring the key is to find a balance. The single biggest advantage to using grey in a kid’s bedroom is the neutral backdrop that it offers. It allows you to add pops of colour, bright accents, quirky patterns and striking artwork with ease. By taking a layered approach to designing and decorating the bedroom and by adding a few strategically placed colourful décor accessories, the room will look anything but dull! This approach also means that you can easily switch between latest colour trends and themes without having to re-design the entire space.
