My task is to help decorate a child’s room.
Excitement is building but not about the wall colour as it currently has a soft liquorice feature wall with pale blue on the other walls. I like the thought of having a dramatic piece in the room and it doesnt always have to be an expensive item.
There are some great graphic murals you can use or a bold cover on the bed picked up in the smaller pieces scattered around the room.
Nowadays we don't define a room by the child's gender, but rather their tastes, likes and dislikes, including colour.
My favourite has always been red, so a splash here and there does wonders to introduce the colour in a subtle way.
Don't be afraid to be bold and look for pieces as you go to add to a room, they can always be a work in progress and be ever changing as the child grows.
