Trick the eye with mirrors. Creating the illusion of space with mirrors is a classic trick that works every time. Perfect for smaller bedrooms, a mirrored wall will visually double the space. This one does the job in style, its high position keeping the effect subtle and the antiqued surface looking elegant. Have pieces made to measure. Having custom furniture made for your space can be a very worthwhile investment. This twin bed has been designed to fit under the eaves perfectly, leaving plenty of space in the rest of the room. The built-in drawers and wall-mounted bedside table and light maximize every inch of floor, while a classic transparent chair provides unobtrusive seating.
A better option is to create a base of soft neutrals like grays and taupes mixed with pastel colors—try lavender and celery green if you want to avoid the standard pink and blue. Also avoid high-contrast palettes and busy patterns on walls, bedding, or rugs or risk making your child feel energized instead of relaxed.
