When it comes to childrens decor, my eye is always drawn to white, airy rooms with playful details to add warmth and colour. With his sweet ladybug bedding and special wooden toys out on display. There is space to let him play unrestricted, with stylish storage boxes to tidy away any clutter afterwards. It is also a room that can easily grow with him for years to come. Whilst monochrome is the trend of the moment, it can be surprisingly tricky to get right. The key is to find a balance and you can do this by adding in more soft tones and textures such as wooden accents, a fun wallpaper or contrasting prints. Not only does it make the space more interesting, but it does not restrict you to one overly coordinated look. Have fun with styling and sourcing your key pieces and it will shine through in your childs room.
Efficient use of space is something that the Scandinavian style places a premium on and this is precisely why you see even the biggest bedrooms with this style ending up using only the square footage that is absolutely necessary. Once again, you can turn to bedding or an accent wall in cool, pastel hues to add color to this tiny, curated setting.
While white needs no introduction in Scandinavian-style interiors, do not underestimate the importance of black and gray in the overall scheme of things. Black anchors the room, helps define and highlight the architectural features of your choice, and offers the ideal visual balance. Shades of gray enhance this seemingly monochromatic look and give the posh, minimal Scandinavian bedroom a more contemporary and sophisticated aura. Complement this approach by using simple straight lines, sleek floating shelves, and wardrobes that disappear into the pale background for a dream bedroom.
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.
