Stick to a limited color palette. If all white is not for you, bring in your favorite colors, but in a thoughtful way. Here, the brights are limited to reds and oranges — which work beautifully with the brick wall and wooden furniture — and are teamed with plenty of white for an airy feel. Let the light in. Keep window treatments to a minimum in a small space to make the most of the natural light and keep the look unfussy. For privacy add plain roller blinds or hang flat panels of lace or voile.
Limit stimulation. A crowded and messy childs bedroom is highly disruptive to sleep patterns—even with the lights off. Plain and simple, chaos causes sensory overload which leads to anxiety. Keep toys, clothes, and other supplies in covered boxes, baskets, or cupboards to avoid overstimulation caused by clutter. Plus, enforcing a screen-free-bedroom rule will eliminate that potential distraction as well as brain-stimulating blue light emissions.
