Detract with a feature wall. In a narrow room, bring the far wall forward with fabulous wallpaper. This pretty design links the pale blue walls and bronze quilt for a room that feels cohesive and has bags of personality. Make your headboard work hard. Using a headboard for storage is a clever way to make the most of your space. This custom solution manages to be a bedside table and bookcase as well as a headboard, and could easily be built to hold a rail and shelves on the opposite side for clothes.
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.
