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.
Embrace color psychology. There is a reason nurseries have long been designed in pale pink, baby blue, or soft yellow—they are soothing hues. So, while you might want to buck the trends or honor your sons love of fire engines, bright reds and other bold colors are too stimulating to be good choices for a calming kids room.
