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.
Getting ready to decorate a bedroom for your big kid? You might want to forget the bright primary colors and character-patterned bedding if you expect the space to prime your kiddo for a good nights sleep. A childs bedroom should be a haven, a space they love spending time in, where they feel safe as they drift off to sleep, and comforted by what they see when they wake up in the morning. The elements are crucial for their mental and physical health, especially now when we live in a crazy, fast-paced world filled with overstimulation beyond compare. A healthy bedroom is where the mind, body, and soul re-calibrate.
I love the calming and clean atmosphere this space has, which I think is really important for a childs room. As a Mid Century design geek I love the simple wooden mobile hanging above the cot, the print of the wolf cub matches the earthy tones of the wood and cushion perfectly. I also love the idea of having photography of baby animals in a kids room, its just the right amount of cuteness whilst still feeling a little grown up. I am a big fan of Middle eastern textiles and I really like the slight juxtaposition of the candy coloured persian rug and monochrome block printed throw. I chose this image as it has a great balance of mature style with cute elements and I think a room like this could be easily adapted as the child grows up.
There are ways beyond color to give your bedroom visual contrast, and turning to a multitude of textures is an added bonus when it concerns Scandinavian style. Plush cowhide rugs, accent walls draped in wood, and a hint of shimmering copper in the form of a cool pendant light are all trendy ways that you can decorate your Scandinavian bedroom. Think of pieces such as smart nightstands, which make a really big impact on the overall ambiance of the bedroom while fitting into the Nordic style perfectly. Also consider picking a bed frame that is sleeker and made using natural wood.
