Bedroom / June 26, 2018 / Oriane
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.
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.
