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.
Bring the outside in. Using and designing around natural elements sends a subliminal message to the brain to feel calm. The colors, sights, sounds, scents, and textures found in nature present the most perfect balance and are the greatest source of inspiration for all my schemes. One way to bring nature inside is to incorporate images of the outdoors into your childs bedroom. Especially when working with children, wall art should be photography over paintings. Photos help children learn how to observe details around them and they learn how to appreciate everything nature does for us as a whole. Photos can also double as lovely views when windows with lovely vistas are not available.
