Children's Rooms

The challenge when decorating children’s rooms is to create a scheme that pleases both parent and child. The use of small areas of strong colour alongside more neutral walls often satisfies both parties and the simplest way of decorating in this way is to use a strong colour on the woodwork and a lighter tone on the walls.

By using a lighter colour on the largest surface you will make the room appear bigger. For boy’s rooms, try Borrowed Light No.235 on the walls with Parma Gray No.27 on the woodwork to create a strong look, happily evocative of the seaside.

If you want a warmer scheme, try Pale Powder No.204 on the walls teamed with Green Blue No.84 woodwork. Both these schemes can be enhanced by the introduction of a third stronger colour - Hague Blue No.30 in the first case and Chappell Green No.83 in the second. These can be used as an accent colour on skirting, cupboards or other furniture.

A feature wall of wallpaper can be very popular with girls – particularly Vermicelli BP1548 when seen against clean All White No.2005 walls.

It’s worth considering how using a strong feature wall will alter the shape of a room. Strong warm colours advance towards you whilst cooler, lighter colours recede - so if you have a long thin room it is better to put the wallpaper on the shorter wall. The use of stronger colours in recesses or the interior of cupboards or bookshelves is very effective in children’s rooms. This colour can also be changed as they grow in age and sophistication!
