Today in Room Decor Wednesdays we bring you three different nurseries with different interpretations of how to use colour and article about the use of pastel colours in your bedroom.
If you are starting to decorate a nursery before you know whether it’s going to be a girl or a boy you might either risk the colours you use or better try to go for gender neutral colours. That last option was the one chosen by the family in this article. They decided to start preparing the room before they learned the sex of the baby. Turquoise, soft greens and a couple of shades of brown were the chosen colours and as you can see in the photos the result is great. Very balanced and soothing, ideal for babies.
In this case the room was for a girl but the parents went again gender stereotypes and used blue and I must say a very beautiful shade of blue. Blue looks terrific set against natural wood flooring and furniture as in this case.
To make the room more playful they added some beautiful birds hanging from a mobile over the cot and of course lots of teddies: a must have in any children’s room. They just make the room cozier and colourful.
Oh Joy’s is a very well know online blog dedicated to design, fashion, and food and of course having a stylish mom means a baby with a very stylish room. White painted walls become the perfect canvas for colourful painted furniture and accessories. She used rose gold circles made out of contact paper that she applied to the wall to add more pattern and colour to the white. Beautiful prints and mobile complete the look in a very cheap and DIY way.
The article is full of photographs and links to the resources and ideas used in the room so if you are willing to do it yourself this might be a good article to get ideas and inspiration.
We finish today’s post looking at the use of pastel colours in bedrooms. Pastel colours are ideal if you are looking a soothing decor in your room and they will allow to use either cool or warm colours without the effects brighter colours can have on you. If there is a place where you would never like to get disturb sleep that’s your bedroom and we have all read the effects of colour over people either energizing or calming you.
Psychologists recommend using soothing and calming colours in your room. And even though the colours that calm you and help you relax might be a very personal choice, pastels are in general colours that will help you achieve that goal.
In the article you will find more information about this issue and of course photos of several rooms decorated in pastels.
