This room got its inspiration from the cot bedding. The mother decided the colour scheme for the room after buying the bedding for the cot. Being blue she went for blue shades on the walls and white ceilings. The rest of the room is completed with either blue accessories or orange ones which create a very nice contrast.

The room is finished with beautiful wood flooring that combines perfectly with the blue colour scheme and some black furniture. It’s a room that will old very well as the child grows and will last many years.

Our next room is another nursery but in this case for a little girl. The room was primarily decorated in blue shades again: turquoise on the walls and accents of pink, yellow and a little bit of red. But even though it was for a little baby girl and she was using pink, she tried not to overdue and made it too girly. And she was very successful as the accents in pink are very subtle and do not dominate or become the first to be seen as you enter the room.

The rest of the room has mostly white painted furniture and wooden floorboards. Some nice hand made accessories like the balloons paper mobile over the cot and the embroidery hoops with more embroidered balloons complete the look.

Very beautiful and tasteful makeover with some vintage details and not at all girl only decor.

This is a boy’s room that went from the classic blue shades to a less bright and still bluish colour scheme. The little boy was growing up and of course he needed something less baby themed and more grown up. The parents decide to create something more grown up with some beautiful features.

They had already read and seen other people’s use of reclaimed wood from pallets but they had never seen those boards being used on ceilings so they gave it a go and as you can see it makes the room very special. It combines perfectly well with the panelling on the walls and contrasts beautifully with the blue accessories and fabrics use around the room, the white painted furniture and the beautiful wooden floorboards.

It’s certainly a great article to read not only for the decoration ideas you will get but the tips they give about making themselves the ceiling and going through this type of renovation on a budget.

And we finish today’s children’s rooms with one in traditional pink colours for a girl. But not in the over top bright pinks. The colour scheme used was a pale pink, white and dark brown. Pink and brown together look gorgeous and not over the top girly and white works as a neutral that tones down both other colours.

The parents opted for a very practical solution as an alternative to the traditional cot: they used a grown up bed and added rail guards that can be lifted up and down as needed. That way you save yourself the cost of changing from cot to bed as the child grows. It’s a nice tip to consider when you are doing your child’s room.
