A Colourful Nursery
Blow It vs Budget
Vicky Kieldsen shows us how to create a stunning colourful nursery
that you and your baby will love to spend time in.
Are you day dreaming about a new nursery? If so and you want it to be full of colour for you and your new baby, then this is the perfect place to be.
If the last 12 months have taught us anything it is that colour has well and truly been thrown in our slightly jaded faces. I’m not sure there is a better way to lift spirits than to see a flash of bright colour, it’s like Vitamin D for our eyes! Whether it’s on your nails, the NHS rainbow, your new lockdown puppy, or climbing the walls of your home. Rooomy is here to help you take the plunge into a more colourful lifestyle… starting with your children’s rooms.
Choosing the right colour for the room can have a big impact on your child’s mood. Children need spaces in their homes where they can retreat to, not only for quiet reflection, but also to help them grow and explore. It is extremely important to a child’s wellbeing that they have a space that suits them, both emotionally and physically. That will not only enable them to feel safe and happy, but will also encourage their personality, creativity and receptiveness in a stress reducing environment.
Did you know that blue can relax and improve productivity? Or that pink can reduce anger, grey can enhance creativity and green is extremely calming? It’s very important to think about your child’s personality when embarking on a new colour palette for their room.
This nursery has such a calm and soft feel to it with the pastel tones but then hits you with some powerful pinks in various shades. The overall balance of the nursery works so well because the main items are all in the softer shades of colours and then the odd accessory pops out to bring that dose of brightness, such as the bright pink shell cushion, or the rainbow on the chair.
I particularly love the contrast between the dusky pink wall and the sage green locker. Don’t be afraid to experiment with shades of the same colour as they can work well together. And allow yourself to push you a little bit out of your comfort zone, as this is when exciting things can be created. After all, playful environments make for playful children and, to me, that equals happiness.
Which item do you love most? I am drawn to the storage lockers and the wall prints and hangings. The soft snake toys are fun but I must say the animal rigs still freak me out, just like the animal head wall decor, it’s been a huge trend over the past three years, but I can’t quite get on board. I do see how they can be a lot of fun for the kids though and they make a great statement in any room.
Have fun designing!
