I’ve recently had our children’s bedrooms re-decorated using our wallpapers and fabrics. We have two sons, Barnaby who's 2 and Seb who is just 2 months old an it’s been great fun picking designs out for them. Now both of the rooms are completed, I’d like to share with you a few pictures.
For Seb we decided to go for ‘Merry go circus’ in cream and green. The room has an overall feeling of being playful and fun, yet still calm and relaxing. We picked Farrow and Ball paint in the colour ‘Dimity’ to match the background shade and a brilliant white for the ceiling, skirting and door. The south facing room has light pouring through the windows so it feels spacious, lovely and light. We do have nice thick black out blinds for nighttime though in a plain cream.
Barnaby’s new room features ‘Once upon a star’ in slate and white with the bleached ‘Scattered stars’ fabric. We used a brilliant white for all the paintwork. This is a smaller room, which has a single bed and a changing table. The grey is great for making other colour's pop, so if you teamed this wallpaper with a bright rug or cushions you’d be guaranteed a fun modern palette. Barnaby has been having great fun identifying the planets and stars and lies in bed captivated in the pattern.
I hope you enjoy the pictures and please get in touch if you would like any samples to try these colours at home.
