A pretty pastel room

June 30, 2015

how to decorate with pastel coloursI know I’m usually a cool monochrome and minimal person but there is one colour trend that I am feeling very drawn to especially for a kids room or a nursery.  Extra bright or neon type colours can feel too overpowering for me so if I was going for a colourful kids room it would have to be beautiful soft pastel shades.  Pastel shades work so well for babies, boys or girls and they can even work for a shared unisex room.  The colours are soft and calming and that should help the kids sleep better (ok that maybe me being over optimistic!). Thinking about pastel kids rooms I went looking for some inspiration to put together a mood board that will hopefully inspire you too.  So if you’re thinking about pastels, keep reading for some tips on how to decorate with pastel colours.

I wanted a range of colours in the room because I think different pastel shades mix so well.  I wanted to create a feature wall or a focal point so I started with that abstract cloud wallpaper which has all the pastel shades mixed in so well.  This wallpaper is part of a range by Wallpapered that you can customise to your exact dimensions making it perfect for a feature wall.  But if you had a particular pastel image or print in mind, Wallpapered also offer a make your own wallpaper service so you can really use anything you like and make it absolutely unique to you. 

Next I picked out three shades within the wallpaper that I really liked which were a mix of pastel pink, green and blue.  I think three main colours is the perfect number to give a nice variety of shades without it becoming too much.  I kept the bed neutral as beds are a focal point in a room and a pastel bed would have been a bit of an overkill.  But while the bed is clean and neutral, you can always add pastel bedding like I’ve picked.  Also keeping lots of white in the room actually helps the pastel shades to stand out.  I then picked out accessories in my three chosen shades and lastly I added a garland that has all the pastel shades which makes it all come together.  Here’s where you’ll find all these pretty pastel things:
