A bedroom kids grow into
Do your kids share a room? Play with that sense of sharing by linking the two beds with chunky horizontal stripes. Here we have used sky blue and a soft neutral with Heart Wood to create a mood that’s cool yet playful – and will work for children of different ages and genders. Don’t forget to make a feature of the window with a strong Heart Wood border.
Expert tip: Horizontal stripes of colour make a room feel wider – vertical stripes make it feel taller.
A two-tone wall can create a striking backdrop that’s simple to achieve and, with these nature-inspired colours, feels fresh and easy. When it comes to colour combinations, a darker shade works better below a lighter shade. As a finishing touch, use Heart Wood to highlight features such as window frames.
