A playful unisex bedroom


If you’re set with the challenge of decorating a room that will please both a boy and girl, give soft shades of pale green, dove grey and citrus yellow a go. These can work well alone or in harmony to create a calming yet bright bedroom for your little ones.

Calmingly neutral


If you’d like to try something different and step away from the bold and bright colours often seen in children’s bedrooms, try neutral shades.


An earthy grey, paired with luscious green and navy accessories will create a peaceful atmosphere and the perfect backdrop to your child’s creativity and toys.

Finish the look by hanging your child’s drawings on the wall and display toy models on shelves.
