Simple and stylish ideas

-       Twice as nice!

Use two colours together on the same wall or adjacent walls for a simple yet striking look. Feature walls work wonderfully in children’s rooms; opt for a bold colour for a stylish accent that’s easy to update. Alternatively, make a statement with a painted border – simply leave a square border around the edge of a brightly painted wall to create a ‘frame’. To enhance the look, use different colours on different walls. Complementary colours work best or colours that sit close together on the colour spectrum, while borders look striking in white for real stand-out or coloured to harmonise the scheme.

-       Wall Art

 Available in all shapes, sizes and colours, wall stickers are a great way to add personality to children’s rooms and can be easily removed and updated. Consider the background paint colour as part of the scheme when selecting wall sticker designs to ensure you achieve a cohesive look. Soft, muted paint shades will showcase stickers best, ensuring that your chosen design takes centre stage. Alternatively, try a paint effect such as stencilling to add pattern and texture; for a subtle look, opt for one shade lighter or darker than your wall colour.

-       Painted Furniture

Children’s rooms are ideally suited to painted furniture; from cots and dressers to shelving, toy boxes, desks and occasional chairs, there’s lots of opportunity to add colour and style to new or tired furniture. Treasured heirlooms or junk shop finds can be upcycled to create something really special. Try painting a wooden chair or stool in a co-ordinating colour and use as a bedside table, thoughtfully arranged with a stack of books or bedside lamp to encourage a budding bookworm. Or, paint shelves a bold colour to create stand-out for collections of toys, prints or keepsakes.

Available in all colours in the Mylands Colours of London and Film, Theatre and Television palette, Mylands Gloss, Eggshell and Matt paint for wood and metal offers a choice of colour and sheen with outstanding durability and easy after-care.

-       Hidden Colour

For bright, uplifting accents of colour – and pattern – paint inside a cupboard with a striking shade such as this fuchsia pink (FTT-006) (pictured). Simple yet fun, this is a great way to add colour in children’s rooms and can be applied to the background of bookcases, shelving units or pigeon holes – ideal for showcasing toys, books and treasured art. Why not let you child select the colour themselves – if you dare! - it will remain hidden from view in a cupboard like this.
