Nursery with cheery photo display

Nursery with cheery photo display

Choose a simple and versatile scheme for your child’s nursery. Grey and white is quite a mature colour palette, but it leaves so much scope for adding cute patterned fabrics and other bright accessories. White circles on one wall create a sense of fun, while a hang-it photo display adds a cheerful touch above the fireplace.

Nursery with storage unit seat

Nursery with storage unit seat

Turn a simple storage unit into soft seating by adding a comfortable bench pad and a cluster of cushions. This neutral scheme is beautifully and practically decorated so that it can be easily adapted as the child grows or if the room takes on another use in future. Accessories, such as the cushions, rug and gorgeous elephant toys are what give it its feel as a nursery, rather than fixed parts of the scheme. We love the combination of stripes and other patterns in a mix of blue and pink, too.

Cool boys' bedroom with skateboard theme

Children’s bedroom with quirky feature wall

Give your child the chance to think about how he or she would like to decorate the room – they have to sleep there after all. Here the owners worked with their son to create a room he loves. The cool skateboard wallpaper will still be cool when he’s grown up, and the more adult design touches, including the limewashed floor and simple accessories will ensure that nothing dates too quickly.

On-trend grey-toned walls continue the colour scheme of the rest of the house and provide a warm backdrop for the white chest of drawers and wicker chair. Colourful toys and accessories bring unique style and character to the room, while the family heirloom standard lamp adds a vintage twist.
