Selecting a colour scheme for your little one is probably the most exciting part and usually the kicking off point to a kid’s room design. Whether you imagine a scheme that is creative and playful or serene and sweet, always take into consideration your child’s personality first and make sure you include him in the design process if he is old enough to express his own opinion. Even if your girl wants her favourite colour pink, and you wished for something less classic, then try to make it special by choosing a more unsual tone, like dusty, peachy or perhaps a fluorescent. And don’t forget that the colour scheme doesn’t have to be the colour that is painted on the walls – it could also be the accent colour that stands out the most, on cushions, blankets or on the rug for example. Let’s have a look at some classic exemples.


The mix of pink and pastels gives a candy sweet look which is probably the most popular colourtheme for girls between four to nine. The good thing is that you can add so many toys and accessories without it looking out of place – the more there is, the better! Pink is also a good colour for a nursery as it feels warm and cosy when the lights are dimmed.
