Having a child is expensive! As a mother of 2 girls myself and a house proud mum at that, I know the costs. There’s something delightful but wasteful in setting up a nursery, then a room for a toddler, then that older kid but not yet teenage décor and finally, they are ready to let go and want change, but not completely!

How do you plan ahead for some obvious change of bedding furniture, your child’s own input into their space and how it feels, it’s functionality and durability? Everyone has some creativity in them. Using a few decorating rules about colour, style, texture, accessories and artwork can help make your creative choices better and longer lasting.

1. Colour for purpose:

Have you ever heard of colour psychology? It’s a soft science used over the millennia and by advertising, marketing and interior design companies, hospitals, prisons etc. For kids, colour is essential so they embrace it and it reflects their personality. For longevity and a beautiful décor, unless your walls are white, a fullon multicoloured décor can be overpowering, especially in a small space. If you love multicoloured, then put all the colour in your artwork, rug, toys, cushions and floral arrangement and keep the greater décor more straightforward so that it lasts.

Todays interiors are the most elegant and restful when the colour palette flows throughout your home. With your child’s room, take your wall colour in and then, choose one favourite colour from your palette and add more of it, but how do you know which colour? Avoid red - it’s not restful for a bedroom!
