Playful pastels are perfect for children’s spaces

Before the school season returns, many of us are taking the time to revamp and transform our children’s bedroom, nursery, or playroom, and what better way to do this than with a fresh lick of paint.

The right shade of paint is important for a child's space, whether you want to instill a playful tone or create a soothing sanctuary. Colour has the ability to inspire, excite, and calm. Finding the right balance is just like picking a child's name – it depends on his/her personality and energy.

This month, Colourtrend is celebrating bright and colourful shades that evoke joy, nostalgia, excitement, and peace in the home. Beag, a gorgeous charming hue, immediately instills a sense of calmness and an uplifting vibe. It is a soft, versatile, millennial pink that can work with a variety of interior styles and other sweet pastel shades such as Frog Green, Cuckoo Call, Anu, and Newgrange. These pick ‘n' mix inspired shades are associated with innocence and childhood nostalgia, proving to be popular choices for nurseries and children’s bedrooms.

Beag also works well when teamed with bold and vibrant colours, such as Genesis or Inkwell, as well as lighter, cooler, hues such as Temperance or Dairy Parlour. The opposites attract theory comes in to play when you are looking to create a more playful tone, making this contrasting scheme a great choice for energetic and fun filled spaces such as a child’s playroom.

A well thought out home colour scheme can carry you and your little ones through the night-long feedings, colicky cries, early milestones, and into the years of creating memories at home as a family.
