How to make a child's room come to live?

We were all once kids, it was not so long ago.
When you look at what our children are wearing you see what we are trying now so hard to achieve… Take a risk with colors.
Fashion this spring is going to be colorful. don't be afraid to add those colors to your child's room. Whether it's a play room or even their bedroom make it colorful.
Adding colors can be in many ways. It can be an entire room, walls and furnitures with bold colors (as you can see in the picture of my room) or nutural colors with some bold accessories (throw pillows, play chest, drapes, play table and more).
Whatever you do, don't be afraid to take chances.
When considering colors remember what is the purpose of the room.
For an infant that will only be sleeping in the room I will choose calming colors. Don't be afraid to choose colors besides the obvious pink and light blue. There is lilac, soft greens, pastel colors and more. 
In a play room, you can be more creative. add geomtric shapes in different colors, hand prints, and more, everything goes.

Some rooms have special arcitecture, emphesize it by coloring them.
For example, if the child's room is at the attic try paining the angled cieling as well.

I was once asked, "How do you cordinate those colors?".
I will let you in on a little secret...
Look around you, choose a fabric that has the colors that you like , candy bar wrap, newspaper ad... you got the idea. Now, use the colors there  in your room (try not to use more than three colors, so the room will not be too busy).

Remember to consult the child before doing anything. It's their room let them share their ideas. You will be suprised, some of their ideas cabn be pretty good. 

Till next time,
