Kids are naturally drawn to bright colours but if you’re decorating a room that’s shared by a boy and girl, you may have to re-think their request to paint the walls with their favourite colours. The key to creating a gender-neutral room that still ignites the little one’s imaginations is to create a canvas and work from there, including colours through accessories, bed linen and artwork.
Warm neutrals like cream and warm stone are versatile shades that can be easily mixed and matched with pops of other colours, such as reds, pinks, greens or greys. Cool neutrals and white come to life when paired with blues, turquoise, deep purple, or lime. Use your kids’ favourite colours to divide the space by painting feature walls, furniture and alcoves.
