Can you suggest me a color scheme for the nursery room?


Reader's question:

"I am about to choose a color scheme for a boy's room (5 years old). The furniture are cherry wood with a few blue details on the drawers. I am thinking of painting a feature wall with blue-grey and the rest of the room white. What do you think?"

Our recommendations:

We would suggest you to opt for a more colourful and unusual color scheme (than the ordinary blue and white). For example, you could try to use creatively the following three colors:

  • The light blue: It is a bright and cheerful color
  • The olive green: It willl help your child calm and concentrate
  • A soft ochre-yellow: It will add vitality to the room

The three-color scheme, it can be applied in many different ways. For example, each wall it can be painted with one of the three colors.

Alternatively, in one or two walls, it can be created a geometric design with horizontal stripes. The rest of the walls, they can be painted as monochromatic.

Finally, you can paint vertical stripes in one wall (the feature wall) and paint the rest of the surfaces with light blue or pale yellow-ochre.
