A bedroom kids grow into

Stripes in kids’ bedroom

Do your kids share a room? Play with that sense of sharing by linking the two beds with chunky horizontal stripes. Here we have used sky blue and yellow cream with Heart Wood to create a mood that’s cool yet playful – and will work for children of different ages and genders. Don’t forget to make a feature of the window with a strong Heart Wood border.

Expert tip: Horizontal stripes of colour make a room feel wider – vertical stripes make it feel taller.

Two-tone retreat

Split effect in a bedroom

A two-tone wall can create a striking backdrop that’s simple to achieve and, with these nature-inspired colours, feels fresh and easy. When it comes to colour combinations, a darker shade works better below a lighter shade. As a finishing touch, use Heart Wood to highlight features such as window frames.
