We have recently bought a home and the first room we are decorating is our toddler’s bedroom. His room isn’t very big but has a huuuge window so it gets oodles of natural light. When we first saw that room during the house viewing, my first thought was, “Ooh a dark colour would be magic in here!” and so I tried to look for images of other kids’ rooms with dark walls for inspiration as a starting point. This was not an easy task. Most kids rooms have light walls, and for good reason. But, if the room is super rich in natural light, wouldn’t it be cool to go dark and bold?
Anyway, I persevered and found a few more gorgeous kids’ rooms rocking dark walls…
If you fancy a bold colour for your kid’s room, but aren’t too sure about whether it would feel too dark, one common option is painting one wall in a dark paint while leaving the rest light (aka feature wall) but how about trying something more exciting, like the two examples below?
Have you danced with the dark? Would you be so bold in your kid’s room, or any room?
