Colours that Calm

How to meld soft pastels with delicate pattern and create a warm,
eclectic spring nursery

Colour and pattern have the unique ability to define a space and create a little bit of magic, so adopt a playful approach to designing your new nursery and embrace this seasons ‘new neutrals’. Soft pastels are über chic, easy to use, creating a sense of calm relaxation. Layer gently colourful shades like delicate tea rose, pale mint, warm grey and soft peach and define with tones of teal, deep blue and mustard. Add pattern into the mix with an ever popular Paisley wallpaper and Liberty inspired ditsy floral fabrics. Don’t be afraid to include dazzling colour in the room as babies respond first to colour (and then shape), but limit it to eye-catching mobiles suspended above the cot, or pattern on storage bags and tassels on accessories. Keeping key pieces of furniture white ensures they remain timeless but adding touches of metallics will add gorgeous glam appeal... after all, you’ll be spending a lot of time in there too!
