MOODY WALLS IN KIDS ROOMS

My ideal home would have crisp white floors and trim with some really dark walls. I love them. The contrast and romance of a dark wall stays fresh when its part of a vibrant space. Somehow the dark tones don't make the space feel dark and gloomy but rather they make things pop. Things take on another dimension against a dark background and thats why dark walls are so great in a childs space. All those toys and gadgets seem more alive. Add interesting individual lights and you've created a magical den for dreams and imagination. The trick is not to have all the room elements dark. 

How much do you love this wallpaper? The dark shadowboxes, pale floor and stunning Star Wars sign it is perfect. The yellow brings it all to life.

I pinned this room over two years ago and it is still one of my absolute favourites. Those confetti decals and branch shelf are incredible against that khaki wall.

Yellow, black and white. A perfect combination every time. And that antique day bed painted a bright colour is amazing.

A different spin on the classic green and purple combination. This is a girls bedroom and not cliche at all. The butterfly wall decoration on the deep mossy green pretty everything and the stunning moon light from Serendipity in Paris brings the magic.

Again a wonderful deep smokey tone warmed with wood and kept fresh with white. The different tones of blue are heavenly here.

Can it get more fun than a handmade rustic cloud bedhead? The colourful quilt bring it all to life against a chalkboard wall.

I know this is a shop display but you could absolutely make this happen at home. An original enclosed house bed and pops of pinks and yellow against the teal are stunning.

This is so clever. The simple grey wall and white is lovely but the hand finished palings make this a fun and eclectic space.

Again the winning combination. It never fails.
