I have always been a minimalist. Less is more is my all-time favourite. Some people prefer colourful rooms for their children, but I’ve always had it minimalistic and simple, letting toys add warmth and colour.
As you may have already noticed, we, designers, like minimalism and are therefore using colours sparingly.
Black is my favourite. I love bold accents and bold statements. How else could one make them than by adding a bold print, a black toy chest or a dark linen bedding? Black makes a visual focus, a balance and a contrast. It makes a point.
If you still aren’t sure if painting a wall black might be a step too bold for you, you can add an anthracite bedding which also leaves an impression. The bedding presents a large area in the room, so you can experiment with the bedding first. It’s easy to change it if you feel it’s too dark.
Sometimes just little accents like Mr. Crocodile sticking out of a paper bag, a black toy chest or a toy pram can be enough to make a point.
