As we watch the interaction viewers have with the images promoting our current contest, Youthful Inspiration, most viewers are gravitating towards the richer and more sophisticated hues. Here you can see that these colors are not your traditional gender pink and blue, rather more chic versions (you can find them at Colorhouse Paints, along with many more beautiful options!).
This trend of introducing sophisticated color palettes in kids spaces doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. More and more, high design is being incorporated in living spaces for little ones. Now nurseries are seen as an extension of the style of the entire home. With this shift, the days where children’s rooms are filled with cartoon characters may be numbered.
This change can be due to a number of reasons. Take the color gray, for example. Grays have become so widely used in every facet of home design, and it’s only natural that this soothing and calming color move into a nursery or kid’s room.
Other trend colors are rich and moody, like Marsala, the 2015 Pantone color of the year. This plush and elegant color is being used throughout the home so why not use it in your child’s space?
Perhaps living in the age of Pinterest and Houzz has also been a contributor. High design inspiration is accessible to virtually everyone now, so more people than ever are learning the ways of the pros.
Here are some great examples of how you can bring a sophisticated color palette into your child’s room.
If you aren’t feeling brave enough to paint entire walls such rich colors, you can still bring this trend to your child’s room with small accessories and furniture. This way you can keep your walls neutral without sacrificing visual room interest.
Here are some looks that pair pops of the most sophisticated colors with neutrals and pastels.
Working with sophisticated, trend colors are great because you can find almost any item, in any home decor store, at any prices point. Plus, you can swap them out seasonally or simply when you are over that color or your child is. Here are some room accessories that give you the kind of play.
