Variety with vertical lines


If your children are sharing a space and have different ideas for the colour they want, use stripes to stylishly divide the room. This will give both siblings a space to call their own.

A reading corner with added drama


Every child loves bedtime stories, so create a snuggly nook for that special time. Select a colour or two that will stand out against your wall. If you’ve got neutral walls, go bright and if you’ve got darker shades, go light. The result? A striking pattern that will add depth and create a perfect spot to curl up together.
