What to expect when you’re expecting? Alongside the morning sickness, nausea, and ridiculous cravings, you can look forward to some amazing nursery decorating ideas!
Nurseries and children’s playrooms are some of our favourite rooms to transform. From imaginative wallpaper to bright bold colours, you can really let out your creative side!
It’s worth mentioning that if you’re decorating while pregnant, you should be using LOW VOC paint (don’t worry, all ours are). If you’re hypoallergenic or someone who suffers with allergies, we’d recommend going for our Tikkurila Joker Paint which can be colour matched to any colour you’d like!
Sensory information is key to a child’s development, so what better way to give them a good start than by creating a beautiful nursery full of gorgeous shapes and colours? That’s where colour blocking comes in. Here are some of our favourite ways you can create something beautifully unique and special for your child’s room.
Why not go with the flow and create a gorgeous shape that spirals across your walls. This sort of shape can make your room feel lighter and taller, and gives the room a lovely sense of personality, while still feeling quite minimal and sophisticated. This particular shade of yellow is Designer Colour match NTB66.

Colour blocking is a great way of painting a picture! By bringing different shapes and shades together, you can create a beautiful backdrop for their childhood - and you don’t need to be an artist to do it! To create this sunshine frieze, @houseproject_36 used a combination of designer colour matched paint in shades: Valspar You are My Sunshine, Valspar harlequin green, Valspar bonita R49B, Valspar Coral Crush R71B, Valspar Orange Marmalade R138C, Valspar Lover’s Secret R68D and Duluc coral flair.
Another great way to colour block is to use a stencil to create this scalloped effect to break up the wall. No stencil? You can use a plate! Watch our easy to follow tutorial on how to create a scalloped wall here. This gorgeous bedroom uses designer colourmatch NTB230.

Already painted your nursery walls? Why not add an extra dimension by adding a scalloped trim half in a bolder bottom colour. This gorgeous pink is designer colour match NTB246.
