Choose a cornerOnce you’ve assessed your room’s true potential, consider which corner would work best as your nursery. It’s wise to leverage your room’s architectural features into your nursery layout. If you have a seldom-used built-in wardrobe (and you’re blessed with alternative storage), it may be worth stripping down the doors and interiors and carving a nursery nook into its cavity. Similarly, a vacant recess could accommodate slim shelves, or an empty wall could host an aerial cupboard. Here are 10 things to know before designing a nursery
Zone verticallyThis little nursery nook is soothing and restful while still packed with interest and detail, thanks in part to the clever use of paint colours.By stepping the colours up from dark to light, it gives a cocooning feeling at the lower level which gets lighter and brighter as your eye travels up towards the ceiling.By taking the first colour up to the lower shelf it provides a larger wash of the main colour behind the cot, but the shelf acts as a natural point to break the colour and introduce the next step, and again with the shelf above.The strip of bright yellow along the edge of the top shelf also adds a zip of sunshine that continues in a slim band around the rest of the room, adding a tiny shot of powerful colour to the otherwise restful scheme.
