In part one of this series we’ve covered some of the basic principles of decorating a kid’s room and why it’s best to invest in expensive neutral furniture and then add colorful accents.
Today we’re going to talk about creating a blue-themed room using accents only. Remember, the idea is to keep the expensive basics – floor, walls, furniture – are kept in neutral shades, such as white or a light-colored wood. The idea is to allow flexibility here, so the room can be blue-themed this year and green, yellow or purple-themed a couple of years down the road without breaking the bank. Here are some cool items to mix and match and get a relaxing thoughtful blue-themed bedroom for a young boy or girl.
Start off with a nice large splash of blue on the room’s floor. You can go with a solid blue rug like this one (Amazon Link) –
