Stylish French homes love grays and the ones I mostly use at home, are from Farrow & Ball. When we moved in three years ago, the first thing I did, was to paint all the floorboards and the walls in white (except the one behind her bed which I painted in Down Pipe).
To soften the whole look, I then painted her wardrobe in light gray. I can’t remember whether I used Pavilion Gray or Lamp room Gray because I used gray in our bedroom at the same time but it doesn’t really matter as you should always get a a few samples first to try different grays on your walls and see how they look in your room at different times of the day.
Then I created little vignettes in each corner of her room. Needless to say that her choice of toys (bright pink and 100% plastic) differs from the toys and accessories I like to buy for her room (handmade, wood, vintage) but I tried to achieve a balance & find storage solutions so she can have her toys with I can have her bedroom looking nice and visually pleasing.
I used a lot of cotton bags (you know the ones fashion shops give for free with your purchase) and I store her socks/swimming gears/headbands in various bags so each bag has a purpose but at the same time, they all look very pretty together.
My must-have storage solution though is this basket which is amazing (I also use it in our lounge to store throws)
The other great piece of decoration I think which adds instant value to a room are these paper pom poms which you can also use for a party, birthday or to brighten up a corner of your home. On this photo, I used the bright version for a photoshoot and you can see how much it changed the look of Mila’s bedroom.
