An earthy grey, paired with luscious green and navy accessories will create a peaceful atmosphere and the perfect backdrop to your child’s creativity and toys.

Finish the look by hanging your child’s drawings on the wall and display toy models on shelves.

Minimalist and modern, Scandinavian style is sweeping homes around the world. So why stop at kids’ bedrooms?
