Get the Look - Modern Watercolour
Minty Magazine is home to beautifully designed children’s lifestyle and interior inspiration. On their popular blog and throughout their quarterly magazines, you’ll find a repertoire of children’s bedrooms and playrooms thoughtfully put together by some of Australia’s best interior designers, including the extremely talented Madeline Mcfarlane. With Francoise Baudet behind the lens, this modern watercolour piece seeks to inspire a fresh look at children’s bedrooms.
This look is all about the abstract swoosh of a watercolour paint brush. Choose wallpaper with a hand painted effect, with either sweeping strokes, bold imperfect lines or swirled circles. Not brave enough for a floor to ceiling look? Choose plain bright neutral walls and adorn them with frames filled with watercolour artwork in bold colours.
Sorbet Colour Palette
Although bright and bold, the modern watercolour look combines sorbet hues for a soft and playful feel. Rather than fixate on colours that work perfectly together, choose cheerful hues such as mint green, blackcurrant, peach or pastel yellow.
Calming Neutral Furniture
Go wild with injecting colour into the walls and textiles, but keep furniture, ceilings and floors in soothing neutral tones. Our Natty Modular Beds come in a simplistic and elegant two-tone colour scheme of natural wood and white. Style with sheets, duvet covers and pillowcases in contrasting colours to tie in with the abstract design.
Texture is Key
Texture, textiles and embellishments are key to this children’s bedroom design. By choosing throws and rugs with a thick weave, you’ll add another dimension to the look. Pom-poms are a great finishing touch for older children, adding a splash of colour and further texture to the space.
