5 colour block wall ideas for your kids room

kids room clour block wall

Colour block walls can really make a statement in any room without a big budget. Try using contrasting colours to create geometric effects that highlight a part of your space or simply dress up an empty wall.

Further, this is a great idea if you are not a fan of wallpaper but love a splash of colour and pattern. Colour blocking is done by selecting zones on a wall or ceiling and painting them in a different colour from the main wall colour.

And with colour blocking, you can actually combine as many colours as you like. However I would like to recommend to start subtle and see how you get on.

How about this ideas: You can create patterns, paint parts of a wall, just the window frames or parts of the ceiling. You can even update furniture, take an old armoire and paint it for example. The possibilities are truly endless and I am iviting you to think outside the box and be creative…

Here are 5 fantastic kids rooms with colourblock walls to get you inspired:

With colour blocking, you can create a sophisticated as well as fun look. White and pink walls with wooden furniture gives this room a nice girly touch without being too romantic.

It is the easiest, quickest and most budget-friendly way to add some colour to a room. And pastel colours like above will create a beautiful, bright and soft paradise. Clearly, this simple and minimal children’s room got a lovely and stylish addition with the colourblock wall.

The classic! White wall painted with a contrasting colour on the ‘lower level’. The turquoise is gender neutral, fresh and fun.

This room shows another fun way to bring together two colours on one wall. The ‘mountains’ are playful and create a really quirky wall for a kids room.

A white room got a wall full of Lego brick plates for creative non-stop fun. Combining the colour block trend with toys is the ultimate solution!

 

Altogether: An easy way to get started is to simply keep the walls white or in a very neutral colour. And then pick a very bright or significantly darker color to paint halfway up the wall.

21 sunny things for your April!

paul paula blog

Another Friday. Another article bursting with fun and cool things. Including some cute things for Easter of course.

Which is very early this year, so I am hoping that the Easter Bunny will bring good surprises and a little break from our current reality. Yesterday was Antoine’s birthday. The 2nd round with Corona and who would have thought that?! Who would have thought that, again, no party, no friends around… and worse, not even school. Because he is isolation since last week because there was a case in his year group.

Therefore, hop hop HOPE. Hope for things to settle down over the next weeks…

To help I gathered my latest finds and favourites:

‘When we create our clothing, our aim is always that it is comfortable and that it is made from sustainable materials. We produce all of our clothing locally, mainly around Barcelona. We love creating our own motifs because it reinforces the brand’s identity and makes it even more unique. ‘

My favourite styles from the current collection:

A very versatile and cute cardigan that will help when the mornings are still crisp. Available in two earthy colours.

This light and airy romper that looks so comfortable and I will always love stripes.

A romantic summer dress. Because we all need one!

Some very sweet shorts.

I think they represent the signature points of Búho really well: style, comfort and sustainability.

All about Easter Bunnies!

easter for kids

 

To finish this week, I would like send you into the Easter Mood. With rabbits, eggs, lots of mellow yellow, and Spring inspiration.

And since Easter will be very early this year, in fact it is only 4 weeks away, you may want to start getting your Easter Eggs in a row…

Do you have any plans? Sounds like a stupid question with the pandemic, but here in the UK we might be able to see another family by then. Outside that is! Which is cool, and I am crossing everything I have for brilliant weather and lots of delicious picnics. Little things to look forward to.

And why not getting the kids a quirky bunny print shirt or even funky socks? A super soft knitted rabbit will be a friend forever and that pencil drawing too.

Hopefully the Easter Bunny will not be too cold. Here is some inspiration for a fun Easter week end:

1. Rabbit swaddle. (various colours available)

2. Bunny ears beanie in mint or rose.

3. Beautiful pencil drawing of a little rabbit.

4. Baby alpaca knitted bunny.

5. Bunny teether.

6. Funky socks.

7. Quirky and organic bunny print tee.

8. Cool leggings. Will make for a cool Easter Egg Hunt!

9. Mellow Yellow. Super soft muslin cotton jumpsuit! I love it and there are other beautiful colours available too.

10. Wooden figurine.

 

Happy Easter and have a look for some Spring Vibes for big and for small!

23 happy things for your March!

23 happy things for your March!
Hello Hello… we are going straight into March and with my children going back to school in a week, I can (again) finally focus more on my projects again. Phew…

One quote that, for me personally, really hits the nail on the head these days is: ‘You grow with your challenges!’
And we do. And therefore, we are still able to keep going, to see the positive side effects, and to be resilient.

But let’s not get to spiritual because that is not really my area. However I am very aware that by now the UK is doing quite well when it comes to vaccines and planning. And we were presented with a plan that shows a light at the end of the tunnel. Such a relief. And I know that maybe in your home country the situation can be very different.
Stay Strong! Stay Healthy!

And enjoy my 23 happy things for your March:
