Hi I'm about to move my 3 year old into a new bedroom. It's currently the spare room and all white. We haven't decorated any of our new build home rooms since moving in. I thought it would be a good chance to decorate while we were swapping the furniture around.
I like the Abbey elephant duvet and curtains from John Lewis.

Any paint colour ideas. I feel like I want something pail and not pink but that's as far as I have got.

Maybe a pale lemon, silvery grey or pale blue.

I’d say a nice light green. Very calming colour.

You want to stick with white or pick out a strong colour. Or both - have the colour on one wall. Dulux Nordic Sky might work with the blue.

Pale pastels would look washed out next to it, though.

My 4yo dd has this duvet cover and similarly coloured curtains from a previous JL range. Her room is painted pale green with one wall in a gorgeous peacock colour. She also has a removable.sticker mural on one wall from www.beckyandlolo.co.uk (the big tree one). It's my favourite room smile

She wanted it all pink but we wanted something with more longevity! Hot pink accessories have kept her happy so far grin

I like the bright green of the elephant, it would look great.
