Give your child's bedroom a fresh look with this colour palette

Embrace colour this summer with the Wonder palette from the Dulux Colour Forecast 2022

The effortless mood of a long, hot summer is like nothing else, so freshening up your space with colours from Dulux's summer-inspired Wonder palette is a brilliant way to hold on to that feeling.
This child's bedroom perfectly encapsulates this mood. It was created using a soft blue paired with a white trim. Matched with floral artwork, bedding in clashing patterns and pillows in lilac and blush, these hues help to personalise the space and spark the imagination of your young ones.
Dulux Colour Specialist Davina Harper is all for using even a small amount of paint to give a room a fresh look. "Try adding one colour in a wall nook or on the wall behind your bed. Using quirky accessories in a variety of pastel colours also helps to add more interest – and most importantly, a sense of fun to a space," she says.
