We are calling it ‘The Transformation’. Here we will showcase 2 inspiration boards each time. The first will be either a nursery or a toddler room and we will transform the same theme into a tween or teen room. So you will get to see 2 similar themes; one each for a small child and an older one.

We would love to have some feedback on whether you find the series helpful and inspirational or not. So don’t hesitate to make your opinion heard.

The Transformation – A New Series

Everybody enjoys decorating a room. Even something as simple as changing the layout of the furniture in the room can instantly lift your spirits. Change is Good.

But then again, the challenge for most parents lies in changing the look of the room in line with the changes in your child’s age and phase. Can a room made for a baby truly transform into a room for a teenager?

We have put together two inspiration boards to help you see how the same color scheme can be used in a nursery as well as the teen room.

room colors grey

Grey is a popular wall color these days. So we decided to use it as our base wall paint color for both rooms. Here you see the nursery. We love the pops of color against the placid grey.

See how this grey color scheme carries onto a teen fashion-ista's room.

The Color Scheme Bible: Inspirational Palettes for Designing Home Interiors by Anna Starmer.

Here is one customer review to help you decide:

"This is a spiral bound book so it lies flat for convenient reference. It has an excellent introduction touching on the basics of color theory, but the main body of the book consists of palettes. There is a main color covering most of the page, with bands of two accent and two highlight colors superimposed on the main color. There is descriptive text giving the inspiration behind the palette and suggestions for how the colors might be used in the room. The book is divided into color sections (reds, yellow, etc.), with each section having around 20 different palettes. I must have checked 50 books on color in interior decorating out of the library, and this is the one I bought.
