Whether you're decorating for a newborn, a toddler or a tween, it's time to think outside the box. Forget cutesy prints and Disney characters and create a child's bedroom that combines something for the kids with adult style. Take a look at these inspired ideas:

2. PINK & GREY
Grey and soft dusty pinks is a fabulous alternative to jarring fuscias and the candy-sweet pink tones usually associated with a girl's room. Take a look at this soft pink and grey inspiration and learn how to get the look using velvet scatter cushions from collection Velour.
3. BLUE, WHITE & GREY
A blue, white and grey bedroom is a sophisticated and timeless look that will only need a few touch ups as the years go by.
4. CRAZY ABOUT POLKA DOTS
Using colourful polka dots in a kiddies room is the perfect way to bring pops of colour to a neutral colour palette. Polka dot prints are a classic option for creating a subtle, playful feeling without committing to a particular character or theme.

6. GREY & WHITE
Monotone decor in varying shades of grey, black and white can create a beautiful gender-neutral space that's modern and sophisticated. This looks works well when combined with geometric prints and textured plains. This look will last from baby way into the tween years with only minor updates:
