4. The gender neutral green bedroom idea
Parents-to-be who have decided not to discover the gender of their child often lean toward painting the nursery yellow. After all, yellow is bright and cheerful, easy to like and always sunny. But choose the softest shade of green instead, and you’ll create a bedroom that will grow with your child. Soft pastel green is more relaxing a colour than yellow (which could make bedtimes easier) and also makes for a wonderful canvas upon which to display artwork, murals and motifs – from dinosaurs to farm animals and tropical birds to countryside floral – that evolve as your child grows and their tastes change.
Pair your pale green walls with a white single bed, or opt for a usefully modular children’s bed such as a high- sleeper or a mid-sleeper with built in storage, desk and display space, perfect for a compact bedroom.

5. The eye-catching chartreuse green bedroom idea
If you wouldn’t call yourself a shrinking violet, then why not go for one of the brightest and most vivid shades of green on the spectrum? Chartreuse is so green that it’s almost yellow. A classic tone with a traditional feel, it’s still a very cool and on trend colour.
Hunt around for an upholstered bed in the perfect shade and accessorise with green and yellow cushions. Or, be bold and paint your walls chartreuse and pair with more neutral furnishings like a simple wood wardrobe and chest of drawers.
