When decorating a kids room, obnoxiously colored walls don’t have to be your first step.
In fact, we believe that keeping walls white or gray and adding in smaller bits of color gives you even more possibilities to make a kids room creative and playful. That, and it will keep you from repainting when they outgrow lime green or Barbie pink walls in three years. Trust us.
When it comes to finding colorful accents, first consider what your child already has. Children’s books and stuffed animals are often fun colors, so put them in a place that doubles as decor. Wall decals, bedding, and rugs all can add color and pattern to a kids room, but can be easily changed with age.
This kids room comes to life with shelving that showcases a children’s book collection. This makes the books easier to access, looks organized, and the covers add bright colors to an otherwise neutral room. Once the kids are grown, swapping out the toys and books for other accent pieces is simple.
Diamond Removable Wallpaper
This pick of diamond removable wallpaper adds a bit of whimsy but looks adult enough to redecorate the room for a growing girl.
Scandinavian Inspired Decals
A few triangles go a long way on these white walls. With an all black, white and wood color palette, this room remains youthful with cartoonish accent pieces. Where can we get a big cloud pillow for ourselves?
Vibrant Furniture and Accessories
This bedframe is a funky statement piece that says “big girl” without saying “too big”. A decal, a floral pillow, and touches of color make this kids room sweet and simple.
The collection of children’s books and mixing of patterns on this bed compliment the cool tones in the rest of the kids room, leading to a youthful yet sophisticated style.
Touches of Turquoise
The bedframe, the curtains, the record player — the details in this modern bohemian bedroom make it bold without being overwhelming. We love the sheets, too.
The New Nautical
This bed is literally stacked, and we love it. Nautical goes whimsical while a pile of patterns on a bright white canvas. The blueprints in their yellow frames complement the space perfectly.
A mix of geometric prints, a flying washi tape airplane, and a few knick knacks turn this kids room into a space to dream and create.
The accents of triangles, stripes, and circles in this room add interest and playfulness to this Scandinavian space.
