Don’t be afraid of bold colors
Unlike adult bedrooms that for the most part enjoy a calm, subdued design scheme, children’s rooms need to be age-appropriate. You can certainly use bold colors on a dominant wall, as long as you tone it down with softer colors on the other walls. If you’re designing a nursey, you can go with bold colors to keep those little eyes moving and that imagination booming – but again, don’t paint the entire room in bold colors. You don’t want to overload your child’s senses. Instead, paint one wall or a few select areas in the room with a bold color, and keep the rest neutral. Wallpaper or wall stickers are another excellent idea for children’s rooms. You can match the color of the stickers or wallpaper with the rest of the colors in the room. A perfect color match between walls, furniture, accessories and even bedsheets can create a total-look.
When designing a room for a teenager, steer clear of gendered colors like blue or pink. Keep in mind your teenager’s needs – they like to feel grown up, they are adamant about their privacy, and they like having friends over. Keep the design relatively mature, with dashes of playfulness using wall stickers for example.
