Kids enjoy many colors, but they are constantly being pushed by their parents to wear blue or pink clothes, live in a blue or pink room & play with blue or pink toys. Let your kids escape from this common and sterile pattern and try a more interesting color scheme.

reason we are used to painting children’s rooms only pink or blue,
depending on the child’s gender, is that adults have prejudice.
If you are creative enough, you may even decorate
your children’s room in a way that will be both original and easy
to be kept clean and tidy. Of course, you should be much more
concerned about what will please your kid, instead of how you will
clean the space. Here are several suggestions that will surely
inspire you to go for colors which will
bring more style and personality to your kids’ room:
Orange and Yellow
entirely citrus-colored room may be not so bright an idea, but a few
fresh accents can really do miracles for a
plain and dull children’s room. Combine mild
shades of yellow or orange with
neutral beige or green
for instance to prevent the room from
looking too clean and distressed.
You can easily achieve a soft and gentle atmosphere if you paint the
walls in some creamy shade of yellow.
A grey room with fresh orange or lemon decorative
elements as well as a few pillows and an armchair will be very
enjoyable for every kid. The citrus shade will add freshness to the
interior, while grey cabinets or a carpet may spare you much domestic cleaning as they will conceal some blemishes.
softness of pastels make them equally appropriate for both young
ladies and gentlemen. If you pick such hues for your kids’ room,
you can be sure that your beloved children will have a calming and
relaxing place to sleep, study or play. Pastel
shades are also very suitable for babies
due to their soothing effect. Classy
hues like lilac, mint or peach will add a
touch of elegance to the décor
of your kids’ room, so do not be afraid
to paint the walls with either one or a few of them. Should you
decide to combine the colors, keep accessories to minimum or at least
go for ones with clean lines and light
texture, to avoid the feel of gingerbread interior.
kids’ room will truly benefit from warm
and earthy shades, as long as you put a couple of cheerful decorative
elements to bring more life to the space. Combine dark wood furniture
with grass green carpeting to represent a magical forest. Or you may
select a light and natural color like beige for the walls and a
bolder hue, for example red, for the bedclothes of your child.
Compensate the neutral shade with accents in a lively color to
freshen the atmosphere of the kids’ room up. A great idea is to try
to represent your angels’ favorite seasons, which may be a not so
complicated task. Draw a few snowflakes on the wall, put a few plants
in the room (this will also teach your kids how to take care of
things) or decorate cleanly in a marine theme, the choices are
you are not ready to give up pink or blue, at least escape from
decorating the room only these colors and mix them with something
other instead. Plenty of hues are waiting to be used in your
I love these tips -- kid's rooms are often so overly gendered; these are some nice neutral alternatives without being boring. I'm pretty excited about the orange and yellow:)
