How to Decorate a Modern Kids Room | Interior Design


So children’s rooms are a lot of fun, why? Because they don’t have to be as strict and
boring as adult rooms. As we get older we kind of get a little boring
and we’re afraid to take chances. Not so with children’s rooms. This is where you have imagination and then
you want to foster their creativity. So think high energy colors. You know it’s not in the days, as it used
to be, where boys were blue and girls were pink, and they were soft blues and soft pinks
and that was it. So now you have if you go pink, you’re going
hot pink mixed with these vibrant oranges and yellows, and if you’re going boys, why
go blue? You can go with a lime green, with purple
mixed in, and you can go with chocolates, mixed with very high octane colors. You know have a lot of fun with it and also
know that functionality comes first with kid’s rooms, but imagination always takes over. You can use items that you wouldn’t normally
use. So instead of a window treatment that you
would go buy from the store, why not use some of – if you have a little girl – some of her
old dresses and put them together and kind of sew them together and make a valance. Hang it over a rod. Maybe some of their artwork that they do in
school. Frame it and put that on the wall. I even love, for instance, chalkboard paint. It’s literally paint that you paint on the
wall and the children can write all over. I mean you don’t have to tell your children
not to mark up the wall anymore, because now they literally are allowed to write all over
their walls. So remember to have imagination, remember
to have functionality and let the kids pick their wall color. I mean why does it have to be a color that
you want. This is their zone. This is their space. Help them to make it their own and they’re
going to like being in their room and they’re going to like being home. So do something together with them as a family
unit, but make sure that the room is a representation of who they are and kind of who they want
to be.
