As a child, I was obsessed with changing up my room’s design scheme and color palette. It started with a frilly pink bedspread and canopy, then gradually matured to sunshine-yellow walls with a cool denim comforter. By the time I was midway through high school, I was sporting tan walls and leopard print everything. My parents let me express myself through the years, and while cringe-worthy at times, it has been important to my personal design style today.

Look at your child’s room as a place to lay the foundation, a place where they can grow. First, decide what purpose the space will serve; is it just a room for rest, or does it double as a playroom, too? This will determine the palettes you choose. Hues like gray, turquoise, lime and creamsicle are soft enough for a child but can take them into the tween and teen years with ease.

Looking for inspiration for your kiddo? Here some of my favorite youthful paint palettes:

Kids Bedroom

Bright Green Boy’s Room: Designer duo Robert and Cortney Novogratz took the bright green hue from the crystal chandelier and painted the ceiling a matching shade. The fifth wall is also a nice complement to the toile wallpapered accent wall.

Kids Bedroom

Vibrant Blue Girl’s Room: A cheerful pastel shade of blue is perfect for a growing girl and can easily coordinate with any color.

Kids Playroom

Bright Orange Playroom: A creamsicle orange hue is ideal for a multipurpose kids’ playroom. Black and white chevron rugs add an air of maturity for the future tween hangout.

Kids Bedroom

Hot Pink Tween Girl’s Bedroom: When it comes to wallpaper, sometimes less is more. A wallpapered accent wall adds a touch of edge, along with an adjacent hot pink accent wall along the window seat. If she decides she hates pink, there’s much less to worry about down the road.

Kids Bedroom

Purple Kids’ Bedroom: Designer Brian Patrick Flynn used a soothing yet playful shade of purple as the palette for this toddler’s bedroom and play space. The room is made up of three areas: a sleeping spot, a large, open play space and an activity center.

    I think the room with the green ceiling is beautiful. Also there's something very appealing about that purple room.

    Child's bedroom with a crystal chandelier and a giant fireplace. Closing my eyes and telling myself it's not a real room, just a color palette idea. Lovely palettes…entirely unpractical designs for the first two. The rest are more practical. The orange room is great, the pink room is good, the purple room needs something else, maybe some lime green to brighten it a bit.

    I LOVE the blue room. My daughter's favorite color is blue and she would love this room too. Is there any way to find out where the comforter, pillows and the hanging decoration came from? Would like to try and use them when we redo our daughters room. This gave me a whole new direction for decorating her room! Thanks!
