Tired of the same old stuff for kids rooms? One more girls room in frosting pink or a boy’s room in red, white & blue – yawn. Kids and especially teens are much more in tune to decorating and design today. Not that they all need an MTV Cribs pad but their visions have expanded beyond the typical. They have definite opinions and with oodles of options and inspiration available why shouldn’t their room be as wonderful as possible?
We’ve created a few color scheme inspiration boards full of fresh ideas to get the ball rolling. Please enjoy!
Girls – forget the standard stuff and have some fun, make her room as original as she is!

Both kids and teens need their rooms to speak to their individuality. These color schemes are designed to grow with a child, allowing personal tweaks to particular colors while allowing their rooms to be their own personal refuge. Kids are a bit more savvy today, their room or their haven can reflect this.
