Personalize the walls. Not every room can get away with colorful circles on the wall, but your child’s bedroom can. This can be an easy DIY project you and your child do together: Use circular stencils to outline the shape and then fill them in with whatever color you choose.
Get the ceiling in on the action. Give your child something inspiring to look at while she’s daydreaming her summer afternoons away. These yellow stripes give the room a fresh cabana feel that pops off the magenta bed shams.
Get the ceilings AND the walls in on the action. Why stop at the top? Amp up both the ceiling and your walls with painted murals or colorful wallpaper. The room will feel like an imaginative little escape.
Be “cool” about storage. Your child will be the hippest kid on the block using repurposed lockers as storage. Maybe it will even inspire him to clean up? One can hope!

Just as you would in your own office, accessorize your kids’ workspace with things they love. These make it more personalized and comfortable, and less like a barren desk that screams work, work, work.
