Guest Picks: For the Kiddos
Go For Neutrals and Pops of Fun Color for Both Girl's and Boy's Rooms
I get a lot of questions from friends, clients and blog readers about kid's rooms. They aren't hard to do. Just start with a neutral scheme (think walls and quilt/duvet) and add from there. You can have a theme without going overboard — just bring in some prints for the wall or some cute book ends and you've got it covered! Here are a few of my favorite items that work for both little girls and boys. — Brooke from Blueprint Bliss

Vashon 3-Piece Quilt Set - $74.99

A pop of pink! Wouldn't you love to use this in a little girl's room? It would make a fabulous upholstered headboard or a fun bedskirt.
