    I'm also interested in the bedding. It's fun but sophisticated! Please share source, thank you!

    I don't know for sure..but the bedding looks like Ikea to me.

    When figuring out a question like this, I try to find a point of reference to use. In this picture, the wide strips look about the same height as the pillow cases! I'm going to guess that the wide stripes are approximately 16" and the small stripe 8." Stripes are easy and fun to do in a bedroom.

    I used the room's door as a reference for my measurements. Measuring from top of the door down 16" = orange stripe; measuring from top of the baseboard up 18" = yellow stripe; 2" space = white; 6" blue.

    Benjamin Moore's Hibiscus is similar to the Orange, BM's Deep Cowslip 6 is similar to the yellow, and BM's Night Shift is similar to the dark blue.

    I suggest using a laser level to make sure that you get the stripes level, and then use painters' tape with edgelock or similar. But realize, that you will still likely have to touch up the stripes in spots. Even really good painter's tape doesn't prevent paint leaking underneath 100%. Or alternately, you can paint over the painter's tape with the basecoat color first to seal it before you paint the stripe color.

                    Create a fun, colorful room kids will love. Bright yellow is a great choice for a youngster’s bedroom, as it’s fresh, playful and full of personality, and it is universally appealing. However, be mindful to use the color sparingly, or at the very least balance large blocks of yellow with slicks of white and other contrasting hues to ensure your little one’s room exudes a calm, soothing vibe, rather than being too energetic and stimulating.FL/Y Suspension Lamp: Kartell

                    The bright colors of this eclectic children's bedroom reflect its Miami locale. Designer Amy Lau demonstrates that irregular painted wall stripes can be a playful way to add interest to a room.

                    Children’s rooms are great places to have some fun, and stripes are the perfect outlet. Start with a white background and paint three extra wide stripes in different colors. Your kids will have the coolest bedroom in the neighborhood.

                    Here’s another children’s space infused with the candy-corn color scheme. If an entire wall in yellow or orange seems too much, consider stripes. When combined with and separated by cooler colors, the brightness will not only be toned down, but the stripes themselves will create more dimension, which is particularly helpful in smaller spaces. Add in a yellow ceiling that mimics a sunny sky, and who wouldn’t want to wake up to that?

                    All hail the stripes. Bold and colorful horizontal stripes will make your child’s bedroom appear larger and create an energetic backdrop for his furnishings. Set it off with playful fabrics and patterns in similar and complementary colors to make the most of the look.

                    Think outside of the blue box! Although blue is a great choice for boys' rooms, colors such as orange and citrine will result in a lively space that will encourage creativity and imagination.

                    Dear American interior designer Amy Lau, you are a genius and I love your teen rooms as much as your non-teen rooms. Again, mid-century design is fantastic for teens; it's cool enough for teens and nostalgic enough for moms, dads, grandmoms and granddads. The FL/Y pendant from Kartell is great for teen rooms for many reasons: it's plastic and hard to break, it comes in many colors, it's often under $300.

                    FL/Y is perfect in a bright children's room. I love the way this designer has played with horizontal stripes, squares, and circles here. Why not add a light that's a cut off sphere?

                    Gathering spots for kids can be a little different than those appropriate for grownups. Bunk beds are so much fun and a total kid magnet.

                    Miami Like New Orleans, Miami's design sometimes feels foreign. In this case, borne of the islands and neighbors to the south. The sunny colors of this kids' bedroom are pure Miami.

                    I like the colors combo and the yellow kartel lamp is perfect here. Can work for both boys and girls. Even though i'm not a big fan of bunk beds i have to admit that this room is beautiful.

                    I like the fun stripes on the wall for a children's room. This is split-complementary with the orange and yellow complementing the blue.

                    Split complementary uses orange, yellow, and blue. This uses all of those colors.

                    the colored stripes on the walls give the feeling of excitement because you typically wouldn't see colors or designs like this in rooms unless it was a kids room or play room.
