What Houzz contributors are saying:
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
8. Child’s play. Kids’ spaces welcome the visual stimulation of circles and stripes, and are a forgiving place in which to express creativity.
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.
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.
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.
