When it comes to kids and teenage rooms, decorating can be a lot of fun, especially choosing a color scheme with them that will bring out their personality. Their bedroom should be comfortable and safe for them, but also reflect who they truly are. With some guidance, you can help young kids or teenagers select colors that speak to them, even if it means they like bright orange or lime green colors which can be used on an accent wall or through accessories. You want your children to have something lively and fun that makes them happy, so give them the creative freedom to figure out what they truly enjoy and help guide them through the process. Try to stick to 2-3 warm and cool color combinations with patterns and prints to add texture to the space. If you decide that you need help putting the room together, contact an interior designer to help tie everything together cohesively. Below are some popular color schemes for kids and teenage rooms to give you some ideas.
Purple and Orange
Purple is a popular color that works well with your younger daughters as well as your older daughters. When paired with a warm vibrant color such as orange, the color combination really pops. A purple bedroom has that bold wow factor that some kids dream of, especially if the walls are painted purple. It’s all in how you tie the colors together and how you incorporate prints and patterns to the room to add texture to the space. Include at least two different shades of purple to give some contrast and interest to the color palette. You could choose the furniture in light wood tones or white painted furniture. Don’t be afraid to add in a third color such as aqua, yellow, red, or lime green in the bedding, drapes, or from accent rugs on a small scale to really mix it up.
Green is one of my favorite colors because I love nature and it’s everywhere around us. It’s a soothing and relaxing color that has been shown to improve reading ability and creativity. Also, a fun fact about the color green is that it’s used for night-vision goggles because the human eye is most sensitive to and able to recognize the most shades of that color.

Not only is it the color of harmony and balance, it’s also perfect for spring. With Saint Patrick’s day coming up, you can add various shades of green in your home decor without spending a lot of money (which we also associate with green). You can add a splash of green to your walls, washi tape your table lampshade, hang tropical wallpaper, or reupholster your chair just to name a few. Most importantly, pick a shade of green that you are comfortable with and that gives you joy. Below are some simple ideas that will hopefully inspire you to find your own creative ways of decorating with green in your home.
