Modern Color Schemes for Kids

When it comes to choosing colors for kids’ rooms, pink and blue are always going to be popular, but what if you’re looking for something a little more versatile?  There are many vivid, welcoming and modern color schemes you can consider if you’re going to wait to find out your baby’s gender, if your very different kids will be sharing one room or if you know you’re likely to move family members to different rooms within the next few years and don’t want to be stuck repainting so soon. Take a look at these contemporary twists on nursery decor.

I can’t think of a room that stands to benefit from some cozy, calm colors more than a nursery. Sure, it’s a little outside the box, but why not use the same soothing neutrals you’d see in the spa in the design of your little one’s retreat? These tones are as cool as they are comforting.

Orange You Glad

Kids are fun and they’ve got a lot of energy, right? I don’t think I can think of a color as instantly fun and energizing as orange.  It pairs with almost any other accent color you’d like to use, in terms of longevity. It’s a color that grows with your kiddos. If you’re working on a space that shared by boy and girls, both old and young, consider keeping the peace with this harmonizing hue.

You want to give your kids the world, right? Well why not? Maps can be gorgeous ways to add interest, color and a little education to your child’s room. A map of a special place you’ve vacationed as a family or small pins noting the places you’ve been add a personal touch to a universally good decorating theme.

Okay, I know this one is going to be the hardest sell, so I simply refer you to the photographs. Black and white, done correctly, can provide the exact type of nostalgia we all have when thinking back to childhood. It’s sweet, it’s simple and it directs all focus back to the most gorgeous thing in the room: your baby.
