A bedroom is a place for rest, but it can also be a creative outlet for your child. Their personal space should be everything they dream of. What better way to dress up kids’ bedroom furniture than with color? Here are our ideas for fun color pairings for your little one’s room.

Think Futuristic

Breathe new life into the beloved pink and purple combo by incorporating the Pantone 2018 Color of the Year, Ultra Violet. If you’re a fan of 2017’s Color of the Year, you can also opt for Greenery. Ultra-Violet’s blue-based purple shade brings a calming vibe to any space. It is also an inspirational hue as mentioned by Pantone, pointing us to the creativity and hope of tomorrow. Use it to design a bedroom that will spark your child’s imagination and also help them get peaceful sleep.

Orange Zest

Orange zest isn’t just for food. Sprinkle the color around the bedroom for a dose of style flavor. This vibrant hue looks great paired with neutrals or shades of blue and green, making it an excellent choice for a boy’s room. It is a color that evokes excitement and enthusiasm. It’s also very warm. If you live in a cold climate, this just may be the color your kid needs to remind him of sunny days year-round.




It’s Electric

If your mini-me loves cotton candy, energize her bedroom with electric blue and sweet pink. There’s no denying that all shades of blue have been trending topics for a while now. They pair well with practically everything, and this shade is no exception. The soft pink hue calms it down, but it’s invigorating nonetheless. Speaking of pink, Millennial Pink has been all the craze lately, too. Although the term is coined for a generation, the color is timeless. Together, electric blue and sweet pink are perfect for your girly girl.


Shimmer and Shine

No matter what color combination you decide to go with, it can always use a bit of glitz. Accessorize with metallics such as silver and gold for glamorous appeal. Navy blue and gold make a winning combination as well as yellow and silver. Yellow is actually an “it” color right now, being made popular by the younger generation and called “Gen Z Yellow”. In any occasion, both of these pairings are fit to grow with your child.
