When we think of kids’ room styling we often think of color. But it can be intimidating to break out the paint swatches and put brush to wall. Letting your little one pick their favorite color and letting loose with the eggshell can easily end in disappointment. So what other ways are there to add color to kids’ rooms? 

8 Playful Ways to Add Color to Kids Rooms Design

It’s been a while since I published a little inspiration from designers who have an eye for the perfect kid’s room. These rooms caught my eye because they are colorful, stylish, of the moment, and playfully childish. Kid’s can have a fun bedroom in a highly styled home. 

8 Playful Ways to Add Color to Kids’ Rooms

Bold Wall Panelling


This gorgeous boy’s room is the handiwork of fellow Phoenix designers Jennifer & Joanna of J&J Design Group. They have some fabulous kids’ interiors so I highly recommend having a browse of their website.  

Color Block Contrasting Headboard


This Regency House in Dublin, Ireland is home to this bold but pretty girl’s room. Genevieve Hurley Interiors put together this beautiful color combo.  It’s simple, striking and just the right amount of girly. I love it!

Rainbow Shutter or Blind


This is a very simple, bright white room. But it’s so playful and colorful with this rainbow shutter! Totally adorable and easy to remove and repaint if you need to. The feature rainbow shutter is from All Shutters & Blinds in Adelaide, Australia.

Boldly Painted Furniture


I am crazy for this shade of red. It’s not quite scarlet, more of a muted crimson. Whatever it is, it’s the perfect color for injecting fun into kids’ furniture. This awkwardly shaped room is transformed by this built in bed and bookcase. This project is the work of 2to5 Design in Illinois.

All the Trimmings


Color alone is not enough. After all, you can create a fantastic kids room in neutral colors. It’s all about the details when it comes to transforming a room into a playful wonderland. This fabulous girl’s room in Chicago by Randall Architects goes all out on warmth and fun. From the beaded curtain to the zebra print bedding, I’m pretty sure my daughter would fall in love with this room!

Lampshades & Polkadots


Another room made by the details! The simple blue wall just isn’t enough. This room is completed beautifully by the playful stacked lampshades, the scatter of gold polka dot decals and even the matching pompoms hanging on the wall.

Awesome Mural


Anyone that’s been following for a while knows I love decals and wall murals. They are such a simple way to bring the party to a kids’ room! This rocket mural is awesome!

Go Retro


Especially adorable when it comes to nurseries, consider going retro with your wallpaper and furniture. This adorable kids room from Damon Liss Design is colorful while remaining classy and stylish. My Boys have a similar Eames rocker in their big boy bedroom and I just love how it brings a pop of color to our grey wall paint.

I hope these beautiful designer rooms have inspired you to go ahead and add color to your kid’s bedroom or play space. I’m always playing with paint and look forward to my next project!
