Girls or Boys Room

Girls or Boys Room – When it comes to decorating kids’ bedrooms, the color combination is endless.  This is certainly the time you can go crazy with colors and patterns and, as a designer, I love decorating girls or boys rooms to make it just their own.

The inspiration for this girl’s bedroom started with the Silvergate Wallpaper from Farrow & Ball, with coordinating paint in Pink Ground No. 202. This gives us the perfect little girly look. I also wanted to also add a second color that would give it a bold but playful look and the green was perfect.  I like to keep the furniture neutral so they can keep for many years and this bed in off white can be used with any color or patterns in the future. When I mix patterns in the bedding, pillows and rugs I usually use at least 5 to 7 patterns and this is the best place to switch it up over the years. I found that the rug and the coordinating color and pattern grounded the room with playfulness.

For boys bedrooms, I like to go darker with a bold neutral. This new paint color from Farrow & Ball called De Nimes No. 299 is both warm and neutral enough that it can be on the walls for years. It’s a rich color with a hue of grey which coordinates perfectly with the bed frame. The rug features a timeless pattern that easily coordinates with all the other patterns in the room like the bedding, pillows and window treatments. I liked the hue of the paint color because it’s both warm and calming. The balance of patterns gives it a fun but masculine feeling.
