Choosing your Wall Color

Choosing a wall color for your child's bedroom can be overwhelming sometimes. Pick your bedding collection first and then select your wall color. Look at all the colors in the bedding (even the colors that are not dominant). Do not go for the obvious and choose the dominant color in the bedding set. For example, if you have a bedding set/accessories that are primarily blue and then you choose a blue wall color the bedding will not "pop". The bed/bedding should be the focal point of the room and the bedding should be a statement.

Instead you want to choose a less dominant color in the bedding set for your wall color. By choosing the less dominant color will allow it to stand out more. Example - You have your blue bedding set, but this set also has green, chocolate brown, pale yellow, and red colors that are less dominant. Try selecting the pale yellow or a light neutral for you wall color. Your bedding will "pop" against the walls and you will achieve a well thought out room.

Try not to just leave the wall white -- Children love color so don't skip the walls when designing their room. Paint helps give the room a finishing touch!
