The Kendall is one of thosed collections that any kid will love! If you have a budding artist, give them permission to draw on the walls! Chalkboard paint is a great option on one wall--it will be a beautiful contrast to sky blue paint and will also allow them to change up their wall art. Plus, this set's desk will make a great art station for your little Picasso!
It may have grown-up design elements, but with the right color scheme and accents, Courtney will look sweet in a little girl's room. Try turquoise wall paint and then add fun touches, like colorful bedding and a floral-print accent rug. The desk and hutch will become her favorite spot to do homework and doodle.
The great thing about the Charlie collection is that it's just as at home in a sophisticated guest room as it is in a kid's or teen's room. For a youth or teen girl's room, try combining the white set with a soft, soothing wall color, like celery green. Then, work in floral artwork, a silk floral arrangement and an area rug with hints of the wall color to create a restful retreat.
For a shared girls' room that's as bright and lively as they are, start with bunk beds in a vanilla finish and a bold, colorful rug. Then reference all the different hues in the rug throughout the room. You can even do the bedding in their favorite colors -- just keep it solid so it doesn't become overwhelming.
If your son's favorite colors change daily, just paint the walls an easy-to-decorate-with color, like tiger's eye brown and choose a neutral rug. Then, if his current favorite colors are blue and red, you can feature these hues in his bedding and accent pieces, which are easy to change out.
Since Miranda's antique white finish is so fresh and inviting, paint with similar attributes, like a turquoise hue, will balance it beautifully. Help personalize her surrounding space with blue-and-white bedding, a bedside lamp and complementing wall art. For added pops of color, work in a few silk florals.
Kids aren't always easy to please, but the Brooklyn collection is sure to make your child smile! For his personal haven, boy-approved blue walls and bedding create the perfect canvas for the mature bed and accent pieces, all done in an ageless chocolate-bar finish.
Let her choose any color she pleases for her walls because the best part about white furniture is that it goes with everything. And what girl wouldn't love for her room to be cotton candy pink? A pink, printed area rug and a coordinating lamp will really personalize her space.
This Meridian collection's simple yet sleek styling and warm espresso finish allow it to work equally well in a girl's or boy's room. For example, in a girl's bedroom, taupe walls and bedding, decorative accents, florals and wall art in a punchy palette will really pop against Meridian's dark wood.
When it comes to color in a kid's room, the bolder the better. That's what is so versatile about this set's honey pine finish; it goes well with those bright colors kids love. Ocean blue walls will nicely complement the wood's golden tone and apple green makes a perfect accent color.
