It is in a children’s room where we can expand and express ourselves more when applying color.

It can be applied in large doses anywhere, but it seems to be in children’s bedrooms where the best result is, and where it seems more appropriate, right?

Having said that, I have prepared several colors to decorate a nursery, which work very well. Take note that we start with these colors to paint a children’s room.

Pink color for children’s bedrooms

This color combines the best of both parts of the color wheel. On the one hand it provides relaxation and on the other hand strength and energy as well as warmth.

Although everything depends on the shade of light pink it is. The softer the more relaxing.

But generally it is a color that invites relaxation, calm and affection.

The environments painted with this color acquire delicate nuances that can be absorbed by whoever inhabits that bedroom.

In short, pink is a wonderful color for children’s rooms. And, depending on the shade of pink, we will achieve one environment or another.

This bedroom is painted in a shade of salmon pink, stronger than a standard pink, and as you can see it is still sweet and decorative, although with more presence.

A soft pastel pink tone combined with white has been applied to this shared children’s room. As I said before, if pink is a pastel tone and combined with white, it creates a very sweet atmosphere.

You add wood in natural tones to the combination, you will also have a very warm bedroom.

In dusty pink, a shade of pink that closely resembles soft terracotta. Warm, natural, cozy … We can paint all the walls or create a painted skirting board.

If combined with white it is spectacular. You can also add cold color accents like blue or green, among many others.

We can also go to the opposite side, that is, use a very, very soft shade of pink, extremely soft, but with some saturation, like this beautiful pastel salmon pink that they have chosen to paint this baby’s bedroom.

Let’s see another color.

Blue color for children’s bedrooms

The blue color in children’s bedrooms has always been associated with the masculine character. You know, pink for girls, blue for boys. And although this is a boring cliche, the blue color for children’s rooms, either for girls or boys, is a great success.

It is a color that promotes calm and tranquility. In other words, it is a relaxing color. Among other things.

That is why it is ideal to fall asleep and calm the person who inhabits the room.

It also has a great advantage, and that is that being a color that is located in the cold part of the color circle, it creates the feeling that it is moving away, making small spaces visually larger.

Anyway, it all depends on what kind of blue and how it is combined. But what is clear is that it is a perfect color for these spaces.

Let’s see some examples of children’s bedrooms decorated and painted blue.

Again, in a greyish blue combined with white. And it is that this shade of blue is a trend in interiors, and especially for painting children’s bedrooms, since to the relaxation of blue itself, we must add the elegance of gray, which creates a very current color.

Let’s see another one.

In pastel tones, combined with white and with or without a drawing or pattern.

When pastel blue is combined with white, it makes the space brighter and furthermore, its calming effect is further enhanced.

In two shades of blue, in the form of a plinth with the darker shade below and the lighter shade above. A very nice and relaxing grayish blue.

Let’s keep going.

Striped in blue tones, one light to paint the rest of the room, and the other as a contrast in a darker blue.

Striped walls work very well in these spaces as they add dynamic decorative plus.

In addition, it is a very economical resource that adds decoration.

In dark blue, either to paint all the walls, one of them to create an accent wall or with a spike-shaped plinth, creating a decorative effect.

Let’s move on to another color.

Green color for children’s bedrooms

Green is another very successful color to paint and decorate a children’s bedroom. Well, actually for any room since it is a color that is associated with nature, it is fresh and relaxing.

In addition, chromotherapy assigns other excellent qualities such as calming the mood, reducing tension, transmitting security and promoting brain activity.

Combined with white and good natural light, the green color is very appropriate to decorate children’s rooms.

Let’s see some examples.

Another color that combines green very well for a children’s bedroom is blue. Better one of the two in small accents, but they combine very well.

Naturally, it all depends on the shade of green and how it is combined, to achieve one environment or another. To get it right, here you can see the colors that combine with green.

Now let’s move on to the next color.

Yellow color for children’s bedrooms

Yellow is a powerful color that promotes activity, striking, garish and recharges spaces a lot.

Although if it is combined well and in the right tone, like the other colors, it is a color that brings joy and happiness, as well as being one of the most effective light colors.

There are many shades of yellow and many combinations with other colors that we can use to paint a children’s room, as we will see below with these eyellow painted children’s bedroom examples, so you can get inspired and see how this color works in these spaces.

If it seems very intense, you can try adding a touch of yellow by creating a drawing or geometric shape, giving a yellow presence to the entire bedroom, but without loading it.

Orange color for children’s bedrooms

Orange is a color that provides a lot of energy. You have to be very careful with it.

According to chromotherapy, this color stimulates appetite and conversation.

It is a very stimulating color and should be used with some caution. Although as we will see below, if it is well combined, it is very tempting to paint a children’s room, among many other spaces.

Let’s see some examples of orange painted children’s rooms.

Let’s turn to red.

Red color for children’s bedrooms

Red is a very powerful color, with tremendous energy.

This color stimulates action, passion and aggressiveness according to chromotherapy.

For all these adjectives, and being in the hot part of the color wheel, it is a color to be used with caution and well combined with other colors to soften it.

For example, red combines very well with white, gray and earth tones. Colors that soften so much energy.

This color requires a lot of natural light to be well received, but if it is combined well, it looks great, as we will see in these examples of children’s rooms painted red.

As I say, grays and whites are perfect colors to combine with red. For two reasons.

The first, they soften so much power and are bright.

Second, that the resulting contrast with red is so powerful that a single wall of red that we put in will suffice.

We can also combine it with earth tones, either in plain, or as they have done in I Heart Nap Time, painting a wall with red, beige and navy blue stripes, adding red with subtlety but with success.

We can also go for a less saturated, softer shade of red, which still has the power, energy and vitality of red, but is brighter and less saturating.

They are just some examples of red painted children’s bedrooms. As you can imagine the list of tones and combinations is endless. If you are interested in this option, by doing a quick internet search you can find hundreds of photos of red children’s rooms to inspire you.

Now let’s move on to another color.

Lilac color for children’s bedrooms

Along with blue and pink, it is one of the most recommended colors for interiors, as lilac tones are relaxing and visually very attractive.

It also has the advantage of making the spaces larger since being a “cold” color it creates the feeling that the walls are moving away, like the blue and green that we have seen.

Combined with white or with a pink tone, it creates sweetened and enveloping environments, in addition to allowing it to be combined with many other colors, as we can see here in the colors that combine with lilac and mauve on walls and decoration, creating different environments.

They are neither the best nor mandatory, but these colors to paint a children’s room that we just saw, work very well.
