When decorating a kids room, obnoxiously colored walls don‘t have to be your first step. In fact, we believe that keeping walls white or gray and adding in smaller bits of color gives you even more possibilities to make a kids room creative and playful. That, and it will keep you from repainting when they outgrow lime green or Barbie pink walls in three years. Trust us. When it comes to finding colorful accents, first consider what your child already has. Children‘s books and stuffed animals are often fun colors, so put them in a place that doubles as decor. Wall decals, bedding, and rugs all can add color and pattern to a kids room, but can be easily changed with age.
When it comes to using wood, there are so many variations to try. To create a sleeker, contemporary headboard look, sand and slightly whitewash the wood slats so they don’t feel rough, look dirty or too rustic in appearance. For extra design appeal, try offsetting your headboard for an asymmetric effect like the image below. Take furniture and home accents and give them new life as a headboard. Some furniture-as-headboard ideas include: If you have the space, float a dresser, cabinet or desk in the room with enough space to open the drawers on one side and with the back of the furniture piece as your headboard. The best part is that you can sit lamps or other objects on the dresser to shine over you when reading in bed. If your dresser back is unfinished, paint it or line it with wallpaper.
For a modern bedroom that highlights your bedding, tie in your accent color theme with your bedroom‘s headboard, a wallpaper wall behind the bed or bold, large wall art.
A bedroom without a headboard is like the perfect outfit without the right shoes.

Headboards can sometimes be thought of as big and bulky, however, regardless of the size of the room, a headboard doesn’t need to take up much space at all. In fact, if your bedroom is small or crowded, getting rid of a bedroom frame and replacing it with a headboard is a great way to reclaim valuable space in your bedroom. If you’re on a budget, the recycled headboard is often the coolest and least expensive headboard style. Grab some inspiration and take a trip to your local thrift store for supplies. Some headboard ideas made from recycled objects include:
Laughing…crying…playing…fighting. A shared sibling bedroom is a beehive of activity and needs. And that means there`s a lot for parents to tackle when creating their kids' shared bedroom. With twice the amount (or more) of evolving personalities and necessities, it`s often a daunting task for parents to accommodate storage, space and the individual style of each child. Designing a room for a brother and a sister doesn`t have to be challenging. In fact, it`s probably the easiest challenge to overcome when planning a shared room. To complement your underlying palette, layer complementary colors and patterns on top of that. For example in a grey and white room, try accenting with yellow accessories.
