Look for elements of influence:
Every girl’s room has influential colors or a theme to create the perfect color palette that doesn’t have to stick to pinks and purples. Look to nature for organic and natural colors such as sage green, coral, and layering neutral tones of mushroom gray and mint green for a room that is sophisticated yet feminine. These colors work great for a teenager who is wanting to be treated like an adult, but still love’s her room as a private retreat away from the world.

Choose colors that are modern:
In recent years children’s rooms have adopted more modern colors that help a young child mature in their room without having to “outgrow” the interior design quickly. Choose modern colors such as burgundy, red, brown to offset lighter shades of peach, tan, and gold to create a modern girl’s room that will match with any decor. Remember, pink is still allowed!
Just try bringing in other dominant colors to create a new look that you may have been looking for in your little girl’s room.

Gender neutral colors in her room:
While non-traditional colors may be on your mind, why not try gender neutral colors that feel at home in a girl or boy’s room? Aqua blues, grass green, chocolate brown, yellow and orange are all trending kids’ room colors because they work beautifully, regardless of the gender or age of your child.
Look in your favorite children’s department stores, home interiors magazines and on Schulweg – to find inspiring ideas. These colors work well in shared gender rooms with a brother and sister or in playrooms that need to blend seamlessly with surrounding rooms.
