Choosing a room color for the lovable kiddos in your pack can be harder than pealing Play-doh from your carpet fibers. It can be easy to give in to the bright pink walls for a nursery, or the orange and green statement wall in your play room, but that’s not going to make anyone happy! So we have compiled a few of our favorite kids room colors, whether it be a nursery, a tween room or a play room, we love these choices and hope it takes some pressure off your next paint dilemma!

Bubble1 | BUBBLE

Boys aren’t the only ones who can love the color blue! We’ve featured this gorgeous shade of Sherwin Williams Bubble in nurseries and kids rooms of both genders. It’s happy and bright without being too intense, it looks good with navy, bright pinks and coral. Here are a few rooms from some of our client’s spaces that show off this lovely blue shade!





White Dogwood


Next up is our favorite pale pink by Sherwin Williams called White Dogwood. Nobody said you couldn’t paint your walls pink, we just suggest a shade that doesn’t punch you in the face when you walk into a room! This is the perfect solution for an elegant and feminine wall color! Style Your Senses blogger, Mallory Fitzsimmons used this in her guest room, proof that it’s not just a kids color!

This color is a classic Navy that we are LOVING! We used it here as the stripe in this bonus room/playroom and love the dramatic contrast with the white! Navy is a neutral, and we LOVE the way it pairs with bright colors (as shown below with Orange).





The final color on our list is Passive, a pale gray that it a great selection for a gender neutral nursery (for those of you who don’t do a gender reveal prior to delivery), as well as a perfect tween bedroom color. Choosing a color that can mature with your child in the transitional age can be tricky, but Passive is a great option for both boys and girls and has great versatility.  We haven’t had the opportunity to use this in a clients home yet, but we have a few upcoming projects on the hook for this functional shade of gray!
