Looking to bring a little color to the kid’s bedroom, but not wanting to go all out? Then colored accents are your new best friends! Use accent colors to bring small pops of bright colors into the space without going overboard with colors. Stay true to the home’s overall theme and still have a little fun in the kid’s room. Accenting the right pieces can be tricky, you want the accented pieces to be noticed, however, you don’t want eyes to linger on them. Start with a few accented pieces and then add or subtract from there.
Color is a great way to introduce the little ones into designing. They can quickly and easily decide what they like based simply off the color and if it will work in their room!
We’ve got 3 easy tips to help you create a wonderful beachy bedroom. These aren’t going to transform your bedroom into a coastal, getaway destination or anything of that sorts. That would be nice though, right? These tips are to help everyone with their bedroom, no matter what shape the room is in. Whether you’re just moving in or looking to change things up, these 3 tips will help you get started.

2. Keep it simple.
There’s no secret that less is more. There’s no need to go crazy in a coastal bedroom which makes your job easier. All you need to do is pick out your fabrics, a little art for the walls, a nice bed frame and one or two extra furniture pieces to decorate your room with. It will go a lot further then you think while leaving the space feeling open.
3. Decorate with white.
Decorating with white creates the feeling of peacefulness and relaxation. Who wouldn’t want to come home to a bedroom that invokes that every time they set foot in it? We know we wouldn’t hate that! So if you aren’t sure what color to use in your bedroom, you can never go wrong with white.
