Pink is the color of choice for wall color just as soon as the parents discover the baby’s gender. If they choose to be surprised, well, then the parents-to-be usually choose a neutral wall color like cream or pale yellow, then accessorize mightily with the proper color accessories once the bundle of joy arrives.
Pink in the nursery works well, but how well does that pretty pastel translate as your little girl becomes older? Well, maybe right around the time that your little one is graduating from the bed with sidebars to a regular bed is when you should consider changing up the paint color. There are a host of different shades of pink in the medium to darker palette, but you can also be safe with other pastels such as lavender or pale green – even pale blue.
The reason that shades of pink seem to work so well is that we think of pink being all girly-girl and little girls being dressed in ruffles and lace and frilly items that bring out their femininity. That mode of dress is likewise transferred to the bedroom where young girls have pastel wall colors and ruffley bedspreads in cabbage rose prints with matching accessories and Priscilla curtains adorning the windows.
Pink is the most-classical option available for little girls who dream of fairies and princesses, all who are similarly clad in pretty shades of pink.
But, what if your little girl is a tomboy? Sometimes when there are boys in the family, and only one girl, that little girl must keep up with her siblings and she becomes a tomboy. She then may wrinkle up her nose in disdain over pastel colors or frilly objects in her room or her clothing, and opt instead for a whole different range of bedroom accessories and personal fashion.
There are a wide range of colors available to please your little girl and keep her room looking trendy. Some of the most-trending hues today are listed below. Each will add excitement and pizzazz to the room. If you’re leery of too much boldness and vibrancy for the bedroom, then go with a safe neutral color for most walls and add the bright and bold and beautiful color for one wall only.
Of course, you could consult with one or two people about the color dilemma if you really want to get that room color correct: 1) ask your little girl what her favorite color is; or 2) enlist the aid of an expert, i.e. an house painter in the East Brunswick, New Jersey area. House painting is his or her profession and you’ll get the best advice if you go this route.
In the meantime, here are a host of hues that are trending these days for bedrooms for girls:
Whether you are leaning toward a traditional or contemporary look for a youngster’s bedroom, whatever decision you make regarding that color, just make it as special as your little girl and you cannot go wrong.
