Colorful Nurseries & Kids' Rooms

Room for Color Contest

Children's spaces are a natural place to experiment with color whether by going bold and playful or, on the opposite end of the color spectrum, calm and soothing. Here are ten nurseries and kid's rooms with thoughtful uses of color.

Molly's "Put a Bird On It" Room
Kari's "Orange & Teal" Room
Dana's "Sweet Navy" Room
Dawn's "Princess Palette" Room
Sofia's "Striped Ceiling" Room
Nadia's "Yellow & Grey Sunshine" Room
Ellen's "Bright and Cheerful" Nursery
Margie's "Heavenly Hideaway" Room
Emily's "Citron Pop" Room
Katie's "Sweet White" Nursery

All of our Room for Color entrants are hoping you'll add their room as one of your favorites and help them move on to the finals. Remember, you can "favorite" as many rooms as you like during this round, so dive in and find some favorites!
