Location: Tampa, Florida
Children: Kendra, 10
Inspiration: My daughter's birthday present from me this year was a new room. Her space had become a complete disaster and a clean slate was in order. Plus, she'd hit the double digits and needed something a little more in line with her growing tastes (cough).
I took a look around at accessories she already had and found that the same greens/blues were repeated in quite a bit of her bedding. I suggested green to her and she deemed my suggestion acceptable (ha!). So that's how we found our colors and I saved myself from having to buy new bedding.
Tip for Using Color: Don't forget that you're creating space for a child - a place in which they're going to grow, imagine, dream. Make it special for them - even if it means creating something that's completely different from the other rooms in your home. I think one of the best things my own mother did for me was letting me have creative freedom (within reason, of course) in making my room my home.
