Real Kids Room Color Inspiration: Our Color-Based Pinterest Boards

Once you've committed to paint a room, how do you decide which color or colors to choose? You could head to the paint store, see what strikes your fancy and head home with some paint chips, but I think a better strategy is to look at real rooms. If you have a child's room in mind to paint, a good place to start is our Pinterest boards of nurseries and kids rooms - organized by color.

I've put together 10 boards filled with real nurseries and kids' rooms shared by our readers over the years and sorted them by color. You can visit all our Pinterest boards or peruse the ones that most interest you:

Yellow
Orange
Pink
Blue
Aqua & Turquoise
Green
Purple
Grey
Brown, Tan & Beige
White (it's a color too!)

Considering stripes, murals or wallpaper? We have boards for those as well:

Stripes
Murals, Decals & Wall Treatments
Wallpaper

Take a look and see which color you respond to most strongly and then think about which hues within that color are most appealing and which accent color combos you like- you may be surprised!
