Aiden's Robots in Space Bedroom

Small Kids, Big Color Entry # 49

Name: Aiden
Age: 5
Location: San Jose, California

Color Inspiration: My son wants to be a robotic engineer and he told me he wanted a "robots in space" theme. Once I fell in love with the bedding I based the rest of the room around it.

Color Inspiration continued: I wanted to do something really cool with the walls and decided that since I was using so much color on the rest of the room that I'd make the walls a monotone gradient. After much research online I found out that a smooth gradient would be very difficult so I settled on gradient stripes. They took me a week to do. I also loved the look of some of the children's furniture from true modern but did not love the price, so I improvised adding a bright green background to the expedit from Ikea. It has glow in the dark stars and we "hacked" his malm bed from ikea to include LED night lights.

Tip For Using Color: Life is filled with color - theirs should be too!

Colors Used: The green on the backsplash of the expedit is Behr "Green Crush". The walls are a plethora of custom mixed Glidden paints. The orange is based off of the space bedding collection from boodalee, and the pale blue is as well.
