A single stripe is relevant to children of all ages. This adds a pop of color, while still maintaining a room’s simplicity.

3. Paint only near the floor.

Sharing a room can be difficult. By splitting the decor in half, you can satisfy both children’s personalities.

7. Mix patterns with bright colors.

Never feel tied down to painting each wall the same color. Be bold! Be brave!

8. Consider a repeating geometric pattern.

Circles are ideal because you don’t have to worry about them perfectly lining up. If they overlap, they just create an interesting shape.

9. Create a mural around a focal point.
