Pink and Blue needn’t be the only colours for little girls’ and boys’ rooms. Historically they were not, and manufacturers did this so that parents would buy matching sets in bulk.
If one looks further a lot of bright and pastel shades suit children’s rooms. For a girls room pastel shades do give the room a “girlie” touch. It can also be theme based, not necessarily of the pink fairytale princess but also other books or kids movies. One trending movie for girls is Frozen, where a lot of blues and whites are visible. For boys, you can select any favourite sport or cartoon character. This automatically gives a variety of options, where one can pick the colours used by a favourite sports team or the shapes and colours of all the accessories used in the game.
Other options can be worked out with the play of bright colours and shades in the form of basic shapes. For example, polka dots are an all-time favourite for children.
While checks and stripes can be extensively used in boys’ rooms, floral patterns are a big hit with girls’ spaces. Even a white themed room can be given colours by the use of colourful babies/kids
items like mobiles, like in the picture on the right.
