Inspiring Creativity: Design With your Child’s Creative Side in Mind
Since this month we’re focusing our creativity on the spaces kids inhabit (The Pinterest Room Challenge Room of the Month is the Kids Room), we should
probably also take some time to look at how to design a living space that will inspire a child’s creativity. Many people spend countless hours dreaming up and
decorating their baby’s nursery, preparing for their bundle of joy to arrive. But now that bundle’s here and you’re all ready for a change. How do you create a living space to maximize your child’s youthful exuberance and imagination?
First, I’d say it’s important to remember that kids tastes are ever-changing. Luckily, paint’s pretty cheap, and most decor can be swapped around when it’s time for a fresh look.

Even though I paint murals, I’d probably recommend staying away from a mural, instead going for broad strokes of color with coordinating accent colors. I would also recommend letting your child choose, if they’re old enough. I wouldn’t expect them to pick an exact shade, but if they say purple makes them happy, work some purple in that color scheme. The best children’s rooms I’ve seen aren’t afraid to ignore gender standards. Little girls can have lime green walls, little boys can have royal purple, there are no limits. It’s all about making their space inviting and fun and a place where they are excited to spend time, whether it’s to play or take a nap.
