Tobi TV: 5 Tips for Fun Kids Rooms with Personality

Posted by

Kids’ rooms are some of the most fun spaces to design in a home! I love to fill them with color and character to fit each child’s personality, which also gives them more ownership over their own space.

In my farmhouse project that’s featured in the April issue of Traditional Home, I had a lot of kids’ rooms to choose from! It was a blast to create individual spaces for a range of ages and personalities. In this Tip Clip from Traditional Home, I give you five great tips for designing fun and functional spaces for the children in your life!

Aren’t those fun rooms? Let’s take another look at my tips for creating fun kids’ spaces:

1. I had individual silhouettes created for each child in the family, and then hung the art next to each bedroom door. It was a great way to highlight every child in the family!

2. One young lady has a more tailored style, so I created a preppy room in green and blue to fit her personal look.

3. For a fashionista in the family, I added glamour with an unexpected color mix of purple and red!

4. Rustic touches and a blue and red palette set the perfect stage for an outdoorsy boy.

5. And I designed this little girl’s room in her favorite shade of pink, but kept it from being too sweet by adding in jadeite green!

Using colors, patterns, and ideas that fit each child’s personality gives them a space that’s definitely all their own! Let me know what you think in the comments section below!

Fall Color Palettes

Our senses are so important to us – a color can remind us of a favorite dress when we were little, or a scent can take us right to a cherished holiday. I love creating those moods in the homes I design, where color is key to how a room “feels” to my clients. And since fall is at the top of many people’s lists of favorite seasons, it’s no wonder that fall palettes are popular. Let’s look at a few color choices that can bring those crisp autumn days into your home, especially since fall starts tomorrow:

Slide3

When most people talk about why they love the fall season, those bright autumn leaves are right at the top of the list. Who doesn’t love deep reds, warm oranges, and crisp whites? To keep those stronger colors from overwhelming your room, consider using them in fabric details. And then mix in lots of white to balance the mood.

Slide5

I love a good chocolate brown – it’s such a warm color, especially when it’s mixed with a deep gold like in this room. Popping in that touch of turquoise keeps things fresh and gives you a more unexpected color combination.

Slide4

Here’s another chocolately room, but this time it goes a bit more preppy with navy and kelly green. This makes me think of collegiate colors, which is perfect for the back-to-school fall season. You can get this color on your walls with Sherwin-Williams Porpoise.

Slide1

Speaking of collegiate, you know I love football, so any colors that remind me of my Razorbacks are going to be fan favorites with me! This red isn’t quite Razorback red, but it’s a great rusty red for fall palettes. I love it combined with a wheat and a creamy white.

This palette reminds me of a walk through the woods on a late-fall day. I love the muted gold, peacock, and moss – it makes this a cozy and elegant space.

So what do you think of my fall palette roundup? What colors do you love from the autumn season? Let me know in the comments section below!

Happy fall, y’all!
