Pink and green are popular colours for bedroom decor, from little girls and tweens to married couples seeking a room that's both relaxing and not overly feminine. Hot pink and lime green add a funky touch to a tween girl's room, while soft pastels are ideal for a nursery or playroom. Use softer shades to encourage relaxation, and blend sage green with a dusty rose colour for a bedroom that is comfortable and inviting.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Establish the purpose and function of the room. A young girl's bedroom and playroom will require different furnishings and a different overall theme than an adult's master suite, and those differences determine your overall budget and motif.

  2. 2

    Paint the room with several coats of a semigloss or glossy paint to build a vivid base colour. Stencil designs or patterns using taped stencils, painter's tape or projected photos and outlines. Use acrylic paints to add detail to patterns or characters.

  3. 3

    Choose furniture that fits the theme of the room. Wrought-iron daybed frames and shabby chic repurposed furniture blend seamlessly with soft pastels for an ultra-feminine little girl's room, while a rich cherry bedroom set adds masculinity to a couple's master suite. Black furniture contrasts well with lime green and hot pink in a tween's room.

  4. 4

    Accent the painted walls with floral, toile, striped or polka dot patterns. Fit the patterns to the colours used and the overall style of the room. Oversized green and pink polka dots are better fitted in a younger girl's or tween's room than a master suite, while demure stripes or damask offer a more mature style.

  5. 5

    Accessorise the room with lamps, murals or wall decals, picture frames and accent furniture that coordinate with your style. Recycle or repurpose pieces from yard sales and antique stores for a shabby chic look, or renovate existing pieces to fit with bold and funky decor.
