Need tips for Toddler Room Colors!!
 
I can't figure out how to paint my sons room. We are moving and so our kids are going to have their own rooms now! We are upgrading him to a toddler bed and the bedding I bought is cute and modern. Just need help figuring out how to paint! His room is just rectangle. And also what color curtains should I use with your paint idea?

Can you do like a pale yellow paint and then some red curtains? Love the bedding, so cute

I like the idea of the pale yellow with red curtains too!

When we re-did dd's room everyone gave us such a hard time about the color- a really bright orange called Pumpkin Butter. But once all the stuff was in and it was decorated it looked great! do what you like!

I'd go with the burnt orange and blue color combo from his bedding. Do the walls with one and the curtains with the other.

I'm looking at the same bedding for my DD and DS who are both huge train fans. It's cute!

I would go with either the green or yellow for the walls (maybe let him choose?) and then the burnt orange for the curtains. I think if you did the walls blue it would be too much blue since it's the main color in the bedding. Super cute though!!!

I'd match the paint to the orange color on the underside of the comforter. Green, light blue, or yellow (shades that match the comforter) curtains. I'd probably pick the giraffe yellow.

I LOVE IT! we did our DD's room in a color called "poppy orange" I read an artical a long time ago, that said orange affects your mood in a positive way, and knew oneday I would have an orange nursery. I wish my husband would paint the rooms in this house for us, so we could do it again.

I think I would use blue on the walls...but in a tone that's darker than the comforter. Or match the teal color in the bedding. Then I'd accent with the orange for curtains and other accessories.

I think...regardless of the color you use it will look great! That is really cute bedding!
