What's a warming and welcoming color to paint a girls and boys room who share?

My kids are 18 months apart. Toddler and baby. I want to know what to paint their room, and any ideas on a cute theme? I thought about animails, or winnie the pooh. But I want a theme that they can grow with for at least 4- 5 years. I want something nice and elegant looking but with the right theme. I want a fun looking kids room with warming and inviting colors.

  • I'm always a fan of earthy colors. Like a green and brown - you can do a lot with those colors. You can also at blue and purple blankets,pillows, etc to it on their sides of the room. Add monkey's, trees, clouds...see where I'm going?

  • I would do solid walls. Use framed pictures, rugs and bed spreads as you theme. That way you can change the decore a little at a time as their interest change.

  • I'd probably go for a bright yellow or green... both are inviting, kid-friendly, and gender-neutral. Or maybe a nice warm chocolate brown. Blue & pink both look cute with brown, so that would work with them sharing. Maybe some of those stick-on wall decals as well? That way you can change the look a bit as they get a little older
