I don't see the harm in it. Not like you can't repaint in a few years

I let my kids pick their colors, but my husband and I have the final say and have to agree with them. We recently painted my six year old son's walls, he came up with some choices and we narrowed them down together. We allow the kids rooms to have their personalities involved, but we also require that they still go with the overall look of the overall house, no neon green, bright pink, or anything else that just wouldn't look good. He chose a nice shade of blue.

Sure...I let my kids pick their motif when they were tiny..for Lilly, it was because she was being moved out of the nursery into a big girl room. She picked a light yellow with a bug ( butterfly/ladybug/bee) border. My youngest got to choose hers when she was 4ish...I had already painted it the same light yellow as her sister's room and the hallway, but let her pick the other decorations...she picked Disney Princess. 

When we move in the coming year, we are going to let them pick their own motif again..they will be almost 10 and almost 7 when we move.

I let my 5 year old pick her room paint. Its purple and pink. And more pink. Shes into pink. I figure paint is easier to replace than furniture so she can be mad that her bed isnt pink for now but she will thank me later. Im going to be so glad when we are out if the everyhing must be pink stage!

Absolutely fine! As long as she doesn't TOTAL control (or she could end up having a black painted room!) I think letting her pick it out (with your approval) is GREAT!

Sure. You could even bring home some samples of what she could choose (that you agree with), and let her pick from those. It's not permanent. May as well let her enjoy her room.

When we finally move, our kids will pick their own room colors. Their favorite colors are purple for dd and yellow for ds.

It's her room so why not allow her to pick the color.  If it's reasonable enough.

Absolutely, it's her room and paint is the easiest, most inexpensive thing to switch out.
