Decorating for the Artistic Soul

Kids’ Tastes Change Too

Posted on: June 6, 2009

Our kids probably learn the new trends and fads before we do, and they want them reflected in their clothes and in their living space.  They have quickly turned from the loud and attention grabbing colors of the last few years to the neutral, colors, textures, and prints of nature. The big bang colors are now found most often on their cell phones and in their hair!

Kids are no longer grabbing black as their bold statement.  But they are liking the monochromatic color schemes, so a room done in white, and several shades of grays to black…using no other color mixed in, is going to be to their liking.  This can be done in a tailored, masculine, modern, or even a frilly, feminine way.   How do you find out which they would prefer?  Look in their closet!  What are their clothes like?  Take the hint from that and run with it.

Paisleys, plaids, and retro patterns are still popular with the younger set.  And natural scenes, animals, wood, stone, shells, acorns…you get the picture. Green plants, preferably live, and some earthy colors, such as oranges and greens and golds can be used to brighten up the scene.  Outdoor themes; fall colors for the older kids, and spring colors for the younger ones; to make their rooms seem like an extension of the outdoors, fits in with the new awareness of nature that surrounds us all.

Accessorize with clay pots hanging from leather thongs or wooden beads, outdoor photos framed in rough bark or barnwood, antique tools or musical instruments. Today’s children are far more sophisticated than we were at their age.
