I first shared with you the K-12: 10 Tips for Creating a Girl’s Bedrooms She Won’t Outgrow.

In this roundup, I put together the tips I’ve kept in mind when decorating my son’s bedroom. It might feel a little daunting to think: Will he still like this when he’s fifteen? Really though, it’s not hard at all to come up with decor that is both playful and mature.

Choosing a Color Palette

When you're first sitting down to decide where to start decorating, pick a color palette you confidently feel will grow with your child. The color palette sets the mood, so it might be darker tones that you want, or maybe you'll decide that lighter hues are the way to go. Choose colors that you know can pretty much go with anything, especially new linens.
