The time when a boy’s room was associated with blue passed a long time ago. Contemporary design solutions go beyond stereotypes and integrate colors in any way that fits the style and reaches the desired effect. There is no longer a clear separation line when it comes to a girl’s or boy’s room. Furthermore, parents tend to opt lately for neutral colors that, besides other benefits, can be adapted to any preference. Nevertheless, there are still some slight differences between the colors that are considered for a boy’s room and the ones for a girl’s room.
Let’s look from a narrow perspective at the paint approach within a room that is meant for a boy. Whether this is your first time planning such a design project or you are working on a makeover for your teen boy, it is not that easy to find a color that would match both your preferences, but, most of all, refer to his personality. Luckily, the range of colors prepared by us is wide enough to cover all these aspects. You have nothing else to do than scroll through it and stop at the one that feels closer to both of you.
Bluebird Feather SW 9062
This bright shade of blue from Sherwin-Williams with a slightly soothing effect and played-down notes of cool is this variation of blue that you cannot simply consider a stereotype. So invigorating, lively, and impressively positive that it cannot go unnoticed. Bold enough to bring energy into a kid’s room and intense enough to add individuality to a teen’s room.
Rock Garden SW 6195
This color is one of the calmest shades of green with intense notes and soothing scents from Sherwin-Williams, perfect as an accent for the nursery and base color for a kid’s or teen’s room. It is quite neutral, working impressively well as a backdrop for wooden texture and other darker colors. Nevertheless, a combination of this green with a splash of light color would balance the environment and ensure harmony within the interior and harmony between your child and nature due to the hidden bright green undertones.

A mustard yellow shade with a soothing base like that from Behr is a perfect source of energy for a boy’s room. It is quite bold, although the muted notes keep it within limits. A perfect accent to add visual interest for the little explorers. It would probably not work that well for a teen, but an appropriate combination with neutrals will surely keep you on the safe side.
Naval SW 6244
A dark naval blue that resonates perfectly with the ocean depth and adds individuality to the space. Considering that this is a very dark shade, it would work better in a teen’s room, although a few bright accents will adapt this color to a kid’s room as well.
