With the holidays upon us, there’s no better time to talk about the color red. In addition to being one of the traditional colors of the season, red is bold, happy and fun, so why not use it in your child’s room? It’s also one of those colors that fits within any style—modern, classic, traditional or retro. Here are a few of my favorite kids’ rooms that show how accenting with red adds so much personality to a space.

Some people say that a little red goes a long way, and it can inject a space with just the right amount of charm when used as an accent. The red lampshade and striped pillows are the pops of color this room needed to make it vibrant and fun.

Sometimes it just takes one little red “moment” to tell the whole story. A red rocker in an otherwise neutral nursery brings the space to life.

Red can also be playful. These modern, polka dot curtains and pillow add a fun, graphic element to the room.

An elegant, red damask is a sophisticated touch when paired with white and light blue accents.

Did you use red in your child’s nursery or big kid room? Did you make a bold statement with big blocks of color and graphic patterns, or did you add a simple pop of red as an accent?
