Flying Close to the Sun

Bright yellow birds take flight in this kids' room, instantly making the space feel fun and cheerful. Bunk beds free up the floor and allow the little ones to play without a care in the world.

Country Charm

Pastel yellow walls pair with crisp white furniture to create a charming, feminine look in this bedroom. Plaid throw pillows add a country feel, and artwork recreated to mimic the girls' drawings offers a playful touch.

High Contrast

Vibrant colors of chartreuse, orange and blue are combined with muted grays and blacks to create a cool, contemporary spot for a kid to work or play.

Light + Bright

This mustard-yellow bedroom stuns with vaulted ceilings, lots of natural light from the sliding glass door and pops of color throughout. Double beds are outfitted with striped red-and-white bedding, paired with the navy and wooden boat oars and nearby corner cushioned chair.

Sweet Details

Lemon yellow walls brighten up this kid's room, while a white nightstand and shelf with charming scalloped edges provide ample space for toys, books and hats.

Eclectic Art

Turn a bare wall into a colorful gallery of your child's artwork. In this cheerful space, buttery yellow walls and a graphic-print sofa add to the joyful feel.

Whimsical Design

This yellow-green bedroom is all about creating an inspiring, fun and plush space for kids to dream. Hand-knotted yarn pieces throughout the room bring a sense of color, play and texture that's so important for kids' imaginations.

Bursts of Color

Golden-yellow accessories catch the eye in this mostly neutral kids' bedroom, featuring matching twin beds with intricately detailed headboards. The throw pillows perfectly bring out the colors in the floral bedding.

Under the Sun

This kid's room features a primarily white palette with pops of cheery yellow, as seen in the built-in storage shelves and curtains. A twin bed is situated just under the shelving, providing the perfect nook for a sleeping little one.

Bay Watch

A bay window allows for a window seat in this kid's bedroom and infuses the space with natural light. The striped yellow-and-white walls enhance the room's bright, sunny feel.

Bold Texture

In a go-big-or-go-home design approach, these homeowners paired a bold yellow-green color with bold texture for a fun, fresh kids' room. By using the space wisely, this room accommodates two twin beds with ample area for a play "yard" composed of green carpet tiles.

Forest Friends

Using a muted yellow as the base color in this room allows the wall stickers to really pop. This is a fun way to brighten up any kids' space.

Pretty Pastel

Crisp white walls, light wood floors and large windows create a bright, cheery atmosphere in this contemporary bedroom. A pale yellow accent wall adds soft color without disrupting the airy feel of the space.

Elegant Accents

This sophisticated kids' bedroom is filled with traditional decor fit for a princess, including pink upholstered headboards, a sparkling chandelier and diamond-patterned yellow walls.

Electric Yellow

Sunny yellow walls make every day feel like a day at the beach in this kid's room. A surfboard displayed in a corner enhances the coastal feel.

Cozy Cottage

A window seat and a picket fence-inspired bed bring tons of charm to this bedroom. The mostly yellow color palette really amplifies the cottage feel of the space.

Stylish Stripes

Walls with orange, blue, white and yellow stripes bring tons of energy to this kids' room. White bunk beds with colorful patterned bedding tie the space together.

Black + Yellow

Inspired by Broadway playbills, this yellow-and-black bedroom boasts geometric prints and art deco details. Closet doors depict a mural of the Manhattan cityscape in keeping with the theme. Black-and-white graphic bedding prevents the white iron daybed from looking too sweet and girly.

Creative Escape

Light yellow walls make a great backdrop for artwork in a range of pretty pastels in this bedroom. The mix of happy hues makes this space feel lively and inspiring.

Comic Strip Style

If your kiddo loves comic strips or cartoons, take a cue from this room found in the Peanuts Hotel in Kobe, Japan. The yellow walls evoke Charlie Brown’s signature outfit, while the pendant lights call to mind his baseball pitches.
