My Three Favorite Color Schemes for a Girl’s Bedroom

I’m having some technical difficulties with my shop page today, so my apologies if you’ve gotten an error when trying to look at products. Managing a website can be frustrating sometimes!

Today, I’m going to share my three favorite color schemes for a girl’s bedroom.  The reason I love these color schemes so much is that they can be used for any age – from young girls through teenage years.  I will show you several fabulous pictures from each color scheme to show the beautiful range of looks you can achieve by using these colors. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

#1 Turquoise and Coral

Or aqua and coral, or teal and salmon…whichever you prefer.  This is my all-time favorite color combination for a girl’s bedroom.  Why?  Because these two colors are opposites on the color wheel, and therefore create a natural visual contrast.  I love the vibrant, energetic feel of the coral against the soothing and relaxing vibe of the turquoise.  It reminds me of a bright summer day at the beach. Here are some great examples of this color scheme.

#2 Black and White and Teal

This is a classic combination.  You can have fun using different patterns of black and white with pops of teal, or even mint to create a beautiful space.  I’ve seen this combination used in nurseries, and even master bedrooms.  In my opinion, I think this combination works best when the bedroom walls are kept a light color (white, aqua, or pale mint), and shades of gray are used, as well.

#3 Pink and Gray

Once thought to be only for little girls, pink and gray has become a huge trend for teen girls bedrooms, as of late. Pink is a decidedly feminine color, and pairs well with soothing gray to create a girly, yet timeless combination. It’s even better when accented with gold or silver bling!  Here are some examples…

    Wow, I admit black and white has always been timeless but that teal color….is just calling me! But so is the pink and grey too.

      Sometimes it can be so hard to narrow down to just one option! 🙂

    I love these color combinations! My pre-teen is leaning toward sage green for her wall color and brown accents, because she wants an “earthy” look. I’m going to show her these and see if she is open to other options. Thank you! 🙂

      Thanks! Glad to provide some potential inspiration. I’m sure with your guidance, she’ll make a fabulous decision. 🙂

    I’m partial to the pink and grey, but all of them are lovely! Thanks for sharing!

      I used to think pink and gray was only for nurseries or little girls, but there are so many chic and beautiful rooms for teens (and even adults) that are using that color combination! It’s been elevated to a sophisticated color palette for bedrooms in recent years.

    They are all fun and have a bit of an unexpected edge. I’m all for that. I think the first color grouping was my favorite. If you had asked me a couple of years back I might have said the black and white with infusions of color. I have always been a fan of black and white and did our last home in that classic pairing. You just can’t miss with it. The pink and gray is a feminine and sophisticated take on a girl’s room. I would be more likely to do it in a nursery. My daughter would want something a bit less sedate.

      Thanks for stopping in! I love the weekly inspiration I get from all of the talented people on link parties. My daughter has a teal and coral bedroom, and it suits her personality well. I think pink and gray would have been too “quiet” for her. 🙂

    Love this post for inspiration! I recently restyled my daughter’s room. It’s mainly white and has accents of pale blues and pinks. Very rustic and modern! Thanks for sharing!

    Such a pretty post. I love all these ideas. I do a guest room up for my little grand daughters and its so fun to make special for them. Theses ones are gorgeous.

      Thanks Leanna! What lucky granddaughters you have!

    So many fun possibilities! 🙂

    These are all darling! My grandson got married in our garden last year. Their colors were aqua and coral. Thanks to them I now have those colors in my outdoor space. I am going to show this to my 12 year old granddaughter and her mother. They are building a new home and Paityn is wanting blush pink and gold in her bedroom. I think she’ll love the pink and grey rooms. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
