Who hasn't been stumped on ideas on what colors to paint your children's rooms? Deciding on a palette is like a neverending tug-of-war between a color that looks young and a color that will last until they mature. If you don't know what color to pick, check out these color schemes that strike a balance between those two:

1. Melon and White

This color scheme has just the right amount of lightness and whimsy. If you find pink too tacky to use in your little girl's room, this can be a more toned down alternative.

2. Gray and White

No, gray won't make your child's room look sad and lifeless. In fact, a gray-and-white bedroom will definitely last long from your child's infancy up to his tween or teen years. It's gender-neutral, too. Just play around with furniture and decor—display more whimsical ones like buntings or paper moon and clouds during his toddler years, then add a wooden desk, a full-size bed, and shelves for his books and toys as he grows older.

3. Blush and White

We're not telling you to totally ditch the color pink. In this bedroom, blush (a lighter tone of pink with a tinge of gray) combined with white makes for a dainty and feminine palette for its young occupant. Add some gold accents to make the look a bit more sophisticated.

4. Seafoam Green and Pink

Seafoam green adds a dose of color to any room and yet it is still neutral enough to easily be paired with other hues. Complement this color with light yellows or pinks for a dainty combination, or pair it with light to medium grays if you want to create a more boyish look.

5. White and Patterns

With white, you can match anything—patterns included. When you're stumped on color ideas, experiment with patterns. They can instantly make your child's room look lively and playful. Go for patterned beddings or rugs so you can simply change them if you don't want to work with these patterns anymore.

6. Primary Colors

Combining primary colors is also one of the easiest ways of coming up with a color palette for your kids' rooms. Just make sure each of the colors—red, blue, and yellow—are given equal exposure so they won't look like they are competing for attention.
