When you think of childhood bedrooms, what colors spring to mind first? For girls, probably pink, lavender or purple, for boys, blue, green or yellow.
Many times the rooms featured sloping ceilings, as they have often converted attic spaces, a very tiny walk-in closet, and a small window. Wallpaper featured tiny pale yellow and green flower blossoms for girls or trucks and sports for boys.
These colorful rooms were eye-catching. Each centered around a particular color while adding in accents and decor in coordinating themes. Most children's rooms were sparsely furnished but well decorated.
Teen bedrooms were another story. They were not necessarily pink, or blues but vibrant colors, with turquoise winning out in popularity. Themes ranged from heartthrobs to sports, to college or travel. Many times it was a mix! Again sparsely furnished but elaborately decorated.
