Light and bright colors are a wonderful option for small bedrooms. This for example is a shared kids’ bedroom decorated with tones of yellow, blue and soft neutrals. White is of course the base color. The symmetry is a nice detail that’s also worth mentioning in this case.
Dark colors are great too. They actually the bedroom very well as they help it appear cozy and intimate. Be careful though not to make the room seem too gloomy. Mix in some neutrals, work with a light base and maintain a harmonious decor.
