Decorating & Furniture/bedroom


21 and want to change my small bedroom colors - I now have cotton candy pink - I wanted to go with lime green walls but now think that might be too young for me - what colors would you recommend for an adult look but not too old looking - do you think lime green and pink is for a 21 year old?

Dear Pauline, I don't think that color necessarily goes with an age. I have seen pink and lime green in many types of rooms. I would start off with finding a color that works with the rest of your decor. What other colors are in the room? I would also consider what type of mood you want your room to have. You want to have a color that makes you feel good. I have lived in an apartment with pink walls and I absolutely hated it and when I painted it sage green my life became better. I also have lived in a space with dark blue walls and it somehow made me more depressed and sleepy. The color you choose can affect your mood more than you think. Send images to if you would like me to help you pick out a color that would look best.
