Team hits of colour – a zing of Haymes Gaiety, a slice of Haymes Pennant and a drop of Haymes Carib Green – with a classic and contemporary backdrop, like Haymes Boulder Grey, for a fun and unique look.

Striking colours are often most successful in a teenager’s room where they are able to help with the decision making process and create their own sanctuary, reflecting their individual personality and style.


If you’re wanting to give your child a room that is uniquely theirs, yet still ties in with the overall house aesthetic, neutral tones paired with accent colours in the form of accessories can be an effective way to personalise the space.

Keep it casual with Haymes Cloud Break, adding another dimension with solid blocks of blues, browns and purples.


Warm, bright and fuzzy, Haymes Cool Cantaloupe provides a fun and cheeky aesthetic where playtime is boundless.

Teamed with pops of pastel artwork, timber furnishings and a quirky rug, this earthy hue offers an invitingly radiant cave of creativity.


Organic, classic neutrals work well in both little girls and boys bedrooms.

Subdued yet dependable, Haymes Marble Mist provides comfort and serenity.

Add key, personal touches to help your child identify with the space and develop a sense of familiarity.

We hope we’ve inspired you with our kid’s bedroom decorating ideas! Just remember, decorating your child’s bedroom can be really fun if you let your creativity reign and work the space effectively.

Whether you want a colour scheme that blends into your overall house aesthetic or something completely different, the Haymes colour range offers over 1000 different colours to choose from.
