Haneen Matt - Bedroom

Homeowner Haneen Matt, right, wanted a bright and cheerful bedroom for Maleah, her 9-year-old daughter. A north-facing space, the room doesn’t get a lot of natural light. The solution? Color, in the way of a cheerful pink-and-yellow combo with spurts of blues and greens. For the upbeat yellow-and-white main wall, Matt used a lace stencil (Skylar’s Lace) from Royal Design Studio. The treatment adds interest and a touch of femininity.

Matt, who loves using pink and yellow together, brought her vision to life with additional pops of pink in the M above Maleah’s bed, the nightstand, the Euro sham, and some accessories. When Maleah turns 10, Matt plans to incorporate some new twists. She says she’ll be able to repurpose the nightstand and the ‘M,’ no matter what colors her daughter wants next. “She’s thinking white, pink, gold, and light blue — pink has been a constant for her,” Matt says. Not brave enough for colorful walls? Matt says to try to incorporate color in small doses through pillows, throws, or a stack of vintage books. “Color blocking with books is such a great way to infuse a color you’re interested in, for mere pennies!”
