I know this isn't really crafty, but I really need some suggestions for these rooms. I'm open to anything: accent walls, chair rails, circles, whatever!

Room one: My youngest son's room. The colors are white, mint green, and brown. Great for a baby room, but he's turning into a toddler. I want a color that can grow up with him, but still be used for the baby room because when we have another in a couple years, Liam and the baby will have to share this room.

Curtains are light blue, and the white has faded red, blue, yellow, and green dots on it.

Room two: The boys' bathroom. I think the colors speak for themselves.

Room three:Master bedroom.  The colors in here are black, white, and gray. We want to put up some more black and white movie posters/ pictures on the walls-- all the art in our room is black and white. As a side note, I want to repaint the dressers in our room, but can't chose between the three colors. Any thoughts there would be appreciated.

(sorry about the blurry pictures. my battery was dying so i was in a hurry)
 Our curtains are gray with white dots, and the valences are black.

Since the colors in your bedroom are all neutrals, any color would make them pop. I like teal with grey so you could maybe add that color in.

I'm with mel on the grey. It is so versatile and can be matched to any changing decor. Maybe do an accent wall in a different shade or color.

Hi ValiantSeraphim,

First of all your home is very nice, one thing l liked most is the light coming from window makes the room brighter.  The window must be facing east, right?

For interior - I would like to share some ideas for your sweet homes.

For your kid's room - Paint it with shades of blue / green (lime green in short). Also you can paint one wall in chalk painted style where your kid can write, draw or paint his/her little words, shapes, images, cartoon etc. You can also try wall decals too according your kid's favorite cartoon character etc. Try the curtains which has made for kids only (animal print, scenery etc)

For bathroom you can do seashore, sea creature theme painting. Get curtains and bathroom accessories according same theme.

End of the tips; for master bedroom - Try different colour combinations of your favorite colour.  And get room accessories and furniture of related colour hue.
That's it!!

In kids rooms bright colors are looking good and i will suggest you to paint the bright shades to these rooms and curtains are awesome and i think no need to change these curtains.

For kid's rooms light colours are the best option as they brighten up the space. I have painted my daughter's room with light pink colour as pink is the most favorite colour of girls. I have no idea for boys choice but in my experience for boys, you can go for any light colours like white, green, anything, or the mixture of both.
