What is Indie Aesthetic? 

The indie aesthetic is based on individuality and independence. There are two camps of Indie, as the aesthetic underwent a modern resurgence in 2019-2020 labeled Indie Kid. Indie Kid is a bright, colorful style which rose to fame again through the app TikTok and centers around bright colors, 2000s-style fashion, and a skater lifestyle. The original Indie style did not include such bright colors and was considered more "alternative" by today's standards

How to make your room look Indie Kid Aesthetic:

Below are our Top 5 Design Tips to turn your room into a bright and colorful indie kid aesthetic room

 #1 Indie Wall colors 

Now before you start going design-crazy, you’ll need to pick a starting color palette. Whether you go with a ton of coordinating colors or keep it simple at just one or two, you should always have one foundation color to ground the room. Some good colors that really fit well with the indie kid aesthetic style include: pale yellow or green tones, bright orange or just a simple white foundation. 

#2 Indie Wall + Ceiling Décor 

Now that you have the base color for room, you can start adding vibrancy and detail to your walls and ceiling. This can include a collage of small posters of indie artwork, painted cd`s, vinyl records, bright luminous colored stickers, hanging green vines, floating butterflies, or a nice piece of tapestry. The general design idea is to have lots of contrasting colors and patterns that all compete for your attention, but together create a really unique aesthetic style to your room.
