Your palette should consist of three colors— a light, medium and dark— as its foundation. Lighter colors should be used as a background.
The feeling of a room can be affected by using different combinations of colors in your palette. By rotating the three colors, you can place greater emphasis on the background or furniture. Typically, your eye will gravitate towards the darker, deeper colors.
Another way to choose a color or color scheme for your child's room is to take inspiration from the way color affects moods and perceptions. Here's an overview:
- Green. The color of nature, green is said to reinforce self-esteem and suggest hope, restfulness and calmness.
- Blue. Shades of blue, like the ocean and the sky, evoke feelings of calm, tranquility and spirituality, so they're good choices for restful bedroom.
- Red. Used as an accent to neutral colors, red can add some life to a kid's room.
- Yellow. Cheerful and dynamic, yellow is a great choice to brighten and warm any room. It's also said to be the color of intellectuals.
- White. White represents peace, faith, joy, cleanliness and purity. It reflects light, so it can make a room appear bright, cool and spacious. But it's also the hardest room color to keep clean with little ones around.
- Purple. Various shades of purple evoke different feelings. Children typically respond to the energy of bright purple.
