Rich and bold, the hues used in this spacious playroom look just right, thanks to the use of some basic color how-tos.
While all the hues are intense, the ones used in abundance on the floor and walls are cool so they don't overwhelm.
Against this deep sea of emerald green and royal blue, accents in warm yellow and red
stand out in just the right proportion. They're energizing but not overheated.
Using lots of white on the ceiling provides visual relief from the bold hues. (Studies show most people are more comfortable in a room that's dark on the lower part, light on the top, to mimic the earth and sky.) Bright white around the windows maximizes the room's intake of light, further enhancing the feeling of balance.
Most of a child's responses to color proportions won't be at a conscious level, but they'll enjoy spending time in a room that feels both exciting and comfortable.
The whole family will find the playroom exciting and comfortable when it's got snacks and games to offer, like the one you'll find in the decorating idea on the next page.
