Cheery Paint Treatments Make for Happy Children

One of my goals when decorating our house is to make it a distance where we’re all comfortable. I want my children to feel as happy and inspired in their chambers as my husband and I feel in ours. As with most children and parents, that means two entirely different approaches.

I feel inspired by neutral, neutral spaces. My children, on the other hand, love color. They get excited by fun routines; I can practically see the wheels in their heads spinning when they’re in a space that stimulates them and their imagination.

Color and layout offer great ways to produce a kids’ space more “them.” An inexpensive material, when implemented in a thoughtful manner, can add personality and pizzazz which will have your children jumping for joy. Here are 8 great paint treatments that will leave you itching to head to the paint shop.

The color scheme of the room is calming, but the layout onto the wall and the red details prevent it from getting dull. It’s a distance your kid may easily grow into.

If you’re still feeling anxious about brightly painted wall treatments, have your kids create brilliant art on large canvases, then hang the functions within their room. You are going to get the color they crave without the dedication.
