I swear my clients say the darndest things! The other day my client was talking about the color of her kids playroom which was a rather boring, dated, just wrong green. It was Dried Thyme, a Sherwin Williams green. Is this a nice green? Sure, perhaps for a library, den or an office but certainly not in a room where young kids are playing and trying to be creative. So, she says, “How can you be creative in ugly?”
So what colors are best to promote creativity in children? Well happy colors! Youthful colors! Bright colors such as the ones you would see in their bedding or clothing because they are there for a reason.
Also keep in mind that there are usually both boys and girls who share a playroom so don’t choose a bubble gum pink if your boy is playing in the room. Try to choose colors that are fairly unisex. Here are some suggestions.
Always keep in mind that kids gravitate towards certain colors and it’s usually not what we would choose. And Moms, also keep in mind that it’s THIER room so choose a color that will make them creative.
