Everyone needs some change everyone once in awhile and a coat of paint can make all the difference. Choosing a color for your kid’s room that is not only beneficial for them but also classic enough to last can be difficult. With some research into psychology and interior design, I’ve pulled some ideas to help you get started.


Looking for the classic neutral color that can work in almost any room with any type of light? Off-whites are calming and serene and allow the brain to relax. Muted color schemes with neutral tones promote a positive frame of mind with a cozy feeling, so your child can relax and have better sleep quality.

Off-whites such as ivory or eggshell make the room feel more open and spacious without having too stark of a tone. Feel free to add a pop of color with a muted pigmentation to add dimension to the decor without taking away from the serenity.
