the colors in those pieces as an accent in other places throughout the room. Curtains, rugs, lamps, piggy banks, pillows, picture frames and more can provide opportunities for color throughout your child’s room without committing to an entire room of bright walls or flooring. The benefit of keeping the color in the accents is that you can easily swap them out in the future as your child’s tastes change. 5. Use Toys as Decor. Your kid’s toys are most likely already there, colorful, and reflect what your child loves. Find ways to place them, when not being used, around the room to boost the space. Put dolls on wall-mounted shelves or build a storage wall of cubbies where the toys can add pops of color to the space. Organize toys by color to create a rainbow effect along the wall.
6. Enhance the Ceiling.
Ceilings aren’t often factored into a room design, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be! To liven up the space, you can paint a pop of color on the ceiling, just like an accent wall, or you can even apply a fun wallpaper. A timeless pattern or design will enhance a space without overwhelming it, since most people only really see the ceiling in their peripheral vision.
