Elegant subtlety gives this shade a quiet touch of green while remaining significantly neutral, almost like sitting on the fence. If your kid’s room is small or if you are not so enthusiastic about the idea of painting their room green, this color will please everyone. It reminds me of a spearmint milkshake with very little flavoring. The styling that accompanies this color is very easy due to the neutrality of the shade.

The beauty of a pale shade makes for a relaxing and subtle environment that is ideal for a baby or toddler’s room. The fresh and uplifting feeling that emanates from Pale Vista will have a calming effect on both its occupant and you, as we all know a parent needs little calm from time to time. The bonus with this shade is that you can safely add colorful toys without the fear of clashing with the wall color.

There is no doubt that our kids live a hectic life with school, homework, sports, and clubs taking most of their time. In their free time, it is important to provide them with a safe and harmonious environment, allowing them to unwind and revitalize.

Such a sanctuary could be created for a teen with this color. A bold statement can be easily acquired by styling the room with wood, white or gray tones. The greatest advantage is the psychological impact of the shade which is said to alleviate anxiety and depression. It’s a winner.

Of course, this is not a guarantee as it does a great job, however, it is just painted.

The slight blue hue in this shade has a cooling effect on the room. If your kid’s room is on the warmer side of the house or if you are trying to save electricity and have turned off the air conditioning in their room, this color would work well.

The cheery elements of the color are uplifting and could help a depressed or nervous child. It is said that surrounding your kid with positive colors has a positive effect on their mindset. Worth a try.

Some may ask why this color would suit a kid’s room but stick with me here. This shade carries all the psychological benefits of green with a slight alternative to traditional green shades. There are several situations where this color produces a spectacular room.

In a light and bright room with floorboards, this color looks amazing and can be brought to life with the addition of red or other brightly colored elements such as some wall art. Another alternative is to only paint part of the room, either one or two walls or the lower portion of all the walls. White trim also sets off this shade beautifully.
