Primary Colors & Geometric Shapes

What do you think of when you hear "red squares, yellow triangles and blue circles"? It could be a new marshmallow arrangement for a certain breakfast cereal but not for this discussion. It may take you back a few years to your nursery days, playing and building with blocks and brings up more than a few questions for the design minded:
Are primary colors too juvenile? Can you design an entire room with almost only primary colors? How much moderation is needed? I love primary colors but I do think the type of room needs to be considered carefully before you go crazy with the red, yellow and blue. What's your take?
