Child: Caden, 21 months

Inspiration: When my husband and I decided to convert a small, unused room in our basement into a playroom for our son, I knew that I need to paint the walls a bright, vibrant color to make up for the fact the room has no windows. I wanted Caden's playroom to be a bright, cheerful place, not dark and unwelcoming! My inspiration was Binth's alphabet poster. As soon as I saw the poster, I knew that the bright oranges and soft greens would be a perfect color combination for the room: modern, playful and fun! Caden loves his playroom, and I'm so glad we were able to create a fun space for him.

Tip for Using Color: Don't be afraid of a bold, bright color; just use it in smaller amounts. I used orange on the bottom third of the wall, and painted the rest of the wall a soft green. That gave me the perfect pop of color, without being overwhelming.

Colors Used: Wall colors: Benjamin Moore Calypso Orange and Vale Mist. Trim and ceilings are Simply White.
