Consider how you want your child to use a space. A more simple, neutral space promotes calm and focus.
Whereas, lots of colour is great for active areas of the home and backyard. For example, if you have an indoor gross motor area with a climber, balance board, stepping stones, etc, this is a great place to add colour.
Don't be afraid of a little beige
Sometimes we, as adults, think children want all the bright, loud colours or that beige is "boring".
This is just one those things we project onto our children. If a child is bored in an area of their home, it’s unlikely that it’s because it’s not colourful enough and more likely that it’s because there aren’t interesting materials/toys for them to explore and work with.
Removing distractions and extra toys is only likely to enhance play.
