Kids love bright colors. And though many parents bulk at the idea of painting an entire room the same gaudy shade as a Crayola marker, a vivid hue on the ceiling can add fun to a child’s room without being overpowering. For an effect both you and your child will love, treat the ceiling as an accent wall. Keep the walls a neutral tone, such as white, and allow your child to choose the ceiling color. Kids will love having the freedom to choose, and parents can maintain a style they can live with.
