Yellow adds an upbeat and sunny vibe to any room. Some studies show that children who work or learn in yellow rooms benefit from increased concentration and have better memory recall. Of course, keep in mind that if you have a child who tends to fight bedtime, or wake up early, yellow is probably going to make that problem worse. If a room gives off too much of a “daytime” vibe, an overexcited child may find it very difficult to calm down. Yellow works very well as an accent color when it is paired with gray, blue, or green. This balance allows the positive aspects of yellow to shine through, without leaving the child feeling irritated or angry – as can happen with an overabundance of yellow.
When writing or coloring, children must coordinate their physical movements with information received from their visual system. Controlled movements are essential for handwriting, letter formation, and neatness in handwriting. Coloring helps with practicing coordination of the visual input with physical movements of the hands in very small spaces or large areas. Providing smaller areas of coloring require more controlled movements and dexterity. For difficulties in this area, consider adding boundaries to coloring areas, with darkened and thicker lines or raised boundaries like using Wikki Stix around the coloring area.
Red is an especially stimulating color. Some studies show that red even increases your heart and breathing rate. It has been shown to energize children, and potentially increase focus – making it a popular accent color for classrooms. However, too much exposure to red seems like it may trigger aggression in some children, especially toddlers. Red is perfectly fine as an accent color in a room, especially if you are trying to balance out cool colors. For instance, an exposed brick accent wall adds a splash of red to the room, without overwhelming the color scheme.
