Query: What color should we paint the walls in my son’s bedroom? I hereby attach a picture with the furniture we ordered (white-grey) and the carpet (blue-grey-white). Thanks a lot.
The concept is to work with the palette already provided: white, grey, blue. We opt for a sweet light grey as the main hue, since it is calm and helps the kid relax and focus on what he loves.
Small focal points that bring out caracter might be blue decorative details, that could easily be changed if you get bored with them.
Alternatively to a homogenous grey, we would paint a small wall a bold color (accent wall): dark grey or blue would both work well in the boy’s room. Another option might be a geometric pattern in grey color scheme.
Important detail: If you are afraid of a certian color, do not rush to eliminate it from your options. Buy one liter and paint yourself a couple of areas on the wall. leave it for a day and see how it is during day time or night time. Then decide the final color codes. Color hues vary a lot according to rooms direct and indirect lighting, orientation and color of the objects around them.
From our experience we siggest for the light grey : Vivechrom: D501G or Κ101D. Other option would be Vitex: 920-30YR or 965-30R (superb grey hue, looks good with both white and dark furniture around it) Dark grey: Vitex:950-70RB
Blue hue Vivechrom: Q232Ν. We have drid it in a narrow wall behind of white boy’s desk and library. The wall get direct light only a couple of hours a day. The result is a unique room for a very special boy.
