Ocre accent in kids room

When we think of refreshing a room, we often tend to look at the big stuff like furniture and flooring.  But many rooms can be given a fresh new look with just a pot of paint. Not only is paint very budget friendly but you can create so many different looks in hours. We don’t mean repainting all the walls but creating a focal point or some drama in a room, especially a kids room where you can have so much fun with paint.

With spring in the air, it’s a great time to refresh your kids room for the new season. And no colour feels better for spring than yellow – think all those beautiful daffodils in bloom. So we went looking for unusual ideas on how to add a touch of yellow paint to a kids room and we found some brilliant ones. The first one is that mustard wall pictured at the top. Painting a corner of the room like this creates an instant feature and will change the entire look of the room. And it’s so much more fun than painting an entire wall.

Yellow - green accent in kids room

We promised you brilliant and unusual paint ideas and this is probably the most dramatic of them all.  This looks so cool and actually makes the room feel bigger too.

Paint isn’t just for walls. Here they’ve painted the window shutters yellow as well as created a mountain style graphic design on the wall. The addition of the star stickers creates a playful and very cheerful look in this kids room.

Yellow wardrobe in kids room

Got a tired looking the built-in wardrobe? Paint it glossy yellow! This wardrobe creates a striking feature wall and we love that they’ve dared to go with gloss.

Bright, glossy yellow isn’t for everyone. So if you prefer something a little softer, why not try painting the top half of the wall in yellow? This white and grey kids room is brought to life with that half painted lemon yellow wall.

From soft lemon yellows to bright glossy yellow, with wall corners painted to wardrobes painted, there are so many ways to get creative with a pot of paint. These were some of our favourite ideas but there are so many more ways to create a dramatic yellow accent in a kids room – paint the door yellow or the floor. Or paint the window frame or even a piece of furniture. The options are endless. Which is your favourite idea?
