    Default Playroom colour inspiration needed!

    I am going to be making our spare room into a playroom for DD next week... only problem is I have no idea what colour/colours to do it (and hubby is of no help)

    The room is a standard 2.9m x 2.9m with a half wall window and a built in floor-to ceiling wardrobe. The walls are currently a light violet colour (very very light).

    I am hoping to make the room fun and bright however as its not a huge room I have no idea how to make it fun without making it too overwhelming/make the room feel small.

    Any ideas?? All suggestions welcome from paint colours to decals to floor rugs etc.
    Oh and I want it to be unisex design just in case we have a DS in the future.

    We are about to start converting half of our garage into a playroom. I was thinking of painting each wall a different colour but think I'll probably just use beige like the rest of our house and put up heaps of fun/bright pictures.

    What about wall decals? You can get big pictures to cover the wall like a tree with all different animals in it. That would be fun to find the animals.
    Or like balloons on a wall. Maybe keep the walls the light colour and put a big decal on one wall and a few small animal decals at the bottom of the other wall and leave one side blank. Will try find a site with decals to give u an idea

    We were going to do our dd's room checker we moved. I wanted to put a decal along the middle of the wall horizontally, to cut the wall in VB half, then do a bright, candy pink and bright almost lime green vertical stripes in the bottom half. Plain white on the top half.

    We have small bedrooms so painted only one wall in each a bright colour (like a feature wall) and put wall decals up.

    DD has a green wall with pink flowers and DS has a bright blue wall with vehicles on it.

    I'd keep the room a neutral colour and decorate it with bright wall stickers or bright framed pictures/canvasses.
    Feature walls are a bit outdated now, and you don't want to paint the whole room one bright colour which can be quite overwhelming for kids.
