I’m often asked about colors palettes for the home and for websites and so I decided to create a series of colors that I hope will inspire you to find colors for your home or blog! As I’m sure you know, colors are very important when it comes to your home and DIY home decor projects; they can make or break a room! Colors are equally important for your branding and website as they can equally ruin a website visitors experience and create a disconnect between your potential client and your brand. Today I’m sharing a fun color palette for a kid’s playroom.

I’m going to be honest and if you’ve followed me for awhile, you know I don’t have any kids. Even though I don’t have kids, I do have a niece and several nephews and no matter what, the one thing that reigns true for all of them is that they like to have fun!
They laugh, run around, know no strangers (even though for their safety, you want them to), and ask a million questions to gain a better understanding, no matter what, it’s all about the fun they can have.
With kids, based on their most important goal of having fun, I’d like to introduce you to a color palette for a kid’s room. It reminds me of ice cream, but that’s exactly what kids would love! I’m an adult and I would love it!

Colors for a Kid’s Playroom
I’m not an Artist, but I see the most amazing mural painted as an accent wall with the yellows, pinks, and blues. Can you imagine as a kid, walking into a room just for you with that mural? I’d squeeze every day in delight and excitement.
The main color of the walls would be the dusty blue with the background of the accent wall (mural) on a gold background. I’d take the wall of one of the closets in the room and turn it into a chalkboard wall so when they had the urge, they could write with chalk to their heart’s content!
Using this color palette for your website
Well, I’m going to keep the theme of kids because this color palette will work well for a daycare, an arcade, or even a summer camp!
Keeping the background of the website white, I’d use the bright colors for the accent colors; graphics, headings, anchor text, and backgrounds.
Remember how difficult it is to see a color such as yellow online, especially as heading colors. This color is best used as an accent such as an underline color.
How would you use these colors for your website? Which colors would you keep? Which would you change? I’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas in the comments below!
