According to colour psychology red color is associated with positivity and strong will. It motivates us to take action and signifies leadership qualities, self-confidence and ambition. Everything parents want their daughters to have. Little girls deserve all the encouragement in the world, and if red is what it takes to do it, introduce it in their room. Be careful, though, too much red can symbolize aggressiveness and anxiety, so stick to temperate accents. Here are some strategies to achieve just the right balance.
Although fiery red is something we instantly think of when someone says “red” there are numerous other shades of red (rose, blush, candy, brick, apple, berry, wine, etc.) that would be far more appropriate for a nursery or a kids’ room. These shades can be easily used even as a dominant color, or to paint a larger surface, such as door and accent wall.
Sometimes it takes an item or two to freshen up the space and provide visual interest. Strategically arranged fiery red items like a box, a redhead doll, a lamp, a chair and a pillow will create a natural flow and dynamic motion. Just make sure you have some tactic when displaying them: either group several red accessories at one place or put them vis-à-vis.
Most of the furniture in your girl’s room must be made of wood, including the bed/crib, shelves, dresser, desk and chair. This makes your job much easier, since re-painting the wooden furniture is actually quite simple. All you need to do is to scrape off the old paint, sand smooth the surface, apply a primer, take a bucket of red paint and get down to business.
Make your little girl’s room appear even warmer, by adding different red-colored fabrics. Start by giving her feet a soft place to land on with a red area rug, and then move on to drapes, bed sheet, blankets, pillows and playing nooks.
In the end, note that you shouldn’t just include red accents in a room with randomly selected colors. Some of the best hues to combine with red are white, black, grey, brown and other neutrals.
