Color experts-How to add color to kids room with slanted ceiling.....
October 29, 2013 in Design Dilemma
My 10 year old son would like green color in his room. The room has a slanted ceiling with a window. There is also a straight wall to the right of the patio windows (not entirely visible) in the photo and is high- 14 feet. In other words the room is a triangle. What is the best way to add color or partial color to this room given the shape? Thank you!

I think it is okay to paint the wall with the patio door green, but I would paint the other 2 walls a light color.

So, the straight wall to the right and the angled wall s/b a lighter color and only the patio window wall would be green.

cdrdesign's suggestion would allow the most light.

Painting the slanted ceiling in green/white stripes would be fun! How old is your son?

I think a lighter version of the wall color would work, but... make it matte (like a normal ceiling). We're used to seeing eggshell sheen on a wall and it looks fine but.. eggshell has a surprising level of 'shiny' on a well lit wall/ceiling! And you don't want the slanted part to look like a wall. I've done it before and using a matte paint helped a lot.
