Happy Bold Kids Basement Playroom

This special play area was a big part of this basement renovation. We added tons of built in storage for big toys, open areas for creative play, and bright colors.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kelly Porter added this to 8 Colors for North-Facing Rooms
Chartreuse is a bold color choice, but in a shadowy space, it is tempered enough to not look so overwhelming.Try: Nervy Hue 6917 by Sherwin-Williams
Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Work With Chartreuse
A bright yellow chartreuse electrifies these adjoining rooms without much natural light. The greige on the separating wall is the perfect warm neutral here.

It looks wonderful with reds, oranges and blues, especially turquoise and cobalt. Bright chartreuse is a perfect foil for charcoal gray (think lichen on stone) and in modern design is often used as a pop against muted neutrals. It looks crisp and spring-y with bright white and vivid with purple.
