I agree with woogies3, and have experienced both phases.

When he was a young child, my son had nightmares and saw scary things on his walls. The colorful variety of a typical child's decor was morphing into
monsters everytime a car drove by.

I repainted his room in browns and made new curtains out of thick dark chocolate corduroy fabric. Changing the colors and leaving the
walls bare solved the problem.
