It's where they can express and affirm their personality, nurture their dreams, fill with memories and achievements each single moment of their life, from playing time to rest time, and finally to their first important school tasks .
Architecture, pedagogy and environmental psychology have realized important studies about the importance of the rooms and spaces dedicated to the children, with very interesting results about the relationship between these spaces and the developmental needs of the children.
Painting your children's room, it should be given great importance to the color of the walls, since it could influence your children's mood. Scientist demonstrated that colors influence psyche and mood of who stay in a room, either positively or negatively.
