        Which color on which wall? Sign In/Join 
        posted
        Hello. We are currently renovating our home (a 40 yr. old red brick, which I inherited from my parents)and I have a 9 yr. old daughter who wants to paint all of her walls a different color. She has picked all of her colors, but I want to make sure the colors compliment each other by placing them on the right wall to pull the most light in. Her bedroom is quite small (8x10), and only has one window which faces east, so the best natural lighting comes in during the morning. Her (adamantly) chosen colors are all pastels of pink, lilac, baby blue and easter (light and airy) green. Which color would look the best on which walls?

        I don't think it will make any difference for light reflection with all those light colors. It's really going to come down to which of the colors look best against each other. Easy enough to take the sample chips and cut them to make a box that you can look at to see how the colors interact.

        Of course, since light reflection will not be a problem no matter how you set them up, you could always just let her decide which color goes where.
