INSPIRE YOUR CHILD'S IMAGINATION
In my opinion, there is no better way to stimulate your child's imagination and creativity than with a wall mural in their space. Many psychological studies have shown that colors can affect a child's personality. Red can stimulate your child's mind with emotional feelings of excitement and passion but too much red can cause anxiety and restlessness, even anger and agressiveness; yellow is generally considered to be a sunny cheerful color that encourages energy and resourcefulness but too much yellow can have an irritating, disquieting effect; blue has a peaceful calming effect that can make your child productive and encourages the thinking process and motivation; orange can stimulate impulsive reactions, ambition, melodrama yet too much orange can cause feelings of confusion and agitation; green has a soothing comforting effect that encourages calm rational thought processes; purple can make your child alert and heightens the adventurous spirit, courage, enthusiam, ambition. These are all natural human emotions and qualities that should be allowed to flourish and develop in young minds. A wall mural that uses all these colors in combination can only act to stimulate a child's creativity and nurture his imagination to build a strong well-rounded character.
Parents should not only consider the “psychology of color” when choosing colors for their child's bedroom but, of course, the child's interests when choosing a theme for a wall mural. Commission a Furry Forest Friends woodland creature mural, a princess mural, a dragon castle mural, a balerina mural, a race car mural. With a custom designed mural, your choices are endless. I would be delighted to design a custom mural for your child's specific wall or entire room around any theme or subject that peeks his/her interest. My murals are custom designed based on your vision and hand painted to suit your room dimensions decor and color choices.
It is also important to remember that eye level for preschool children is below 3 ft. Most of my preschool murals have the bulk of activity painted on the bottom half of a wall and are blended into the upper half. This keeps the wall from becoming too busy and visually overwhelming. Consider the Bunny Mural shown above - in this painting, all the bunnies are engaged in activities at or below the 3 ft. wall height. Flowers and foliage are blended into the upper portions of the wall to continue the fantasy and add depth and perspective to the wall.
