The “colourfulness” of children
When choosing colours for a nursery school, most educators recommend a concrete allocation of colours, such as the use of subdued colours in recreational areas. In this way, colours are not overloaded and the children’s own “colourfulness” is encouraged to develop freely. However, entrance areas and halls are allowed to be more striking and to feature a high-contrast design. Conversely, in areas designed for relaxation and sleeping, strong contrasts would contradict their function. Primary colours aid orientation. The O.novo Kids children’s range applies this approach, using the colours red, yellow and blue.
