Color and texture within educational interiors add vibrancy, warmth and aesthetic cohesion. Lighter wood tones, such as natural maples and oaks, are becoming more common, as are bolder color palettes. Small color accents on furniture, such as table edges, can be used to help define zones. Larger splashes of color and bolder patterns, such as on lounge furniture, can be used to carry color throughout an interior. School colors also remain a popular starting point when developing color palettes. See the photos below for examples of how color and texture can define the feel of a learning space.
