It's nothing new that we love color-blocking here at Oh Joy! There are SO many fun ways to color-block with shelves (like this or this). But for this bright, whimsical playroom, we thought it would be fun to add in painted color-blocked walls and then incorporate shelving into the space. It creates a great focal wall that is stylish, functional, AND allows you to introduce even more color into your space. Check it out...

We placed two smaller shelves onto the small blue square, a longer self on the pink rectangle, then we placed three small shelves on the opposite wall. There is no exact formula, so have fun with it! Do whatever fits your painted shapes and is practical for your space.

The combo is SO fun and creates a functional and playful area of interest to any space!
