Behr is calling this year's trend toward zesty, youthful colours "Tokyo Pop", and Sico's 2011 trend forecast describes this same palette as "fun and slightly childlike." Naturally, zingy hues like lime green are great for kids' rooms and playrooms. And it's not just for modern homes -- here it is in a character-rich room with high baseboards, distressed wide-plank floors and French doors for a totally fresh look. Shown: Pastis 6121-42 (walls), Sico.
