8 Bright Color Theme Classroom Decor Ideas

A vivid bright color theme classroom would have all of the bright rainbow colors with the addition of pink. The colors cannot be too light or it would be too pastel. Neon colors are great for this theme. Bright bulletin board lettters and trims really stand out on a black background so you should always try to have contrast to show up the bright accents more.
