Name: Cora Amelie, 18-months-old
Location: Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Why I chose these colors for the nursery:
I didn’t specifically chose the colors, it sort of came together by themselves in time while I was still imagining the future nursery (Cora sleeps in the living room for the first 18 month of her life). I had the striped IKEA fabric long before Cora was born, and when I was searching for ideas for the nursery, it looked like the perfect fabric for a curtain of a little girl’s room (being bright and cheerful as the child herself).
Two Good Color Tips:
1. ColourLovers.com is an excellent resource to experiment with color palettes, and if you’re not keen on making your own, there are thousands of available palettes to use as inspiration.
2. Having a small library in the room always adds instant colors and character to the room, even a plain white one.
Color(s) and brand(s) of paint used in the room:
We used Flexa (www.flexa.nl), with specially mixed color for the yellow wall.
