Why I chose these colors for the nursery:
I used one of my favorite color combinations, blue, green and orange,
to create a cheerful bedroom for my son. He does need to sleep in
there so the brightly painted walls are broken up with calm, creamy
white ones. The playful colors pull together a hodgepodge of borrowed
and repurposed furniture.
Busy patterns and hopping bunnies hang over the changing table to keep
my son entertained. The fabric can be easily washed, changed and
rearranged. The crib mobile gets taken down at bedtime, making that a
peaceful corner. It looks like he likes it there.
Two Good Color Tips:
I put the bright colors on opposing walls to try to make this small
room feel larger.
This room only gets direct light in the mornings. The warm colors make
it feel sunny all day.
