Name: Henry, six-months old Location: Brooklyn, NY 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.

Color(s) and brand(s) of paint used in the room: Sweet Orange, Pear Green, Jamaican Blue, Mayonnaise all Benjamin Moore
