Why I chose these colors for the nursery:
Besides loving orange and lime (they are such cheery, mood-lifting colors), my husband and I wanted to create a room that was fun and vibrant — a special, magical place she could grow in to.
Two Good Color Tips:
1. Stuck for inspiration? Don't know where to start? If you don't have a print, maybe look at fabric or a toy that you love — and wish to use in your darling’s haven — this can be your starting point. Choose hues that are least prominent in the object, as this will help the inspiration item ‘pop’ more.
2. It's important for you to feel relaxed and happy in the space too, especially new mothers. Close your eyes for a moment and think about which colors make you feel good inside or colors you are always drawn to and make you smile. Now think about how you want your baby's room to feel. Do the same colors pop up in your mind's eye? If so, go with that!
