Why I chose these colors for the nursery:
My mom says that you should always find fabric that you want to go in a room before choosing paint colors because great fabric is so much harder to find (advice I haven't followed in any of the other rooms in my home).
I fell in love with this brown bedding with bright polka dots, and chose the paint colors to coordinate. I love chocolate brown with just about any other color. I wanted to include red in the room, but thought red and brown walls in such a small space would be too overwhelming so I chose brown and aqua and couldn't resist adding a few punches of red.
Two Good Color Tips:
Don't be afraid to experiment with paint. It's easy, affordable, and makes a huge difference in a room.
My sister is a semi-famous scrapbooker and I love browsing through her scrapbooking paper for inspiring color combinations. That's where I first saw chocolate brown, turquoise, and red together.
