As leaves begin to change into vibrant shades of red, and orange, it's hard not to love the month of October. So, it's no surprise that this month's theme will be all about color: how to use it, become inspired by it, and being confident in making beautiful, bright color choices.

What better way to celebrate this month's theme than by announcing our first-ever Nursery Color Contest!

Are you one who doesn't shy away from bold use of color? Do you love eye-catching splashes of it throughout your child's room? Then this contest is what you have been waiting for.
