When Ashley Paramor of Nesting Sticks was preparing the nursery for her second child, she decided to use bold colors and create a statement wall. She took the mild periwinkle walls and turned them into a mossy green, in the process creating a stunning plaid wall. Ashley chose the exotic-sounding "Serengeti Plains" paint color as the main shade, but on one wall (against which an IKEA Leksvik crib will stand) she created a plaid pattern by taping off sections and painting them with contrasting brown and orange. The result is a unique, striking wall that's sure to be the standout of the room. While plaid's been on the radar in home decor for a while, do you think it works well in a child's room? How about on the wall? Let us know in the comments.
