Small Kids, Big Color Entry #8

Name: Brodie (1 month)
Location: Ringgold, GA

Color Inspiration: After months of searching, I found a fabric with zoo animals on it that I fell in love with. This fabric became my jumping off point for other fabrics, furniture colors, and wall color.

Tip for Using Color: Balance color with neutrals. If your fabrics, walls, and art are very colorful, then balance the room with harmonious furniture (all white, all mid-tone stains, all dark furniture). If you have a mixture of woods for furniture, then tone down the number of fabrics and repeat them around the room.

By using shades of white and off-white furniture in this nursery, the bright colors in the room stand out without being too over-powering. If the furniture were mix of colors, it would become visually cluttered and over stimulating for the child.

Colors Used: Wall Color: Custom Color- Paint: Valspar Flat Enamel
Bookcase Exterior: Benjamin Moore White Chocolate
Bookcase Interior: Benjamin Moore Moonshine
Crib: Benjamin Moore Distant Grey
Chest: Benjamin Moore White Chocolate
Side Table Top Coat: Benjamin Moore Little Angel

Thanks for your colorful entry Whitney and good luck!
