We'd like to offer a huge THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the Nursery's first Color Contest! We received so many exciting and colorful entries from moms and dads around the country and around the world. And, of course, we received whole-hearted participation from our faithful readers who cast their votes and left their comments.
We'd also like to send our hearty THANKS to Spunky Sprout for their generous contest sponsorship. The fresh, stylish and, yes, colorful finds at Spunky Sprout prove a great pairing for the the Colors Contest and we're so appreciative of their support.
First place: Sam's Chocolate Crash Pad
Quotes from the judges on Sam's room:
I thought the use of color was terrific - dark chocolate walls and white furniture as the backdrop and then dashes and pops of color all around the room keep it lively and fresh.
I love how the all of the accessories in the room, from the Ugly Dolls, to the animal decals give the room a light feel which playfully contrasts the darkness of the chocolate.
Dark brown almost seems antithetical to a child's room, but combining it with shades of green, blue and orange not only make those colors stand out, but makes the chocolate modern and striking.
