Charlie's Primary Colors

Small Kids, Big Color Entry #16

Pin it button big
Name: Charlie (19 months) Location: Exeter, NH

Color Inspiration: For some reason, I was certain our second was a girl and I allowed myself to think very GIRL about the room. When we learned Charlie was a boy, I was stumped and didn't know where to start. I came across an inspiration board I had torn out of an old issue of Living Etc. with really fun red, yellow and navy blue and I just loved it. Didn't know where to start though until I found the curtain fabric at IKEA and everything fell into place from there.

Tip for Using Color: These colors can be kind of loud. Using small doses against a neutral backdrop mixed with lots of white and natural wood tone them down.

Colors Used: Walls: Hotel St. Francis Clay Angel (Valspar). Bureau: Custom mixed at Sherwin Williams (I bought their darkest blue but it wasn't dark enough so they kept adding black until I liked it.) Side Table: Sun Yellow (Krylon)

Thanks for your colorful entry Jennifer and good luck!
