Cheerful Nursery Retreat

Small Kids, Big Color Entry #32

Pin it button big

Name: Jacob (8 months)
Location: Toronto, Canada

Color Inspiration: The inspiration of this cozy cheerful nursery came from the wallpaper on the focal wall. It is bold in colour and rich in pattern, but gender neutral and not juvenile. To compliment the happy yellow in the paper, pops of blue and peacock green, along with accents of neutrals such as white, cream, and brown, were mixed into the overall colour scheme.

Tip for Using Color: Listen to your heart when picking the jumping-off point. Don't be afraid of what may seem too bold. As long as you love it, that is all that matters. After all, it is used in small doses or simple-to-remove application (e.g., focal wall, pillows). If you back away from what you love and pick something else, the space will just be safe, and you will always wonder what the room would look like if you had gone for your number 1 choice.

Colors Used: Primarily yellow with complimentary colors including blue, green, brown, white, and grey.

Thanks for your colorful entry Eric and good luck!
