Color Inspiration: I started working on this room prior to finding out the gender of our baby and was having trouble deciding on a colour scheme. I found this great striped rug at Homesense and went from there! Almost everything else in the room we already had, including several of the letters on the wall.
Tip for Using Color: I didn't stress too much about matching specific shades of colour etc. I used the rug as my inspiration and if it looked good next to the rug then I figured it was fine in the room.
Colors Used: The walls in Cohen's room are Behr's Aqua Breeze (500E-2). His dresser is Behr's Aqua Spray (500A-3). His chandelier and lime accessories in the room were painted with some lime green spray paint I had on hand at the time.
Thanks for your colorful entry Marianne and good luck!
