Name: TBD (nicknamed Eeny Meeny), (due 11/28) Location: Calgary, Canada Color Inspiration: Early in my pregnancy, I picked up a Flensted balloon mobile while in Copenhagen, where my family is from. I loved how playful and bold the primary colors were, and knew instantly that this would be a focal point! In addition, my mother had gifted me two Danish watercolors with vibrant red and blue hues. I wanted these to be another major component of Baby's space. Because our space is rented, I could not paint; instead I decided to use daring colors that would pop against white walls, and was aiming for a bit of a modern Scandinavian feel.

Tip for Using Color: Don't be afraid to mix things up, even in a small room! I was initially only using complementary colors (red, orange and yellow), but found that adding small pops of color from the opposite side of the color wheel (blues and turquoises), brought a lot more depth to the tiny space.

Colors Used: Red, orange, and yellow with blue/turquoise accents
