Name:
Ellen
Location:
Waco, TX
Division:
Warm
Inspiration for my palette:
We had a teal and green bunting for decoration at our wedding and I thought the colors were beautiful together, so was inspired use them for the nursery. When I found the fabric for the curtains, I pulled the yellow color out of that.
Colors used in my room
Yellow, teal, green and light blue. And lots of wood tones too.

Paint colors are:
Glidden's Buttercup (for walls)
Behr's Peacock Feather (for the backs of the cubbies and it's a similar color to the FLOR tiles)
Behr's Bamboo Leaf (for the dresser base, the lighter greens had varying amounts of white paint mixed in)
Tips for using color successfully
Paint what makes you feel happy. And don't be afraid to go lighter when painting yellow. We had originally planned a brighter yellow, but after painting swatches, we went about two shades lighter.
