Name: Finn, 20-months old
Location: Seattle, WA
Why I chose these colors for the nursery:
We chose the green for the walls several years before the room became a nursery. We were a little overprotective of our unborn son and didn't want to expose him to paint fumes by repainting. So we embraced the green and added a color pair that we love - brown and blue.
The combination of these three colors turned out to be quite soothing. Finn's nursery has become the most relaxing room in the house and a favorite place to hang out.
Two Good Color Tips:
The Colour Lovers site (http://www.colourlovers.com/) is a great resource for color palettes. I especially like to use the 'top' palettes and the search feature.
Don't be afraid of choosing a color for your nursery that isn't a traditional nursery color. The kids grow out of baby colors so fast!
