Ezra's Animal Kingdom

Small Kids, Big Color Entry #42

Pin it button
Name: Ezra (8 months) Location: Oakland, CA

Color Inspiration: Forests and meadows and the natural world. Nearly everything in Ezra's room is animal and nature-themed (his mom is a veterinarian and a wildlife ecologist), and the green walls help bring a bit of the forest into what was otherwise a drab room. The orange accents also liven things up. We live in a quite old, small apartment, and simple things like adding a coat of bright paint on the walls, painting the ugly wall radiator, and adding some warm mood lighting really helps to freshen up the space.

Tip for Using Color: Don't be afraid to be bold with color, though allow for some calming tones and areas as well.

Colors Used: Behr Premium Plus Thyme Green. The Premium Plus is nice because it includes a primer, allowing one to paint a room in two coats and one day. Also used pumpkin orange and brown.

Thanks for your colorful entry Carrie and good luck!
